If you live in or near the Reno, NV area, then you’ve probably noticed the influx of people moving to our little city. And for good reason too. Not only is Reno more affordable than other populous cities nearby, but it’s also experiencing an increase of new infrastructure and offers many indoor and outdoor activities to enjoy. While there have been many misconceptions about living in Reno, we can honestly say that it is an amazing place to live, work, and grow. See for yourself why people are deciding to leave their expensive city and are choosing to live in Reno, Nevada.

Increased Pricing in Adjacent States

While Reno is staying relatively affordable, residents in adjacent cities, such as San Francisco and other other areas of California, are experiencing increasingly high costs of living. So much so that many Californians have left their expensive homes in hopes of living somewhere more sustainable. And often, that place just so happens to be Reno, Nevada. 

According to recent statistics, Reno is about 58% less expensive to live in than San Francisco overall with housing being about 73% cheaper and property taxes being 85% cheaper. And your money is guaranteed to go farther in Reno when it comes to your home’s size and property size. Most San Francisco homes consist of apartment living, whereas in Reno you’ll find more options for larger housing on larger properties.

Job Opportunities

Reno has become an epicenter for major technology companies such as Tesla, Panasonic, and Apple. And fortunately, that means there are an abundance of job opportunities for the Reno area. Considered the “New Silicon Valley,” Reno has seen an increase of bigger businesses which is bringing an influx of job opportunities for the surrounding communities. Thanks to Tesla moving into our small town, we’ve experienced a positive change in the city. For instance, the unemployment rate is down to 3.2%, which is lower than its average 5.88%. And the number of jobs created by Tesla only seems to be increasing as the company expands. Hopefully with Tesla building a home in Reno, more companies will be inclined to build here as well, giving even more jobs to locals.

Amenities and Entertainment

Another reason people have been migrating and living in Reno is due to the tremendous amount of outdoor and indoor activities and events there are to enjoy. Being just a one hour drive away from the beautiful Lake Tahoe area, there are plenty of winter and summer activities for sports enthusiasts to partake in. We have several different ski resorts for anyone to enjoy during the winter months, and summer’s can usually be spent along one of the many beaches that reside along Lake Tahoe. 

We also have casinos, restaurants, indoor trampoline parks, local events, art venues, theaters, kid friendly fun centers, and so much more. There truly is something for everyone to enjoy in the Biggest Little City of Reno, Nevada.
