Las Vegas is not known for balance. The latest arena for Vegas unbalance is our resale home inventory.
The National Association of Realtors's economists says a six month's supply of homes is a healthy market. We only have a 2.5 months supply of homes for sale, according to the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors.
What does that actually mean to you?
Buyers: It is just harder to find a home. Patience is not my strong suit but summon it up, kids. There IS a house out there for you. Don't give up!
The laws of economics say low supply should push up prices. But thankfully that hasn't happened. The median price for homes in Las Vegas in July (median means half are above and half below) was $236,000, up just $1,000 from June. Buyers, now you are getting a fair price when shopping now.
Sellers: The low inventory increases your chances of selling quickly...assuming the have priced your property appropriately. I have seen homes on the market for 200 days just this week. Guess what? They will be on the market for another 200 days because the price is too high.
The low inventory does not give you the license to overprice your property. Today buyers are smarter than ever. Don't assume they will be dumb enough to make your dream price come true.

"My partner and I hired Jake Soteros to be our real estate agent last year after deciding we wanted to invest in the ever evolving downtown Las Vegas housing market. I immediately thought of Jake, since he has been immersed in the downtown scene as a business owner, and also a resident, and definitely has his finger on the pulse! After completing two home purchases over the course of 4 months, having spent the previous 2-3 months searching for just the right properties, I can honestly say that Jake went above and beyond my expectations as a real estate professional! The process of searching for, making offers on, and navigating the contract process can be a roller coaster, to say the least, and Jake's calm and confident demeanor, and his knowledge of the market really helped us to maintain our sanity through some stressful times! And since we travel and work a lot, there were a couple of occasions when Jake acted as a stand-in when we weren't able to be present for an inspection or a repair. I have already referred a good friend that was interested in buying a property downtown to Jake, and she is really enjoying working with him, as well. After our first house closed, celebrating over Mexican food and margaritas, Jake told us that "cheesy as it may sound", he loves helping people reach their goals, and seeing them happy is really gratifying for him :) That absolutely comes through in his work! We are definitely happy, and ready to celebrate that second closing when you are, Jake!"
