If you’re searching the real estate market for Bank Foreclosures or Short Sales in the Truckee Tahoe Region, don’t let a good one pass you by.  Whether you are looking in Tahoe Donner, Glenshire, or even Grays Crossing, to the North and West Shores of Lake Tahoe, we are seeing a drop in inventory of distressed property.  This includes Single family Homes and Condos.

There has been about a 10% drop in total Active and Active-Contingent inventory from last month, which is no surprise at this time of year.  However, the significant change is that there were approximately twice as many Real Estate Owned (REO) and Short Sale listings compared with one year ago.  See below for a quick rundown.

  • 569 total Active/Active-Contingent listings
    (Down 16% from a total of 677 last month)
  • 73 REO/Short Sales = 13%
    (Down 13% from a total of 84 a month ago)
