Let’s take a look at the most recent trends in Median Price and Days on Market for the greater Reno-Sparks area.
At the end of May, 2016, the median home price for the Reno-Sparks region climbed to $310,000. This was a 5% increase over last month, and a 9.4% increase from a year ago. We expect the median price to continue to climb as demand in most price ranges, fueled by job creation and low mortgage rates, out paces the supply of affordable homes.
The Average Days on Market for May dropped considerably to just over 78 days. This is the lowest average since August of last year, and significantly lower than the prior 6 months. The average Days on Market usually trends downward this time of year, and through summer, after peaking in the winter months.
Why should this information matter to you? For sellers in price ranges below $500,000, the low inventory and high demand make this a great time to talk to a Dickson Realty agent about why you should consider selling now.
