Summer Lakefront Market Report | Lake Tahoe

lake tahoe

As we move into mid-summer, it is exciting to see so many lakefront properties come onto the market in Lake Tahoe. New listings range in prices of $35 million for a 6 bedroom, 5 bath estate in Meeks Bay to a $7.5 million listing in the much sought-after Brockway Hot Springs.

From Incline Village, through Tahoe Vista, Carnelian Bay and up into Meeks Bay, there are beautiful lakefront homes for every price point. New lakefront listings on the West Shore currently range in prices between $34.5 million to $14 million.

Lakefront Market Report

When looking at lakefront sales over the first half of the year, we are seeing homes sell at 103% of asking price. This was a factor of a limited amount of inventory, which created a highly competitive market. However, unit sales in the first half of 2023 were lower than the same period last year.

Since many lakefront buyers use cash from stock market earnings, they can be unaffected by rising interest rates. It will be interesting to see how the influx of new lakefront listings affect overall pricing and sales volume as we move through the summer.

From January to June 2023, lakefront sales decreased 40% year over year. The median price also decreased 12%, but this may be a factor of the shared ownership sales of lakefronts that are priced much lower. There are also a few lakefront condos available for sale.
