West Shore Homes for Sale

One of my favorite areas of Lake Tahoe is the west shore. There are many exquisite lakefront properties and charming homes tucked into the hillsides of Tahoe Park, Talmont and Alpine Peaks. While Coronavirus may have slowed down economic activity in other places, real estate activity at Lake Tahoe is bursting with home sales.

Our buyers primarily come from the feeder markets of the Bay Area. Many companies are now opting to have workers work remotely permanently. This means that our buyers can afford to enjoy a retreat in the mountains of Tahoe, while commuting one day a week to the Bay. This is really driving our market and inventory is at an all time low. Whether you are thinking of buying or selling a property at Lake Tahoe, you couldn't find a better market.

Under Contract - Fountain Ave

I was excited to put my Tahoe Park property into escrow recently, and I have many buyers looking for the perfect west shore getaway. Below, I have pulled a few of my favorite west shore listings that are currently available.

The properties range from magnificent lakefronts, to outstanding lakeviews in the hills above Tahoe City. I have chosen a few from Talmont and Alpine Peaks, two wonderful areas with filtered lake views. Alpine Peaks is great because you can get your Squaw/Alpine pass and virtually ski to the Sherwood lift to begin a day of skiing. You can be back at the remote office in your home by 11am and still get fresh powder!
