Las Vegas Area Homes for Sale

Cash REMAINS KING in the Las Vegas Area Real Estate Market!!! It is important for every buyer in the Las Vegas Area Real Estate Market to understand who their buyer competition is in this currently competitive seller's market LV is enjoying! It is important to understand how a seller looks at each financing type:

Cash Offers: Generally have less contingencies and quicker close times. A cash offer may be accepted even if it is lower than a financed offer.

Conventional Financing: Less strict with lender required repairs but larger down payments and more strict credit guidelines.

FHA/VA Financing: Requires more scrutiny with lender required repairs via appraisal. In general these take longer to underwrite and close so a cash or conventional offer looks more enticing to the seller. FHA Requires the deed to be seasoned for several months so some flips bought at trustee's sales are generally out as options when competing with multiple offers!

Other: Less common and creative financing types such as Lease Options, OWC (Owner Will Carry), etc. The "other" category INCLUDES auction terms!!

Very interesting, Renee.  Your graph shows the way homebuyers purchase their Las Vegas homes - financed/cash, etc - has remained fairly consistant, despite all the "predictions" that FHA backed loans would increase dramatically.  Great report on your Las Vegas real estate market trends for financing.

Hi Renee - I just read in Forbes that Henderson is one of the safest cities in America.

That's pretty impressive in terms of all those cash transactions.  Maybe I will jump into the Vegas market again for a little place for myself.

Renee, just wanted to stop in and say hi...  and to see how things are going in your world.  I can see why you say cash is king!  A whopping 52% of your sales are in CASH...  I'd love to see if I could find stats like these for the Triangle...  But I'm fairly certain the green and purples colors in your chart would be reversed here!! :)

Knowing the Vegas market's continued vulnerability, it's surprising how many investors are still plunking down cash for real estate there. Hopefully things turn around soon.
