Prices of Vegas Condominiums Increase 26% Year-Over-Year, Breaking Record; Slight Increases Still Expected
LAS VEGAS, NV – A report released recently by Las Vegas Realtors (LVR) indicates that the cost of condominiums and townhomes in Southern Nevada have broken an all-time record, showing a whopping increase of 26 percent year-over-year.
According to the report, as of October 2021 the median price of Las Vegas condos and townhomes was approximately $236,000, which represents a 26.5 percent increase over October 2020, when that number was at $186,500.
LVR President Aldo Martinez noted that, as home prices continue to climb in Las Vegas – the median price of existing single-family homes sold in Southern Nevada during October 2021 was $410,000 – people looking for affordable lodging alternatives have been turning to condos and townhomes, which despite their own prices increases still remain cost-efficient overall.
“Our home prices are still increasing, but they’re going up more gradually. Even though we’re slowing down a bit, home prices are still rising,” Martinez said. “Buyers looking for more affordable options have been turning to condominiums and townhomes, as witnessed by the median condo price of $236,000. As we’ve been saying for some time, the rate of appreciation we’ve seen this year is great for homeowners, and the low interest rates have been great for home buyers.”
The LVR report noted that the total value of all real estate transactions conducted in Southern Nevada during October 2021 was over $1.5 billion for homes and $204 million for condos, high-rise condos and townhomes. This represents an overall increase of 13.5 percent year-over-year increase for homes of 13.5 percent, and a very impressive increase of 37 percent for condos and townhomes.
Overall, however, supply of both homes and condos remains tight, and given the overall demand – while currently beginning to show signs of cooling slightly – are nonetheless expected to continue an upward trajectory.
