The Reno-Sparks real estate market, priced $1 million and higher, continues to see a shortfall of inventory, in particular luxury new construction. The average price per square foot of homes selling in today's market is $345.07. As the cost of building materials and labor continue to increase, we will likely see this number go up. 

Our lifestyles may be changing for the long term and the things we desire in our home are also changing. Dickson's partner, Luxury Portfolio International, reports the most-desired amenities that appeal to affluent home buyers are also evolving. Here are the top 4 trends:

Our local housing market is still going strong as we enter into this fall season. Here are the latest statistics for the single-family home market in the Reno/Sparks area:   

Days or Months of Inventory is the amount of time it would take to exhaust all available homes for sale if no additional homes came into the market. For homes priced under $300,000, we have a remarkable 7.5 days of inventory, and for homes in the range of $300,000 to $600,000, inventory is only 13 days. While the low inventory represents a very real challenge for buyers, now is an extremely good time to sell a home in either of these price ranges, with little competition and multiple offers being received on many listings.

Our market has had a steady decline in inventory since April, which is contributing to higher prices and hurting affordability. Fortunately, mortgage rates are remaining at near all time lows, which brings some relief to buyers.

Fire, Matchstick House, Burning Matchstick HouseFire Prevention Week runs through October 10th. This year, the theme is "Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!" The kitchen is the number one source of home fires, most often caused by unattended cooking. Learn what things you can do, and teach your children to do, to keep everyone in the home safe while cooking by visiting the National Fire Protection Association. There are some excellent videos and resources for kids of all ages. 

Living in Northern Nevada means we have to be prepared for wildfires, as we have seen recently. Embers can be carried more than a mile on the wind, so making sure your home is protected is the best prevention possible.
