Here’s a quick look at the Reno/Sparks housing market.

Dickson Realty Market Trends- Market News September 17, 2015 from Dickson Realty on Vimeo.

The median sales price for single family homes and condos sold in August 2015, showed a flattening of the market when compared with July. However, the median sales price is up 16% from a year ago. Some month over month stability after an annual double digit increase is bringing a little relief to those trying to purchase a home in our area.

The average days on market for homes slightly decreased from 79 to 75 between July and August, and the average days on market for condos decreased slightly from 84 to 79 over the same time span.

The increase in months of inventory for both homes and condos, due in part to more active listings and fewer sales, means more properties are becoming available to potential home buyers. Still, the Reno and Sparks areas remain a strong seller’s market, especially for homes priced less than $600,000.

Recent reports from EDAWN and the UNR Center for Regional Studies predict strong economic growth and a 1.4% annual population increase for the next five years. These factors will contribute to a robust demand for housing. The year over year price increases and low inventory that we’ve witnessed for the past couple of years will continue if the projections are correct.
