Here we take a look at the most recent market statistics for the Reno/Sparks area:

Dickson Realty Market Trends- Market News June 11, 2015 from Dickson Realty on Vimeo.

In May, the total number of single family home sales in the greater Reno/Sparks area was up 3.5% from April.  The median sales price of $284,950 in May is at its highest point over the past six months, marking a 5.1% increase from April and an 8.8% increase since December 2014.

There was a sharp increase in the number of homes available for purchase in May, totaling 881 for the month. This development bucks the trend of decreasing available listings, where we saw available listings decrease each month since December 2014.  Typically inventory levels begin to rise as we get further into spring, and we definitely reached that point in the market at this point in May. Also, the outlook for more new home construction is positive as we head into the peak building season, which should provide some relief for our region’s constrained inventory.


The month of May average days on market was 92, which is a slight decrease of 95 from April. The average days on market has been relatively stable for the past several months, with January recording the highest average days on market of 125 over the past six months.
