Best End of Year Real Estate Deals In Mammoth Lakes!

Merry Christmas & Happy Hanukkah From Lauren Tracy at Properties Of Mammoth!

High Spirits abound in Mammoth this year as Old Man Winter is stirring!  Mammoth Lakes is preparing for a very white Christmas this year.   Conditions couldn’t be better at Mammoth Mountain right now with yesterday’s storm bringing over a foot of fresh snow and making a solid base for opening Canyon Lodge this Wednesday, tomorrow! Here are some shots I took this morning before work around Mammoth:

Current Mammoth Real Estate Trends:

Stay Away From Short Sales, they are taking over 6 months and are not reliable anymore for acquiring property in the area.

Online Auctions are New to Mammoth Lakes and gaining in popularity. We have just completed the first 2 ever before in the area.

According to our local REO broker, Paul Oster, Broker at ReMax, there is a new wave of BPO’s (Broker Price Opinion) they are getting (these are orders for valuations of distressed properties by a lender), meaning we can expect more distressed properties on the market next year.

Recent Sales are showing a bigger gap between list price and sales price.

Much Lower total volume of sales this year.

 My Next Newsletter will include: Year End Wrap Up with all Market Data and Stats!  Not to be missed!

If you are going to be in the area, please stop by my office at Mammoth Properties, between the Post Office and Stellar Brew at 3310 Main Street.  I would love to meet you and show you any of these great offerings or anything else that you are interested in.

Happy Holidays!!
