South Lake Tahoe Monthly Market Update, December 2022
The nation’s overall housing supply remains limited, as those who purchased homes in recent years at extremely low mortgage rates are staying put. This tight inventory has kept prices from seeing deeper declines, making homes still unaffordable for many, especially first-time homebuyers.
Even though home prices remain high year-over-year, they’re not as eye-popping as they were earlier this year. How far home prices dip in 2023 will likely depend on where mortgage rates go.
In South Lake Tahoe the median sales price is up 7% compared to the same month last year. The amount of homes sold in December is down 46% compared to a year ago. The number of homes on the market continues to be very low, hopefully we'll start seeing more listings coming up on the market in the Spring.
