Inventory in the Reno-Sparks market is at record lows. We ended 2020 with only 242 active listings of single family homes. Many buyers are really hoping that as we get past the holidays that more sellers will be listing there homes, thus making the fierce competition for homes better.

Let’s look at the inventory that has come onto the market in the first 11 days of the new year.

The message for sellers continues to be that if you are considering selling it’s a great time to list your home while we are experiencing record low inventory of available homes for sale.
