March 2020 Market Report

** Data in this report reflect market activity from February 2020 compared to the previous month and year.  Information is gathered from the Reno-Sparks Association of Realtors® (RSAR) for the Greater Reno-Sparks region via Northern Nevada Regional Multiple Listing Service (www.nnrmls.com).  Data accounts for single-family resale residences only, and excludes townhouses/condos, manufactured/modular and new construction.

Here is the market overview:

  • February 2020 Median Sales Price for single-family re-sale properties in Reno-Sparks combined dipped from $405k in January to $390k (-3.7%).  The Median Sales Price is up 4.8% from this same time last year. 

  • As seen in the chart above, # of Closed Sales at 443 increased from January by 14.4% and increased nearly 23% from last year.

  • Reno-Sparks Absorption Rate is only 1.3 MSI (Months Supply of Inventory).  What exactly does this mean?  It means that if the rate of sales continued as it did during February 2020, and if no listings were added to the market, the entire Reno-Sparks inventory would be sold out in a matter of 1.3 months.  5-6 MSI is considered a “balanced market.”  We are still very much in a Seller’s market.  See chart above.

  • Likewise, the Active Inventory at 598 is down 19% from January to February 2020 and down 41.2% from this same time last year. See chart above.

  • # New Contracts was on the rise in February 2020 (+12.3% from January 2020, and +31.1% from last year).  Will this result in a spike in March sales?  Will the trend continue with March statistics with the historic low interests rates we just experienced?  We shall see!

  • Also following the seasonal trend, February 2020 brought 11.2% more New Listings than January 2020.  505 homes were brought to the market throughout the month!  The majority of new listings in February were in the $300k-$399k range (163). See chart above.

December 2019 Market Report

** Data in this report reflect market activity from November 2019 compared to October 2019 and November 2019 compared to November 2018.  Information is gathered from the Reno-Sparks Association of Realtors® (RSAR) for the Greater Reno-Sparks region via Northern Nevada Regional Multiple Listing Service (www.nnrmls.com).  Data accounts for single-family resale residences only, and excludes townhouses/condos, manufactured/modular and new construction.

November 2019 Summary

 

  • November 2019 Median Sales Price for single-family re-sale properties in Reno-Sparks was UNCHANGED from October 2019 to November 2019  at $400,000.  The Median Sales Price is up 6% from this same time last year, and is in line with the national average.

  • The Median List Price in November 2019 was 2.2% lower than in October.  This could possibly mean that Seller’s placing their homes on the market this winter are showing signs of higher motivation.

  • “Months Supply of Inventory” (MSI) is defined as the time it would take for the current inventory to be completely sold out if sales remained at their current rate.”  But do remember that this inventory supply does not factor in NEW home construction that is offered throughout the region.  A “balanced inventory market” is about 6 MSI.  The MSI in November 2019 was 2.3.

  • What percentage of list price are most Sellers receiving?  Overall, Sellers are receiving about 98.7% of their asking price.  Below is a breakdown of the percentage of listing price received by price-range.  The graph indicates that homes priced over $1M are receiving an average of about 94% of list price, compared to the rest of the market receiving closer to 99% of list price.

  • 435 single-family stick-built homes sold in November 2019, down 22.5% from October, and down roughly 7% from November 2018.  A significant portion of sales occurred in the $300k-399k range, which is typical for Reno-Sparks.

 

  • It is taking an average of 61 days to received an accepted offer once listing on MLS.  This timeframe has increased just 1.6% from October to November 2019, but is about 11% greater than one year ago.

 

Wrapping it up…

  • Median Sales Price for Reno-Sparks combined is stable at $400k.
  • Inventory is still low, and volume is down, typical for this time of year.
  • It’s taking longer to receive an accepted offer than one year ago… an average of 6 days longer to be exact.
  • If you’re buying in the $1 Million+ price range, your chances of negotiating below asking price are greater than at a lower price point.  I can help you with that!  ; )
  • Don’t let winter scare you away from buying or selling a home.  Overall, the parties to the transaction tend to be more motivated than during other seasons.
  • If you are in need of assistance buying or selling your home, please feel free to contact me for a free marketing or purchasing consultation… I’m happy to help!  dhallerbach@intero.com or call 775-233-0682.

November 2019 Market Report

 

** Data in this report reflect market activity from October 2019 compared to September 2019 and October 2019 compared to October 2018.  Information is gathered from the Reno-Sparks Association of Realtors® (RSAR) for the Greater Reno-Sparks region via Northern Nevada Regional Multiple Listing Service (www.nnrmls.com).  Data accounts for single-family resale residences only, and excludes townhouses/condos and new construction.

  • October 2019 Median Sales Price for single-family re-sale properties in Reno-Sparks (excluding condominiums/townhouses) rose slightly by 1.3% from September 2019 to October 2019 ($395,000 to $399,995).  The Median Sales Price is up about 4% from this same time last year.

September 2019 Market Report

** Data in this report reflect market activity from August 2019 compared to July 2019 and August 2019 compared to August 2018.  Information is gathered from the Reno-Sparks Association of Realtors® (RSAR) for the Greater Reno-Sparks region via Northern Nevada Regional Multiple Listing Service (www.nnrmls.com).  Data accounts for single-family resale residences only, and excludes townhouses/condos and new construction.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • August 2019 Median Sales Price for single-family re-sale properties in Reno-Sparks (excluding condominiums/townhouses) dipped slightly by 1.5% from July 2019 to August 2019 ($405,000 to $399,000).  The Median Sales Price is up 7.6% from this same time last year.
  • # of Units Sold at 601 single-family homes held fairly steady from July to August 2019.  Unit sales are up about 5.1% from the same time last year.
  • # Days to Contract continues to increase and are up significantly from the same time last year. It is now taking an average of 34% more days to receive an accepted offer on a single family home.
  • The New Listings count was down about 4% from July 2019 and 10% higher than the same time last year.
  • Months Supply of Inventory (MSI) for August 2019 was 2.3.  “Months Supply of Inventory” is defined as the time it would take for the current inventory to be completely sold out if sales remained at their current rate.  But do remember that this inventory supply does not factor in NEW home construction that is offered throughout the region.  A “balanced inventory market” is about 6 MSI.

CONCLUSIONS:

  • How do we account for the 7.6% increase in the Reno-Sparks median sales price from the same time last year?  Check out the distribution of unit sales by price point in the graphs below.  It appears as though a slight increase in sales at the $400k-$500k price range may be the reason.

  • Sales activity continued to slow at the end of summer.  This is a typical seasonal trend, as illustrated in the graph below.  However, we experienced a 5-year low of only 353 single family homes sold in January of this year.  The number of units sold in a month peaked at 851 in June of 2017.

  • Sellers are advised to be patient.  It’s taking a bit longer to get a buyer into contract than in the spring and early summer.  However, as seen in the graph below, this is also a typical seasonal trend as well.  Competitive pricing and home preparation and maintenance are the key to selling your home most quickly.

  • Policy changes should help with the condominium market.  Last month, the National Association of Realtors announce that the Department of Housing and Urban Development is implementing changes in policy and regulations October 15, 2019 that will likely help boost condominium sales.  Currently, only 6.5% of the condo projects in the U.S. are eligible for the FHA mortgage insurance program. But the coming new policies should result in more condos available for purchase with FHA financing and have a positive impact on buying opportunities for many first-time home buyers.   For more information on the topic, click HERE for the September 2019 RSAR “To The Point” video.

August 2019 Market Report

** Data in this report reflect market activity from July 2019 compared to June 2019 and July 2019 compared to July 2018.  Information is gathered from the Reno-Sparks Association of Realtors® (RSAR) for the Greater Reno-Sparks region via Northern Nevada Regional Multiple Listing Service (www.nnrmls.com).  Data accounts for single-family resale residences only, and excludes townhouses/condos and new construction.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • July 2019 Median Sales Price for single-family re-sale properties in Reno-Sparks (excluding condominiums/townhouses) increased 1.3% from June 2019 to July 2019 ($400,000 to $405,000).  The Median Sales Price jumped 5.2% from this same time last year.
  • # of Units Sold in July 2019 increased 4.2% from the previous month to 746 units.  Unit sales are also up about 4% from the same time last year.
  • # Days to Contract continues to increase and are up significantly from the same time last year. It is now taking an average of 30% more days to receive an accepted offer on a single family home.
  • # New Listings is down 5% from June 2019 and up just 3.6% since last year.
  • Months Supply of Inventory (MSI) has increased about 6% since June 2019, and increased 10.4% since the same time last year.  This is still considered to be a “Seller’s Market.”  “Months Supply of Inventory” is defined as the time it would take for the current inventory to be completely sold out if sales remained at their current rate.  A “balanced inventory market” is about 6 MSI.

CONCLUSIONS:

  • Curious about the median sales price in Reno, apart from Sparks?  Though the median in Reno dipped 2.5% from May to June this year, it rallied 2% from June to July.  Sparks also experienced and increase of 1.6% in the median sales price in the last month.  In general, the median is up in BOTH cities 4.5-5% year-over-year.

  

  • We are seeing a slow down in activity here at the end of summer.  This is a typical seasonal phenomenon.  With buyers and potential sellers wrapping up their travels and getting their children back in school, this may account for the increase in number of “days to contract” at this time.
  • Ever wonder how buyers are making their purchases in Northern Nevada these days?  We took a look at sales by price range over the last 3 months.  Below is the breakdown of financing vs. cash purchases. Pretty interesting…

        

        

     

  • Mortgage interest rates continue to stay low.  Borrowers with good credit are seeing rates sub-4%.  Visit MortgageNewsDaily.com for today’s prevailing rates.  Though remember, that a borrower’s actual interest rate is directly related to his/her financial and credit standings, and can vary by loan program.  Need a lender?   Contact me today for an awesome local referral!

4 Reasons to Buy a Home This Summer

Here are four reasons to consider buying today instead of waiting:

1.  Prices will likely continue to rise.

CoreLogic’s latest U.S. Home Price Insights reports that home prices have appreciated by 3.7% over the last 12 months. The same report predicts that prices will continue to increase at a rate of 4.8% over the next year.

Home values will continue to appreciate. Waiting may no longer makes sense.

2.  Mortgage interest rates are projected to increase.

Freddie Mac’s Primary Mortgage Market Survey shows that interest rates for a 30-year fixed rate mortgage have started to level off around 4.3%. Most experts predict that rates will rise over the next 12 months. The Mortgage Bankers Association, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the National Association of Realtors are in unison, projecting rates will increase by this time next year.

An increase in rates will impact YOUR monthly mortgage payment. A year from now, your housing expense will increase if a mortgage is necessary to buy your next home.

3.  Either way, you are paying mortgage.

Some renters have not yet purchased a home because they are uncomfortable taking on the obligation of a mortgage. Everyone should realize that unless you are living with your parents rent-free, you are paying a mortgage – either yours or your landlord’s.

As an owner, your mortgage payment is a form of ‘forced savings’ which allows you to have equity in your home that you can tap into later in life. As a renter, you guarantee your landlord is the person with that equity.

Are you ready to put your housing cost to work for you?

4.  It’s time to move on with your life.

The ‘cost’ of a home is determined by two major components: the price of the home and the current mortgage rate. It appears that both are on the rise.

But what if they weren’t? Would you wait?

Examine the actual reason you are buying and decide if it is worth waiting. Whether you want to have a great place for your children to grow up, greater safety for your family, or you just want to have control over renovations, now could be the time to buy.

Bottom Line

If the right thing for you and your family is to purchase a home this year, buying sooner rather than later could lead to substantial savings.

4 Basic Tips for Making a Competitive Offer

So, you’ve been searching for that perfect house to call “home” and you’ve finally found it!  The price is right, and in such a competitive market, you want to make sure you make a good offer so that you can guarantee that your dream of making this house YOURS comes true!

Below are 4 steps provided by Freddie Mac to help buyers make offers, along with some additional information for your consideration:

1. Determine Your Price

“You’ve found the perfect home and you’re ready to buy. Now what? Your real estate agent will be by your side, helping you determine an offer price that is fair.”

Based on your agent’s experience and key considerations (like similar homes recently sold in the same neighborhood or the condition of the house and what you can afford), your agent will help you to determine the offer that you are going to present.

Getting pre-approved will not only show home-sellers that you are serious about buying, but it will also allow you to make your offer with confidence because you’ll know that you have already been approved for a mortgage in that amount.

2. Submit an Offer

“Once you’ve determined your price, your agent will draw up an offer, or purchase agreement, to submit to the seller’s real estate agent. This offer will include the purchase price and terms and conditions of the purchase.”

Talk with your agent to find out if there are any ways in which you can make your offer stand out in this competitive market! A licensed real estate agent who is active in the neighborhoods you are considering will be instrumental in helping you put in a solid offer.

3. Negotiate the Offer

“Oftentimes, the seller will counter the offer, typically asking for a higher purchase price or to adjust the closing date. In these cases, the seller’s agent will submit a counteroffer to your agent, detailing their desired changes, at this time, you can either accept the offer or decide if you want to counter.

Each time changes are made through a counteroffer, you or the seller have the option to accept, reject or counter it again. The contract is considered final when both parties sign the written offer.”

If your offer is approved, Freddie Mac urges you to “always get an independent home inspection, so you know the true condition of the home.” If the inspector uncovers undisclosed problems or issues, you can discuss any repairs that may need to be made with the seller or even cancel the contract altogether.

4. Act Fast

The inventory of homes listed for sale has remained well below the 6-month supply that is needed for a “normal” market. Buyer demand has continued to outpace the supply of homes for sale, causing buyers to compete with each other for their dream homes.

Make sure that as soon as you decide that you want to make an offer, you work with your agent to present it as quickly as possible.

Bottom Line

Whether buying your first home or your fifth, having a local real estate professional who is an expert in his or her market on your side is your best bet in making sure the process goes smoothly. Let’s talk about how we can make your dream of homeownership a reality!

May 2019 Market Report

** Data in this report reflect market activity from April 2019 compared to March 2019 and April 2019 compared to April 2018.  Information is gathered from the Reno-Sparks Association of Realtors® (RSAR) for the Greater Reno-Sparks region via Northern Nevada Regional Multiple Listing Service (www.nnrmls.com).  Data accounts for single-family resale residences only, and excludes townhouses/condos and new construction.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • April 2019 Median Sales Price for single-family re-sale properties (excluding condominiums/townhouses) increased 2.2% compared to March 2019.  The Median Sales Price appear stable from the same time last year, showing only a .8% increase from April 2018.
  • Unit Sales in April 2019 rose significantly from the previous month (519 compared to 443), an increase of 13.6%.  Unit sales are 5.5% greater than the same time last year.
  • # Days to Contract in April 2019 has dropped from 58 days to 45 days, a 21% decrease.  Sellers of single family residences accepting offers more quickly than we experienced during fall and winter months.  However, in April 2019, getting a property into contract still took 40% longer compared to last year, on the average.
  • # New Listings are up nearly 30% from April, an indication of typical spring action.  17.5% greater number of new listings hit the market compared to April 2018.
  • Active Inventory has improved greatly since the same time last year, increasing 33.7% to 1,012 active listings in April 2019.  However, even though Months Supply of Inventory shows an increase of 26% from last year to 1.9 MSI, we are still technically in a Seller’s Market.  “Months Supply of Inventory” is defined as the time it would take for the current inventory to be completely sold out if sales remained at their current state.  A “balanced inventory market” is about 6 MSI.

CONCLUSIONS:

  • We are seeing typical spring action in the Reno-Sparks Real Estate market… More new listings hitting the market, more units sold, fewer days to contract and an uptick in the median sales price.
  • Starting to see an increase in median sales price.  With inventory still low, and increased buyer activity and demand during the typical selling season, buyers find themselves competing against other buyers again.  This could mean an overall increase in the median sales price in our region should the trend continue.
  • Why no MAJOR increase in median sales price with inventory so low?  Remember, NEW home construction inventory is not included in this report.  With new home construction on the rise in all parts of Reno-Sparks, there is more inventory out there that factors into what we are actually experiencing.  This may be a contributing factor to the suppression of median sales price in the resale market.
  • Mortgage interest rates are still relatively low compared to the higher rates experienced last year.  This should help with affordability to a degree .
  • Market statistics do vary by neighborhood. For market data and statistics in YOUR specific neighborhood, contact me now.  I am happy to help!

STEVEN WRIGHT

SILVER LEGACY RESORT CASINO – GRAND EXPOSITION HALL
