Southern Nevada Home Prices Keep Climbing Amid Tight Supply GLVAR Housing Statistics for July 2016

LAS VEGAS – The Greater Las Vegas Association of REALTORS® (GLVAR) reported Tuesday that Las Vegas/Southern Nevada home prices continued to rise as the local housing supply remained tight.

GLVAR reported the median price of existing single-family homes sold during July through its Multiple Listing Service (MLS) increased to $236,000. That was up 7.3 percent from $218,000 one year ago.

Meanwhile, GLVAR said the median price of local condominiums and townhomes, including high-rise condos, sold in July was $115,000, the same as last month and last year at this time.

“The local housing market is having a pretty solid summer so far,” said 2016 GLVAR President Scott Beaudry, a longtime local REALTOR®. “Home prices have been going up gradually. And although we sold fewer homes and condos in July than we did during the previous month and year, sales have been running ahead of last year’s pace. Our tight inventory might finally be slowing down our sales pace. Sales slipped the most during July for lower-priced homes. This suggests it’s getting harder for entry-level buyers to find the homes they want.”

According to GLVAR, the total number of existing local homes, condominiums and townhomes sold in July was 3,447, down from 3,815 total sales in July of 2015. Compared to the same month one year ago, 7.2 percent fewer homes, and 4.2 percent fewer condos and townhomes sold in July.

Beaudry said local home sales for the first half of 2016 had been outpacing 2015, when GLVAR reported 38,578 single-family home, condominium, townhome and high-rise condo sales. That was more than in 2014, but fewer sales than during each of the previous five years.

Even with a slight drop in sales during July, Beaudry said Southern Nevada still has less than a three-month supply of homes available for sale, when a six-month supply is considered to be a balanced market.

The total number of single-family homes listed for sale on GLVAR’s Multiple Listing Service in July was 13,217, down 3.8 percent from one year ago. GLVAR tracked a total of 2,401 condos, high-rise condos and townhomes listed for sale on its MLS in July, down 30.9 percent from one year ago.

By the end of July, GLVAR reported 7,338 single-family homes listed without any sort of offer. That’s down 1.3 percent from one year ago. For condos and townhomes, the 1,212 properties listed without offers in July represented a 48.0 percent decrease from one year ago.

As in past months, GLVAR continued to track declines in distressed sales and a corresponding increase in traditional home sales, where lenders are not controlling the transaction. In July, 5.7 percent of all local sales were short sales – when lenders allow borrowers to sell a home for less than what they owe on the mortgage. That’s down from 7.1 percent of all sales one year ago. Another 5.9 percent of all July sales were bank-owned, down from 7.7 percent one year ago.

GLVAR said 25.8 percent of all local properties sold in July were purchased with cash, compared to 27.1 percent one year ago. That cash buyer percentage has stabilized in recent months. It’s still less than half of the February 2013 peak of 59.5 percent, suggesting that cash buyers and investors remain more active in Southern Nevada than in most markets, but that their influence continues to wane.

These GLVAR statistics include activity through the end of July 2016. GLVAR distributes such statistics each month based on data collected through its MLS, which does not necessarily account for newly constructed homes sold by local builders or homes for sale by owners. Other highlights include:

  • The monthly value of local real estate transactions tracked through the MLS during July was nearly $783 million for homes and nearly $75 million for condos, high-rise condos and townhomes. Compared to one year ago, total sales volumes in July were down 1.4 percent for homes and down 25.2 percent for condos and townhomes.
  • Homes sold faster in July, when 74.9 percent of all existing local homes and 68.8 percent of all existing local condos and townhomes sold within 60 days. That compares to one year ago, when 69.4 percent of all existing local homes and 65.2 percent of all existing condos and townhomes sold within 60 days.

Las Vegas Hockey

6-22-2016-NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman announced today that Las Vegas has been awarded the 31st professional team in the NHL. This is the eighth time the NHL has expanded its list of teams. 15 teams will now be on the west coast and 16 will be on the east coast. Las Vegas Hockey just became a reality today!

Las Vegas resident and business owner Bill Foley is the man behind the idea to bring a professional sports team to the Las Vegas Valley. Over 14,000 season ticket deposits have already been received by Foley’s organization. Today’s announcement will just add more local and regional interests into this Las Vegas NHL team.

Las Vegas Hockey

The new team does not yet have an official name to it. It will also have to build a $17 million dollar training facility/training arena located in Summerlin near the intersection of the 215 Beltway and Far Hills Drive. Final approval of the training facility in Summerlin should now go through pretty easily since today’s official NHL announcement. The 105,000 square foot building will attract locals and new team players to the Summerlin area.

The facility would have two NHL-sized rinks with a capacity of 600 seats for each rink. There also will be a 20,000-square-foot locker room and training facility for the team, along with team offices, a pro shop, concessions and smaller locker rooms to accommodate youth and high school hockey games and tournaments.

Las Vegas foreclosure sales can have hidden costs

Foreclosure SignHere is an article that I was featured in a few days ago from The Las Vegas Review Journal: (Copied with permission) Las Vegas Foreclosure Sales

Las Vegas foreclosure sales can have hidden costs

BY FELICIA MELLO
RJREALESTATEVEGAS

The numbers tell the story: After years as the poster-child for the foreclosure crisis, Las Vegas’ housing market is finally stabilizing. The median home price has held steady at $220,000 for four months running, and less than 7 percent of homes sold in November were bank-owned, according to the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors. That’s down from more than 60 percent at the height of the crisis.

Nevertheless, Nevada remains the state with the fourth-highest foreclosure rate in the nation. Some investors and first-time home buyers are still tempted by visions of picking up a great deal on a distressed property. There can be hidden costs to buying a foreclosed home, however.

Here’s what local Realtors say you should know.

1. Profit margins on foreclosed homes aren’t as high as they were a few years ago when cash-rich investors flocked to the courthouse steps for auctions. “The banks are going to price them at market value,” says GLVAR President Keith Lynam. “And there’s enough buyer pressure here that even if they lowered the price, that would drive it up anyway.”

The median sale price of a bank-owned home in Southern Nevada was $165,700 in November, up 7 percent from a year ago. If you buy through an auction site such as Auction.com, be prepared to tack on a buyer’s premium of up to 5 percent of the purchase price.

2. Renovations can be costly. “Banks are required to fill out a disclosure, but they don’t really know what is wrong with the property,” says Scott Beaudry, a broker at Universal Realty who’s handled foreclosed properties for Fannie Mae. “With a homeowner, you’re going to know if the roof was fixed two years ago, or if there’re any issues here or there. It’s a safer deal.”

Beaudry says fewer disgruntled homeowners are stripping houses of appliances and fixtures than in the past, in part because banks are offering cash payments in exchange for leaving the home in good condition. But if a house has been vacant for a while, it could have a mold problem that’s difficult to diagnose without a thorough inspection, or have fallen victim to vandals. “There’s a due-diligence period of seven to 14 days and buyers need to use that to their advantage,” he says. “Get a professional inspector in there and get the pool checked, the roof checked, everything.”

3. Make sure there are no other liens on the property. Homeowners associations, utility companies, the Internal Revenue Service or even contractors might have also filed claims for unpaid bills, in addition to the mortgage holder. These should show up in a preliminary title report, so review it carefully.

4. Check that the homeowners association rules don’t bar you from using the property the way you want to. Beaudry says he’s seen buyers get into trouble when they tried to rent a home out, only to discover that the local HOA didn’t allow it. Even buyers who plan to live in the house might want the option to rent it out later if they move to a different city or expand their family. “You have to think about it now,” he says. “Go through those CC&Rs (covenants, conditions and restrictions) in detail to make sure the property is suitable for your needs.”

5. Be prepared to wait. Banks can take up to three or four weeks to approve an offer, says Michael Bondi of Urban Nest Realty. “We’re waiting on a bank to say yes when we could’ve gotten an offer (accepted) in a day or two from a traditional owner.” If you have to move within 45 days, a traditional sale might be your best bet.

6. You may have to deal with squatters — including some who have paid “rent” to scam artists. More and more Las Vegans are falling victim to rental scams, says Beaudry, in which an impostor poses as the landlord of a foreclosed property, collecting security deposits and even rent from trusting tenants. “I feel really bad for them because a lot of these people gave up $2,000 to $3,000 in fees or deposits. We Realtors have to be the bearers of bad news and say, ‘You got scammed.’ ” If you’re a buyer, Metro can tell you whether there have been reports of squatters in the home, and an experience Realtor can help negotiate a resolution.

The bottom line? Bargains still exist for buyers who do their homework, say Realtors. But whether you’re looking to purchase a house for yourself or as an investment, you can often get just as good a deal on a non-foreclosed property — with less hassle.
