Incline Village Real Estate: Condos 

Condominiums offer buyers the opportunity to own real estate in Incline Village for less than the price of most single-family homes and with less maintenance. So, it’s easy to see why they’re one of the most popular segments of the market. Some buyers are looking for a place to lay their head at night after a big adventure, while others want a second home rather than a primary residence. Either way, condos offer the perfect solution. 

In Q3, the median price for a condo in Incline Village reached $846,750, about 6% higher than last quarter and 18% higher year-over-year. This graph also shows the number of available units decreased by about 18% from the previous year. 

From July to September 2021, the number of condos sold decreased by about 50% compared to the previous year. This is due to the surge of people buying and selling real estate after the economic shutdown. However, condos are selling faster than before,  staying on the market for an average of 46 days versus 52 days at this same time last year. There were 20 more condos available than last quarter, which indicates the difference in demand for single-family homes during the warmer months and condos in the colder months. 

With freezing temperatures and the first snow hitting the headlines, we expect to see condo sales increase over the next quarter. If you can live luxuriously without putting in the effort of maintaining thousands of square feet, then why not? Shoveling snow can quickly become an all-day affair for some properties in the Eastern Sierra Nevadas.

Incline Village Real Estate Update: Single-Family Homes

Single-family homes in the Incline Village market experienced the largest price increase during the third quarter of 2021. At the same time, we saw a decrease in the number of homes available, units sold, and days on the market. 

Remember that luxury homes in the Incline Market are defined as those with a median price of more than $1 million, and one sale can significantly impact the overall statistics. 

For example, there was a $32 million home that sold during the third quarter of 2021. The 14,000 square-foot lakefront property offers panoramic views of Lake Tahoe and has plans to build an indoor bowling alley, movie theater, and shooting range. 

Although not all single-family homes have this market value, you can see how a sale like this can affect the numbers.

With this in mind, the median home sale price for a single-family home was $3,498,000, a 32% increase from the previous quarter and a 119% increase year-over-year.

Advice for Buying and Selling Real Estate in Incline Village

The Incline Village housing market typically slows down in the fall, but the pandemic has largely impacted prices and sales. Although the market is showing signs of balancing out, we’re expecting demand to remain strong as we transition into the next quarter and upcoming year. 

Lake Tahoe is a popular destination for winter ski trips and holiday vacations, which influences many people to consider buying a primary or second home in the market. This trend can cause a drop in available inventory because existing homeowners are less likely to sell in the snowy months. 

If you’re looking to buy or sell a home, you’ll want first to consider these Incline Village housing update recommendations:

  • Sellers: Housing prices have reached an all-time high, and homes are selling quickly. So, if you’ve been thinking about moving elsewhere and want to list your Incline Village property, now is the time to take advantage of the market. We’re expecting demand to continue into 2022, and a decrease in supply during the holidays will help you get the best price possible for your home. 
  • Buyers: Some competition has finally left the market, which means you can breathe a little easier. But don’t wait too long for prices to level off or decline because you might miss out on the home of your dreams. This is an excellent time to get your finances in order so that you can meet the speed of the market. You’ll also want to take advantage of the record-low mortgage rates as experts are expecting to see them rise in the following months.

Maximize Your Tax Deductions This Season Through Local Charity

With the holiday season approaching, now is the time to start thinking about giving back to the community and those in need. What better way to do that than to maximize your 2021 tax deductions? For individuals who itemize their federal income taxes, the cap on deductions taken for annual contributions has been lifted from 60% to 100% of your adjusted gross income (AGI) for cash gifts to public charities.

This charitable incentive was made possible through the 2020 Cares Act, which extended to December 31, 2021. You can now partner with nonprofit organizations like Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation to take advantage of this great opportunity. Located in Incline Village, the Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation supports the Lake Tahoe region by partnering with donors to make their charitable giving meaningful. It has granted over $83.5 million to charitable causes since its inception. If you’d like to learn more about how to maximize your charitable giving this year, click here
