We’re bombarded with real estate facts and statistics in the media, but have you wondered just how far your dollar really goes when purchasing a home in Reno & Sparks? With this thought in mind I plan to provide a weekly report of 5 homes that closed escrow the previous week within a specific price range. Rather than focusing on a defined area, I’m casting a net around a wide variety of neighborhoods. In the end I’m hoping to help consumers develop a reasonable opinion of value as it relates to home size, age and location. Today, let’s look at homes that closed escrow around $300,000 in and near Reno & Sparks last week.

The saying goes, "Drive 'til you can afford it" and buyers can still find newer, 1,500+ SF homes in the 300K range if they're willing to commute. If you’re crunching numbers, please keep in mind that the market times I’ve posted typically include days that the homes were in escrow (typically between 30 – 45 days). If you found this post interesting, tune in next week when I’ll be highlighting 5 homes that sold for $400,000. Finally, I would like to credit C.J. Hughes of the New York Times for this title and format. Until next week, Cheers!
