How’s the Kingswood Market?


Kingswood and Kingswood West had almost nothing for sale earlier this year and that has changed slightly but there are currently only 6 homes for sale. Sales volume is less than last year yet the average sales price is up $100,000. Days on market is less than half of what it was in 2017.

Quick Stats:

  • 6 active Kingswood + Kingswood West listings from $525k to $1.95m.
  • 1 home in escrow at $695k.
  • Sold Units is down: 9 sales vs. 13 last year to this time.
  • 42 days on market vs 94 last year.
A quick phrase for the Tahoe market this year: “There’s nothing for sale yet everything is selling!” Inventory is at historic lows. Yet in classic Tahoe fashion, overpriced or less desirable properties are rotting on the vine.
I’d like you to know my family and I live on Kingswood Drive – we love raising our kids in the neighborhood.

A fun note: Lake Tahoe is just 2 feet from it’s legal limit. This is only 1 foot lower than it was last January.

2017 Recap: Kingswood and Kingswood West have had two fantastic years in a row. 2016 was a record breaker when the neighborhoods collectively closed over $20m in property sales. 2017 followed suit with almost the exact same amount.

While these sales numbers are great, in total Kingswood and Kingswood West have over 700 homes. This means that relatively few sell each year. This is a great opportunity for those considering selling. To give you an example, at one point in 2017 there were just 4 on the market and the same amount were in escrow. See all active listings in Kingswood here.

Kingswood used to be an undiscovered secret ($9.4m in sales in 2012) but now the word is out which one can see by the amount of real estate being sold here every year. And as you go around the neighborhood you’ll notice brand new, large spec homes.

I live in Kingswood Estates and have sold homes there and in Kingswood West. Kingswood is already benefiting from the incredible amount of development which is coming to Kings Beach. The neighborhoods offer so much to Tahoe locals and visitors: mountain and lake vistas; abundant greenbelt; hiking, biking, snowmobiling routes; access to one of the best-maintained forests in the entire Basin; North Tahoe Regional Park; and central to all of North Tahoe yet an easy jump to Truckee and Reno. When selling in Kingswood, I combine all of this 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.
