Las Vegas Real Estate Market Watch Conclusion: (view chart)
The holidays have affected the number of home for sale. Sellers are involved in other activities so listing numbers drop off. Buyers who are motivated are making purchases and will reap the benefits. The national average for days on market is around 90 in a healthy market. Las Vegas homes, which usually sell in less time, that are priced correctly are selling on average for just under that amount still. While the market is in correction, gains from years ago are still considerable.
