Bree Zender

Over the past several weeks, KUNR has been reporting on the affordable housing crunch in Northern Nevada and the Eastern Sierra. Today, we speak to a man whose beloved cats essentially priced him out of the Reno rental market. Reno Public Radio’s Bree Zender spoke with him about his extended search for a home for himself, his cats, and his wife.

For years after the recession, there were zero new homes built in Fernley, which was dubbed the foreclosure capital of the US. In 2017, there were more than 200. It's part of a larger trend as people start to look outside of Reno/Sparks for a place they can afford to live. Our reporter Jacob Solis spoke to an official in Fernley to find out more.

The median sales price of a single-family home in Reno is now higher than it was during the peak of the housing boom just before the Great Recession.

This surge in pricing is reminding many in the region of the thriving market of the mid-2000s, as well as the devastation the ensuing crash caused to Northern Nevada.

With housing in high demand throughout northern Nevada and eastern California, several property managers are charging higher rents to potential tenants.

But some companies are trying something different to increase value.

A new residential development has officially broken ground in Dayton, which developers say will add much-needed housing to the small town northeast of Carson City.

But rather than sell the homes at market value, builders say the price will come with a significant discount.

Housing prices continue to rise in the greater Reno-Sparks market, with new listings and sales of homes down from this time last year.

Reno Public Radio’s Noah Glick reports.

April’s median price for a home in the Reno-Sparks area was more than $323,000, up 10 percent from a year ago.

That’s according to the latest report from the Reno/Sparks Association of Realtors.
