Lake Tahoe - A Two State Affair

Lake Tahoe is more than just a freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada range.

Are you planning to buy a luxury home in Lake Tahoe? 

Lake Tahoe is more than just a freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada range. It is a beacon for nature enthusiasts and a model of inter-governmental environmental responsibility and cooperation. 

It is shared between the states of California and Nevada, with the lake actually being two-thirds in California and one-third in Nevada. In 1864, there was a dispute about the boundary, so it was decided that the Colorado River and the center of the lake would be the dividing line. 

Whether you live in California or Nevada, residents are able to take advantage of its myriad attractions, including ski resorts and gambling casinos. Both states work together to preserve the beauty of the lake, which makes real estate very valuable wherever you choose to live. 

The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency was formed over 45 years ago as a partnership between California and Nevada to preserve Lake Tahoe and its environment. Growth caps were established to keep the area from becoming a city as large as San Francisco. It's extremely important to maintain the lake's clarity and to preserve the wildlife habitat, vegetation, and recreation. 

There are several excellent towns around the Lake Tahoe area, including these located in California: Truckee, Tahoe City, and South Lake Tahoe, while North Shore, Incline Village and Stateline are found in Nevada. There are also many well-known resorts, including Squaw Valley and Heavenly Mountain nearby. 

One of the advantages to living on the Nevada side is the tax breaks. Property taxes tend to be less than California's, but they are county specific. Also, there is no personal income tax in Nevada. However, to take advantage of the tax incentives, you must make Nevada your principal place of residence. 

The Lake Tahoe luxury real estate market is thriving. Whether you choose to live in California or Nevada, you'll love the community feeling. Some of the most expensive homes are found on the coast of Crystal Bay in Incline Village, and in Zephyr Cove, a neighborhood in Nevada on Lake Tahoe's eastern shore. With their proximity to ski resorts, casinos, beaches, marinas, and great outdoors lifestyle, it's no wonder some of the world's most rich and famous choose Lake Tahoe as their home.
