Here’s a quick look at the housing market in the Reno-Sparks area.


The median sales price for single-family homes sold in November 2015 increased by over $10,000, to $290,000, and over $42,000 for condos, to $164,000 when compared to October. November also had the first downtown Reno condo sale of over $1 million in more than 6 years!

The average days on market for homes between October and November remained consistent, only decreasing from 96 to 95.  The average days on market for condos decreased at a more significant rate from 87 to 77.

A decrease in months of inventory for single family homes and condos in our region means the market will likely continue to be in a seller’s market as we enter 2016. The Reno and Sparks area remains an especially strong seller’s markets 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 percent 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 likely continue if these population growth and economic projections are correct.
