Las Vegas NV Area October 2008 Rental Home Report

Las Vegas Area Rental Homes

October had surprisingly high unit leased numbers for an October.  This is good news for the rental sector as summer numbers could have been better!  NOTE:  The average rental price did fall dramatically but median rates stayed stable. 

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.

Hi Renee!  Great presentation!  I finally figured out how to do the graphs, SnagIt, and watermark it in SnagIt!  WooHoo!  I haven't posted it yet as it was October's numbers but, I'll get November's shortly and you'll see a whole new look to my (a.k.a. your!) reports!

Good looking report, very impressive.  Maybe the figues were lowered in October because only the lower end rented that month.  We're coming up to the transfer months over the holidays, good luck.

Hi Renee- I agree with the others that this report looks very professional.  I'm especially encouraged that more renters are finally realizing that buying is a much better alternative to just throwing that rent money away month after month.  Hopefully our distressed market in Titusville FL will start showing similar signs.

Hey Debe that announcement could bring some ???'s that need answers for those who are not using graphs, etal.  I'm jealous ;-)

Lyn:  I haven't a clue :)
