Las Vegas Real Estate Blog

The first half of 2018 was a bit of a head scratcher for Las Vegas real estate. Sales were sluggish at first, then suddenly, no one could keep up. Prices increased considerably, properties started selling in record time, but as with previous months, inventory remained low. Sellers are either cautious, content to wait, or both. I'm not sure why, because this is a seller's market one could only wish for.

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.
