No surprise to locals, but Truckee has been ranked as the 4th safest city in all of California.

The Town with a 19th Century history of bar brawls and gun fighting was beat only by the tony Bay Area community of Hillsborough, Palos Verdes, and Imperial (where you might find more cows than people).

Lahontan Home Sales up 41% over 2017

With interest rates up, and today’s stock market feeling like a roller coaster ride, the economy ended 2018 on wobbly knees. But that does not seem to have dampened enthusiasm for the Tahoe/Truckee real estate market, which closed out the year with a record $1.3 billion in sales.

Fewer homes sold than in 2017, but higher prices pushed the region’s overall volume up to a record high that’s almost three times the dollar volume that sold a decade ago, when the slide into the recession had just begun. Tahoe/Truckee single-family home sales were up last year almost $174 million over 2017.

New construction has certainly contributed to the gain. We have more homes now than we did a decade ago — that’s a fact.
