Housing in Reno, as everywhere, has skyrocketed over the last few years. A lot of people like you are getting tired of California and moving here and driving the market higher. Our house has tripled in value since we bought it. That said, housing here is probably still a bargain compared to So. Cal.

As for business and jobs, Reno is:

" #1 of Best Places to do Business in America - Inc. Magazine
" The Best Small City in America for Small Business Dun and Bradstreet and Entrepreneur Magazine
" Among America's Top Three Booming Towns Fortune Magazine
" Among the top 150 Cities to Combine Fulfilling Job and Quality of Life Life 2.0 by Forbes
" Among the top Cities for Quality of Life and Business-Friendly Atmosphere Time Magazine
" Among the Top 10 Best Places to Live Cities Ranked and Rated

In Reno, there are NO:
" Corporate income taxes
" Personal income taxes
" Estate and/or gift taxes
" Unitary taxes
" Franchise taxes
" Inventory taxes
" Franchise taxes on income
The sales tax rate in Reno is 7.375 percent.

There are plenty of good jobs. Check this site.

Wes

They're building over 5000 homes near mine within the next few years...Come on up...Love to have ya as a neighbor.

The sales taxes here are a bit high. But I figure with no income taxes, I'm still saving money.....I do a lot of online shopping too.

Thanks for the info. I'll start researching ASAP. I thought that Nevada didn't have a sales tax. Bummer. Still better than the 8.25 I'm paying now.

BTW: Are there any military bases near Reno?

But Wes...doesn't that pi$$ you off? I've got 2200 homes going in around me, and not quite jubilant about it...if time was on my side, I'd move right now while the gettin's good!

And Eric...you've got a tad more reason to think about the sales tax rate...don't know how we did it, but we're still at 7.75%. But I've already asked Wes, and he's gonna put me in his back 40, AND shovel the snow for me! I will forever be indebted (according to his pics!).

Yeah Sean, it really ticks me off.....but around here developers rule the roost, so what's a body to do?

...And I thought I was going to teach you how to shovel snow. You gotta get yer facts straight.

Wes,
How much property do you have. Based on the size of your tractor, I'd guess at least 5 acres.

and jeez, I'll be happy to shovel the snow for both of you, as long as I get to use the tractor, and you don't mind the ATV snow course I build. Hmmmm....studded all terrains or paddles in the snow.....and the Ridge Runner, whoeee! That'll be fun.

I was looking around and there seems to be some pretty large lots (10 acres) with houses about 20 miles North of Reno. Not too expensive....

Eric,

I have just under two acres. I bought the tractor for our business in California and brought it to Nevada when we moved. Even though I do most of the snow removal here with my old Toyota PU with a snow plow (seen in pic 3), I can't bring myself to sell the old Ford.

Quads in the snow are great fun. If you haven't tried it yet, you need to. I've never tried paddles in the snow, but it does sound like something fun to try.

The area your talking about sounds like Rancho Haven. I have a friend that lives out there and he loves it. There's a lot of open BLM land there.

Wes

i'd think paddles in fluffy snow would be quite fun.
And no fair any of you guys making a play for Wes's old tractor. I saw it first.
Sounds like you guys will all be living in his neighborhood anyway, use your quads to shovel snow.

[I should have asked all those owners for their e-mail so we could have
had an "LE convoy" sometime, but reality is it wouldn't happen]

Gosh, Howie may get his wish after all. There maybe a LE convoy headed to the High Desert. Better stock the cooler Wes.

Oh man..been a long time since I've done it, but ATV'ing in snow is just a blast! One of these days, though, I'd really like to try Snowmobiling...now that looks like it'd be a hoot!
