There were 310 homes active on the market and available for purchase (not in contract or escrow) at the end of March. This is a 36% increase from last month and a 66% increase from this time last year. We are starting to see more listings come to market as we head into Spring. Home buyer demand is still largely responsible for most new listings going into contract quickly. That strong demand combined with low standing inventory causes prices to rise.

Reno/Sparks area REALTORS sold 495 single family homes in March, which was a 32% increase from February and a 4.2% increase from March 2021. This is further evidence of the strong demand in our region, as the increases in inventory are quickly absorbed by the buyers in the market.

The median sales price for single-family homes in Reno/Sparks increased by almost 3%, or $16,000 in the last month, coming in at $575,000 for March. That is a new record for monthly median price in our region. Year-over-year, median price has increased by 20%. Additionally, sellers received 101.6% of asking price on average for homes sold in the month of March 2022.

Average Days on Market for March decreased by 15% over the last month to 57 days. Days on market also decreased by just over 16% compared to this time last year. Another marker of a fast market is Days to Contract; here we see an average of 5 days from initial listing until a home goes into contract. In this very fast paced market, it is more important than ever to be pre-qualified with a lender before looking at homes to buy, and to have an expert REALTOR assist you with navigating the negotiations when making a home purchase.
