My Dear Friends, Clients and Colleagues,
I read this authentic quote from one of our founding fathers this week...
"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb deciding what to have for lunch. Liberty is the well-armed lamb contesting the vote" - Ben Franklin
Please remember after leaving the rule of England, our founding fathers saw strife and difference of opinion as a strength, not a weakness for our country. I laughed when I read this quote, because I believe that nothing can sum up 2020 better. Strategically, we are all having to adapt and our real estate market is a reflection of this paradigm shift within our culture. I am thankful for this tenacity within our country and our ability to adapt. I'm thankful for this beautiful place I get to call home. I am cautiously optimistic that somehow through this bizarre year we are truly going to grow into a stronger nation.
As you all know by now, Lake Tahoe has been one of the many communities that people are gravitating to in great numbers. Our community has experienced the biggest real estate boom that I have witnessed in my 17-year career as a broker. With inventory tight and telecommuting to tech jobs the new norm, I believe we are going to see continued growth and consistency in our market well into 2021. We are currently experiencing the tightest inventory we have seen in decades and in both states California and Nevada, we have seen a 23%-27% price jump since the beginning of the year. Listings (if priced in the market) are seeing multiple offers and buyers are actively trying to get in. The entry level homes have been wiped out by second home entry level buyers, the luxury market is very strong and there are many mega estates on the lake now being offered for the first time in decades.
For our Buyers - It's worth spending the time to position and be perched and ready to offer quickly as inventory is not sitting long and there is a ton of pent up demand.
For our Sellers - I have never seen a better time to sell your estate or property. So stay tuned and if you have been considering selling, let's start a dialogue and see if now is a good time for you to reposition your assets and navigate these changing times.
It's my hope moving into winter, that we can forge ahead and successfully navigate these changing times with style, grace and collaboration.
"A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.” - buddha
This month, due to the loss of Nate's grandfathers who died of prostate cancer and his cousin who had testicular cancer, we have adopted the foundation known as MOVEMBER which is focused on men's health and cancer research. I wanted to formally invite you to grow a mustache on your lips and join us in this awkward yet rewarding endeavor. We welcome you to join us by tagging us in your goofy moustache pictures on instagram @DavidGemme
Kind Regards, David Gemme
