Las Vegas Homes By Leslie Reports Strong Housing Numbers

The upward trend toward full recovery continues as the Las Vegas housing market rolls full steam ahead towards summer. In the latest numbers released by the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors (GLVAR), Vegas Realtor Leslie Hoke provides her analysis and provides helpful advice on how southern Nevada buyers and sellers can capitalize on the current trends to their advantage.
“The latest Las Vegas homes sales numbers are very encouraging. They really continue the trend of improvement we’ve been seeing for the last several months. I’m highly encouraged. It’s a great time for both buyers and sellers right now in southern Nevada,” Hoke said.
“Sales numbers are up and short sales and foreclosures are down. Basically, all the metrics that need to decrease are trending that way, and all the numbers that need to increase are heading up,” said Hoke.
“We’ve seen prices increase slightly each month. Last month prices increased 3.7% and we’re up over 10% for the year. That’s a healthy increase, but those rates do far outpace people’s salary increases. That means if you are considering buying, you should consider making offers quickly before prices continue to increase,” said Hoke.
“Conversely, sellers should price their homes correctly. I’ve seen a trend where homes are sitting on the market for too long with no offers. For April, 65.4% of all single-family homes sold in 60 days or less. Those numbers are better than March partially because sellers and realtors realized they were overvaluing their homes. The market corrected itself and things are selling faster,” said Hoke.
