As of April 26th, only 4,594 single family homes remain listed in the Las Vegas MLS as active (not under contract) in Clark County. Our inventory is continuing to shrink as few, if any, bank foreclosures are reaching the market due to the restrictions of AB 284.
The sale of lower priced housing, in particular, is really active. This week one of our agents had an offer in on a home that had received over 70 offers within just a few days, most above list price!
The current market breakdown looks like this:
874 homes priced under $100k - including 361short sales and 225 foreclosures
1644 homes priced between $100k and $200k - including 664 short sales and 278 foreclosures
846 homes priced between $200k and $300k - including 262 short sales and 89 foreclosures
454 homes priced between $300 and $400k - including 95 short sales and 32 foreclosures
208 homes priced between $400k and $500k - including 36 short sales and 5 foreclosures
221 homes priced between $500k and $750k - including 33 short sales and 10 foreclosures
143 homes priced between $750k and $1M - including 25 short sales and 5 foreclosures
285 homes priced over 1M - including 20 short sales and 4 foreclosures
These figures tell us that about 32.5% of the available inventory homes are short sales and only about 14% are foreclosures, totaling less than 48% of the Las Vegas market inventory. All the rest, just over 52%, are "traditional" sellers, whether they are actual owner occupants or investors.
