This year's New Year's Eve fireworks show in downtown Reno will last 13 minutes and will be shot off from the rooftops of Harrah's and Silver Legacy. Many of the roads in the downtown area will be closed to vehicle traffic. If you want to watch the fireworks show from a location other than downtown, you can hear the accompanying music by tuning into Alice 96.5. Or if you'd prefer to watch the show from the comfort of your living room, you can see it on KRNV News 4.

Dickson Realty Spotlight on the City of Reno with Mayor Hillary Schieve from Dickson Realty on Vimeo.

The new year is almost here, and for many people, that means the next few weeks are a time for reflection and planning. That's true for Reno's mayor Hillary Schieve, who sat down with me to talk about what’s next for Reno and the big projects she and the city government plan to work on in 2018 and beyond.

According to the Reno-Sparks Association of REALTORS, the Reno-Sparks area experienced a 2.7% increase in median price from $345,500 in October to $355,000 in November. This price was 14.5% higher than November of last year, and 21%, or $61,505 higher than November, 2015. These year over year increases highlight the strong demand for housing being driven by low housing inventory, continued low mortgage rates and economic growth. We anticipate the median price will continue to increase in the long term, especially in the most affordable price ranges that fall below $600,000, where over 90% of home sales occur.

According to the Reno Sparks Association of Realtors, the Median Sold Price for single family homes and condos in the Reno/Sparks area increased by 1.9% to $336,250 through November. A more significant 14% increase is seen when we compare this price to a year ago. One of the largest, if not the largest reason for the double-digit year over year increase in value is due to the sustained demand and the continued low inventory levels. We expect prices will continue to rise until more homes are available in the market.

The number of homes sold decreased by 8.3% in November, with 600 sales versus 654 in October. There was also a 2.6% decrease in the number of homes sold compared to November of last year. While it is typical to have sales tapering off this…

The housing market across most of the United States is strong right now. Reno-Sparks isn't seeing the usual slow down that we often find in the winter months and if you're a home buyer or plan on purchasing a home in the near future, you may be concerned. There are several things you can do when looking for a new home to help you break through the competition to find and purchase the home of your dreams. 

1. Instant Alerts. We offer the option to be instant alerted when a home meeting your requirements comes on the market. Instead of searching real estate sites every other day, this will alert you immediately so you can schedule a time to view it. Our system is directly tied to the MLS, so you will see all of the homes for sale in Reno-Sparks, not just…

If this was a typical year, we would expect activity in the Reno/Sparks area for Single Family homes to cool off slightly in the last quarter of the year. However, continued strong demand and the constrained inventory of affordable homes continues to drive a Seller’s market in many price ranges and neighborhoods. Let’s take a look at the details.

There were 783 homes available for purchase at the end of November. This a decrease of 18.7% when compared to October, and down a staggering 43% when compared to this time last year. Next, we will look at the number of units sold.

The Reno-Sparks real estate market is still going strong, with supply low and demand high especially in homes under $600,000. If you're planning to sell your home, that doesn't mean you can take break and not fully prepare your home for the market if you want the best price. First impressions can mean a lot when buyers are looking for a new home. Below are some things you can do to make sure your home makes a great first impression. 

1. Focus on Curb Appeal. Your front yard and porch will be the first thing potential viewers see in person. It won't matter how gorgeous the pictures of your home are on the MLS if your front yard is a wreck, there are toys scattered all over the lawn and your porch is in disrepair. Clean up your yard, trim bushes and…

Let’s take a look at the Reno/Sparks housing inventory and year to date sales statistics by price range. Demand for affordable housing in Reno-Sparks is high, and supply is low. This creates a challenging environment for home buyers and sellers alike. Here are the details:

In addition to holiday decorating, backing and shopping for presents for your family and friends, there are a few home maintenance tasks you should do in December. The peace of mind from finishing these tasks is worth taking a quick break from the holiday season fun. 

1. Protect Your Pipes. If you haven't done this already, plan to do it very soon. We've already had a couple cold snaps and the time it takes to protect your pipes from freezing is minimal compared to the mess and expense should one burst. In the event of an emergency, know where your main water shutoff is located. 

2. Check the Oven Seal. If your over is older, or if you notice longer cooking times, give the oven seal a quick inspection. Check the seal for cracks or breaks and if you…
