Las Vegas Area Real Estate Pendings Report

The Las Vegas Valley (includes Henderson & North Las Vegas) has seen some major market stabilization in the last year!  Absorption for November 2008 is a healthy 7.0 months of inventory (compare it to 22.5 months inventory in Nov/Dec 2007!)  Be warned, the market as a whole is considered a "neutral market" ~ not a buyer's market, not a seller's market.  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!

In a Little Under One Month (two months, report is late!):  Listings are up +745 units, pendings are down -379 units, closings are UP +222 units and absorption is down up slightly.  NOTE:  I was a month late in pulling these numbers.  Pendings were hovering between 7200-7300 and exceeded 7300 a couple of days in mid September.  Monthly activity for November is not available as October's statistics where one month late and pulled the same day.  Much pending inventory was burned off due to Seller Assisted Down Payment Assistance ending.  DOWN PAYMENT ASSISTANCE HAS NOT ENDED FOR FIRST TIME BUYERS, HOWEVER!!
