What makes Reno so special?

Midsize cities in the U.S. are seeing a renaissance as people from large metro areas are getting sick of the hustle and bustle by putting down roots in smaller cities like Reno, Nevada. Compared to big cities, you’ll find better priced housing, improved quality of life, and business opportunities galore. What is the secret of the Biggest Little City that makes it such a great place to settle down? We have five great reasons why!

Ashley Quinn is a Nevada firm of CPAs and financial professionals with particular experience in tax planning aspects of relocation from California to Nevada.

Nevada remains one of seven states with no state income tax, which makes it even more attractive for relocation. For those coming from California, the income tax savings can amount to 13% of your taxable income. To obtain Nevada residency, an individual must make Nevada his principal place of residence, or his primary home.

So according to Ashley Quinn, what are some of the most important steps to plan for tax savings in Nevada?

The site at Plumb Lane and Virginia Street will soon become a development that is pedestrian-friendly, with live-work and multi-use spaces, a 170-room hotel and a food hall called The Market Hall.

Snow is falling in Northern Nevada and while everyone has skiing on the brain, we’re thinking about how to get you the most bang for your buck.

Spring is generally the most popular time of year when homes go on the market, but why get lost in the fray when you can beat the horde? Deciding to sell your home in the winter could reap you some cold, hard cash.

1. More serious buyers.

Not only are folks willing to brave the weather to look at homes, but you’ll avoid running into what we call looky-loos. Not everyone at your open house or touring your home intends to make a purchase. Some people are just thinking about moving and seeing what’s out there. Since so many homes pop up on the market in summer and fall, this is where we notice the most

The old Galena Lodge welcomes a trio of brand-new businesses, the perfect pit stops before or apres ski!

 

For 30+ years, the Alpine lodge on Mount Rose Highway was home to restaurants. You’ll find the quaint location just a few minutes beyond Montreux, in the Galena Forest area as the road rises towards Lake Tahoe. The Galena Forest Inn was built and opened in the lodge in 1983 by Reno culinary figures Gaudenz Derungs and Walter Zahnd. Julius Weiss, another Reno chef, bought the restaurant in 1988 and ran it for a decade before it was purchased by Craig Cunningham, another longtime local restauranteur. Later in 2005, Sierra Solitaire set up and wasn’t around for long. The Lodge at Galena followed and was open until 2013.

The top 15 most expensive Reno home sales in 2018 make quite an impressive list. Four of those 15 deals, including the Number 1 sale, had our Sullivan-Wonhof-Gore Luxury Real Estate Team at the helm.

Interestingly, many of the homes on the list were cash deals. Those buyers largely sold their out-of-state homes at a premium, putting them in a liquid position for real estate investments here in Reno. The most expensive home, a beautiful manor on Foret Circle in charming Montreux Golf & Country Club, sold for $4.9 million. This was an increase of $1.5 million from last year's top spot, as well as the highest sale ever in Montreux and the highest sales-per-square-foot since 2007. 

Seven of the most expensive homes are located in Montreux, three in
