House Hunting While on Vacation

House Hunting While on Vacation at Lake Tahoe

House hunting isn’t an obvious priority for many North Lake Tahoe vacationers. But if you love the North Lake Tahoe area and have dreamed of owning a home here, this might be the best time for you to buy. Here's a cheatsheet of helpful tips for house hunting while on vacation.

  1. Do Your Research: Do you want to live in a luxury home overlooking Lake Tahoe or would you rather have a condo near the slopes? When do you plan to buy? How much can you afford? What areas interest you the most?
  2. Find an Agent: Contact a reliable, experienced North Lake Tahoe real estate agent. Discuss in advance what you’re looking for, where you’ll be looking and your timeline. A good agent is invaluable and you want to start building a relationship with them prior to visiting the area.
  3. Secure a Lender: Please do not wait until you have found the perfect home to check out lending options. Securing a loan pre-approval or pre-qualification prior to looking at homes shows the seller you are serious and prepared to make the purchase.
  4. Relax: You’re on vacation, remember? Working with a skilled real estate agent will help mitigate the stress of the home buying process. Enjoy yourself and remember that you will soon be calling the North Lake Tahoe area home.
