A lot of folks ask me when is the best time to buy or sell a home in Truckee or N Lake Tahoe. New homes are always coming on the market, but the late spring and summer months always see the biggest peak in inventory. So, if you’re a buyer, there’s more to choose from in the 2nd and 3rd quarter. But demand is also generally high. The fact that there’s more inventory is obvious to everyone at that point, and there can be real pent-up demand from buyers creating competition. If you’re a seller, it’s similar. You’ll be competing with many more sellers for those same buyers, so it can be harder to get your asking price and/or multiple offers in the “high season”.
