It was another spectacular week for Incline Village real estate sales. The market is really hopping with 15 properties going under contract, 11 new listings and 16 places closing escrow. We saw a demand in the single-family marketplace making up 12 of the 15 accepted offers, with a median property under contract coming in at $1,699,000. Sales totals on the Incline Village MLS continue to track about 15% behind of last year for single-family homes due to the still low inventory in our market. Condo and freestanding condo sales in units are almost identical with 2016.
The properties going under contract last week ranged from $599,900 up to $12,000,000. Inventory levels are still low for this time of year with only 11 new properties coming to market in the last week. The summer crowds are steadily trickling in, but some winter-like weather has come in as well, with snow expected for this evening and tomorrow.
Dave had a great week closing on #22 Alpine Terrace for his Buyers. Sabrina listed a nicely maintained single-family property with lakeviews at 922 Dorcey, which will be hitting the market for $585,000. The property is in the process of being prepared for sale with photos coming soon. We anticipate having the listing up and running on the Incline Village MLS sometime in the next few days.

While new listings are coming on the Incline Village MLS every week we are seeing multiple offers on a more frequent basis.

Please be careful when you are driving around Lake Tahoe this summer. We anticipate more visitors than at any time in the past 5 years.

A little bit of courtesy will prevent accidents and get everyone to their destination just a bit quicker.
