Las Vegas Market Stats from January to March 2018

Las Vegas 2018 real estate stats

The spring home sellers market has taken off with a vengeance in Las Vegas. The average price for single-family homes has increased by 18% in the first quarter. Townhomes and condos have increased an average of 27.4%! In both cases listings are selling for an average 98.9% of the asking price.

The only downside to these encouraging stats is the supply. At the end of March there was just over 1 months of inventory on hand. This is great for sellers who are getting a quick turnaround for their properties. But there are a lot of buyers out there who would appreciate a bit more selection when they're shopping for a home.

2017 was an interesting year for real estate in Las Vegas. The market for condos, townhomes and single-family homes saw sizable increases in number of sales, prices and total dollar volume sold. The number of days properties remained on the market dropped drastically, 50% for condos and 37% for houses. So why weren't people jumping at selling their homes? Not sure, but due to the lack of sellers, the months of on-hand inventory dropped substantially as well. 

What can we learn from this? Well, if you're considering selling - prices are up, listing times are down, and selection of pre-owned homes is sparse. In otherwords - what are you waiting for!!!

For home buyers - if you're not seeing what you want due to lack of inventory, consider buying a new
