Moving is never a fun experience, but there are things that can make it more bearable. And moving all of your earthly belongings during a snowstorm is just plain miserable. Whether it's your schedule or the weather, many people find summer to be the best time to move. 

Plenty of Sun. On average, Reno has 252 days of sun each year. The national average is only 205 days of sun. That chance increases significantly during the summer months. If you're pulling a full day or weekend of moving, you'll get more daylight and less chance of wet weather during the summer. 

Kids Aren't in School. This might be the biggest reason why summer moves are most popular. Moving during the summer helps kids maintain their routines and gives them a chance to settle in

You don’t need a huge yard to create a beautiful and low-maintenance garden. Whether your yard is more of a courtyard or you enjoy spacious acres, these easy garden ideas will inspire you to put on your gardening gloves.

1. Xeriscaping. Drought-tolerant plants like cacti and succulents do well in our dry summers. Instead of installing sod, rock or gravel are water-friendly solutions. 

2. Shade Plants. If you have shaded areas in your yard, it's easy to ignore them. Because a shaded area can look a little somber with just single tone plants. Work with your local garden center to choose a variety of plants that add texture and color.

As of April 29th, there were 964 single family homes available for purchase, which is over a 13% increase from the beginning of April. An even more sizable increase of 38% was realized since this time last year, providing needed relief to home buyers in our region. Sixty-nine percent of available homes are priced under $600,000.

For homes priced under $300,000, we only have about 18 days of inventory, and for homes in the range of $300,000 to $600,000, inventory is 2 months.

The $900,000 to $1,500,000 price range represents the most balanced market with 4.7 months
