Let’s take a look at Median Price and Days on Market trends over the past 6 months for single family homes in the greater Reno-Sparks area.

According to the Reno-Sparks Association of REALTORS, the Reno-Sparks area experienced an increase of 3.5% in median price from $323,990 in April to 335,575 in May. This price was 8.25% higher than May of last year, and 17.8% higher than May, 2015. These year over year increases emphasize the strong demand for housing being driven by low mortgage rates and healthy economic growth in the region. We anticipate the median price will continue to increase over the long term, especially in the most affordable price ranges.

The Average Days on Market decreased by 5.1% from 98 days in April to 93 days in May. This is the fifth consecutive month of decreases in the time on market, and is a 13.8% percent decrease from December, 2016. That means homes are selling an average of 15 days faster now than at the end of last year. We expect the Days on Market to follow the typical downward trend as we move into the peak selling season of the summer months.
