Reno-Sparks median home price dips slightly to $444,900 in September
RENO, Nev. — On Oct. 6, the Reno/Sparks Association of Realtors released statistics for the month of September, reporting a median price of $440,000 for an existing single-family home across greater Reno-Sparks.
That figure is slightly down, 1.1%, from August’s region-wide mark of $444,900 and up 11.4% from September 2019.
Meanwhile, RSAR’s September report showed continued strong sales volume with 680 homes sales last month, up 17.4% from last year and a 3.8% increase from August.
“This remains a robust sellers’ market as the inventory of homes for sale in Reno and Sparks is currently less than a one-month supply, while the national average is a four-month supply,” said Realtor Erika Lamb, 2020 president of the RSAR board. “Properties listed under $600,000 are in high demand, averaging less than a month on the market before going into contract.”
When looking solely at the Reno submarket (which includes North Valleys), September’s median home price came in at $461,550, an increase of 14% from September 2019 and down 1.5% from August’s record high of $469,000.
Meanwhile, the median home price in September for the Sparks submarket (including Spanish Springs) was $415,000, same as August and up 9.2% from September 2019.
Below are a few other highlights from RSAR’s September report:
- In Reno (including North Valleys), 478 homes were sold, an increase of 17.4% from last year and up 8.1% from the previous month.
