If You Can’t Sell Your Las Vegas Home, Rent it!

Shelter Realty has been contacted over the last month by several Las Vegas homeowners about listing their property for rent. The message has been very similar, my home is not selling and now I just want to rent it.

The Las Vegas Real Estate Market is changing and homes are not selling as quickly as they were a year ago.  Las Vegas home prices are up over the same period from last year but homes sales are down.  With the increased real estate inventory, homes are not selling and subsequently are sitting on the market vacant for a longer period of time.  To make matters worse, we are entering the holiday season when homes sales traditionally slow down.

If you are a Las Vegas seller and your property has been on the market for sale for over 90 days, I would recommend looking into placing your home on the market for rent.  Shelter Realty manages over 600 residential properties and are vacancy rates are below 5%.  By placing a renter in your property, you can minimize out of pocket mortgage costs while you wait for the sales market to shift.
