7 Factors Affecting Lake Tahoe Lakefront Real Estate Value
1) Lot Size, Topography, and Proximity to Highway
Whether a Tahoe lakefront home is situated on a small lot within close proximity to the highway, a smaller narrow lot that is deeper and set away from the highway, or on a large acreage sized parcel can have a significant effect on lakefront pricing. The Tahoe lakefront market is willing to pay a premium for estate quality lakefront homes while waterfront properties that are affected by highway noise are often more affordable. The topography of the lot will also affect value as larger level lots are more desirable than smaller steep, down-sloping parcels.
2) Lake Tahoe Piers
A private pier will increase the value of a Tahoe lakefront property $500,000 to $2,000,000+. A $2M pier will offer boat lifts, covered storage/boathouse, and possibly a rock cribbing providing a sheltered mooring for your boat. Tahoe lakefront real estate that does not have a pier is less desirable as it’s very difficult to obtain permits for a private pier due to Tahoe Regional Planning Agency regulations.
3) Tahoe Lake Frontage
A property’s value will take into consideration the amount of lake frontage a home has and Tahoe lakefronts with more frontage have greater access to the lake and become more valuable. Tahoe lakefronts with over 100 feet of frontage are the most desirable and demand a premium. These homes offer a more private setting, increased views of Lake Tahoe, and often sell more quickly than Tahoe Lakefronts with less frontage.
4) Estate Quality Tahoe Lakefront Properties
Lake Tahoe Estate quality lakefronts are very desirable for the added privacy they provide, quiet setting away from the highway, and for the higher level of coverage that allows for the construction of larger homes, garages and secondary living structures. Lakefront buyers will pay a premium for tear downs which allow for custom mountain home construction. Tahoe lakefront estates often have deep water piers, a higher amount of lake frontage and are considered to be the most sought after in Lake Tahoe real estate.
5) Off-Highway Tahoe Lakefront Properties
These Tahoe lakefront properties are often set back from the highway providing a more peaceful setting, although they are not typically acreage properties. Off-highway Tahoe lakefront homes can be found on the North and West Shores of Lake Tahoe in areas such as Dollar Point, Tahoe Sierra Estates, Tahoe Park, Sunnyside, Meeks Bay, the Ring Roads, and a few other highly desirable side streets. These lakefront properties are very desirable for their reduced road noise, superior privacy, views, and amenities.
6) Entry-Level Tahoe Lakefront Properties
The entry-level Tahoe lakefront home is typically located on a smaller lot, located within very close proximity to the highway, and have shallow water depths. These lakefronts are a great way to get into the Lake Tahoe lakefront real estate market, and these homes offer a lakefront location, great views, access to lake activities/sports, as well as easy winter access at a more affordable price. Although considered entry level, these homes have pricing which starts around $1.5M.
7) Neighborhood Amenities
Some Tahoe lakefront homes are located in neighborhoods that have Homeowner Association amenities such as sandy beaches, piers, and/or buoys. Tahoe Park offers a private park with +/- 800 feet of lake frontage, 2 piers, shared buoys, BBQ areas with picnic tables, horseshoe pits, and volleyball. The very desirable Dollar Point neighborhood offers a private beach, pier, buoys, tennis courts, and pool. Neighborhoods with additional shared amenities are desirable and affect pricing positively.
