Despite both sides sharing many aspects, you definitely will notice some differences while searching for a perfect property for sale in the Lake Tahoe region.
Homes for sale in South Lake Tahoe, California
First of all, we need to say that the south shore is divided into small California cities such as South Lake Tahoe (at the foot of the Mt Tallac within fascinating El Dorado County), Meyers, Emerald Bay, Zephyr Cove, and the Kirkwood, Markleeville, and Nebelhorn areas.
Within the Californian Lake Tahoe boundaries (CA 96150) lies a lively area filled with multiple casinos, restaurants, luxury resorts, and private neighborhoods. The entire south shore is an extremely prestigious region that meets all the requirements of a modern lifestyle. We especially recommend the picturesque areas of the West Shore and the Tahoe Keys Vacation Resort Rentals. They provide first-class amenities with fantastic views of the mountains and the lake. Our other small tip is to take a relaxing ride along Lake Tahoe Blvd for captivating views both over the lake and the Upper Truckee River.
In addition to advantages such as great activities and high-end amenities, the actual real estate market is the most important factor when considering buying a home in the south shore of Lake Tahoe.
Here you will certainly find a house to your taste. Homes range from small and affordable Tahoe lakefront manufactured homes to entire luxury waterfront estates. And if you are dreaming about a gorgeous property surrounded by evergreen forest, overlooking crystal blue water, we highly recommend Montgomery Estates and Country Club Estates--two ultra-sought-after neighborhoods.
On JamesEdition, the average price of houses for sale south of Lake Tahoe is around US$1.7M. But cheaper houses as well as much more luxurious properties also are available for purchase.
Homes for Sale in North Lake Tahoe, Nevada
If you desire a more secluded life in a quiet neighborhood in the lap of nature with the same magnificent views--and sometimes better--we would suggest the northern part of Lake Tahoe.
The north shore also is divided into various cities: Crystal Bay, Tahoe City, Incline Village, Tahoe Vista, Kings Beach, Glenbrook, Carnelian Bay, Stateline, Sunnyside, the Tahoe Truckee, and Donner Lake.
The north side is renowned for its winter activities and rich variety of fantastic ski areas like Squaw Valley. Even without skis and snowboards, however, you won't be bored here. You can enjoy Truckee River rafting, biking, or even simply lying on the beach. The north shore also is a perfect area for golf enthusiasts; you will find several stunning golf courses such as the Championship Golf Course at Incline Village.
If you are searching for the perfect home for sale in North Lake Tahoe, we highly recommend the Crystal Bay area, where you incidentally will find the gorgeous, former estate of Howard Hughes. Or within a 2177-acre private, luxury community Martis Camp.
The rental market on the north shore tends to be more affordable than that of the south shore; the price range of properties for sale in North Lake Tahoe is wider. The average price on JamesEdition is US$4.6M.
