Inventory on the Rise in the Las Vegas Valley & That's a Good Thing?

Services for Real Estate Pros with Savvy Home Pix B.1000860.LLC

How would it be a good thing?  Well we have been a seller's market with barely any sellable inventory for over a year now.

Inventory is marching upwards to 100 units a week with the expiration of the tax credit.  We are currently sitting at 9,584 units of condo/single family and townhome active listings.

If we take our average closes over the last year that = 3,892 units/month.  Six months is considered a stable market so we need about 23,000 units to go from a seller's market to a stable market.

If this pace continues, we should see a stable market in about 2.5 years or 134 weeks.

Luckily the seller's market here in Las Vegas has given us some small year over year appreciation and we will take that over depreciation any day!

The crazy thing about Las Vegas Real Estate Market Trends is that it changes and quickly.  I will definitely notify my kind readers if I am seeing quick changes :)

Renee - This is incredible information about the Las Vegas NV real estate market and I bet so many people think Vegas is a strong buyer's market.

This looks like really great news. As we have discussed before, stabilization is a great thing especially in this market.

We have a shortage of inventory here in NH.  It is very strange.  One appraiser said they hadn't seen a market like this one.  Keep us posted on the LV marke.t

I think this is a nationwide trend.  It seems that about 2/3 of buyers are climbing back up on the fence to see what happens.  It's our job to offer them a hand back down because that is where the grass is green!

Tom:  I believe our market is changing again!  Reminds me of the weather in Nebraska, LOL!

Michelle Minch:  Amen to that!

Michelle Gibson:  I can't believe how many people do not know we are a strong seller's market...still!!

Cal:  Yes sir!

Joan:  It is strange but I just keep rolling with the punches!  Best of luck to your buyers!

Llloyd:  So nice to see you in the rain!

Jim:  LOL!

Vic:  I think the tax credits and lower prices/interest rates have spurred many to jump off the fence.  Many have simply given up in our area because they can't find anything!

Don:  Thanks!

Appreciation. That's soothing music to my ears. We haven't been able to use that word in Vegas for quite some time. Many homeowners probably forgot what it even means.

Nice to hear your market is so strong.  I wouldn't have guessed that.  Have a great weekend selling homes.

Renee, this certainly runs counter to what you hear on the news and read about Nevada being one of the top foreclosure states. We are in a Buyer's market here although our inventory is down from last year.

Esko:  We have seen slight amounts of appreciation on these reports here and there but we didn't see it all align until this month :)  It's a beautiful thing, hope it just keeps continuing!

Georgina:  Thanks!

Frank & Sharon:  We are still seeing those REOs come to the market, they are just being absorbed quickly!  Thanks for stopping by!
