Lake Tahoe experienced robust luxury home sales in 2018, with closings on single-family homes over $1 million increasing by 19%. Average median prices rose 12% around the lake, except on the East Shore where prices softened by 9%.
Reno witnessed a 51% increase in home sales over $1 million this year, as the rest of the market paused a bit moving into 2019.
“Luxury really made a comeback this year,” said Susan Lowe, Senior Vice President and Corporate Broker at Chase International. “We saw some very strong numbers in the luxury segment, which we define at over a million dollars, roughly. Across the region, the million dollar luxury market is up 25% from 2017.”
