 Real estate trends

Admittedly, I was somewhat apprehensive pulling the stats together for the June 2020 report on Las Vegas real estate sales. But, after running the numbers, I've got every reason to be optimistic. Although sales haven't reached 2019 heights, sales for both single-family homes and condos have increased since May, and prices are also on the rise. Sellers are getting over 98% of their asking price and homes are selling quicker than ever, after an average of just 38 days on the market.

What Neighborhoods are Selling in Las Vegas & How Much

Las Vegas real estate trends

These may be some of the hardest times the Las Vegas real estate market has seen in decades, but contrary to popular belief, the market during the COVID-19 crisis has not ground to a halt. Folks still have homes to sell, and according to the stats from the last 60 days (late March to May/20), people are still buying those homes.

These are unusual times, for certain, but the industry has adapted. Now, we rely on technology more than ever to advertise Las Vegas homes for sale and provide virtual or private tours in place of open houses. Even the new construction industry is featuring virtual tours of their model homes.

Las Vegas real estate trends

The Las Vegas real estate market ended on a high note in 2019. We had a high percentage of pending sales in both single-family and condos with similarly high increases in closed sales. We're still seeing a reluctance to list, with under 3 months of inventory. Which is surprising, with sellers getting an average of 98.4% of their asking price and homes remaining on the market for just over a month.
