Great Fixer Uppers Lake Tahoe

Are you interested in great fixer upper opportunities at Lake Tahoe?

Whether you are an investor or entry level buyer, these homes have great upside potential. Investors can renovate and flip the property back onto the market. Buyers with limited funds can invest elbow grease to make an amazing mountain home. Either way, these are my favorite entry level fixer uppers on the market right now:


Lakeview Rubicon with HOA

This home in Rubicon Bay has incredible views of the green and blue waters of Lake Tahoe. While the home is currently down to the studs, you can easily build it into your dream home. If you are a contractor looking for a good investment, this property is truly special. It is located at the end of a road, offering amazing privacy but with breathtaking views of the lake. It is also within the Rubicon Tahoe Owner’s Association. The property has access to beautiful white sand beaches, 2 piers and a buoy field. This is one of my favorite fixer uppers, located at the northern end of the West shore of Lake Tahoe. Listed at $500K.


Prestigious Carnelian Bay

Located in prestigious Carnelian Bay, this 3 bedroom/2 bath home also has an attached studio with 1 bath. It is livable, but is ready for an extensive remodel. The living room has high ceilings and a fireplace. The ground floor has one bedroom and bath with a kitchen and laundry area. Upstairs are 2 other bedrooms with an additional bath. The studio has a separate entrance and is ideal as a rental, while you enjoy the main house. It also has an enclosed carport/garage. The best thing about this fixer upper is its central location to Tahoe City, Kings Beach and all of the local ski areas. Carnelian Bay is a much sought after community and this property provides a great opportunity for a remodel and resale. Listed at $499K.
