There’s no holds barred with home design in 2015, rustic and modern are now playmates. Today show has presented the Pinterest Top 100, and names the mix of modern and mountain as one of the top home trends in 2015. Of course, if you visit North Lake Tahoe you know we all agree - this trend is here to stay.
Get ready to see weathered wood paired with modern elements in your architectural digest issues. If your home design leans towards modern luxury, but you would like to incorporate a few rustic details, look towards rough wood, organic shapes, earth tones, and distressed metals to achieve the look. Exemplified by a dining table, imagine a knotty slab of black walnut with butterfly joints paired with industrial legs.
At Tahoe Mountain Realty we love the idea of incorporating color, pattern and a metropolitan touch to ski home decor - especially for our friends from the Bay who have second homes in the region. Be bold in your home designs this year, because when you fuse mountain and metal something truly beautiful happens.

May, 2015 marked another month of continued improvement for Tahoe Truckee real estate. The 140 sales achieved is the second highest number of transactions for any month year-to-date, and the $96,927,494 total sales volume represents a 10% increase over the prior month but 21% decrease over May 2014. With the average selling price coming in at $692,339 (2.5% improvement over same period in 2014).
New inventory was introduced in May, as many sellers rush to come on the market by Memorial Day Weekend as an introduction to the summer consumer rush. This is often about 30 days premature however as our buyers normally don't return with significant force until school is out, graduations are complete and the 4th of July is looming. This year, inventory jumped from a balanced 6 months' supply to nearly 9 months' inventory. I'm confident the equilibrium between buyers and sellers will balance out resulting in market stability this summer. However, over priced properties seeking to stretch boundaries might face some challenges as months supply inventory increases.
