Renee, it's interesting that short sales make up 46% of the Las Vegas real estate market, but only 24% of the sales.  A lot of fall out and extended sale times probably occur in Las Vegas short sales just like they do here in the Arizona real estate market.

That is good news that the short sale market has gone to stable. The national media still picks on the Vegas market all the time. Just last week I believe there was another negative article about Vegas Real Estate in the Wall Street Journal. Thanks for information and I really like the way you do your market data presentations..

Hi Renee- I know that short sales are a big part of Las Vegas, but I personally avoid them when I can.

These are incredible short sale figures that I can't even fathom.  It will take years for the market to right itself.

Renee - excellent and well written market report for Las Vegas, NV short sales. I am glad to see it has become a balanced market and that inventory has decreased.

Wowie, 7 months worth of inventory. People here complain about homes taking a longer time on average to sell, and we have only 2.5 months worth of inventory - less in some price ranges.  Like the new profile pic!

Glad to see Las Vegas is getting a little bit more normal again. Happy selling!

Appears that it's swinging close to being a buyer's market again, being at 7.0.

The key to a good recovery is the absorption rate in the county. The faster the homes are sold the better we will get out of this recession.
