Neighborhoods of South Lake Tahoe

Since many Lake Tahoe home buyers come from out of the area they aren’t familiar with our neighborhoods and their attributes. Due to this, two features have been included to help the buyer’s experience.  First is a Lake Tahoe Buyer’s Guide and, secondly, video tours and reviews of all South Lake Tahoe neighborhoods.  You can find them on the neighborhood video page or on the neighborhood page.

Each South Lake Tahoe neighborhood is unique. You will notice everything from lakefront and luxury homes like those in Tahoe Keys, Glenbrook, Skyland, Cave Rock and Elk Point, as well as homes with more of a mountain, woodsy feel as those in Montgomery Estates, Pioneer Trail and Tahoe Paradise. Nevada neighborhoods tend to have more luxury and lake view homes while California neighborhoods tend to include everything from luxury lakefront to mountain cabins.

Lake Tahoe Real Estate Market

The Lake Tahoe real estate market continues to be very busy, with increasing sales and a decreasing inventory of homes for sale. With recent sales continuing to stay strong, many experts believe just as I do, that now is the time to purchase a home in Lake Tahoe. Even sales of homes in the luxury market are remaining strong, as in the Glenbrook, Lakefront, Skyland, Zephyr Heights and  Tahoe Keys neighborhoods. The neighborhoods on the CA. side of the lake have some pricing that is still very attractive and below our market peak in 2006.

Over the last 12 months, ending February 28, 2014, there were 738 closed sales of homes in South Lake Tahoe, CA.  The median price of sold homes during the last year was $320,000, up 28% from the previous year.  We had been seeing a consistent upwards growth in most figures over the last 17 months, but this month saw a few areas with a slight drop. Overall, closed sales were down 3.7%, but there was actually only one category that had a drop ~ those priced under $300,000. All other price categories had increased sales, including the Lake Tahoe luxury home market where sales were up 31.6%.

My predictions for 2014 in the Lake Tahoe real estate market:

  • Interest rates will slowly continue to creep up
  • Appreciation rate will taper from last years boom
  • Luxury homes sales will be strong
  • Available Homes for sale will continue to decrease

Look at all the homes for sale in Lake Tahoe, and if you see something you like and aren’t in the area to view it, I offer a special service. You will receive a narrated video tour of the home…it will be like you’re there and seeing it for the first time!  If you want more information on any home or subject on my website please contact Dan Spano. Read my most recent reviews. I welcome all my customers to drop by my office conveniently  located in the Lake Tahoe casino core on the CA. side of the state line.
