Lake Tahoe Real Estate in the Meyers Neighborhood

The town of Meyers started out as a stagecoach stop, Pony Express station and a trading post in the mid-1800’s.  Now it is home to shopping, services, restaurants,  2 golf courses, cabins and to newer contemporary homes. This is a good neighborhood for a starter or second/vacation home.  Due to it’s proximity to all 3 area ski resorts; Kirkwood, Sierra at Tahoe and Heavenly, this area is popular to many skiers, especially those  die hard Kirkwood skiers.  The Truckee River runs through part of the community called Christmas Valley and there is very cool area called Lake Baron, a park and elementary school and some really neat mountain biking trails. The area is generally flat with close up views of the mountains and forest.

In August, 2013, the median sales price of homes in this area for the last 12 months rose 40.7% from the previous year to $270.000. The number of closed sales rose 40% to 14.

Currently there are 5 homes for sale in Meyers ranging from $199,500 for a 2 bedroom cabin to $650,000 for a newer, 4 bedroom home.
