Market Report - DOM and Median Price - Reno/Sparks

Let’s take a look at Median Price and Days on Market trends over the past 6 months in the greater Reno-Sparks area. These statistics exclude Condo sales and focus only on single family home sales activity in the region.

Reno/Sparks area Realtors sold 572 single family homes in June, which was not a significant change from May, but was a 24% decrease in sales compared to this time last year.

In June, the number of available homes increased nearly 10% to 924 homes. Although this helps provide some relief to buyers, the available inventory is also down by over 20% when compared to June of last year.

If you're one of the millions of American homeowners with a concrete patio, you may be considering ideas to spruce up the space. Outdoor living spaces are especially popular with home buyers. If you are considering selling your home, a patio upgrade could be a good investment. Below are 7 tips that will update your patio. 

1. Use Paint to Get Creative. Stencils can add a creative look to a concrete patio. Make sure to use outdoor paint and powerwash the patio first. Large designs will be much easier for the diy-er than small, intricate designs. 

2. Install Clay Pavers over Existing Patio. Clay pavers can be an efficient way to "resurface" your patio if you are looking for an entirely new look without tearing out your existing patio.

Our market has heated up as the summer selling season gets into full swing. As of July 2nd, there were 1,029 homes available for purchase in Reno-Sparks, which is nearly a 26% increase from May. However, our inventory is still less than this time last year. Over 70% of available homes have asking prices below $600,000.

Absorption Rate, or Days of Available Inventory, is the amount of time it would take to sell off existing homes for sale if no additional homes entered the market. The National Association of REALTORS considers 5 to 6 months of inventory a healthy market, where neither buyers nor sellers have a distinct advantage.

For homes priced below $300,000, we have only 23 days of inventory. For homes in the range of $300,000-$600,000,…
