Las Vegas Housing Market Update 2023 YEAR END REVIEW


Welcome to the January 2024 issue of our monthly market update for Southern Nevada. In this issue we will be going over December 2023 numbers and year to date numbers for 2023.


The Las Vegas Valley real estate industry had its worst year for sales since 2008. This year mortgage rates reached a more than 20-year high. But the valley is plagued by a lack of inventory and affordable housing in the post-pandemic real estate market, as many homeowners who bought with low interest rates during the pandemic, when the Fed slashed rates, are refusing to sell their homes because they are unwilling to part with their cheap monthly mortgage payments.


If we continue to have low inventory, it will keep the Las Vegas home values up.


This January will probably be the most opportune time for a buyer to get in for years, and as soon as the Fed drops those interest rates, we are most likely going to see a reverse crash. A surge in demand from buyers and hedge funds and no supply increase will most likely cause the prices to skyrocket.


Forecasters are predicting the Federal Reserve will slash the overnight funds rate sometime next year as inflation cools, which could give a boost to the market. But given the current macroeconomic climate, it’s anyone’s guess as to where the economy will actually head in 2024.



There were 1,518 single-family houses that sold in December, up 5.8% from November, but down 1% from December 2022.


The median sales price of previously owned single-family homes, dropped by $100 and went to $449,900 for December, which is up 5.9% from the prior year.


So, we started the year in 2023 at $425,000 for median price and ended at $449,900, which was a 5.9% increase year of year.


In December 2022, the median price of previously owned single-family homes was at $425,000.

In December 2021, the median price of previously owned single-family homes was at $425,000.

Market Update



While home sales in Clark County dropped in 2023 to their worst level since 2008, the luxury market was stronger. Sales of multimillion-dollar homes still declined, but not to the degree of the overall residential market. Cash buyers essentially kept the Las Vegas real estate scene from flat lining, though a lack of listings kept prices high.


There were 92 homes that sold in December for $1 million and over, compared to November’s 88 homes, 4 home increase.


The median sales price in the Luxury Market for December increased to $1,452,500 and in November that number was $1,416,288. A $36,212 increase in the median sales price.



So, for December we had a total of 1,500 new listings, which is down 23.8% from November and down 10.6% from the prior year.


There were also a total number of 3,766 single-family houses listed without offers at the end of December, which is down 13.5% from the previous month and down 39.4% from the prior year.


December 2022 there were 6,211 single-family homes listed without offers.
