Reno Market Update | February


The pulsing nature of Reno real estate remains on a solid upswing at the onset of 2018. Remarkably tight inventory combined with exiting job growth and a challenging tax environment for Californians have led some one of the region’s most significant surges.

The dearth of actively listed homes has emboldened the market’s few sellers to push pricing. The last year has shown 19.3% overall appreciation; a whopping 5.4% in the last month alone. Notably, the emerging “executive” class, homes $750,000 and above, appears to be peaking as more upper-management jobs are created in the area. January saw a mini-spike in the number of homes sold within this class at 30; the 3rd highest period in the last 12 months.

This surge, in a typically quiet time of year, can be traced to numerous factors driving the local economy. Most notably, the elements of the new tax bill eliminating deductibility of state income and property taxes have increased the already steady flow of Californians heading for Northern Nevada.
