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 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 June 30, 2014, there were 703 closed sales of homes in South Lake Tahoe, CA.  The median price of sold homes during the last year was $325,000, up 18.2% from the previous year.  Sales have been up in all price categories except for those homes that sold for under $300,000.  There just aren’t that many homes for sale in that price range so we’ll continue to see a reduction in sales in that range.

In June we saw a 7.6% increase in the number of homes listed for sale in South Lake Tahoe as well as an increase of almost 10% in the number of homes for sale.

These are the current trends that we’re experiencing 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

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.
