Las Vegas real estate market was hot this August. We have seen the most million-dollar transactions, since February 2008. We can say that Luxury market is rocking.
When we look at real estate market, we should understand that the market trends change based on price point, as I’ve shown in my previous reports. For example, in the market, homes under $250,000 are still experiencing high demand. Market also shows changes based on area and zip code as seen in graph below.
Foreclosure inventory is still shrinking with only about 4.5 percent of listed properties being a distressed sale.
Las Vegas is still a popular place for flipping. Atom Data Solutions reports indicated that Las Vegas flippers earned average $55,600 with return on investment of 35.8 percent. National average is 67,516 with return of 48.4 percent. (Prof its were estimated after the purchase price was subtracted from the sale price and doesn’t include remodeling costs.)
Homes that are ten years old and are upgraded now look quite standard. Resale is competing with new homes in the range of $250,000 and above, which are coming with more interesting floor plans, upgraded cabinets and appliances.
We are still experiencing shortage of inventory, as you will see we have less new listings and less active listings. If you are looking to sell it’s definitely a good time to re-evaluate your home price.
