Lake Tahoe home prices continue to rise, per Chase International
July 15, 2015
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — The Lake Tahoe real estate market continued to see an uptick in median home prices after the second quarter of 2015, up 14 percent to $525,000.
Overall sales around the lake dipped slightly from this time last year, with Incline Village seeing decreases across the board and Tahoe City seeing healthy improvements.
The figures are part of a report released by Lake Tahoe-based real estate company Chase International, and compare the prices and closings from January 1 through June 30, 2015 to the same time period from 2014.
Most changes were minor — a 4 percent and one percent decrease in lake-wide sales volume and units sold, and a one percent and ten percent drop in units sold under and over the $1 million mark (respectively).
"There is only one Lake Tahoe," said Sue Lowe, senior vice president of Chase. "And people want to experience the amazing lifestyle and buy here. Our continued lack of inventory keeps our prices moving up."
The median price of a home rose 14 percent on the East Shore ($767,500) and the South Shore ($386,000), and 7 percent in Tahoe City ($560,000).
