We are going to Tahoe this Wednesday and Thursday and if we have time we will have a good look around. We are ideally looking for somewhere that we can rent out eithger full time or on a part time basis over the next ten years.
I am not sure whether it is better to buy on the California side for this purpose (I would prefer to retire to the Nevada side for tax reasons) as it is closer to the main ski resorts and summer activities.
Thank you for contacting me through Trulia.
Taxes on a home in the approximate price range of $600,000 would be approximately $5300 per year.
In our County, our taxes do not change upon transfer of ownership. The taxes will be increased only 3% per year. County takes care of the roads to remove snow. The owners are responsible to have snow removal for the property. That can run anywhere from approximately $500 a month to maybe $650 month depending upon how big of driveway you have.
Included in your property taxes, $775 goes towards keeping up the six amenities. They consist of two Sandy beaches, two 18 hole golf courses, down hill ski area and a 11 court tennis complex.
If there is any additional information you would like, please contact me.
Also, if you like me to set you up to receive new listings and price changes as they come on the market, please send me your criteria and price range and I set you up.
I forward to hearing from you.

Snow removal cost also vary with different service providers. Generally a seasonal contract can run $800-$1300. Another option is contracting "per push". Instead of paying for an entire season you contract for snow removal service after each snow fall aka "per push". Those rates also vary and may cost in the ranges of $75-$125 per push. If you purchase a condominium or town home, snow removal services are included in your monthly HOA dues.
