Las Vegas Housing Market Update – June 2021. Welcome to the June 2021 issue of our monthly market update for Southern Nevada. In this issue we will be going over May 2021 numbers.
Overall, Las Vegas’ housing market has accelerated to its fastest pace in years with rapid sales and record prices as rock-bottom mortgage rates let people lock in lower monthly payments and stretch their budgets.
Sellers have been firmly in control as buyers shower homes with offers, often within days of being listed, and are paying over the asking price.
There were 3,189 single-family houses that sold in May, down 9.6% from April and up 87.3% from May 2020.
The median sales price of previously owned single-family homes, went from $375,000 in April to $385,000 in May, which is up 2.7% from last month and up 22.2% from the prior year.
