Las Vegas Area Homes for Sale

Cash REMAINS KING in the Las Vegas Area Real Estate Market!!!  It is important for every buyer in the Las Vegas Area Real Estate Market to understand who their buyer competition is in this currently competitive seller's market LV is enjoying!  It is important to understand how a seller looks at each financing type:

Cash Offers:  Generally have less contingencies and quicker close times.  A cash offer may be accepted even if it is lower than a financed offer.

Conventional Financing:  Less strict with lender required repairs but larger down payments and more strict credit guidelines.

FHA/VA Financing:  Requires more scrutiny with lender required repairs via appraisal.  In general these take longer to underwrite and close so a cash or conventional offer looks more enticing to the seller.  FHA Requires the deed to be seasoned for several months so some flips bought at trustee's sales are generally out as options when competing with multiple offers!

Other:  Less common and creative financing types such as Lease Options, OWC (Owner Will Carry), etc.  The "other" category INCLUDES auction terms!!

This is excellent information Renee and proof positive why Las Vegas residents can rely on you!

Renee, the information you provide on your Las Vegas real estate market is always well presented and easy to understand.  I sure wish I had your computer skills.

Such a unique report and a surprise (to me) that 50% are cash deals.  We are no where near that number.

Wow, Renee, half the transactions are cash?  I also keep seeing 'seller's' market in your reports so you're keeping that absorption rate low.  I love to read your reports because I know I can get the ACCURATE info, unlike what I hear from the national media.

Thank you all for the comments!

Barbara - can't tell you what a challenge it is to get offers accepted in this silly market!  Especially financed buyers competing with cash buyers!

It is amazing how strong and common cash is in your market

Cash is always king, except of course, compared to gold, and then it might lose. I keep waiting for the day when we trade gold bars for houses. They way our treasury keeps printing money, cash will be worthless soon.

Hi Renee - cash is definitely king, and I can imagine in the Las Vegas, NV market, investors and buyers are stronger with cash offers.

Posted by Sharon Paxson, Newport Beach Real Estate (Compass) over 7 years ago

Renee, the cash deals did surprise me. As far as our local market in New Orleans we are not seeing that trend.

Renee: We see many cash sales in the Adult Communities in Phoenix but I was floored by the amount of Cash transactions. I would venture to guess the majority of cash sales are investors.

Cash is doing well here also.  I personally have been seeing more loans go through in the last month or so.  Some of the issues have been getting just slightly better such as: appraisals, inspections, etc.

Jim:  You should win a prize because your answer is correct!  Lots of investors in our market!
