What I Love About Summerlin

Having moved to Las Vegas in 2002, I chose to reside in Summerlin, a master- planned community on the western slope of the Las Vegas valley.  I enjoy Summerlin very much – the amenities, restaurants, events and shopping.

Las Vegas housing prices held steady in January at a median of $345,000, which broke the record in November and remained unchanged in December.  But, according to The Las Vegas Realtor Association, inventory remains extremely low around the valley. I believe this is in part due to Appraisers being conservative in their valuations.  A healthy market is six months of inventory (days on market before an offer is accepted) as of today, we are around 3 weeks.  The current lack of inventory makes it difficult for both realtors and home buyers. Every time you go try to show a listing

What Makes Your Property Value Increase? Key Factors To Watch.

Appreciation: The celebrated phenomenon of your home’s value increasing over time. The more your home appreciates from the purchase price, the more profit you’ll bag at resale.  Appreciation won’t passively manifest. You’ll need to maintain your home’s condition and keep tabs on your neighborhood’s development to secure a value rise.
