In the past year, Las Vegas’ housing market was rising fast even though there was low availability of homes and a very high demand. Although home prices are rising at one of the fastest rates in the country, Las Vegas home builders are selling the most houses in incredible numbers and developers are opening more and more complexes constantly.Thousands of homes are started each year in masterplanned communities and all of them instantly become on high demand.

Although Las Vegas is popular for the amazing house building and designs, there are also magnificent apartment complexes and notably, the rental market in Las Vegas has also been on the increase in the past several years. Despite the fact that vacancy rate is among the lowest in the country, rents are climbing fast, so even the median sell price hits its highest levels, landlords keep buying more properties. According to some records, around 6 300 units opened this year which is a sign that developers are opening, constructing and planning attractive projects to keep up with the high demand. One of the biggest buyers in this attractive real estate market has been The Blackstone Group. Up to June this year, the New York investment giant had acquired at least nine local apartment complexes, including Solis at Flamingo.

The positive sales happening in the Las Vegas real estate market although prices are rising is a sign that something good is happening around this area that makes people invest here. For example, the influx of people coming from high cost places such as California is just one of the factors that is driving up the Las Vegas real estate market. Additionally, many people see the Sin City as a potential place to relocate or open a new business, and some of them see huge advantages in the new developments such as the NFL Stadium. Innovations like these one and the Wynn’s Paradise Park will open new job opportunities for the growing population which will make them buy a property here rather than in the high cost cities. Las Vegas is a city that manages to keep a balance among a fast-paced living and an upscale and quet lifestyle.
