7 Factors Affecting Tahoe Lakefront Real Estate Value
1) Lot Size, Topography, and Proximity to Highway
Whether a Tahoe lakefront home for sale 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. 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 by $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. Lakefront homes with shared piers are also desirable but add less value than a private pier. Tahoe lakefront real estate that does not have a pier is less desirable as it’s difficult to obtain permits for a private pier due to Tahoe Regional Planning Agency regulations. If you think you want/need a pier, its best to purchase a home with an existing pier as obtaining permits from TRPA and CA Lands to build a pier can take years and the cost of construction is very high.
3) Tahoe Lake Frontage
A property’s value will take into consideration the amount of lake frontage a home has. 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 and increased views of Lake Tahoe. These top tier lakefronts will typically sell more quickly than lakefronts with inferior lake frontage.
4) Estate Quality Tahoe Lakefront Properties
Lake Tahoe Estate quality lakefronts are very desirable for the added privacy they provide and for the quiet setting that they offer. In addition, these lakefronts offer a 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 set off the highway on secondary streets. This provides 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. These areas are Dollar Point, Tahoe Sierra Estates, Tahoe Park, Sunnyside, Meeks Bay, and the Ring Roads. There are a few other highly desirable side streets as well, which are in high demand. 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 close proximity to the highway, and often have lower water depths. These lakefronts are a great way to get into the Lake Tahoe lakefront real estate market. These Tahoe properties offer a lakefront location, great views, and access to lake activities/sports. Easy winter access at a more affordable price makes these homes very attractive to Tahoe buyers. Although considered entry-level, these homes have pricing that starts around $2M.
7) Neighborhood Amenities
Some Tahoe lakefront homes are located in neighborhoods that have Homeowner Association amenities such as sandy beaches, piers, pools and/or buoys. Tahoe Park offers a private park with +/- 800 feet of lake frontage. Plus, they have 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 positively affect pricing.
