Why Do Homebuyers Choose to Live In....Fernley, Nevada?

Located 32 miles east of Reno on Interstate 80, where 80 meets U.S. Highway 50 and U.S. Alternate 95. Our population is approximately 18,000 and the landscape is mostly desert with the mountains as a backdrop.

The town was established in the early 1900's,  we incorporated and became a city in 2001.  Since then, a lot of changes have come our way, but we still remain the family oriented small town that drew most of its current residents.

We have bright blue skies almost year-round, 4 seasons and mild winters.  An abundance of recreational opportunities and in close proximity are Pyramid Lake and Lake Lahontan and thousands of acres of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land for public use.

Affordable housing is our big draw right now.  We started 2009 as a "distressed property" area, but as home prices fell, the bargains began and we now have a great demand and homes are being snapped up quickly.

Traffic is not a issue in our town and most residents commute to Reno/Sparks for employment which is only a 30 minute drive.

We have a full time fire department and paramedic response, Lyon County serves as our law enforcement. Something is always going on in the community and we have our own Facebook page (Fernley, Nevada) that keeps the fans informed.

Our Crossroads Industrial Park is home to the some of the biggest names.

Our schools are top notch and the students excel.

We love our local shopping and restaurants.
