Farmers markets in Reno and Sparks have always been a time to enjoy the warm summer months while shopping for specialty products from local artisans, farmers, and vendors. Every year, people look forward to sampling and conversing with others to learn more about the artistic and farm-to-table process. But when the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted business operations last year, the farmers market community had no choice but to adapt and evolve. 

Sampling was prohibited, social distancing was enforced, seating areas were eliminated, and employees were screened for COVID-19 before entry. Farmers markets—classified as special events—are required to follow state directives and county health guidelines.

With this in mind, Nevada recently adopted CDC guidance…

Demand for housing in the Reno/Sparks region is strong, which is keeping upward pressure on home prices, while market times remain fast. Here’s the latest info from the experts at Dickson Realty.

When discussing median price, 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 by 2% to $494,500 from March to April. This is another new record median price for single-family home sales in the region. Year-over-year, median price is up by 19%, and we expect it to continue trending up in the coming months.

Our local housing market through April 30th showed continued strong demand with a slight improvement in inventory. Here are the latest statistics for the single-family homes in the Reno/Sparks area.
