REO Financing Profile for Las Vegas Area

REO Financing Profile for Las Vegas Area

Cash is the obvious dominator with overall Las Vegas Area REO Purchases.  Cash not only dominates but CRUSHES financed purchases under $75000.  The primary reason is the stuff priced under $75000 is unhabitable and ineligible for financing or is condo ineligible for financing. 

Asset managers for REO also may choose cash offers that may be lower than financed simply because financed offers have exceeded their appraised price on the property or because there are less contingencies and they can close quicker (which takes the asset - or liability - off of their books quicker.)

Condo financing is currently a challenge in the Las Vegas Area.  Lenders want to see low investor concentration, low HOA deliquencies and no construction defect or other litigation against HOA or community.  To determine if a condo is eligible for financing, a condo certification may be ordered from the HOA (this does cost money) and have it run by an underwriter.

Great information for your market.  We're seeing a lot of cash buyers here in St George too.

I love the vertical bar graph, Renee.  Looks like cash is the golden color down there.

Renee - Wow, we have yet to have over 50% of buyer's pay cash.  Although a 6.5 million dollar home sold last month for cash only if that counted for something :)

It is surprising seeing so many cash deals!   I had more this year than ever in one year time!   You DO make some awesome graphs!

Wow, I never have seen so many cash deals in all my years in this industry!

Renee, interesting graph.  You're still fairly heavy in the lower priced sales.  But the number of cash buyers in the upper price ranges seem to be growing.

Thanks all for the wonderful comments and compliments!

I'm somewhat baffled by the cash buyers, the investors, in this uncertain market environment. Are they able to get a decent return on their money is what I'm thinking about?

Esko:  The ones that have to be playing must speculate on long term holds as they are diluting rental prices!
