Days on Market & Median Price Report – May 2021

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.

The Average Days on Market decreased by 13 days, or 19%, to 55 days through April. This is the lowest Days on Market time we have seen since 2004, so it is quite remarkable. Last year at this time, days on market was 80 days, which is more typical for this time of year. The fast market represents a challenge for buyers, but should not deter anyone looking to purchase a home.

If you are in the buying market, be sure to have your loan pre-approval completed before starting your search. Dickson Realty agents have tools that allow you to tap into the home equity you currently may have to write more competitive offers while remaining in your home throughout the buying process. Reach out today to learn more about the process.

Many of the amenities we desire in our homes have changed for the long term. Whether you need extra office or study spaces, a better-equipped kitchen, or a dedicated home fitness studio, we’re here to help you find the space that is right for your lifestyle.

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…

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…

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…
