How’s the Dollar Point Market?


Dollar Point is absolutely hot with almost nothing for sale. A typical mid-summer listing count would see 15-24 DP properties for sale. Currently there are just 5 active listings and 12 are in escrow.


A couple current escrows perfectly illustrate how nuts the DP market is – reach out to Alex for particulars.


I was able to help a seller achieve a record setting sale on Edgecliff Way this year for $4.375m.


We are seeing multiple offers on most properties and even at the highest levels. We are seeing non-contingent offers and competitive bidding on homes that are handled properly.


What does this mean?


It’s easy to get a high valuation of your property. But handling the process is where there are vast differences in real estate agents. The listing process needs to be done carefully, strategically, and experience matters. If you do it right, you will get non-contingent, high price, quick close offers. If you need more time in your Tahoe-Truckee home, we can work that, as well. Call me to discuss how I help buyers and sellers navigate the wild ride that is Tahoe-Truckee real estate in Summer 2020!


Important Notes on the Edgecliff Sale: I was able to sell this home off-market per sellers’ request. This was handled in an efficient manner with no interruption of their rental nor personal schedules. The selling price is $1072/foot which the highest price per foot ever recorded for a Dollar Point non-lakefront home. Note: I helped a different client achieve the record for highest Dollar Point MLS sale: $8,199,000 in 2015.


Dollar Point is an incredibly highly-desired neighborhood. You and I both know why. I’ve lived in Dollar Point and absolutely love it. So do today’s buyers…

 Selling in Dollar Point

Dollar Point is amazing: as far as real estate sales and rentals, it has become one of the hottest neighborhoods in North Tahoe. It is a primary area of focus for my business. It’s one of the greatest neighborhoods around the entire Lake. There are big views, nice southern exposures, quality amenities, and fantastic proximity to Tahoe’s best activities year-round. I look at it as a micro-market since it has enough sales volume and a captive audience of enthusiasts. Therefore, it also enjoys an attentive buyer target group. Do keep in mind, however, that the Recreation Association is making changes to the rules regarding renters and their access to amenities.

I have lived in Dollar Point. I talk to Dollar Point owners and sellers often and thoroughly enjoy discussing the neighborhood. I have clients and friends throughout the neighborhood. When selling in Dollar Point, I combine my neighborhood knowledge with 16 years in the business and 25 in Tahoe. I am known for high-quality, creative marketing. See more about my approach here.

I hold the MLS record for the highest sale in the neighborhood at $8.199m. I represented the sellers of the fantastic Alpenhaus (see Before that I sold an impressive lakeview home on Edgecliff twice – once for $4,000,000 then in March 2020 for $4,375,000.
