As of March 2021, the Las Vegas real estate market is probably one of the strongest seller's markets we've had in years. Home sales and average prices are setting record highs. At the same time, interest rates are hitting record lows which is fueling the market with buyers. Inventory availability is sitting at less than 6 months, as a result, we're seeing more multiple bid offers than ever. 

Here is a summary of the real estate stats for the Las Vegas Market as of March 2021, and see Tips for Buyers in this Strong Seller's Market below.

Has anyone noticed, the housing market in Las Vegas is a bit crazy right now. Homes are selling at a ridiculous rate. We’re seeing multiple bidding like we haven’t seen in years. Inventory is extremely low, so there may be limited choice, especially in the lower price ranges.

On top of that, interest rates are at an all time low, which means owning Las Vegas real estate may be more accessible. As a result, many who have been sitting on the fence and merely dreaming of that new home or condo, are now taking the plunge.

Competition is also fierce. In addition to more first-time buyers, we’re seeing more out-of-state buyers than I can remember.

Las Vegas Market Trends for 2020

2020 was a tumultuous year for real estate in Las Vegas as we hopped on the Covid roller coaster and hung on for our lives. There were sharp declines in March of 2020, but thankfully by late summer the market started to recover, and the year ended on a high note. Interest rates were too favorable to ignore and home and condo prices continued to increase. Eventually, buyers loosened their grip and re-entered the market. Hopefully, these signs of recovery will carry us well into the new year.
