Las Vegas homes and luxury houses

new homes for sale

Buy Las Vegas new homes for sale: Buying new homes in Las Vegas, Henderson or North Las Vegas? New home builders are building energy Star homes, include free upgrades and interest rate buy downs to entice new home buyers. We have discussed issues to consider when buying new homes in a blog series called: Buying Las Vegas new homes for sale? Consider these issues; that discusses relevant issues like comparing new homes prices to re-sales in the immediate area and saving thousands of dollars by buying builder's standing inventory homes.

Resale homes for sale

Buy Las Vegas resale homes for sale: Las Vegas homes are currently selling for less than 55% of their value in 2006 and despite all the fear mongering by the news media, home prices have been stable on homes that are priced below $250,000 in the past 15 months. Most of homes sold are priced $100,000-$200,000. Competition is fierce for homes priced below $100,000 and sold prices are at 100% or more of asking prices.

Resale home buyers can find what they want in Greater Las Vegas, we've got it all. If you want an older home with a big yard and pool, a tract home with a medium yard or a luxurious mansion like home, we can help you find them.

Luxury homes

The main reason that the luxury homes market is slow is due to the difficulty in obtaining a JUMBO loans. The majority of luxury homes are not foreclosures or short sales. however a significant percentage of sold homes are. Our current inventory of luxury homes priced higher than 1 million dollars is 3.5 years, however good deals that would offer the buyer protection from further price drops can be found now, especially unfinished homes or those needing repair.

Las Vegas condos, lofts and townhomes

The Las Vegas condos and lofts for sale market is depressed due to the FHA rules that prevent most condos and high rise condos from being financed. Even though the Las Vegas condo market for condos price below $50,000 is good, condos that have sold for more than $500,000 are listed for less than $150,000 and are not selling, since buyers have to pay in full and in cash for these condos. See:

However there is one way to finance condos in Las Vegas, contact us and we will tell you how. Townhomes are treated as single family homes and can be financed, however the majority of townhomes are older and located in the interior of the Las Vegas Valley.

New condos, lofts for sale

Buy Las Vegas new condominiums for sale: The number of new condo projects in Las Vegas is less than 20 and many of these are left over from 2004-2007. Lack of builder or buyer financing is the reason for this. New builders have purchased unfinished projects and are finishing them now. Mira Villa luxury condos is a great example in Summerlin. There aren't any new loft projects under construction at this time.

Resale condos, lofts, townhomes

Buy Las Vegas condos and luxury condominiums for sale: The vast majority of condominiums that are listed for sale in Las Vegas, Henderson and North Las Vegas are selling as foreclosures and short sales, although traditional sales are gaining ground. It is very difficult to finance a condo here, thus cash investors who buy and rent condos can enjoy a nice cash flow.

Semi luxury mid-rise condos that are listed in the Las Vegas MLS can't be built for today's asking prices and bargains abound. The only drawback is high HOA fees. Property taxes for mid-rise condos have been slashed this year.

High rise condos for sale

Buy Las Vegas high rise condos for sale: Most of the available inventory of new condos in Las Vegas are high rise condos that were constructed in 2004-2009. The high rise real estate market is slow and painful for the builders and buyers keep waiting for additional price cuts. We no longer advise against buying high rise condos and believe that great deals can be found right now.

Condo hotels such as Signature at MGM Grand are selling 520sf Penthouse studios for less than $175,000, Trump Las Vegas is selling for about the same price. Although hotel condos are not purchased for cash flow, they have a great shot at future appreciation as these hotel condos can't be build and sold at the current prices. We track condo sales at CityCenter Las Vegas, visit for the latest in City Center condo sales at Veer Towers and Residences at Mandarin Oriental Hotel.

Sell Las Vegas home, condo

Sell Las Vegas home, condo or high rise condos: The most important factor in selling homes in the Las Vegas area is correct pricing which is arrived at by COMPS or comparables. It is a big mistake to exclude short sales and foreclosures from comparables as these are homes that Realtors are showing. However, adding a premium of 10%-15% for traditional sales is not out of bounds. For our marketing plan please see sell Las Vegas home or condominiums.

Las Vegas foreclosures

Las Vegas foreclosure homes, condos for sale: Our total inventory of foreclosures has been less than 2000 for months and homes or condos that are priced right sell for more than 100% of the asking price. Buying a foreclosure in Las Vegas is not easy since most are purchased by real estate investors who pay in cash and close escrow in less than 30 days, however we make offers on Las Vegas bank owned (Repo) homes or condos all the time and successfully close deals. Foreclosures can offer the best deals for residential real estate as well as commercial real estate, however this is not always the case and diligence should be exercised.

I am singularly responsible for crushing the myth of 25,000-35,000 shadow inventory homes in Las Vegas which I did through a series of blog posts, see:

  1. 25,000-35,000 Las Vegas shadow inventory homes, BULLSHIT, it is 6,500

Las Vegas short sales

Las Vegas short sale homes, condos for sale: One of the reasons that the mountains of foreclosures predicted by "real estate experts" didn't materialize is that banks have tried to streamline the short sales process. About 30% of homes, condos and high rise condos sold in Las Vegas are short sales and we do make offers on short sales now. However, it is important to know which lenders are easy to deal with and which to avoid.

The main reason that buyers avoid short sales is the long wait involved to get an answer and the inherent problems in the process, such as specific performance (lender can sue the owner for the difference between the selling price and loan amount) which kills deals in the last minute. Another important factor is how many loans the seller has as a second mortgage complicates the process.

Las Vegas real estate auctions

Las Vegas real estate auctions: Buying real estate at Las Vegas real estate auctions, including foreclosed or bank owned real estate auctions. We have two types of foreclosure real estate auctions.

1: Bank owned real estate auctions: Auctions real estate such as homes or condos that are already foreclosed upon and has failed to bring market prices through the Las Vegas MLS and now are being auctioned off by Auction.com (formerly REDC auction) or Hudson and Marshall among others.

2: Foreclosure real estate auctions: Trustee Sale Auction where the act of foreclosure takes place, high risk, high reward auction where the best deals for homes, condominiums and especially luxury homes and high rise condominiums can be found.
