Re-Register to Vote?

For those owners who have been inquiring how to make an impact in this year’s elections,  here is a link for California Online Voter Registration:   Online Voter Registration | California Secretary of State

All property owners (taxpayers) in Mammoth Lakes are an important part of the Mammoth Lakes community.  Many, not registered to vote locally, often feel that their voices are not heard by local elected officials.  For those that meet the criteria to vote in Mammoth Lakes and who would feel their voices may have a better impact in local elections, here is link to re-register.   As a point of fact, some current elected officials that many of you have expressed frustration with won the last election with a small handful of votes.   A few possible ballot items that could impact property taxes are:

  • School Bond 
  • Possible Fire Department Bond
  • 2% Increase to TOT tax

Median Home Sales Prices by Month for 2023 and 2024

As can be seen from the graph below, the median price of single-family homes varies month to month.  This is largely due to the limited number of sales in any given month, but this information is helpful in seeing how the market behaves in any given month of the year.

Median Home Prices

Below is a summary of available (active) home listings at the beginning of each respective month:

Active Home Listings

As seen in the graph above, the number of active home listings (inventory) increased throughout most of 2023 with stabilization and even slight declines being observed in Year-To-Date 2024.  This exhibits ongoing demand for housing without an increase in housing supply. 

Prices per foot help us to understand the markets from a different perspective.  Below is a table and graph showing single family home sales on a price per square foot basis.  2024 information is based on 16 sales, Year-To-Date.

Condo Median

The median sale price for condominiums, by month, allows us to observe buyer and seller attitudes throughout the year.  The median price of a condominium peaked in the month of October 2023, attributed largely to several new higher-end condominium sales in the Creekhouse project.  October 2023 is also the date the moratorium for TOT rentals went into effect but was retracted in March 2024. 

Condo Median Sales Per Month

This year, the total number of active listings peaked in December 2023, with 66 active listings.  As of April 1, 2024, there were 56 active condominium listings showing a slight decline on the year, but an increase over March 1’s figure.  This is still an increase of 27 listing vs. April of last year.
