Money Watch Q & A: Local Real Estate Market

Posted: Updated:

Northern Nevada real estate experts are encouraged by improvements to the local housing market. According to Megan Lowe, of Chase International, median home prices are up nearly 25% over the past year and experts predict another 10% growth in 2014. She says equity is also improving which is allowing more "move-up buyers" to jump back into the market. Lowe says just 3% of homes are considered underwater in Nevada and she believes lenders are increasingly more willing to work with struggling homeowners, so another influx of foreclosures is not of great concern. If a home is priced appropriately, Lowe says many houses are only on the market for a week to 10 days.
