Southern Nevada home sales increase again in June

Las Vegas homeowners and would-be buyers are anxiously keeping an eye on the local real estate market. Homeowners want to see the price slide to finally come to halt as they've already lost a large chunk of equity during the last few years. Prospective buyers are trying to gauge when the time is ripe to make a move and purchase a home before values start climbing again.

The situation appears to be slowly turning favorable for both groups. As reported by the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors, or GLVAR, prices seem to be stabilizing now. In May the median single-family house price moved up a notch from the previous month and in June it slipped 4.9%, so it's bouncing along within a narrow band now. The actual median price came in at $225,000. Compared with the June of 2007 price, the drop is much wider at 26.2% and that can make anyone wonder how did that happen.

The truly positive trend that has industry observers raving is the sales volume of single-family houses. Please click on the link in the first paragraph to read the entire article.

Esko, looks like more good news for you guys.  Hopefully things will continue to go in a positive direction, and the market will be on the up swing again.

The market here in Sacramento is similar.  We are experiencing more volume in sales.  However, our prices continue to lag.  It's absolutely a wonderful opportunity for buyers.  Loads of inventory and great prices.

It's encouraging that some numbers are now positive, so we can build up on that.

Excellent buyer's market over there and here and mortgage rates are still good, too.
