Las Vegas Market Update – April 2011

March Soars Past February and Betters Last Year!

Single family residential (SFR) closings for March were up 31% from February and 6.6% better than March 2010. The median sales price of an SFR dipped 1.6% to $125,950.  Overall inventory continues to slowly shrink while available REO inventory remains steady at the 2800 level.  Average SFR closings prices suffered a 7.5% decline in the Northwest, but the good news is that the average closing sales price of an SFR increased nicely in some other areas, most notably in Summerlin and the Southwest!

Classic Closings rebounded nicely in March and comprised 27% of all closings!  And keep in mind that the average closing price of a Classic sale was $174,000 (SFR, CON, TWH, MAN combined) compared to $112,482 for REO closings and $138,544 for Short Sale closings.
