I'm not sure anyone enjoys moving. Sure, moving into a new home is exciting.  You have a fresh canvas and new memories to be made. But the actual process of moving? It's just not pleasant. You can save yourself much of the hassle by hiring a professional moving company. Their services typically include either moving the things you have packed or professionally packing and loading your items and unloading and unpacking at your new residence. Before you hire a moving company, there are several questions you should ask to make the move as smooth as possible. 

1. Is there anything you will not move? Confirm the movers will be able to move heavy furniture, like pianos, or your vintage wine collection. If you have anything especially valuable or sentimental,…

Fall offers home sellers unique home decor to use for decorating and staging your home. But before you rush out and purchase a cart full of pumpkin decor, consider if seasonal decor helps a home sell or makes it more difficult and how you can make it work to your advantage. 

Seasonal decor is temporary. Even in today's hot market, professional photos are key. Sometimes homeowners choose to have the home's professional photos taken several weeks before the home is listed, so they can start packing and the photos show the home at its best (without boxes or moving supplies around). If your professional photos are taken mid-November with all of your fall decor up, it will look like a dated listing if the property hits the market in December. Consider your…

The Northern Nevada real estate market and the rest of the country have experienced record prices and bidding wars since the start of the pandemic. But some experts believe the industry is softening or that the ‘crazy’ is just leaving the housing market.

The growth rate of prices and buyer demand are slowing down, and the market is showing signs of returning to a more typical seller’s market. And although we can’t predict the future, there are three key fundamental differences between the current market and the 2008 Great Recession, which is why we’re doubtful to see another crash.

At Dickson Realty, we regularly share insights into the Northern Nevada real estate market to help you make informed decisions. So, whether you’re thinking about buying…

It seems that every summer we have to deal with smoke from wildfires. This summer has been especially severe with the Caldor and Dixie fires burning so close to home.  The Air Quality Index has been in the very unhealthy and hazardous ranges for several days and many people are choosing to stay inside.
