Reno-Tahoe Market Update | October 2021

Reno-Tahoe real estate continued a strong upward trajectory throughout the 3rd quarter of 2021 despite limited supply and challenging environmental conditions attributable to wildfires in Northern California.

3516 total residential transactions lag the same period in 2020 by 15% based upon not on waning demand but rather limited supply. As the number of buyers in the local marketplace, whether investors, new residents or move-up purchases, overwhelms willing sellers, prices have exploded upwardly. The median price has risen by 17% while days on market have dropped by 23% creating brisk and competitive conditions.

Despite nearly 500 more transactions in Q3 2020, the number of sales at or above $1,000,000 has grown by 25 desensitizing a previously robust barrier in our region. While summer sales have begun their seasonal taper, activity is surging with over 1,600 pending sales making up for the weeks in August and September when smoke-filled skies made for suboptimal touring conditions. Active inventory has held steady at 2 months’ supply, a slight uptick during these challenging months but still indicative of a strong sellers’ market.
