How’s the Dollar Point Market?

There are over 500 homes in the subdivision and guess how many are for sale? Exactly 2 (as of 5.11). It’s pretty incredible. There are 2 in escrow at $1.1m and $1.9m. Among the upcoming listings which I know of is 50 Edgecliff Court. This pano lakeview home will enter the market at $5m which is almost a record high for Dollar Point non-lakefront.

Dollar Point has become majorly attractive for buyers. Days on market is 1/3 of that for the surrounding area. “Nothing is for sale and everything is selling” – my phrase for Tahoe thus far in 2018 applies especially well for DP.

2017 Recap: Dollar Point had an interesting year in 2017. Volume was down substantially. But the sales happened incredibly fast. Time on market was 2x faster than the rest of Tahoe Basin. Dollar Point homes averaged 35 days on market; the Basin was at 78.

However, there was typically very little offered for sale so options were not wide. There were stretches of time where there were only a dozen homes on the market. That number is usually between 15-20.  See all current listings here.

Higher-end Dollar Point buyers were very selective. Due to low inventory there were 5 homes between $1.5m – $4.3m which were rejected by the market. This was not the case the year before. 2016 saw multiple sales over $1.5m including $2.4m and $3.6m. In contrast, the highest sale in 2017 was $1.7m.

 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.

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 14 years in the business and 23 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 DollarPointLakefront.com). Before that I sold an impressive lakeview home on Edgecliff for $4,000,000.
