Lahontan, ideally situated midway between Lake Tahoe and Truckee, continues to be one of the smartest places to buy real estate in the North Tahoe area. As one of the most established private resort communities, families love the serene and amenity rich lifestyle that Lahontan offers. With 906 acres, many of which border open space and trail systems, Lahontan encompasses the true feeling of being in the mountains.

While home values in neighboring Martis Camp are at an all-time high, many buyers are finding Lahontan to be more to their taste both from both budget and lifestyle standpoints. Homes in Lahontan have been closing on average at just over $500/sq.ft. In comparison to other resort communities, Martis Camp homes are selling in the $1,000/sq.ft. range while Gray’s Crossing and Old Greenwood are trading in the low $400/sq.ft. range. Additionally, the high quality of the homes in Lahontan further establishes this community as an exceptional opportunity for ownership in North Tahoe.

With 10 homes already sold or pending this year, Lahontan is on the fast track to exceed the 15 total homes that were sold in 2014. In fact, there is currently such high demand for new construction homes in Lahontan that builders have been able to secure buyers for spec homes long before they ever hit the market.

This summer will undoubtedly be fruitful for the Lahontan real estate market and exciting for all of the new people who get to call this gem of a community home.
