The North Lake Tahoe, CA Real Estate Market Sets a Number of New Records in 2017!
2017 was a record-breaking year for North Lake Tahoe, CA and Truckee real estate sales with 1,160 single family homes trading hands for a combined value of $1.17B! The Tahoe-Sierra MLS has only had 2 years of single-family home sales over $1B, so this is a significant record. Although we had a tenacious finish to the year, 2017 had an abysmal start as severe weather, deep snowpack and treacherous road conditions kept buyers at bay. Plus, inventory levels were historically low throughout most of the year. Once the Tahoe area melted out (July) the real estate markets came alive with vigor and we saw homes selling at a feverish pace. September through December saw $529M in single-family home sales accounting for 45% of total dollar volume and 49% of unit volume, which was record setting!
