2022 Year in Review – Las Vegas Housing Market Update

Year-End Summary We ended 2022 at the same median sales price of $425,000 that we ended with in December of 2021.  Besides entering what is usually the slowest time of year for the housing market, rising mortgage interest rates have caused a contraction of sales. At the same time, we know that the housing market is cyclical and that the bottom is not falling out.  This would be indicative of the median sale price being close to what it was at pre-pandemic levels. With prices leveling off and more homes available for sale, we’re seeing a more balanced market that makes

6 Kitchen Cabinet Colors That Will Never Go Out of Style

One of the most time-consuming and costly areas of the home to renovate is the kitchen, which is why it’s important to be thoughtful in your design choices when you decide to make a change. While you may tend to focus on backsplash and countertop materials, the real choice is what color to paint your kitchen cabinets. As a major focal point of the kitchen, your cabinets can make or break the space. Choosing a hue that will never go out of style, rather than opting for what’s on trend, will prevent you from wanting to change your kitchen cabinet paint color

What Happened in the Real Estate Market in August?

Over the last three months, we have seen the sales prices slowly giving back some of the major gains we experienced over the past few years.  Even though home prices have leveled off lately, they’re still up substantially from last year.  When you combine that with rising mortgage rates and inflation, its no surprise to see some potential buyers sitting on the sidelines for now.  The positive news is that buyers have more homes to choose from now.  It has been about three years since we have had this amount of available inventory for sale. Median Home Price $450,000   +11.1%

A report released by Las Vegas REALTORS® (LVR) shows local home prices dipping for the second straight month, with fewer homes selling and more available for sale. Existing local home prices are still nearly four times higher than during their post-recession bottom in January of 2012, when the median single-family home price in Southern Nevada was $118,000. But since mortgage interest rates started rising in recent months, prices have been stabilizing, fewer homes have been selling, more homes are hitting the market and more sellers are lowering their asking prices or offering concessions Median Home Price $465,000 +14.8% from July 2021
