Summary: October home sales in Washoe County are the fourth highest home sales for an October in history and outpaces October 2010 by 15 percent. This is the first month where the year-over-year comparison is not influenced by the tax credit incentives, thus a positive sign that sales remain healthy. Also, we have seen only moderate fluctuations in median price for the past seven months. With the majority of new listings entering the market at the under $150,000 and a majority of sales occuring in this same price range, we are cautiously optimistic that prices are at the bottom.
