As the economy has slowly re-opened in Las Vegas, due to certain restrictions lifted, so has the interest of buyers in the local market. This was clearly evident in June, as the median price of a home sold through the MLS was $325,000, a year over year increase of about 7%. This was an increase of $6,000 from the prior median sold price in March of $319,000.

These figures go to show a couple of things. First, as people returned to work, this ignited a demand for housing. It really shows how crucial the local hospitality and service industry is to the housing market. Even though real estate prices did not see a noticeable decrease between March and June, the slow down in activity was a clear indicator.

Second, with real estate values holding during an economic shut down, it really showed the stability of the Las Vegas housing market to be able to absorb a significant event, such as this. With prices appreciating at a modest rate, this prevents a bubble from forming and significant fluctuations from occurring when an economy shifts. No doubt, current low interest rates also play a role in keeping prospective buyers motivated and ready to buy.

As the economy continues to recover, with more tourists coming for a visit, we can expect the real estate market to keep thriving.
