The Las Vegas real estate market may be recovering in a slow, but steady manner.  However, financed transactions are being concluded much more smoothly than in the past with conventional, FHA, and VA loans all participating.  The loan success rate is in spite of some frustratingly low appraisals!  Perhaps lenders, title professionals, and REALTORS have adapted to the new, ever changing TRID environment?  Either way, this is very welcome news! Check the charts below!

Over Pricing Update!

Many homes continue to languish in a market that witnesses over pricing of approximately 60% of the SFR available inventory.  The good news is that there are signs of this market beginning to correct that problem as some of that was squeezed out this past month and over pricing is less.  Newer inventory has been priced much closer to the market and results in opened escrows within a very few days in many cases while the older, over priced inventory simply accumulates more days on the market.  Notice the days on market in some of the communities below.

  1. Well now, 9.2% in the last 60 days…..Those are certainly signs of an evenly supplied, balanced and healthy market place…..Average at $276.5K…..Conventional loans still only in the mid thirty percentiles……The builders not going to supply anymore that maybe 7500 units this year….The apartment builders looking like they will peak at 8K-9K new units this year……… The state demographer saying Clark County will most likely have a 1.6% – 1.7% population growth……Other than those facts, everything looks great…..!!
