Palisades Tahoe real estate is one of those select markets in the country completely identifiable by its name as a high-end ski destination, along with Aspen or Park City or a few other mountain communities. The history of the area is fascinating, and the fact that it hosted the 1960 Winter Olympics played a major role in making the Lake Tahoe region what it is today. Add in the fact that Palisades Tahoe (formerly Squaw Valley) is just a short drive from Sacramento, the Bay Area and Northern California and you have a demand for homes and vacation houses that commands a pretty penny. Due to its individualized nature, the Palisades Tahoe real estate market is flush with ski condos and townhouses, with price tags that climb into the $1 million figures. This number is also just about the starting point for single-family homes, and a house that sells for less than a million is a rare animal indeed. While it is always a smart choice to use a Realtor to help you buy or sell, when you are involved in a transaction in this region it is particularly important to have a Palisades Tahoe real estate professional to help guide you through the process.
