"January's available active inventory was at a low of 528 available listings," said Doug McIntyre, 2018 RSAR President and REALTOR with Reno Property Management. "The declining supply of active inventory is the primary reason we are seeing increasing prices. Looking to the year ahead, with the passage of the new tax bill, Californians will be looking at Nevada as a better place to own real estate."
