There is so much market confusion for those that may need to sell and may actually have something that they believe is non-existent such as equity. First of all we (as licensed market experts) have to be very careful when pulling comps. We cannot look at list prices and say "this is what it is". More often times than not (at this point in the game,) sale prices are going well above list prices. A market analysis currently takes a nice chunk of time for me these days. It isn't about pulling up the subdivision and saying "this is what they (6 comments)
The Las Vegas Valley (includes Henderson & North Las Vegas) has seen some major market stabilization in the last year! Absorption for January 2009 is a healthy 7.7 months of inventory (compare it to 22.5 months inventory in Nov/Dec 2007!) Some micro-markets (ie,Foreclosures Bank Owned, REO) are extreme seller's markets where there is no mercy to the buyers, multiple offers are the norm! Here is a snapshot of valley listings: (Jan/Feb 2008) All SFR, Townhome, Condo Listings: Listings (2/10/2008): 23665 Under Contract (2/10/2008): 3107 Sold January 2008: 1164 Month's Inventory: 20.3 (Feb/Mar 2008) All SFR, Townhome, Condo Listings: Listings (3/20/2008): 22,644 Under Contract (3/20/2008): 4516 Sold (9 comments)
When the Party's Over: The Hangover Begins! - 02/15/09 09:54 PM
Mayor Goodman, the Mayor of this fine fine city whom I actually love for his candid ideas and flair, thinks President Obama owes us an apology for stating: "You can't get corporate jets, you can't go take a trip to Las Vegas or go down to the Super Bowl on the taxpayer's dime." My belief: No he doesn't owe us an apology. Convention business has been going down for several reasons: Cost: Unions control convention space and what happens within the confines. You would be surprised how much it costs to put a plug in an outlet here. Corporate Credit Running (9 comments)

Las Vegas Area Inventory Getting Burned Up: Just a Heads Up - 02/15/09 07:35 PM
Las Vegas Area Inventory may drop below 20K units in as little as a couple of weeks if this keeps up. Pending units have gone up by over 1K and inventory has dropped by over 1K since my last pendings report. I don't think we have been below 20K units of active inventory since April or May 2006. We have been very busy with Las Vegas Buyers (hence the lack of blog posts recently.) Buyers are ranging from first time buyers using FHA programs (and down payment assistance programs) to All-Cash Investors. The new $8K tax credit (see your CPA for (7 comments)

The rental sector has surprisingly remained stable throughout all this market turmoil! Renters are becoming buyers finally as resale purchase prices drop and economic conditions in the valley are preventing high numbers of new incoming residents to move here.
