Reno, Nevada Community Summary

Reno, The Biggest Little City in the World, was first incorporated in 1897, disincorporated in 1899, and then continuously incorporated since 1903. Reno came to be known when a log toll bridge was built across the Truckee River in 1859. The bridge was sold to Myron Lake, who named the bridge "lake's Crossing.

The Lake Mansion in Reno, Nevada, is a historic house that originally stood at the corner of Virginia and California Streets and is now located at 250 Court Street. It was built in 1877 by W.J. Marsh.
When the Railroad began laying tracks east from Sacramento, California to Promontory, Utah to form the first Transcontinental railroad, Lake deeded land to the railroad in exchange for a promise to build a depot at Lake's Crossing. Once the depot was established, the city of Reno officially came into being. The city was named after Major General Jesse Lee Reno, a Union officer killed in the American Civil War.

Reno has many famous natives, but Dawn Wells who is best known for her roll as Mary Ann Summers on Gilligan's Island is arguably the most famous. Although he's not a Reno native, another notable figure is Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick is an American football quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers who played college football for the University of Nevada Wolf Pack.

Reno was renowned by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of "3 Alternative Tech Startup Cities With Less Traffic [and] More housing." In 2011 and 2013, U.S. News and World Report issued its annual "best colleges" rankings and the University of Nevada, Reno ranked in the top tier of "best national universities."

Reno is located at the intersection of Interstate 80 (I-80) and U.S. Route 395 (US 395), providing an easily accessible location for residents and businesses alike. These cross roads are located in what some describe as Silicon Valley's back office. Especially with tech companies such as Microsoft, Apple, Switch and Tesla calling Reno home.

Reno has a wide variety of housing types. There are affordable townhouses under one-hundred thousand dollars and there are multi-million dollar estates in private, gated communities. There are condominiums, high-rise apartment homes, and neighborhoods in town where inventory is north of the median price point for housing. In other words most of the townhouses you will find in Reno are what would best be described as middle to upper end. There are very few affordable condo units when compared to nearby cities.

One of the real strong suites of real estate in Reno are the charming “subdivision” type neighborhoods. There are a number of quality neighborhoods in town that have been built by local craftsman, as well as some well known national builders such as Toll Brothers. The city saw tremendous growth through the late 1980′s through the early part of the 2000′s.

While housing inventory is good, the schools and central location are what keep the city in high demand. In addition to Interstate 80 and U.S. Highway 395 running through the city, a plethora of shopping opportunities does not hurt either. Often times this can be a deciding factor when people are looking to purchase here and has put Reno and Sparks at the top of there list. There is no question Reno is a great place to raise a family!
