Lowest Prices Gone

by Heidi Winston

 As recently as last spring, well over 70% of the homes sold in Las Vegas were under $150,000. Today, less than 60% are under that mark and this trend shows no sign of easing.



The Big Question Facing Buyers and Sellers

by Heidi Winston

 A new year. The big question facing buyers and sellers is whether our real estate market will stabilize or continue to be over-heated. Let's review the last two years and look ahead to 2013.
The biggest real estate news was the dwindling inventory. This shortage resulted in bidding wars and buyers paying well over the appraised price.

 These shortages will continue, despite that old, worn rumor of banks dumping huge numbers of foreclosures on the market, but that is nothing more than an urban myth. It'll never happen.
As we wound our way through 2012, the number of home sales fell. This was not from a lack of demand, which remained very high, but rather from a lack of homes to buy. We can expect more of the same in 2013, pushing prices up further.



Homes Listed that Actually Sell is Up Dramatically

by Heidi Winston

The number of homes selling each month is down slightly from a year ago. However, the percentage of homes listed that actually sell is up dramatically. In addition to that, there is a much larger number of new homes being sold in southern Nevada.
As we discussed last month, another positive sign that the real estate market has turned is the precipitous decline in the number of foreclosures over the last year. The rumors that banks are "sitting on all the foreclosures" is vastly exaggerated. While mortgage holders have reduced their reliance on foreclosure in favor of short sales, they do not own a significant number of homes. As soon as they do foreclose, they list those homes in the Las Vegas MLS. If you know anyone looking to buy a foreclosure, call me at 702-277-6599. I can help navigate the peculiarities of foreclosure sales.

As We Approach the Close of 2012...

by Heidi Winston

   As we approach the close of 2012, the Las Vegas real estate market remains quite robust. We have averaged more than 3,500 sales a month. In 2011, we averaged just over 3,800 sales a month but we had more than twice as many homes offered for sale. 
   Because of this high level of demand and anemic supply, prices are moving up. We are seeing this very clearly in new homes where price increases of 15% to 20% during 2012 are not uncommon. The prices of resale homes are being pushed up by the shortages and dragged up by increasing new home prices. While the resale price increases have been somewhat modest to date, we fully expect this upward trend to continue.
