[Correction: Originally, we incorrectly estimated the increase in value here as around 99.99 percent; in reality, it’s accurate to say the value increased 99.99 TIMES, and 9,987 (or so) percent. We regret the error, as well as the shamefaced email we’re karmically obligated to send to our fourth grade math teacher.] It’s been a while … Continue reading Tahoe Property Price Up 9,987 Percent
One of our favorite sub-genres of home listings is incredibly ambitious and expensive luxury properties that have not yet actually been built but still seek millions of dollars. You can find lots of these phantasmal gems in San Francisco, but we have to admit, this latest Tahoe listing in the town of Olympic Valley might … Continue reading Tahoe Property With “Underground Lair” Plans Seeks $12.5M
When you’re cruising Tahoe real estate listings–as many of us do when the stars are right and we feel that peculiar urge–there are always a few oddballs in the lot where it’s not necessarily clear what’s on sale. Just this week a listing appeared for 12595 Legacy Court in Truckee, a two bed, two bath … Continue reading Buy a Chunk of This Truckee House For $5,000
If you’re looking for decisive vindication of the idea that Lake Tahoe is an entirely different world from San Francisco in housing terms, consider that a two bed, two bath house in Truckee (on the north side of the lake) can be had for the SF-frugal price of $675,000. Now of course this is not … Continue reading “Modified A-Frame” North of Lake Tahoe Asks $675K

Put this on my list of things I would love to do, and never will. Makes all of us “hard core” (I use that term very loosely) Tahoe skiers look like a bunch of pansies, doesn’t it.
Being a real estate writer has depressingly few perks. I don’t get free tickets to concerts or desert on the house at Michael Mina. The product I write about, you see, can’t really fit in a gift bag. Mostly, I get accused of being a Realtor (I’m not) or of being “in bed” with the … Continue reading Northstar Ski Resort, Lake Tahoe Courting the High End Market in a Ski in/Ski out Paradise
[R.I.P. Jamie Pierre] We’re falling into ski season, and you all know I love me some powder. Many of you also know I grew up in Reno Nevada, with Lake Tahoe as my backyard.

Not only is this house right next … Continue reading Walking Distance to a “Wet Woody”
I never really heard the term “Lakefront” until I moved to Lake Tahoe. Now, as a realtor in Tahoe, I hear it all the time – mostly in relation to the ultimate in luxury living on the most desirable lake in the country. Affordable? Not usually. Lakefronts are generally reserved for the very rich or … Continue reading Living Large for Small Change on Tahoe
Remeber this $100,000,000 home in Zephyr Cove I featured not too long ago? Well…it’s now $25,000,000 more affordable, and we know who owns it…Tommy Hilfiger Co-Founder Joel Horowitz. Opulent is an understatement. For $25MM less, I still wonder if I’d be able to wear my ski boots in the main room. –525 Highway 50, Zephyr … Continue reading $100,000,000 Tahoe Cabin Just Slashed $25,000,000. Hurry! Won’t Last!
