We will have the ability to purchase a home in the Reno area. We don't want to live in messy area. A little country would be the best. We heard Fernley had a big flood, and some houses were also damaged in Sparks. Can someone suggest some areas that are safe for teenagers, semi-country, and not too expensive?

Maybe check out the old SW part of Reno. I don't know of many homes that have a lot land, but there are some with some decent yard space. The northwest is a nice area and they have a nice high school up there, McQueen. You can try Caughlin Ranch, kids zoned go to Reno High, but depends on how much money you have to spend!
Fernley did have a big flood, but those houses were in the flood area. I did not hear about any damages in Sparks neighborhoods from that flood. Fernley is about 25 minutes from Reno, Sparks is 5 minutes (depending of course on where you live). I am sure a realtor would be much better suited to answer these questions! Good luck

Not expensive is a little too general... but probably North Valley area... if you want to be able to afford a big plot of land at a cheaper price.

That being said big tracks of land and a small price tag are normally mutually exclusive items within most city limits. But again without details of how big and what price tag we're talking about... it's hard to get specific at all.

North Valley
Spanish Springs

are by price per square foot the best values in solid areas in the city. Of the two I strongly prefer Spanish Springs.
