You have been looking for the perfect luxury home in an exquisite natural environment and have finally settled on the stunningly picturesque Lake Tahoe, but what comes next? These are the top insider secrets for purchasing homes for sale in Truckee, California bordering Lake Tahoe.

Study the Landscape and Amenities

If you have chosen to purchase a home in Truckee, California then you already know that your home will be on the north side of Lake Tahoe. However, you might not realize that each area on the north side of Lake Tahoe has its own unique places and may be closer or farther away from the most popular amenities. Before you begin looking at homes, study the landscape and amenities to choose the area of Truckee that you want to live in. There are several distinct villages alongside the north area of Lake Tahoe including Alpine Meadows, Carnelian Bay, Crystal Bay, Donner Summit, Incline Village, Kings Beach, Northstar, Squaw Valley, Tahoe City, Tahoe Vista, and of course the main center Truckee village.

Start Online

The next step in your home buying process should be to start searching online to determine what type of homes are available in Truckee, CA and what homes fall within your budget. You will also want to see what type of homes you are drawn to in terms of architecture. If you know you love something with a rustic cabin feel, then you already know where to begin when you start talking to your realtor. How many decks do you want? Is a garden important? Do you want a single story home or a condo? How close to the water do you want to be and which water point entry? Having a concrete idea of what you want by planning ahead will help you find the best home for you.

Hire a Professional Realtor

Once you have an idea of what you want, it's time to meet with a professional realtor and give them your plans. Choose a realtor that is experienced with the area and who may be able to help you make important decisions between houses based on amenities, overall land value, and architectural appeal. This is especially critical if you live out of state and want to purchase a home in Truckee as a vacation home because your realtor can help connect you to legitimate and professional mortgage brokers, home inspectors, local handyman, and home appraisers.

Make Multiple Offers

If you want to find a home at a great price then it's worth making multiple offers throughout the course of your home buying journey. Start with a lower offer that leaves room for negotiation and if one seller won't accept a lower offer, try another. In a vacation area, playing the neighborhood can work in your benefit. Of course, cash offers are another way to increase the value of your offer. If you can place a large percentage of your lower offer in cash, your chances of being taken up on the offer will increase dramatically.

By following these insider secrets, you can work with your real estate agent to close on the home or vacation home of your dreams in Truckee, CA.
