Tahoe Valley is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in South Lake Tahoe, California.

Tahoe Valley real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) single-family homes and small apartment buildings. Most of the residential real estate is occupied by a mixture of owners and renters. Many of the residences in the Tahoe Valley neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built between 1970 and 1999.

Vacant apartments or homes are a major fact of life in Tahoe Valley. The current real estate vacancy rate here is 44.5%. This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 97.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods. A relatively large percentage of housing here is seasonally occupied (37.3%). This can occur in vacation areas, and occasionally it is also found in neighborhoods that are primarily filled with college students, as some apartments could be vacant when school is not in session. If you live here year round, you may find that a number of buildings in your neighborhood are actually empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in South Lake Tahoe, the Tahoe Valley neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: People

Astoundingly, the Tahoe Valley neighborhood has one of the highest concentrations of divorcees living here than of any neighborhood, a higher concentration than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.3% of U.S. neighborhoods. This may be because people living here divorce more often than others, or that divorced people move here after they become divorced. If you are divorced, you will be in good company in this particular South Lake Tahoe neighborhood.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Tahoe Valley neighborhood has more Welsh and Czechoslovakian ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.1% of this neighborhood's residents have Welsh ancestry and 0.9% have Czechoslovakian ancestry.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 44.5% of the residential real estate vacant, the Tahoe Valley neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 97.9% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

There are more people living in the Tahoe Valley neighborhood employed as sales and service workers (54.4%) than almost any neighborhood in the country. From fast-food service workers to major sales accounts, sales and service workers make up the largest proportion of our national employment picture. But despite that size and importance nationally, this neighborhood still stands out as unique due to the dominance of people living here who work in such occupations.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Tahoe Valley neighborhood in South Lake Tahoe are lower-middle income, making it a below average income neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 77.5% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 28.2% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 69.8% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if most of the neighbors are clerical support or managers. What is wonderful is the sheer diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits your lifestyle and aspirations.

In the Tahoe Valley neighborhood, 45.6% of the working population is employed in sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is executive, management, and professional occupations, with 35.6% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in manufacturing and laborer occupations (9.6%), and 7.7% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

Boston's Beacon Hill blue-blood streets, Brooklyn's Orthodox Jewish enclaves, Los Angeles' Persian neighborhoods. Each has its own culture derived primarily from the ancestries and culture of the residents who call these neighborhoods home. Likewise, each neighborhood in America has its own culture – some more unique than others – based on lifestyle, occupations, the types of households – and importantly – on the ethnicities and ancestries of the people who live in the neighborhood. Understanding where people came from, who their grandparents or great-grandparents were, can help you understand how a neighborhood is today.

The Neighbors: Languages

The most common language spoken in the Tahoe Valley neighborhood is English, spoken by 80.5% of households. Some people also speak Spanish (15.1%).

Getting to Work

Even if your neighborhood is walkable, you may still have to drive to your place of work. Some neighborhoods are located where many can get to work in just a few minutes, while others are located such that most residents have a long and arduous commute. The greatest number of commuters in Tahoe Valley neighborhood spend under 15 minutes commuting one-way to work (53.0% of working residents), one of the shortest commutes across America.
