Overview

Las Vegas Nevada Real Estate Market Overview

This information has been updated as of December 7, 2018.

There are presently 8,594 properties listed for sale, inside the valley, with 3,455 properties in escrow and with 230 of those being short sales.

2,728 properties closed escrow over the last 30 days. That is roughly 3 months inventory at the present rate of sale. The National Association regards a 5 to 6 month supply of inventory as about standard. The present inventories versus that rate of sale speaks for itself, I think. Inventories have expanded somewhat, over the last 90 days.

Foreclosure inventories are very low with only 121 currently on the market.  There are presently 124 short sales on the market. Around 2.8% of listed properties are distressed sales. This has been a shrinking figure and probably to be expected given the price increases of the last few years. Strong sales demand and shrinking inventory characterizes the present market. That, I think, is not just a local phenomena.

Prices are now just a little greater than September 2008 and show a 10.4% increase over the last 12 months. The raw data for this calculation is courtesy of the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors. What is important here is that historically, the Las Vegas area has shown around a 5% yearly increase in value. We have been roughly doubling that rate of increase over the last 20 months or so.

Snapshot of the market as of December 7, 2018 shows 6,908 free standing homes on the market. May 2009 the figure was 13,346. The rate of sales has increased substantially over the last couple of years with the inventory shrinking considerably, however the inventories seem to be growing somewhat over the last few months. Good potential news for buyers.

New construction – There are now around 300 active subdivisions. Sounds like a lot, but in 2005-2006 there were around 1,200. New homes are now approximately 25% of the market. New home sales have increased approximately 36% over 2016. A few years ago new homes sold at about the same rate as re-sales. 40% of all listed properties are represented as vacant (note that historically, this figure has been in the 41% range for the last number of years). Just over 17% are tenant occupied.
