10 Reasons to buy a Home in Lake Tahoe, Nevada

by Lakeshore Realty
  • Here are 10 reasons why you should consider buying a home in Lake Tahoe, Incline Village Nevada

1. You can get a good deal. Especially if you play hardball. This is a buyer's market. Most of the other buyers have now vanished, as the tax credits on purchases have just expired. We're four to five years into the biggest housing bust in modern history. And prices have come down a long way on the Lake Tahoe real estate market, just remember that waiting for a long time before you pull the trigger might not be the best idea since the Lake Tahoe region is unique, and even if Nevada is one of the states hit hardest by the recent recession, properties in this area will always have suitors since Nevada doesn't have a state tax, making properties very appealing for second home buyers and people looking for a retirement home.

2. Mortgages are cheap. You can get a 30-year loan for around 4.3%. What's not to like? These are the lowest rates on record. As recently as two years ago they were about 6.3%. That drop slashes your monthly repayment by a fifth. If inflation picks up, you won't see these mortgage rates again in your lifetime. And if we get deflation, and rates fall further, you can refinance.

3. You'll save on taxes. You can deduct the mortgage interest from your income taxes. You can deduct your real estate taxes. And you'll get a tax break on capital gains–if any–when you sell. Sure, you'll need to do your math. You'll only get the income tax break if you itemize your deductions, and many people may be better off taking the standard deduction instead. The breaks are more valuable the more you earn, and the bigger your mortgage. But many people will find that these tax breaks mean owning costs them less, often a lot less, than renting.

4. It offers some inflation protection.No, it's not perfect. But studies by Professor Karl "Chip" Case (of Case-Shiller), and others, suggest that over the long-term housing has tended to beat inflation by a couple of percentage points a year. That's valuable inflation insurance, especially if you're young and raising a family and thinking about the next 30 or 40 years. In the recent past, inflation-protected government bonds, or TIPS, offered an easier form of inflation insurance. But yields there have plummeted of late. That also makes home-ownership look a little better by contrast.

5. It's forced savings. If you can rent an apartment for $2,000 month instead of buying one for $2,400 a month, renting may make sense. But will you save that $400 for your future? A lot of people won't. Most, I dare say. Once again, you have to do your math, but the part of your mortgage payment that goes to principal repayment isn't a cost. You're just paying yourself by building equity. As a forced monthly saving, it's a good discipline.

6. There is a lot to choose from. The number of homes that became available for sale in the last few years increased consistently on the Lake Tahoe real estate market, opening the door for great deals in this area.

7. It's risk capital. No, your home isn't the stock market and you shouldn't view it as the way to get rich. But if the economy does surprise us all and start booming, sooner or later real estate prices will head up again, and properties in the Lake Tahoe basin tend to gain a lot of equity. One lesson from the last few years is that stocks are incredibly hard for most normal people to own in large quantities–for practical as well as psychological reasons. Equity in a home is another way of linking part of your portfolio to the long-term growth of the economy–if it happens–and still managing to sleep at night.

8. You'll get a better home. If you already own a home or looking to buy your fist one, this could be a golden opportunity for an upgrade. If a few years ago trying to find a great deal was almost impossible on the Lake Tahoe real estate market from a financial stand point, now it's a great opportunity because the same money can buy a lot more on today's market.

9. Sooner or later, the market will clear. Demand and supply will meet. The population is forecast to grow by more than 100 million people over the next 40 years. That means maybe 40 million new households looking for homes. Meanwhile, this housing glut will work itself out around the country, but in Lake Tahoe that will happen at a faster pace than the rest of the country. 

10. It'll be yours. You can have the kitchen and bathrooms you want. You can move the walls, build an extension–zoning permitted–or paint everything bright orange. Few landlords are so indulgent; for renters, these types of changes are often impossible. You'll feel better about your own place if you own it than if you rent. Many years ago, when I was working for a political campaign in England, I toured a working-class northern town. Mrs. Thatcher had just begun selling off public housing to the tenants. "You can tell the ones that have been bought," said my local guide. "They've painted the front door. It's the first thing people do when they buy." It was a small sign that said something big.

Lake Tahoe Incline Village Real Estate News

by Lakeshore Realty

Existing-home sales slowed slightly during the month of May according to a recent report by the National Association of Realtors (NAR). Existing-home sales, which include recently purchased single family, townhomes, condominiums, and co-ops, fell by 3.8 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.81 million units nationally.

Existing Home Sales By Region

Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, believes that current economic factors are slowing growth. "Spiking gasoline prices along with widespread severe weather hurt house shopping in April, leading to soft figures for actual closings in May," he said. "Current housing market activity indicates a very slow pace of broader economic activity, but recent reversals in oil prices are likely to mitigate the impact going forward. The pace of sales activity in the second half of the year is expected to be stronger than the first half, and will be much stronger than the second half of last year."

Total housing inventory dropped 1 percent by the end of May to 3.72 million existing homes for sale. This represents a 9.3-month supply at today's current sales pace.
