Inventory is abundant, prices are declining, foreclosures are increasing and sellers are finally beginning to price their homes competitively for sale. These conditions create an extraordinary opportunity for you, the buyer, to get a much better deal than previously possible.
Sure, you can wait it out and try to time the bottom, but realistically we won’t really know the bottom until it has already passed. In the meantime, there are some great deals out there now that will likely turn out to be prudent long term decisions when it comes to finding your family a home. Learn More
Higher real estate values in California coupled with Baby Boomer migration trends made Nevada the fastest growing state for many years.
Though these trends have slacked off some during the current housing slowdown, we still have new businesses moving to town, a tax friendly climate, low unemployment and the largest industrial park in the United States currently under development. Long term, this is a great place to invest.

Sellers, the frenzy of 2005 is long gone. It’s time to get real. Median prices have declined. Sales activity is down. We have more homes on the market now than we’ve seen since 1999.
If you’re serious about selling, you need to put aside pride and emotion. To sell your home, you need to be the absolute best value, period. And not just in your own small neighborhood… We’re talking in all of Reno/Sparks.
Your property’s number of showings is the indicator of market acceptance on price. No showings means your price is too high. A few showings means your price is reasonable enough for buyers to look. Regular showings and no offers means your price is still too high. Lots of showings and one or more offers means you’re right on the money. It’s that simple.
A serious seller is prepared to lower the price as needed, over time, to achieve the desired result, a sale. Non serious sellers sit indefinitely on their properties waiting for mythical buyers with loads of cash who almost never materialize.
If you’re not serious about selling, please, do the market a favor and don’t bother listing. Less than 10% of homes on our market actually sell, which means that our local seller failure rate exceeds 90%. Your odds of selling are less than one in ten. Think about that before making your decision.
We deal with buyers all day long, most from out-of-town. They have absolutely no preconceived notions about our neighborhoods. They look at everything: Arrowcreek, Somersett, Double Diamond, Spanish Springs, Galena, Cold Springs, New Northwest, Caughlin Ranch…
They’ll compare the price of your 50 year-old, downtown charmer with a larger, newer resale in Wingfield Springs. Often they go newer, because moving a family cross-country is a major event. They don’t have the time or energy to spruce up your place.
To sell in this market, you need to offer the perfect house at a great deal price. Learn More
