Business Stability

Has your business been affected by these factors?

What if I told you that Northeastern Nevada appears to be resistant to such things – would you believe it?

Interestingly enough, the data appears to support just that. Northeastern Nevada has garnered relatively little attention over the years due to the glamour and popularity associated with Nevada’s flagship cities, Las Vegas and Reno. Although Northeastern Nevada still offers great options in the way of logistics, affordable land, and business climate, there are some factors that Northeastern Nevada fortunately DOES NOT offer.

Recession

In years past, other portions of Nevada, specifically the urban areas, have not fared well during recessions as their primary economic drivers were gaming/tourism and construction. The last recession was devastating to those portions of Nevada as unemployment hit a national high, housing markets crashed, and people left the state in droves. Fortunately, Northeastern Nevada has remained somewhat immune to these events and national outlets began to take notice. Have a look at what this article in the New York Times had to say, or this one from ABC.

COVID-19

Our nation is reeling from the effects of COVID-19. Here in Northeastern Nevada, we have remained largely unaffected as our population is naturally socially distanced at an average of 2 people per square mile. That is not to say we are 100% immune; however, in the 6 Nevada Counties that cover nearly half of the surface area of the state, we have had very few COVID-19 cases reported in relation to our total population. Total cases within the region account for roughly 1/10 of 1% of the population. Although not immune, we certainly seem to be resistant.

Onerous / Burdensome Regulation

Some folks may refer to us as rebels but the fact is, we prefer and advocate for local control in Northeastern Nevada. As a result, you will see a unique collection of counties who regulate based on industry and individual interests. Some of our counties offer a single layer of government that allow for rapid permitting and approvals, while some counties don’t even require permits that are standard outside of the region (i.e. Building Permits). As a result, you can theoretically begin building in one of these counties today!

Would your business thrive in a region resistant to these factors? Northeastern Nevada may be your next best decision! Just say when….
