What you need to know about Reno-Sparks real estate

  • Despite a 30% decrease in real estate transactions year over year, prices have managed to stay consistent, demonstrating the resilience of the market.
  • Home sales may be down 7% month over month and 9% year over year, but this is due to a decrease in both new contracts and new listings. That does happen with seasonality particularly in wintertime, November through February
  • The current market situation, characterized by low inventory, is also largely due to sellers enjoying their current situation, thanks to low interest rates and refinancing in the previous three years.
  • Prices are expected to remain fairly stable unless demand decreases further, a trend observed in many other real estate markets across the country.
  • Sellers should anticipate a potential increase in the time properties spend on the market, which could range from 30 to 60 days.
  • On a bright note, mortgage rates have seen the largest decrease in the past year, dropping from 8% to 7.5%. This is anticipated to boost demand.
  • Buyers may find themselves in a stronger negotiating position when it comes to pricing.
  • Sellers can take comfort in the fact that limited inventory might prevent a significant fall in prices.

In essence, the Reno-Sparks real estate market, though experiencing a slowdown, is far from stagnant. It offers opportunities for both buyers and sellers to benefit, with the advantage toward buyers.
