In comparing the Reno Real Estate Market this year with last year we see an overall decline in the number of single family homes sold, a declining sales prices and longer days each home spent listed on the market. The Reno real estate market is very active with bank owned and short sale properties.

 With a smaller number of homes sold over last year means we are still in a buyers market. Medium list prices and medium sold prices were down about 3% from last year. Medium prices continue to fluctuate within in a narrow range. This continued trend of minor fluctuations may indicate we are near the bottom of the market. When the end will come is any ones guess. But as interest rates remain low, buying real estate is still considered a good investment.
