"The Reno market remains a seller's market, with just four months supply of inventory," said John Graham, 2017 RSAR President and REALTOR® with Re/Max Premier Properties. "With the continued increase in pricing and projected increases in interest rates, buyers may have to look at alternatives – either in the rental market or purchasing in surrounding communities.”
