The second quarter and June monthly report on existing home sales in Washoe County by the Reno Sparks Association of Realtors, show prices continuing to climb against the backdrop of low inventory.

“We have seen year-over-year price gains for the past four years,” said William Process, 2016 RSAR president and a Realtor with HomeGate Realty of Nevada. “With demand holding firm this spring and homes selling even faster than a year ago, the notable increase in closings in recent months took a dent out of what was available for sale in June and ultimately brought down new signed contract activity.”
