5 Las Vegas communities among top 50 in US for new-home sales

Posted by Mastura Zaini-Roberts on Tuesday, January 9th, 2018 at 6:43am.

Five Las Vegas Valley communities cracked the top 50 nationally for new-home sales last year, new reports show.

Leading the pack locally was Summerlin, where builders sold 1,052 homes, up 37 percent from 2016, according to separate reports this week from two firms, RCLCO and John Burns Real Estate Consulting.

Summerlin’s sales tally was fourth-highest in the country among U.S. master-planned communities, the firms reported.

Buyers also picked up 837 new homes in Inspirada, up 48 percent and No. 8 in the country, their reports said.

According to the firms, builders sold 456 homes in Cadence, up 36 percent; 345 in Mountain’s Edge; and 315 in Skye Canyon.

Some data differed slightly. According to RCLCO, Cadence was 22nd nationally for sales, and sales climbed 10 percent in Mountain’s Edge. For Skye Canyon, the firm did not report comparison sales figures for 2016.

According to John Burns, Cadence was 23rd nationally for sales, and sales climbed 9 percent in Mountain’s Edge and 93 percent in Skye Canyon.

Overall in Las Vegas, homebuilders’ sales totals are climbing but remain a fraction of what they were during the mid-2000s bubble and in the 1990s. But they fetched record prices last year amid rising demand, plunging inventory of previously owned homes, higher development costs and a focus on building bigger, pricier houses.

In master-planned communities, landowners draw up which sections will have homes, retail, parks and other components, and they often sell land in pieces to developers who build housing tracts and other projects.

Summerlin spans 22,500 acres along the valley’s western rim and has more than 100,000 residents. It is the largest master-planned community in Las Vegas and is being developed by The Howard Hughes Corp.

Inspirada, in Henderson on the southern edge of the valley, is being developed by builders Beazer Homes, KB Home, Pardee Homes and Toll Brothers.

Cadence, off Lake Mead Parkway east of Boulder Highway in Henderson, is being developed by The LandWell Co.

Mountain’s Edge, in the southwest valley, is being developed by Focus Property Group, and Skye Canyon, in the northwest valley, is being developed by the Olympia Cos.
