Residential Real Estate Market – Mammoth Lakes
The single family residential real estate market plays an important role in multi-family market for a variety of reasons:
- As single-family housing and condominium prices increase in Mammoth Lakes, market rents tend to follow suit as new owners find the need to cover expenses.
- The COVID-19 Pandemic has increased the demand for housing in semi-rural communities like Mammoth Lakes
- Second homeowners are finding nightly rentals to be a convenient method of using their new home/condo when its not being rented on a nightly basis
- With the evolution of Airbnb, VRBO and other nightly rental services, owners are finding transient rentals to be more profitable than long term rentals, as a result the supply of long-term housing is diminishing, and rates have been increasing.
Single Family Homes (Shown above)
The Mammoth Lakes single family home market has been experiencing strong increases since 2011, with the most notable increases in 2021. The most recent increase is attributed to low interest rates and increasing demand for semi-rural living (quality of life). For more detailed information, please visit our Mammoth Lakes Market Report as of March 2021.
The condominium market is the largest residential market for Mammoth Lakes. Prices for condominiums have been increasing over the same period as the single-family home market, however increases have been more gradual. Because most condominium projects encourage nightly rentals, the nightly rental market for these property types has been the primary contributor to the increase demand for multi-family housing.
