Reno Luxury Real Estate market
February sales volume did increase slightly, with another 31 resale homes sold when compared to January’s 363. February also saw a modest increase in the median sale price to $265, 000. 394 resale homes sold in February. New home sales were very strong however, and about 93 new homes closed in February. The average sales price dropped 3% mostly because of a rather poor demand in the luxury price range. Days on market also shrunk to 109 days, pointing to a strengthening market.
Distress sales are on the wane in our market with rising home prices and job stabilization. January distressed sales counted for 14% of sales. Most of the homes coming on the market now are “normal” sales.
Even though interest rates are still considered historically low, households need incomes of over $80, 000 to qualify to purchase the median priced home with a small down payment. That has created high demand for the bottom end of the area housing market.
394 resale homes were sold in February. The median sales price was $265, 000. The average sales price was $293, 551. Luxury home sales were slow in February, with only 3 homes selling for $900, 000 or more.
