August 2019 – Inventory & Percent of Sales Report – Reno/Sparks
Here’s the latest information about the Reno/Sparks real estate market, from the experts at Dickson Realty.
As of July 30th, there were 1,321 single family homes available for purchase, which is a 4.4% increase over the last month. An even more sizable increase of 28% was realized since this time last year, providing needed relief to homebuyers in our region. Sixty-nine percent of available homes are priced under $600,000.
For homes priced under $300,000, we have 31 days of inventory, and for homes in the range of $300,000 to $600,000, inventory is about 2.5 months. If you own a home in either of these price ranges, it is a very good time to sell with little competition in the marketplace. Inventory of homes priced from $600,000 to $900,000 is 5 months, and the $900,000 to $1,500,000 price range is 5.8 months. These two price ranges represent the most balanced market between buyers and sellers. For homes priced over $1,500,000, we have a 15.6 month supply. A five to six month supply of homes represents a balanced market, where neither buyers nor sellers have a distinct advantage.
The total number of home sales this year is down nearly 5% compared to this time last year. Year-to-date, 86% of home sales in Reno/Sparks have been under $600,000, and 9% of sales have been between $600,000 and $900,000. About 5% of sales have been over $900,000.
