July Market insights and Predictions

Welcome back to the blog! Today we are diving right into July’s market data recap for the RenoSparks housing market. This summer has been nothing short of exciting, and I’m thrilled to share with you all the insights and trends that emerged in the real estate landscape. Whether you’re a buyer, seller, or just curious about the market, I’ve got you covered. So, let’s get started without any further delay.

July’s Median Sales Price and Closed Sales:

In July, the median sales price for homes in Reno Sparks experienced a slight decline of 3.1%, settling at $600,000. While this decrease may not be too significant, it does raise some interesting points about the market’s overall trajectory. Closed sales also saw an 11.2% decrease, indicating a possible cooling off period, typical towards the end of the summer season. As an agent on the ground, I can’t help but notice a subtle shift in the pace of showings and offers, which may be attributed to various factors, including interest rates and market dynamics.

Market’s Response to Interest Rates:

One of the significant factors affecting the housing market is the recent hike in interest rates, which are hovering around the 7% mark. This rise has left many potential buyers grappling with affordability challenges. However, despite this, Reno Sparks continues to offer attractive opportunities for buyers. With some creative strategies and patience, finding the right home is still within reach for motivated buyers.

Time to Contract and List Price:

The median days to contract saw a substantial increase of 26.7%, reaching 19 days. Although this might seem like a large jump, it’s essential to keep in mind that properties are still selling relatively quickly. The percent of list price received decreased slightly to 98.7%, indicating that correctly priced homes are still garnering strong offers from buyers.

Median Sold Price Per Square Foot and New Listings:

The median sold price per square foot saw a minimal increase of less than 1%, reaching $324 per square foot. While this might not be a significant change, it’s worth noting as we continue to monitor market trends. On the other hand, new listings experienced a 7.5% decrease, possibly reflecting seller awareness of the challenging conditions buyers face in the current market.

Months’ Supply of Inventory:

The months’ supply of inventory rose by 13.3% from June to July, landing at 1.9 months. While this increase indicates a boost in supply, the market is still grappling with a scarcity factor, which is a national and local phenomenon. This lack of inventory is likely to continue influencing the market for the foreseeable future.

Market Predictions:

Looking ahead, the Reno Sparks housing market appears to be at an interesting juncture. As interest rates rise and prices remain relatively steady, buyers are cautiously approaching the market. Consequently, sellers may have to consider making concessions to entice potential buyers. While I don’t anticipate a dramatic shift similar to last year, it’s plausible that a short-term situation might present opportunities for buyers to secure favorable deals with less competition.

As the market continues to evolve, I’m here to keep you informed with regular updates and insights.
