The West Lake Tahoe area is defined as beginning at Fanny Bridge in Tahoe City, also known as the “Y” and moving south along the West Shore of Lake Tahoe (Highway 89 South) and ending in Rubicon Bay.
This area covers just over thirteen (13) miles and this report is for condo/townhouse developments that are located in West Lake Tahoe – Tahoe City (West Shore), Homewood, and Tahoma, CA. There are no condo/townhouse developments in
either Meeks Bay, or Rubicon Bay, CA.
Many Tahoe condo buyers may not realize how few condo, or townhouse units were ever built on the entire West Lake Tahoe area. Unlike the North Shore of Lake Tahoe where there are just under 1,800 units; on the West Shore, there are only ten (10) condo/townhouse developments located along the West Shore of Lake Tahoe with an estimate of less than 550 units for the entire area, just less than one-third of the supply of units that are located on the North Shore.
In those ten (10) condo/townhouse developments, six (6) are lakefront developments, one (1) is a ski/tennis resort, one (1) is a lakeside development, and two (2) are mountain-side developments. Since the condo/townhouse developments are so
limited on the West Shore, condo/townhouse units often command a significant market premium relative to other locations around the lake.
It is estimated from Placer County and El Dorado County records that approximately 538 condo and townhouse developments were built on the entire West Shore of Lake Tahoe. Of those units, there are approximately 348 units located in lakefront developments, and 190 units in mountain-side non-lakefront developments.
As a side note, there perhaps a dozen, or so mini-condo duplex style condos located in the greater Tahoe City area. They typically appear in the Tahoe Woods, Talmont, and Cathderal/Comstock areas on the West Shore and are not part of this review, but buyers should be aware that this type of two unit condo ownership does come on the market every once in a while.
At any one given time, you can expect the current supply of condos or townhouses for sale on West Lake Tahoe will be extremely limited. It is not uncommon for less than a dozen units to be listed for sale and on the market at any one given time.
