What Reno Buyers Need to Know

The May 2017 Reno Sparks Market Report shouldn't put a damper on Buyers' hopes for owning a home.  We're still recovering from the housing bubble "burst" from the last decade.  However, many financial experts assure us that rapidly rising prices are not a case of "housing bubble 2.0".  Mortgage debt decreased 10% since the mid-2000's.  FICO scores in America, on the other hand, are currently at their highest levels since 2004.  When adjusted for inflation, prices are still below their peak.  Contact your Reno REALTOR@ to help you start looking for your next Reno home today.
