Relocating to Reno Nevada...
Posted 27 May 2004 - 12:56 PM
Some questions I have though are:
1) What is the housing like up there? Prices and availability. Apartments are a No... no.... Duplex's & homes or pretty much anything with a garage and parking for 2 more.
2) How is the Job market up there? I wouldnt feel comfortable working for a Casino, or McDonalds or anything... but what about other business's? Are there any large business's based out of Reno?
and 3) Hows the General living up there? Does the gambling in Reno add to the crime rate or anything crazy? I love the place, expecially closer to Tahoe and Truckee

Both are "catching up" to Reno, though.
IIRC, Drano does have some "call centers", SBC (aka Nevada Bell), comes to mind. Lots of warehouse and manufacturing too..IGT (huge slot machine manufacturer) is a biggie.

If you like trees, dont move here. If you like shade, dont move here. If you like rain... well don't move here. hehe
Our weather is quite different then yours in sac. A bit colder in the winter. It did get down to -4 this year.And we do get some snow. The summers are hot but mild compared to Sac. A few years ago we had a all time record high of 107. Hottest it's ever been. But it's a very dry climate.
Housing and apartment costs seem way to high to me. And they keep rising fast. Peoples income and housing prices don't make much sense to me? One bedroom apartments are running around $600-900 a month. Housing $225,000 on average. Yuppie parts of town would be Northwest, and southwest, and south (Galena). Pretty much the outskirts of town. Everywhere else seems to be affordable. Like where I live in the North Valleys.
Jobs….. no problem, we have a great economy. Check our local news paper for jobs and housing www.rgj.com ( Reno Gazette Journal )
We are the 2nd fastest growing city in the country which makes it kinda unnerving. Every time I see a new housing development it makes me wanna cry. Our streets and highways just can't seem to keep up. Road construction is a never-ending battle. The peoples demeanor is changing also. Northern Nevada is the truck and SUV capital of the country also. Lot's of red necks like to run you off the road.
If I could delete the people and the town, I just love the country up here. It's absolutely beautiful sometimes!!
I would stay away from Carson City if I were you. They are very protective of there town and don't take to kindly to outsiders.
Good luck dude!
Oh and watch out for those ea81’s, Reno is at 4500 feet. The altitude likes to suck the life right out of them.
