  1. Lol this was almost 10 years ago. Now Reno is NOT a good place to live. Rent is 1000 monthly for a studio. 450k about the cheapest you will get a real property/house. Thanks Tesla, NOT. The whole city is full of homeless people over flowing from San Francisco. You can't go to the river in town without them or to a park. There's lots of jobs but no affordable housing at all. People are rude and angry for the most part. It's an overflow of California now. Most native Nevadans that can afford it have left Reno or moved south. Even Carson City sucks now. I grew up here and lived most of my life I was born in Reno in 92. I am not speaking from a 3rd person perspective at all. I've been here too long worked for so many companies and watched it turn from beautiful to a wasteland for Californians. Even a good bit of the desert and trails are closed off from all the illegal dumping from non Nevadans. All over Reno, Carson, ex..

  2. I was seriously considering retiring to Reno. I currently live in Nevada. Laughlin to be exact. I have saved for retirement. I recently was checking on the prices of homes for sale in Reno. There would be no way at this point that I could afford a decent home in a decent area of Reno. 400,000 plus. Not happening.

  3. There a lot of arguments in the comments about crime and whatnot. I grew up and currently live in Carson but I travel to Reno quite often. From my personnel experience the crime rate in certain areas is pretty jumpy. What I mean is you could be walking down one very nice cozy street, turn the corner and be at a complete hellhole, turn again and it's back to being nice and cozy. in my opinion the safest place to live would be Sparks.

  4. Don'tl ive in Reno ad whatever you do don't go to raileys markets on west 7th street they are racist market that want to cator to student employees over those whom work there with families the supervisors play favoritism and they take advantage of not having a union
