Las Vegas Area Homes for Sale

Cash REMAINS KING in the Las Vegas Area Real Estate Market!!!  It is important for every buyer in the Las Vegas Area Real Estate Market to understand who their buyer competition is in this currently competitive seller's market LV is enjoying!  It is important to understand how a seller looks at each financing type:

Cash Offers:  Generally have less contingencies and quicker close times.  A cash offer may be accepted even if it is lower than a financed offer.

Conventional Financing:  Less strict with lender required repairs but larger down payments and more strict credit guidelines.

FHA/VA Financing:  Requires more scrutiny with lender required repairs via appraisal.  In general these take longer to underwrite and close so a cash or conventional offer looks more enticing to the seller.  FHA Requires the deed to be seasoned for several months so some flips bought at trustee's sales are generally out as options when competing with multiple offers!

Other:  Less common and creative financing types such as Lease Options, OWC (Owner Will Carry), etc.  The "other" category INCLUDES auction terms!!

Renee - I couldn't agree with you more, buyer's must know their competetion, especially when their in real estate markets like ours.  My July market report was very similar to yours: 45% cash, 26% conventional & 24% FHA.

That's quite interesting that nearly 1/2 of the sales in your pie chart were cash sales. You have to love that. Quick closings, no worries about loan approvals.

Renee, I sure wish cash were king here.  You are right , however, cash is king in this market, you either have it or you don't.  Unfortunately most don't have it.  I love your graphics as usual, tells a great story as to what is happening in your area. :)

You are the Statistical Queen of Las Vegas!  70% of my transactions are conventional, what percentage is it in Summerland?

Michelle:  Soundsd like our markets are mirroring each others!

Deborah:  LOL!

Craig:  It's pretty nice.  The sales can still get choked up by seller contingencies or title issues like HOA demands but they are pretty smooth for the most part.

Debbie:  Thanks!

Leolinda:  Not 100% sure but cash sales may be higher in Summerlin due to the popularity of the area.  The more popular areas have even more cash flowing through it!
