Rob Wonhof, Brooke Sullivan, and Monica Gore of the Montrêux Team hope that everyone had a great holiday season and a Happy New Year!

As we begin the New Year, we are excited to report the real estate market in Montrêux continues to strengthen. Many Californians have come to Nevada to seek tax refuge and are driving the market forward and creating higher demand for property ownership in our wonderful community.

Home sales are up 80% and custom lot sales are up 300% in 2013 vs 2012.  Taking all home sales into account, home prices have risen an average of 12% since 2012. On a special note, higher end custom home prices jumped an average of 20% to 30% over the prior year. Custom lot sale prices have risen 100% since 2012. Needless to say, 2013 has been a fantastic year!

The final enclave at Montrêux, Parc Forêt, has nearly sold out its first phase that was released in the late spring. The next release will be available in early 2014 and the addition of new plans has already created a buzz of anticipation. Our new homeowners are a fabulous addition to Montrêux’s already wonderful community…Welcome!

In 2013, Parc Forêt has been the recipient of a significant amount of recognition and awards on both national and regional levels for exceptional craftsmanship and thoughtful lifestyle design. The Builder Association of Northern Nevada (BANN) awarded Parc Forêt first in six categories, from architecture to interior design to marketing. The National Sales and Marketing Awards will announce the gold this February, with Parc Forêt in contention for several categories from landscape to architecture.

Northern Nevada’s most wonderful community is shining brighter than ever and our team is looking forward to making 2014 our best year yet. Due to the timing of the holidays, the move in date to our new office has been pushed to the end of January. We hope that you had a phenomenal end to 2013 and we encourage you to come by the Welcome Center any time!
