Is there a real estate search site for Reno/Sparks that easily shows me all listings, with short-sale and bank-owned filters? And treats bank-owned properties just like any other (i.e. it includes all details)? A la Redfin for Las Vegas?

On Trulia for example, it's almost all short-sales. To verify short-sale status I have to use another site that has no map. For bank-owned I can only get a blurry aerial view, the street name (no number) and even that seems inaccurate (I can evaluate every house on the street using Zillow and find nothing matching the house details).

I'll definitely get a real estate agent involved at the right point, but for now I just want to see what's available, online. I'm not too interested in the short sales.

Why not interested in the short sales? Its my understanding that the majority of the properties on the market are either shorts or foreclosures

people dont want to wait on short sales and then find out months later after their money was held up that the deal did not go throgh.

some people perhaps. We're working on a short sale purchase now, however our move is by choice not circumstance (job or the like) so we have nothing making timing critical. That and we made very fair offer, from what I understand a lot of short sales get tanked due to the buyers lowballing price or asking for all sorts of concessions on part of the bank.

My buyers agent said that often the buyers on short sales try to get the bank to pay closing costs or part of them, or pay for inspections.. or what have you. This is normal (AFAIK) on regular sales, where you can negotiate with the seller directly.

In your case you may have more to consider as a SS on a condo could have outstanding association fees which you'd end up being on the hook for, although you might be able to negotiate that with the owners association.. not sure..

I'd strongly recommend getting a buyers agent if you don't already have one.
