Las Vegas Area Short Sale Homes For Sale

The absorption rate for Las Vegas Valley Area Short Sales is finally seeing movement.  Absorption is moving to the stable market territory at only 5.9 months of inventory.  Solds have FINALLY gone from hovering the 200 unit mark and near the 800 units mark.  I see improvement in this sector! Inventory has increased by +260 units.  Under Contract has decreased by -99units.    Solds have increased by +149 units.

There are many reasons for the lack of closings in this market and it is outlined in this post

That is something, so many shorts in contract. The sold part is disappointing. Do you think many are going to get to closing?

Nice jump on the solds for December. If we can keep that up, it would be nice.

Anna Banana:  YES it has gone down and I knew you would like the charts!!

Richard:  I do believe more will be closing.  It seems many have gone through the loan mod process or through state mediation and they were told short sale was their only or best options!

Christopher & Stephanie:  If we can get a 30-40 % settlement ratio, I could live with that!

Fred:  I put up one already and it's only Tuesday ;)

Michelle:  Definitely better than 200 units!

Tom:  A lot, pretty much the only inventory selection at the time!

Esko:  wouldn't that be great to get some of these buyers sold?
