With inventory low, buyers are having a tough time finding the perfect home in Lake Tahoe. With so many great lots available and mortgage rates being so low, now is a great time to build! However, there are some regulations in Tahoe that can make it a little more complicated in comparison to other areas. Restrictions on new construction and mandated upgrades for existing homes are put into place for the purpose of preserving, protecting and enhancing the unique environment of our Region. In addition to the normal procedure of obtaining permits to build a home, there is also the Tahoe Regional Planning Association (TRPA), which oversees how large you can build, or even if you can build. As your Lake Tahoe real estate resource, we’d love to guide you through this process. Below are a few of the lots we have listed, as well as more below in our featured properties. Let us know if you have any questions on this process. We’d be happy to help!
