Ticor Washoe County Foreclosure July 2016 Trend Line bar

Commentary accompanying the report:

As you can see we have a flattening and almost decline in Foreclosure Activity. Why? Combination of many things. Property values are increasing and many homeowners are seeing equity in their homes compared to previous years. SB321 (Homeowners Bill of Rights) is still in affect creating homeowners to do foreclosure mediation and foreclosure alternatives which is causing delays on the Notices of Default. Short sales are still declining month over month according to NNRMLS stats on SFR stick built properties

July median sales price, units sold, DOM, DTC and inventory

July 2016 median price graphThe median home sales price in Reno and Sparks, Nevada continues to climb — as we’ve seen it do all year. July’s median sales price came in at $317,600 — a 1.7 percent increase over June’s median sales price of $312,250.

Year-over-year July’s median sales price is up 9.5 percent over July 2015’s median of $290,000.

Interestingly July’s median sold price per square foot (ppsf) decreased to $173.38/sq.ft. — a 1.1 percent decrease from June’s $175.37/sq.ft. Year-over-year the median sold ppsf is up 8.8 percent.

The number of houses sold in July dropped substantially to 580 units sold. That total represents a 12.1 percent decrease from the 660 houses sold in June. Year-over-year, July’s total is also down from the 648 houses sold in July 2015. Rising home prices are having an impact on the number of houses sold.

July’s median days on market (DOM) increased by three days — coming in at 64 DOM. DOM has been slowly trending upwards over the past few months.

July’s median days to contract (DTC) metric [the number of days that a property was listed on the MLS before going into contract (e.g. pending)] came in at 5 days — the same number of days observed in June.

Available inventory continues to rise. Currently 1,434 houses are listed and available for sale. This total is up 10.4 percent over the 1,299 houses available this time last month. Available inventory has been climbing every month since January of this year.

Pending home sales again pulled back from the number of pendings this time last month. Currently, there are 1,036 houses pending sales — a 3.4 percent drop from June’s pending sales.

July sales by type break out as follows:

  • REO sales: 1% – down from June’s 2%
  • Short sales: 3% – unchanged from June’s 3%
  • Equity sales: 93% – down from June’s 94%
