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 recent sales continuing to stay strong, real estate experts believe, just as I do, that with the current price points of homes this is still a good time to purchase a home in Lake Tahoe. Even sales of homes in the luxury market are going 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 July 31, 2014, there were 677 closed sales of homes in South Lake Tahoe, CA, which is down 13% from the previous year. The median price of sold homes during the last year was $335,000, up 19.6% from the previous year. Sales in the Lake Tahoe real estate market have improved in all price categories except for those homes that sold for under $300,000. With so few homes for sale in that price range I expect to see a continuation of the same pattern for some time.
These are the current trends that that I’m seeing in the Lake Tahoe real estate market:
- Expect interest rates to climb slightly
- Appreciation rate continuing to grow
- Strong luxury homes sales
- More homes for sale which gives buyers more choices

Work will continue through the winter, with completion, including landscaping, coming late next summer. About a half dozen...Continue Reading!
An estimated three millions visitors gaze upon beautiful Lake Tahoe each year but very few are able to call Lake Tahoe home, and even fewer are able to live in a lakeview home like this one. Imagine gazing out upon the lake from this gorgeous Glenbrook home for sale! You'll feel like you're hanging over the top of the lake. This is one of most panoramic lakeview homes I've ever been in, even better than most lake front homes. You look...Continue Reading!
The Elk Point neighborhood is a gated lakefront community on the south-east shores of Lake Tahoe on the Nevada side.

The answer is NO. While the market has been hot and there is a lot of action with active home buyers, the time is still good for the "regular Joe" to buy a home in Lake Tahoe. Prices have been rising continuously since August of 2012 but home values are still nowhere close to what they were at the beginning of 2007 which was the height of home prices locally. There are many cities in Northern California that have already...Continue Reading!
