Lakeshore Realty Achieves Highest Luxury Sale in Over a Decade Span

Locals say there is something in the water and we tend to agree! Incline Village has seen a surge of high-end property sales capped by the record breaking sale of “Old Forge Estate” at over $31 million dollars. In the first six months of 2017, Lakeshore Realty has sold $36,000,000 more than the same period last year. There have been more sales over $10M in the last 5 years than the previous 10 years combined. Typically, homes over $10M in Incline village stay on the market for an average of 468, days but “Old Forge Estate” closed escrow in only 66 days! This emerging market for high-end real estate has encouraged more owners to put their homes on the market, including the Crystal Pointe Estate currently listed for $75M. With the economy doing well in 2017, we expect this trend to continue for the foreseeable future!



Residential home sales in Incline Village, Nevada are down 13% compared to last year at this time. However, the trend in growing sales prices remains steady with a 15% increase to the median price of $1,137,500. What we can interpret from these numbers is that we are currently in a very strong seller's market with rising prices and a shortage of inventory. Further support for this argument can be seen with the rising minimum and maximum sales prices compared to last year. The minimum sales price rose from $395,000 in 2016 to $455,000 in 2017, while the maximum rose from $25,200,000 in 2016 to $31,100,000 in 2017. The spread of inventory is not expanding but the market for residential homes is rising to a higher sales bracket all together.











Planned Unit Developments (PUD’s) are steadily climbing with a 5% 
increase to the median price of $1,065,000 vs. last year at this time. 
Price ranges vary per complex with entry level beginning at $353,000 
Mt. Rose Chalets, mid-level $1,125,000 Red Cedar Estates, and a high of $1,330,000 Incline Creek Estates.
New construction at Incline Creek Estates has accounted for a higher median list price for PUD’s currently on the market than we have seen in previous years and time will tell if the higher price point results in sales.​

















The condominium market remains strong with median sales price of $442,500 and 87 total listings sold. With higher prices for single family homes, many buyers are considering other options within their respectable price range. This has lead to a surge interest in the condominium market through the first six months of this year. 


Mt. Shadows complex leads the market with 10 listings sold at a median price point of $328,750. The sales volume at this price point is further proof that the condominium market will continue to flourish as long as home prices continue to increase.​










"When communities age and inventory becomes tight, a new real estate trend tends to emerge: raze and rebuild. It’s increasingly happening around the North Shores of Lake Tahoe on the Nevada side, where Californians desire an escape from high taxes. When a strong economy results in a scarcity of quality homes, people struggle to find what they’re looking for in the market. 

However, tearing down and starting all over is a huge undertaking. Ideally, prospective homebuyers want a home that’s live-in ready. The second choice tends to be a rebuild. The third choice tends to be starting from scratch on a vacant lot."​​
