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

Rooftop Decks are Growing in Popularity

Las Vegas rooftop decks

For years, rooftop decks have been a key and popular feature of hotels, large pubs, office towers and high rises. Now they are making a big splash in newer suburban single-family homes in and close to Las Vegas.

It seems homeowners love the idea of sundowner cocktails and morning yoga on the roof of their home, and why not? It’s a fantastic addition to have a rooftop deck from where you can sit and watch the sun set slowly over the mountains.

In a community like Summerlin in Las Vegas, you can enjoy the stunning mountain and valley views from up on high. One company to that designs several homes with amazing rooftop decks is CalAtlantic, who popularized them in Sin City.

After a hot, quiet summer, September and October real estate sales in Las Vegas are through the roof! A continuing trend of low housing inventory levels means it’s a great time to sell your Las Vegas home.

September 2017 stats for Las Vegas real estate

Low Inventory

According to the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors (GLVAR) monthly report for September, there are only 1.8 months’ worth of inventory on single-family homes. Real estate agents accept that a six-month supply is deemed a normal volume for a balanced real estate market, so this is a seller’s market right now.

For this past September, there were 45% fewer homes on the Vegas market than at the same time last year.

Fewer homes on the market means Las Vegas home sellers can usually get a better return on their house
