Las Vegas Home Sales Increasing into Summer Months

“”One of the things I’m most encouraged by is the decline in cash buys, short sales, and foreclosure sales, but the overall increase in sales” — Leslie Hoke”
Top Realtor in Las Vegas Leslie Hoke reports local homes sales strong heading into the summer months

The latest southern Nevada real estate numbers released by Las Vegas realtor Leslie Hoke continue to show empirical evidence that the Las Vegas housing market is alive and kicking. In fact, it’s just more proof that all the hype at the beginning of the year about the rebound was justified. As major real estate players like Trulia have been shouting the praises of the Las Vegas market, the numbers have responded and continue to trend positively for the once battered state.

Award-winning Las Vegas realtor and blogger Leslie Hoke is known for keeping a pulse on the local market where she has been serving clients for a dozen years chimed in saying she is encouraged by what she’s seeing.

“One of the things I’m most encouraged by is the decline in cash buys, short sales, and foreclosure sales, but the overall increase in Las Vegas home sales. That means the market is being dictated by typical buyers and sellers, rather than investors looking to cash in. They’re still a factor around here, but their presence is diminishing. And that’s a good sign,” said Hoke.

“Prices have risen nearly 11% in the last year, but took a 3.7% uptick last month. So if you’re a buyer, it would be wise to make offers on homes you want now before prices continue to go up. Conversely, sellers should price their homes to sell and that should result on a fairly quick sale assuming all other factors involving sale-ability are on point,” Hoke continued.
