Valuable News from Paradise Real Estate
January 2011

Happy New Year to our Readers!


We are looking forward to an improvement in the South Lake Tahoe Real Estate Market in 2011. In order to set the benchmark for 2011, I would like to review 2010 in it's entirety.


I will cover a few of the important metrics in this newsletter. You will be able to click any graph to view larger.


South Lake Tahoe Single Family Homes: Total Sold- (The first three graphs exclude Tahoe Keys to minimize skewing)



  •  As you can see throughout 2009 & 2010 "homes sold" is trending in the positive direction.

However, if you combine the distressed sales, the total distressed homes sold increased by a total of 22%.

 Tahoe Keys- Total Units Sold

South Lake Tahoe, CA Condo's: Total Sold

  • Total condo's sold in South Lake Tahoe, CA went from 32 in 2009 to 55 in 2010. That is a 72% increase in one year!

Distressed Sales of Condos in SLT, CA

  • Here bank owned condos show a small increase in sales, and short sale condos show a significant increase in sales. Therefore, total distressed sales of Condo's in South Lake Tahoe, CA have increased 80% in the last year.

In summary, the total of sales has increased from 2009 to 2010 which is a positive trend. However, a good portion of these homes are distressed sales, in some cases 50% of homes sold were distressed. Until we stop seeing so many distressed sales on the real estate market we still have recovering to do.
