This is not an instant home value, or the popular $-estimate that other sites offer. Why?

We know that each Tahoe Donner property is unique and that they were built as a custom home, cabin, or condo. It’s important that your mountain property gets all of the credit and value it deserves for all of those special features before we place a value on it.

Tahoe Seller Tip – Provide as much information and property details as you can on your property. The more information, the better!
Each on-line viewing is your first showing! Every time your home is viewed on-line, that Tahoe buyer is making that critical first impression decision on whether or not to have your Tahoe Donner home on their short list of properties to see when they come to North Lake Tahoe.
Unlike other markets, this second home market often only has a buyer here for just a few hours to see properties and you’re on the list or you’re not!
Your on-line presence will impact a buyers “must-see” showing list, which means you need a great internet profile and presentation of your property.
To achieve the broadest world-wide Internet marketing exposure and presence, your Tahoe Donner property you’ll need a combination of a fully completed TSMLS property profile, social media campaign, blogging, and video exposure.
Even in this highly sought after gated golf course community, Tahoe Donner sellers still are competing to get the attention of a limited number of buyers, who are considering not only Tahoe Donner, but near-by golf course communities too, so if you want a timely sale, you’ll need to have a full marketing plan and program.
You are selecting a luxury real estate marketing specialist to get you results. Your Tahoe Donner real estate professional will be there to guide you through the entire real estate property selling process, which includes marketing and presenting your property to the public and local REALTORS, along with negotiating your sales contract terms and conditions, and all of the issues that will come up in during the escrow process – who you select really does matters!
Experienced real estate agents that understand a strong on-line marketing plan when combined with other key traditional home marketing strategies can really make a difference for their sellers.
