Having lived through the Las Vegas Real Estate Apocalypse (my moniker), it's hard to believe the U.S. Labor Department just ranked Nevada No. 1 in job creation in the entire nation in 2017. Finally a No. 1 in America that doesn't mention the F word (foreclosure.)


Yep, we had the top employment growth rate in America! That enviable rate was 3.3 percent or 43,800 jobs. Part of the reason was we enjoyed the lowest unemployment growth in the nation: -7.1 percent. These numbers includes both private and public sector employment.

Surprisingly, the biggest sector creating those new jobs wasprofessional business services(like moi.) That's because no new casino-resort opened last year and Nevada, and certainly Las Vegas, are diversifying. Leisure and hospitality is now just one of the games in town.


No. 2 was Oregon (2.7 percent) closely followed by Utah (2.26 percent.)


Why is this important for Las Vegas homeowners? Because you have to have a job to qualify for a mortgage loan. That means more people will be able to buy your house when you are ready to sell!

Keep it up, Las Vegas!
