Real estate data website RealtyTrac released a report Thursday that said short sales in Nevada went up by 86% in 2012. They accounted for about one third of all Nevada home sales last year. Meanwhile, foreclosures were down 36% from 2011.
At the same time, experts say traditional sales (non-distressed properties) are on the rise in the Reno/Sparks area.
RealtyTrac reports that foreclosures and short sales combined made up about 43% of all home sales nationally in 2012.
