Home. It has never been so important. And, the strong demand for housing in the Reno/Sparks region is proving this statement true. Although we experienced a slight dip in median price in the month of May, we are firmly into our traditional busy season with unprecedented low inventory, which has helped to stabilize both price and time on market.

“Median” means “in the middle”, so half of homes sold for more and half sold for less. According to the Reno-Sparks Association of REALTORS, the regional median price increased from $405,000 to $435,000 from June to July. Our year-over-year median price is up by 7% and we expect the median price for sales in the coming months to continue trending up at a manageable pace.

Plant, Workstation, Laptop, Pot, Work, TableBuying a home isn't often considered an easy process. From financing to finding a home to inspections and closing, there's a lot going on. During the Covid-19 pandemic, how we are buying and selling has changed, but the real estate market is strong. If you are planning to look for a new home in the near future, consider these five tips. 

1. Prepare to search virtually. Most home buyers do their initial house hunting online anyway. Today we're seeing more virtual home tours and videos as people choose to socially distance. Many real estate agents are providing video tours of the homes they have listed so home buyers can get a feel for the property before seeing it in person. 

2. Plan to shop for a mortgage lender. Because interest rates are so low,

Insurance, Home, Protection, Home Insurance, HouseAs the world turns to virtual learning, virtual working, and more time spent at home, more people are thinking about buying a bigger house. In the Reno/Sparks housing market, there is currently a unique set of circumstances that make this desire more achievable for some homeowners than they may think.
