Most traditional markets have better seasonal selling months than others. Las Vegas does not have bitter cold or snow that may stop a potential buyer from heading out in the “elements” to buy a home. Las Vegas does have that nasty blast furnace heat in the summer that one would *think* it could stop buyers from searching for a home but that is not true!
Las Vegas real estate attracts many types of buyers: first time buyers, vacation & second home buyers, retiree buyers & investor buyers.
Spring, Summer, Winter or Fall – there is no best season to sell a house in Las Vegas.
January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November or December – there is no best month to sell a house in Las Vegas.
Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Super Bowl, Valentine’s Day, Fourth of July, Back to School, Halloween – there is no best holiday to wait to sell a house in Las Vegas after.
Take a look at this graphic:
Blue represents active listings, red represents contracted listings and green represents sales. Each line is for a month from December 2007 to December 2011. Every month there is green even during the “crappy sales months” of December 2007 through early spring 2008. That means every month there are sales – and these days the amount of sales are very healthy every month & every season so it really doesn’t matter when to sell your house. It’s only a matter of *if* you *need* to sell your house.
Any house will sell in any month if it is:
- Priced correctly for current market conditions
- Easy to show
- In good repair
- Shows well
- Marketed to target audience correctly
The Las Vegas real estate market breaks all “laws” about when to sell your house during seasons, months & holidays. Las Vegas is a 24/7/365 town with homes selling every day of the year!
