Gardner Mountain

South Lake Tahoe Welcome Sign

Located at South Lake Tahoe, Gardner Mountain is loved by its residents due to its location to nearby shops, Raley’s grocery store and the proximity by bike to local trails, the beach and Fallen Leaf Lake.  Lot sizes are also a bit larger and range up to 10,000 square feet.  As of April 2019 the median sales price for this area is $370,000 – a 2.8% increase from this time last year.  The area topographically rises gradually from the corner of Highway 50 at Lake Tahoe Blvd towards the back of the neighborhood at 13th St and Gardner St – adjacent to our High School.

South Lake Tahoe – 1st Quarter 2019

Emerald Bay
South Lake Tahoe had an 18% decline in the number of residential homes sold in the first quarter of 2019. I reckon the 15% increase in the median sales price to $550,000 had something to do with it. How much longer can the upward trend continue? It’s any bodies guess really. Some speak of an over sold stock market.  I’d expect real estate to benefit if a sell off scenario occurs. Mortgage delinquencies are still low so no worries there.
South Lake Tahoe condominium sales volume declined 68% from last year. The number of units sold also declined by 45%. So how much did the median sales price decline? – by 27%. Just know that those in the lower price ranges are the ones currently selling their residences.
