The Sparks Real Estate Market decreased by nearly 20% from 2010 to 2011. The number of units sold are slightly higher over the same time last year of single family homes sold.

The absorption rate has halted its increase and is remaining steady for the short term. This signals that demand/supply realities are not changing significantly. It is anyones guess if this trend will continue throughout 2011.

It is still a great time for Nevada home buyers to purchase. Home prices are low and inventory is high. Interest rates are still low and Nevada has many first time home buyer mortgage programs to choose from.

Hello Terrie and looking good! There is a area in Carson City just over the mountainside that goes to Lake Tahoe, do you know where I am talking about? Nu Nu and I were wondering what the cheapest condo would sell for in this area? We could rent the condo out for around 10 months out of the year & stay there ourselves 2 months in the summer and drive over the hill and and play at Lake Tahoe in the summer.

I did get your email and how many pics are you interested in?
