The question our agents hear most is this: “When is the best time to buy or sell real estate in Reno and Sparks?”

Since the pandemic, we’ve seen new trends starting and old trends behaving differently, making the market challenging to navigate. In this context, it’s essential to know how seasonality affects the real estate market. Historically, the market slows down in the colder months, and in the warmer months, the market is more active.

But this wasn’t the case in 2020—the economic shutdown created the perfect storm. Sellers were hesitant to sell, and many people were moving from more populated areas searching for space and better quality of life, which caused available inventory to plummet and housing prices to skyrocket across the country.

Incline Village Real Estate: Condos 

Condominiums offer buyers the opportunity to own real estate in Incline Village for less than the price of most single-family homes and with less maintenance. So, it’s easy to see why they’re one of the most popular segments of the market. Some buyers are looking for a place to lay their head at night after a big adventure, while others want a second home rather than a primary residence. Either way, condos offer the perfect solution. 

In Q3, the median price for a condo in Incline Village reached $846,750, about 6% higher than last quarter and 18% higher year-over-year. This graph also shows the number of available units decreased by about 18% from the previous year.

There were 541 homes active on the market and available for purchase (not in contract or escrow) at the end of September. There have been small but steady increases in standing inventory every month since March. When compared to this time last year, the standing inventory is 27% higher than September 2020. Despite the increases, the strong demand from home buyers is putting most new listings into contract quickly and often with multiple offers. All of this…

If you read our last blog on the “crazy” leaving the Reno Sparks real estate market, then you know that housing prices and supply are beginning to stabilize.

This stayed true in August 2021, when the market continued to shift from the beginning of the year. Active inventory is up, and the rate at which median prices are increasing is slowing, which many buyers will appreciate. While the median home price increased month-over-month, the rate of increase slowed to 1%—a decrease compared to June when we saw a more than 5% increase month-over-month.

We’re still experiencing an influx of cash buyers from people looking for homes and a better quality of life in Northern Nevada. With historically low…

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

As of October 1st 2021, there were 541 homes available for purchase, which is an increase of 12% over last month and the sixth consecutive month of increased inventory. There was also a significant increase of 27% compared to this same time last year. Demand for homes that are coming to market is one of the biggest causes for the low inventory that we are seeing today, but the market is starting to somewhat stabilize as the demand is satisfied.

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