Cash home sale

Get caught up on what's new and happening in the Las Vegas real estate market this June. 

Cash Home Sales on the Rise

It seems that cash speaks the loudest when it comes to buying Las Vegas Real estate this year. In May 2021, 31% of sold homes were purchased with cash, an increase of 15% from May 2020. Cash offers are often preferred by sellers over a buyer using financing. Sadly, this practice is putting a strain on new and middle-class home buyers who may have pre-approved loans and are ready to purchase. A good percentage of the cash buyers are coming from out of state, especially California.

Las Vegas Homes & Condos Flying Off the Shelves

Spring has sprung for these happy clients of Las Vegas Homes by Leslie who have just purchased or sold their homes, in record time. Now they can sit back, relax and enjoy their new homes in the summer months.

These houses were only on the market from 1 - 34 days, selling in record time, and in some cases over the asking price. The market is hot, low on sellers and high on buyers - if you have a Las Vegas home or condo you've been considering selling, now is the time.

SOLD after 1 DAY!

Home offer accepted

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 Homes under $300k are not remaining on the market for any substantial length of time, and

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.

The following reports feature the Las Vegas market trends for single-family homes, condos and townhomes from 2019/2020:

Real estate sold sign 

It makes a heart warm to see all those "plus signs" in our Las Vegas real estate reports for July 2020. This was a record month, especially for home sales. But what really gets me excited is that people are starting to resume their lives and getting back to a sense of normalcy. We're seeing old habits emerge such as relocating to a new home before kids start school. First time buyers have decided it's worth the risk to buy now and take advantage of the amazing interest rates. It's not a perfect world yet, but we're adapting.
