Here is the March 2013 real estate update for the Las Vegas market by the corporate broker of Prudential Americana Group Realtors, Forrest Barbee. In this video, Forrest explains why short sales are declining and traditional sales are increasing, and what to expect for the near future for Las Vegas housing.
Bank owned foreclosures have pretty much leveled off, but short sales are beginning to plummet in earnest.Single family short sale closing prices were the only ones to lose ground from February. But the closing price of a traditional single family residence is up 10.5% from the previous month. In fact the average sales price per square foot for the traditional sale was $102 per Sq.Ft. in March.

The results are finally in for 2012! Below is a map of real estate appreciation throughout the Las Vegas Valley of homes sold and closed by individual zip codes.
Keep in mind that this map represents appreciation for both single family homes as well as condos. Single family homes for sale in Las Vegas appreciated quite a bit more last year than condos did. Separated out, single family housing actually appreciated almost 20% overall in Vegas during the past year. (Condo associations are still struggling with the burden of unpaid association dues from homeowners that are in foreclosure. Since the homeowner associations have to rely heavily on these dues to maintain the master development, buyers are still a bit shy about purchasing condos in the event

Well, it's the first day of 2013, and the beginning of a new year of "statistics" for the national real estate market. I thought I would start this year out by posting an article from one of my Realtor buddies in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina at the Harrelson Group. We like to confer about changing market conditions nationally on a regular basis to gauge the overall level of consumer activity and confidence in the economic recovery. I asked Greg to write about the condo market in Myrtle Beach to see if there were any similarities with the Las Vegas market since both are considered "resort destinations."
We don't need to talk about what happened to the prices of condos that were purchased between 2005 - 2009. What we need to start talking about are the
The Tonnesen Team of GreatLasVegasHomes.com would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a heartfelt "Happy Thanksgiving," and may your homes be blessed with joy. The following is something written by our wonderful Team Manager, Patty Annis, that describes how she feels about this holiday season and being home in Las Vegas.
In the words of Frank Sinatra, “It’s that time of year when the world falls in love!” And it’s a very special kind of love for me during the Holidays…. a nostalgic kind of feeling that makes me feel warm all over, which can only mean one thing ……. family is visiting from out of town!
There’s nothing truer than “absence makes the heart grow founder” when it comes to family. This is probably because I spent most of our
When my family decided to move to Las Vegas, we rented a house in a nice neighborhood. Since we didn’t know much about the area, we relied on our real estate agent’s knowledge to help us make decisions in addition to a lot of our own research. We were very fortunate to find a nice rental house in Henderson.
At first, everything was completely different than what I was used to and nothing felt like home. Every chance I had, I drove around different areas to get a feel for what “living in Las Vegas” could be. You can learn a lot about an area by going into local businesses. It is NOTHING like “The Las Vegas Strip” out here in the suburbs! After a while we finally felt settled in with new careers and that’s when I started thinking….
If you’re a Foodie or if you simply enjoy food, Las Vegas has a lot to offer! If you haven’t experienced the whole Food Truck thing, be sure to check this out: Coming up November 2 – 4 at The Silverton (just south of The Strip) is the Las Vegas Foodie Fest.
If you watched the current season of The Great Food Truck Race, you’ll be surprised to know Nonna’s Kitchenette is on the list of Food Trucks that will be at this food festival (I didn’t see Seoul Sausage on the list). Many more food trucks will be there along with a Farmer’s Market, Beer Garden, and Tequila Party Tent making this a "Must Go To Event" for me!
I’ve tried a few food trucks here in Las Vegas and I was not disappointed. They’ve come a LONG way from the “roach
Yes, Las Vegas certainly has a reputation of being pretty wild! And with the ever popular marketing slogan of “What happens in Vegas - Stays in Vegas” it certainly gives someone much to think about….. What really does go on in this town? I have lived here since October of 1984 and through these 28 years I’ve witnessed many things that shouldn’t have ever happened here let alone stayed here!
Recently one of my own personal experiences was being right smack dab in the middle of a bank robbery. That’s right - it’s the wild wild West out here in good ‘ole Las Vegas complete with our very own bank robbers. Interestingly enough they don’t wear bandanas over their faces or even brandish any pistols.
