Over the past five years the real estate market in the Carson Valley has been quite a roller coaster with the uncertain future of the economy, but finally it might be turning around! When you compare the number of units sold in 2012 from the past 7 years it is apparent more properties are moving, however prices are also decreasing. We are hoping that the properties in the Genoa, NV & Foothill areas of Gardnerville continue to move and prices begin to stabilize and eventually start rising in the near future. Since the election in November 2012 we have seen an influx of potential buyers for both Residential and Commercial properties in Northern Nevada especially from residents in California due to all the tax increases they are facing. With Nevada’s friendly personal & business tax climate we are hoping that we are going to have a very healthy real estate market in 2013!
