Las Vegas 2018 Real Estate - A Year in Review

Posted by Las Vegas Homes By Leslie - on Tuesday, February 12th, 2019 at 10:27am.

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.
