You’ve decided 2019 is the year to sell your place and look for your next Las Vegas dream home. There’s just one problem, after a few years of collecting this and that, your house is filled to bursting with stuff.  Before you even think of staging your home for sale, packing up for the big move, or doing any updates, you need to declutter.

2018 was an interesting year for real estate in Las Vegas.

In 2017, the Las Vegas real estate market was in full recovery mode, climbing to heights we never predicted, and creating a robust sellers market. When the clock turned to 2018, the market started to level off, becoming more realistic and much more conducive to buyers. Home sales decreased somewhat, creating a more balanced market, and condo and townhome sales remained steady.

Las Vegas real estate across the board slowed down toward the end of 2018 with increasing home prices and predictions of interest rate hikes. This is the worst time to be sitting on the fence. If you see a home purchase in your near future, visit a bank or broker and lock in the best rate, now.
