Fort Churchill State Historic Park

An integral part of Nevada history, Fort Churchill Historic State Park preserves a U.S. military outpost that provided resources and protection to early settlers exploring the American West. These ruins highlight a time when the Pony Express and Overland Routes were highly traveled. Nestled alongside the Carson River, Fort Churchill is an excellent place to camp, hike, canoe, bird watch, and horseback ride while also learning about Nevada’s early pioneering days.

While the Reno housing market recently set records for its median sales price, the area’s standing inventory is growing, giving buyers more options this summer. Here are five things you need to know about buying or selling a home in the Reno housing market right now.

1. The median sales price is up in the Reno housing market and Sparks

For the first time, the median price of a home in the combined Reno-Sparks housing market hit the $500,000 mark. If you had asked me before the pandemic when we might have seen this in the Reno housing market, I would’ve ventured to guess in 2023 or, more likely 2024. So, the fact we’re seeing this record set in 2021 is incredible.

The median price increased by 1.5% month over month and more than 25% in one…

Written by Rebecca Dickson, Vice President of the Dickson Realty Luxury Division. 

 

Historically, most buyers of Reno luxury homes entered the market from Northern California after they had retired or sold a business. The state’s tax benefits provided a substantial draw and benefit to this group, whose entry-level price started at about $2 million.

However, the characteristics of the typical Reno luxury home buyer began to change about 30 months ago and became supercharged by the pandemic. Now, more buyers interested in Reno luxury homes come from Southern California, are in their 30s or 40s and have a budget of at least $4 million.

This shift in demographics, preferences, and geography of buyers is driving an increase in interest in Reno…

Nationally and locally, one of the most talked-about themes in real estate is the high demand for homes, which is driving record median prices and fast market times. Here’s the latest information on the Reno/Sparks market, from the experts at Dickson Realty.

There were 268 homes active on the market and available for purchase (not in contract or escrow) at the end of May, which was a welcomed increase of about 7% from April 2021. In May 2020, there were 737 available listings, so today’s active inventory is down by 64% from a year ago.

Our local housing market has a little good news for buyers with an increase in inventory to help meet the sustained high demand. Here are the latest statistics for the single-family homes in the Reno/Sparks area.

As of June 1, 2021, there were 268 homes available for purchase which is an increase of nearly 7% over last month. Although inventory is down 64% compared to June of 2020, today’s low inventory numbers don’t necessarily mean fewer homes are being listed or sold. In reality, we have more sales than last year at this time. Strong demand for the homes that are coming to market is one of the biggest causes for the low inventory numbers that we are seeing.

Months or Days of Inventory is typically how REALTORS refer to the amount of time…
