Reno, Nevada real estate appreciation predicted to be 9.5% over the next 12 months

[Ed. Note – Thank you to the reader of this blog who passed along the following report to me.]

In its most recent VeroFORECAST, Veros Real Estate Solutions places both Reno-Sparks, Nev. and Carson City, Nev. in the top 10 highest-appreciating markets in the U.S.

VeroFORECAST: Strongest and Weakest Real Estate Market

The VeroFORECAST predicts that over the next 12 months residential home values will appreciate at +9.5 percent for both the Reno-Sparks and Carson City markets. [Btw, this prediction is more than double the prediction for the national average appreciation over the same time period.] If correct, what will prices look like a year from now?

The most recent median sale price for the Reno-Sparks’ housing market was $385,000 (as reported here). An increase of 9.5 percent would make next year’s median price $421,575.

Similarly, a 9.5 percent increase to Carson City’s current median home price of $346,000 would bring next year’s median home price to $378,870.

So, what do you think? Probable? Too high of a prediction? Not high enough? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

    9.5% might be a little high. I’m guessing maybe 5% given the implosion of the Elon Musk empire–but then again something might take its place. Also high income residents fleeing CA especially under $10K limit on SALT deductibility might be a floor.

    Over the long haul, northern Nevada prices are really not all that out of line. We bought our house in Dayton, 4/2.5, 2100 sq ft., in 2001 for $165K. We left Nevada four years ago and have been renting it out since. At the market bottom c. 2005-06 a 3/2 a couple of doors down went for $95K at foreclosure. Today the Zestimate for our house is $285K. Sound good, but over the 17 years we’ve had it that’s only a 3.3% average annual appreciation rate–masking both the craziness and the resulting crash. Again, future price levels will depend on the level of population inflow as well as a sound enough economy to provide enough jobs and income to pay them.

    Thank you for your comment, Howard. That is an interesting history on your Dayton house. Thank you for sharing.

    The new couple years will be very interesting to watch for Reno-Sparks.

    The beat goes on as it has since 2012 a strong market no end in sight. 2011/2012 was the greatest buying opportunity in Reno housing market you’re ever going to see. Out of the depression and despair came the goose that layed the golden egg.
