As the old saying goes, the early bird gets the worm. But if you are a consumer using one of the national real estate sites like Zillow, Trulia, Homes.com, Redfin or Realtor.com to find a home, not only are you missing out on a gourmet breakfast, you are actually paying through the nose to go hungry!

As agents, we get requests all the time to "check out" properties that prospective clients have found on one or all of the sites above. They have just spent hours upon hours perusing the web looking for the right deal.

What the average buyer fails to realize is that these 3rd party national sites only get updated every five to seven days!

In fact the average sales price per square foot for the traditional sale was $102 per Sq.Ft. in March.

The supply of single family homes for sale in Las Vegas keeps dwindling at an alarming pace and average home prices are inching upward again. As of June 4, 2012, only 3.923 single family homes remain listed in the Las Vegas MLS as active (not under contract) in Clark County. At the end of April there were 4.594 homes actively listed, so this represents a 15% decrease in inventory and only gives the local market a 5 week supply of resale housing.

Properties selling for under $100k posted the biggest decrease in inventory as investors continue to purchase for cash as an investment.  Available foreclosures in this price range dropped over 50% as Las Vegas foreclosure filings remain stymied by AB 284.  

The current market breakdown looks like this:

"Where have all the homes gone?!" In the Las Vegas real estate market it's like the clock has suddenly been turned back to the year 2004. Within hours there are multiple offers on everything listed under $250k, often sight unseen, and most accepted contracts are going above list price. New home builders are warning real estate agents about imminent price increases.

At the beginning of November there were approximately 11,500 single family homes actively on the market that were not yet under contract. Today, less than 6 months later, there are only 5,074 active single family listings in the Las Vegas MLS. That's about a six week supply at the current rate of absorption.

This is a direct result of Assembly Bill 284, which effectively stopped the non
