Sparks Home

The Sparks Real Estate Market seems to be holding steady from 2009 to 2010. The number of units sold are consistent with last years single family homes sold.

The absorption rate has halted its increase and is remaining steady for the short term. This signals that demand/supp;y realities are not changing significantly.

It is still a great time for Nevada home buyers to purchase. Home prices are low and inventory is high. Interest rates are still low and Nevada has many first time home buyer mortgage programs to choose from.

Again you have provided some great information.  I was told a few times that the sale of homes has just about halted.  Glad to know Sparks is not as bad as some of the other areas. 

Thanks again - you are the best!
