REALTORS® are known for helping people buy and sell real estate, but much of what a REALTOR® actually does to earn their commission happens behind the scenes. A good REALTOR® will make your real estate transaction flow smoothly through each step of the process, leaving the impression that their job is fairly simple. The fact is - that couldn't be further from the truth. Anyone who has ever lived with a REALTOR® knows how difficult their job is. If you've never spent much one-on-one time with a REALTOR®, you may not understand how different their job is from the average everyday job.

At MyRenoSparksRealEstate.com, we want to be your resource for all things real estate.  Here is what is going on in today's local market. 

Homeowners have historically remained in their homes an average of six to seven years, however in 2014, research showed that time has increased to 10 years, according to Dave Hansen, 2015 president RSAR.

A few days ago, I received a text message from one of the home buyers with whom I am currently working. She wanted to see a house that she found on the internet, so I looked up the address in our local Reno Sparks MLS, and could not find any data on it. I then put the address into Google and the first search result was a listing on Zillow.com. When I clicked the link and started to do my research in order to find out whether or not this home was still available for showing, there was no contact info on the page for the individual who listed the property for sale.
