Review of Reno, Nevada

Expensive and will continue to get more expensive
Star Rating - 9/28/2020
BestPlaces is years behind current data by 5+ years. This city is becoming more and more expensive. For 2020, the median rent for a 2 bedroom apartment is $1,600. The median rent for 2 bedroom house is $2,200. Do your homework before moving here. Look at other cites that stay up to date on cost of housing, apartments, etc.

I have lived here for 5 years and this place has doubled in cost of living in the short time of being here. Why is this? The reason is that people from the bay area of CA are selling their homes and buying in Reno, NV because there is no state income tax, which is great for people who are retired or who have lots of money from the bay area and are bringing it with them to Reno. Reno cannot keep up with the high demand for houses and apartments causing the price to rise record breaking. Making this the fastest growing city in the nation. It is too costly to start a family here and there is a lack of companies that are willing to pay relatively to the cost of living.
