Are You Considering Relocating To Reno, NV? An Open Letter

Dear Potential Reno Home Buyer,

Located in the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains, Reno, NV is a beautiful city rich in bothDowntown Reno At Night tradition and fresh entertainment.  Minutes from the world-famous Lake Tahoe, the Reno-Sparks
community is surrounded by natural beauty and limitless recreational opportunities. I can understand why you would want to live here, I have lived her most of my life and I couldn't be happier this is the place I chose to raise my two children.

Reno has over 18 world-class ski resorts, many just a short 45 minutes from downtown, and 40-plus golf courses. The area also boasts 60 gaming locations, the National Bowling Stadium, the National Automobile Museum, Reno Aces Baseball Stadium, Rancho San Rafael Park's Arboretum and Wilbur D. May Great Basin Adventure, the historic boomtown of Virginia City, and world-class fishing, kayaking, hiking, biking and numerous other outdoor activities. The quality of life is truly tough to beat.

At 4500 feet altitude, the Reno area offers four distinct seasons with few extremes. Average temperatures range from winter lows in the 20's to Summer highs in the 90's. Low humidity characterizes the area, making the cool days seem not so cold and the warm days not so hot. Rain is scarce, snow is certain. Here the sun shines more than 300 days a year.

Tax benefits (no corporate, personal income, unitary, inventory, or franchise tax), accessibility to western markets, transportation hub, abundance of available industrial/office/commercial space, advanced telecommunications infrastructure, business friendly regulations, and high quality of life make this area an extremely attractive place to do business and live. Are you starting to see why I love it so much?Reno Ave Home

The average home price in Reno is approximately $235,000. The average 2 Bedroom apartment is $1100 a month. I can provide you with a list of homes for sale in the Reno area or  you can visit my website @ My Reno Home Search anytime to search for your next reno home.

When people think of Reno, they think of gambling. However, over the last couple of decades, Reno and Sparks have become more than just gaming cities. With many prominent corporations (IGT, Amazon, Renown Health, and soon Tesla),  residing in the area, INC magazine rated Reno to the sixth best places to do business for a mid sized city.  Forbes Lists ranked Reno #123 for being one of the best places for businesses and  careers.

Reno's economy is principally based in the trade and service sector, with approximately 65% of the work force employed in these occupations. Although gaming and other recreational activities represent a significant portion of the growing economy and assessed valuation, the City is experiencing a gradual diversification of its business base with the expansion of distribution, warehousing, and manufacturing facilities. Approximately 25% of the workforce is employed in the fields of construction, manufacturing, transportation, communications, public utilities, and finance related services.

The Reno area is serviced by two major highways, I80 & I395/I580. Union Pacific Railroad and a number of trucking and airline carriers make it possible to ship Reno 80% of the 11 western states on a next-day basis.

Nevada has no corporate or personal income tax, and is a right-to-work state. These factors have contributed to the State's tremendous growth in the 1990's and into the 2000's. In 2005, INC Magazine ( another ranking from INC) named Reno Number 1 on its list of the "Best Places to Do Business in America," based on the job growth figures among 274 metropolitan areas.

Over 30 million dollars of City and one billion dollars in private/other public investment has been made in downtown Reno to modernize and beautify infrastructure and facilities. A maintenance district was established to ensure that the downtown area will remain clean and beautiful.  The City also established a police district to ensure a safer environment.

These are just a few fun facts and tid bits about the Reno area.
