Truckee-Tahoe’s luxury communities are largely home to 2nd homeowners who travel to the area for the beautiful Summer days spent by the water and the picturesque Winter days spent on the slopes. And because of the consistent year-round visitation to the area, homeownership is actually more attainable than you would think.

Typically, the second question I get after “how much is this home?” is, “can I rent it out?”

The 3 main considerations you must know in order to understand, plan and prepare for leveraging your Truckee property for rental income in luxury communities, like Martis Camp, Schaffer’s Mill, Lahontan, Gray’s Crossing, Old Greenwood, Mountainside and Northstar, are as follows:
