The Urban Core of West Summerlin

There are exciting things brewing in West Summerlin!  Summerlin West Urban Core Takes Shape! Howard Hughes Corporation has stated that the Summerlin West Urban Core will be the “Yin to the Yang of Downtown Summerlin.”  What does that mean? I think it means that Urban Core will be a different type of venue for Summerlin West residents and visitors.  From what we hear, its going to have an upscale shopping and dining district complete with a grocer (hmmm… Whole Foods?).  Also, to include “The Hub” – an outdoor gathering space with an area for events; much like The Green at

What happened in the real estate market in November 2022?

What happened? Local home prices are starting to look more like they did a year ago. But we’re certainly in a different place than we were last year, when prices were soaring and setting records. Of course, as we said at the time, those conditions were not sustainable. Las Vegas Realtors reported that the median price of existing single-family homes sold in Southern Nevada during November was $430,990. That’s down 2% from October, and down from the all-time record price of $482,000 in May. But, the median home price is still up 2.6% from $420,000 one year ago. So what

What happened in real estate in October 2022

It’s a great time to be a homebuyer in Las Vegas!  With 140% more homes to choose from than the same time last year, the market has become much more balanced.  Sales prices are still up over 7% from October of last year.  For homeowners who have been on the fence about making a move, now is still a good time to sell and take advantage of increased equity. So what happened in the Las Vegas Real Estate Market in October? Median Home Price $440,000  +7.3% from October 2021 Homes Sold 1,724  -44% from October 2021 Homes Without Offers 7,906

Is Listing Your Home During Holiday Season a Good Idea?

If you’re on the fence about listing your home for sale during this holiday season, don’t be. It’s a strong seller’s market. Key Points *Sellers often wait to list until spring. But this year isn’t like others. *Homeowners who want or need to sell during the 2021 holiday season probably won’t have too much competition. *Historically low interest rates have fueled the increase in buyer demand for homes. But rates are expected to rise in 2022. The holiday season is typically not peak listing time for real estate. But the current situation, namely a super-low supply of homes coupled with

Once the decision is made to sell your home, the big question is – what now? Most homeowner’s are interviewing two or three Realtors to potentially list their home.  I would say that I get hired because of the answer to their first question:  “what do you want us to do?’  I have a reputation for breaking records in communities and I think its a direct reflection of how we present and market the house.

Las Vegas Housing Prices Remain Stable but Inventory Low

Las Vegas housing prices held steady in January at a median of $345,000, which broke the record in November and remained unchanged in December.  But, according to The Las Vegas Realtor Association, inventory remains extremely low around the valley. I believe this is in part due to Appraisers being conservative in their valuations.  A healthy market is six months of inventory (days on market before an offer is accepted) as of today, we are around 3 weeks.  The current lack of inventory makes it difficult for both realtors and home buyers. Every time you go try to show a listing
