Las Vegas Luxury Home Market Sets Records Despite Ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic
LAS VEGAS, NV – According to reports, the Las Vegas luxury home market is being described as “on fire” by experts, with home sales continuing to set records despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. For example, Noel Lee, 71, the CEO of Monster Inc., recently sold his Henderson home – measuring 11,375 square feet with six bedrooms and nine bathrooms – for $7 million, the third-highest price paid for a residence in the Las Vegas valley in 2020 so far. Lee’s two-story home features two master suites, an office, game room, fitness room, wine cellar, theater, an infinity-edge pool, and a five-car garage.
The other two highest 2020 luxury home sales in Las Vegas were a MacDonald Highlands mansion owned by Paragon Gaming co-founder Diana Bennett for a whopping $11.25 million, and a Summerlin mansion located in The Ridges – a master-planned community – for $10.15 million.
In addition, 96 homes with a closing price of $1 million or higher were made in September alone, setting an all-time one month Las Vegas record. Previously, the record for homes at this price point (or higher) was 74 in May of 2019.
Overall, in September, 502 luxury homes and condos were sold in Las Vegas, representing a 16.4 percent increase over the same month in 2019, when 431 luxury homes and condos were sold. In contrast, the number of single-family homes – in all price ranges – in Southern Nevada are down 5.6 percent from 2019.
Industry experts are noting that the sales of existing luxury homes are bolstering the Las Vegas real estate market as a whole, according to reports; there are currently 160 sales pending in September of luxury homes in Las Vegas with an additional seven months of inventory to spare, further showing that the Sothern Nevada luxury sales market is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
