This $8M home was July’s top sale in the valley

Home in Summerlin’s ‘The Ridges’ Community is July’s Top Las Vegas Sale at $8 Million

LAS VEGAS, NV – A swanky home located in Summerlin’s high-end The Ridges master-planned community was Las Vegas’ top-priced sale in July, fetching a cool $8 million. This goes a long way to proving that while the housing market in Southern Nevada is experiencing an overall slowdown – much like the rest of the country – its luxury homes can still generate some very impressive sales figures regardless.

The home in question is located on Promontory Ridge Drive in The Ridges and is situated upon 0.54 acres; originally built in 2005, the home comes in at 12,345 square feet with six bedrooms, 7.25 baths, and a four-car garage, and has recently undergone a complete remodel with higher-end finishes.

Also, the home boasts an indoor basketball court, a gym, putting green, game room and movie theater, and the backyard has a resort-style pool/spa and outdoor kitchen.

Overall, the luxury housing market in Las Vegas is in the midst of its slowest period since January 2021 – an issue that is affecting the majority of the housing industry nationwide amid skyrocketing inflation, mortgage interest rates, and overall economic woes – but it still managed to net 105 closings on homes with values of $1 million or more in July.

Nonetheless, this number still represents a significant decrease from the 155 luxury closings in June, and the 167 luxury closings year-over-year. However, July’s figures certainly eclipse January 2021’s luxury sales figures, when just 86 luxury homes were closed on.

In addition, these are still 157 sales of homes valued at $1 million or higher currently pending – just 10 fewer then June – which experts say cements the fact that while Las Vegas luxury real estate has indeed taken a hit from the nation’s current economic turmoil, the $1 million or higher marketplace is still proving to be an overall significant money-maker.

Oscar De La Hoya

Boxing Legend Oscar De La Hoya Purchases Henderson Home for $14.6 Million in Luxury Community

LAS VEGAS, NV – The legendary Oscar De La Hoya, former professional boxing champion and current boxing promoter, has purchased a home that is currently in the process of being constructed in the luxury MacDonald Highlands community in Las Vegas’ Henderson neighborhood for an eye-opening $14.6 million.

De La Hoya, known in his boxing days as “The Golden Boy,” is now in possession of the highest-priced purchase in Las Vegas for the month of May, along with NHL Vegas Golden Knight player Alex Tuch, who was traded to the Buffalo Sabres and subsequently sold his Summerlin home for a pricey sum.

The MacDonald Highlands home purchased by De La Hoya is situated upon one acre and packs 10,460 square feet into a one-story dwelling. The home, located at 1990 South Bundy Drive, was purchased from luxury builder Blue Heron, boasts five bedrooms and an eight-car garage.

The design of De La Hoya’s new home is said to be “classic with a modern twist,” and possesses a high-end look and feel that has become the trademark of Blue Heron, according to listing agent Kristen Routh-Silberman.

“It represents another masterpiece and milestone for Blue Heron and Tyler Jones,” Routh-Silberman said. “It’s sensational and will be a showstopper once it’s complete. Blue Heron is constantly evolving and [with this home] here they are taking modern and mixing it with timeless. It’s a new look for them. It’s very refined for modern architecture. It should be a showpiece in Architectural Digest when it’s finished.”

The home features numerous amenities, including an entrance with water features and a porte-cochere – a covered entrance large enough for vehicles to pass through – in addition to panoramic views of the famed Las Vegas Strip and nearby mountain ranges.

In addition, the master bedroom is located in its own dedicated wing of the house, which also has a digital den and media room, an office, a wet bar, outdoor dining, a wine room, a lap pool, spa, fire lounges, and play areas.

Construction on the home will be completed by next spring, according to the developer.

Las Vegas Mansion of Casino Billionaire Steve Wynn

Steve Wynn’s Las Vegas “Billionaire’s Row” Mansion Sells at Discounted Price of $17.5 Million In All Cash Deal

LAS VEGAS, NV – Steven Wynn, a real estate businessman and art collector known for his involvement in the luxury casino and hotel industry, has finally sold his mammoth Las Vegas mansion for a fairly deep discount after originally listing it on the market in 2020 for $25 million.

The buyer, affluent British businessman Simon Dolan, stepped up to purchase Wynn’s opulent residence, with property records indicating that the closing price on the property – $17.5 million – was well below the initial asking price when it was first listed two years ago.

Wynn closed on the sale on June 1. Up until that point, the property had been on and off the market several times, with the asking price lowered in March 2022 to $24.5 million; this number represents 30 percent over and above what Dolan would finally end up paying for the residence.

Located at 1717 Enclave Court, the estate comes in at 15,000 square feet with six bedrooms and nine bathrooms, situated on a street that is known as “billionaire’s row” for its many mansions and high-priced properties.

The mansion, which recently benefitted from a major renovation project, features a plethora of amenities including a game room, wine closet, gilded doors, silk carpeting, a butler’s pantry, and a full wing dedicated to a live-in caretaker. There are also extensive security features, including infrared security cameras monitoring the grounds and a backup power system in case of power failure.

The all-cash deal, despite the discounted price, still qualifies as a successful transaction for Wynn; he had originally purchased the property in March 2018 for $13 million, represents a tidy profit for the businessman, even with the money he invested into renovations.

Famed magician David Copperfield owns a neighboring mansion, a 31,000-square-foot estate that he purchased in 2016 for $17.55 million, the highest price ever paid for a Las Vegas mansion at the time; due to Wynn’s estate selling for a discounted price, it failed to set a new record.

Palms Apartments Las Vegas

Las Vegas Strip-Adjacent Palms Apartments Complex Sells for $33 Million to Undisclosed Buyer

LAS VEGAS, NV – The Palms Apartments, an apartment complex adjacent to the famed Las Vegas Strip, has been sold for $33 million, via an announcement last Wednesday by the real estate agents that brokered the deal.

The 200-unit apartment building, located at 713 East Sahara Avenue, was purchased from Miami-based Florida East Coast Realty, LLC by an undisclosed buyer on May 2 via a limited liability company based out of California, according to Clark County property records.

The garden-style Palms Apartments is a two-story building that offers units ranging in size from 700 to 1,500 square feet, and offer floor plans that have up to three bedrooms and two bathrooms, according to Thomas Dean of Coldwell Banker Commercial Premier, who represented the buyer.

“This older, vintage property provided my client with a great value-add opportunity in a very hot market,” he said. “They have an extensive Capex plan and are excited to add this to their Las Vegas portfolio.”

Las Vegas has been experiencing a large number of apartment building sales in 2022; Topaz and Viridian, two large apartment communities that are located adjacent to one another on West Viking Road, were announced as having been sold earlier in May in an off-market transaction worth a total of $129.7 million.

In addition, in March the 220-unit luxury apartment complex South Beach was bought from Griffin Capital Company by San Diego real estate firm Logan Capital Advisors for $97.5 million, and Fremont9, a ritzy apartment complex located in Las Vegas’ downtown area whose constriction was funded by late entrepreneur and former Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh, sold for $80 million and will soon be christened with a new name.

And finally, Jade, a 287-unit luxury apartment complex located near the Rio in the Las Vegas Valley, sold for $124.5 million in late January.

MGM Growth Properties

VICI Properties Acquires Las Vegas’ MGM Growth Properties for $17.2 Billion; Now Owns Ten Resorts On Strip

LAS VEGAS, NV – Easily ranking as one of the largest real estate sales the Las Vegas Strip has ever seen, VICI Properties Inc. announced this week that they have completed their acquisition of Las Vegas’ MGM Growth Properties LLC for $17.2 billion, which has increased the buyer’s presence on the Strip in the form of multiple hotel resorts and casinos.

The deal, which was first announced in August 2021, results in VICI Properties acquiring a large amount of Las Vegas Boulevard-based, MGM Resorts-operated properties, including Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand, The Mirage, Park MGM, New York-New York, Luxor and Excalibur.

The acquisition also includes several other casinos located in other states, such as the MGM Grand Detroit and MGM National Harbor near Washington, D.C.

Overall, the merger will likely not result in any outward changes to the properties in question, as VICI will not be overseeing the day-to-day operations of the properties, but instead will merely be collecting rent from the management companies that do. While the deal includes VICI Properties assuming $5.7 billion of MGM’s debt, the company is also standing to receive over $1 billion in rent on an annual basis from their new acquisitions.

As a result of the purchase, VICI Properties is now one of the biggest property owners on Las Vegas Boulevard, with the firm now owning a whopping ten resorts on the Strip; this represents approximately 40,775 hotel rooms, 1.2 million square feet of casino space, and 5.9 million square feet of meeting and convention space.

“The addition of the MGP portfolio, together with the recent closing of our Venetian acquisition, elevates VICI to the top ranks of American four-wall [real estate investment trusts], making VICI a top-5 REIT by [earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization] and a top-10 REIT by enterprise value,” said VICI CEO Edward Pitoniak. “We also become the largest owner of hotel and conference real estate in America, within what we believe is the superior transparency and integrity of the Triple Net Lease model.”

44 Hawk Ridge Dr

Number of March $1 Million-Plus Luxury Homes Sales in Las Vegas Sets All-Time Record

LAS VEGAS, NV – With the luxury home market in Las Vegas going strong and showing no signs of slowing down as affluent residents from neighboring states continue to transplant themselves into the region, the number of $1 million and higher homes sales in Southern Nevada in the month of March has set an all-time record.

According to reports, there were an incredible 196 homes in Las Vegas with an asking price of $1 million and higher sold in March, with the priciest being a residence in Summerlin that sold for $11.4 million and featured a $35,000 tub in its master bedroom.

The buyer of the expensive Summerlin home – located at 44 Hawk Ridge Drive, – has chosen to remain anonymous, driving a great deal of speculation about their identity. Construction of the residence commenced in 2018 and lasted until 2021, at which time it was listed on the market for $11.9 million, eventually closing for $11.4 million according to property records from Clark County.

The two-story home features an eight-car air-conditioned garage, swimming pool and the aforementioned $35,000 tub in the master bedroom. The home measures 10,609 square feet with four bedrooms and five-and-half baths.

No buyer’s agent was used, and the mysterious buyer utilized an out-of-state attorney for the transaction.

The home was previously owned by former Red Rock Resorts president Richard Haskins, who had passed away after a July 4, 2020 water accident in Michigan; Mike and Linda Huhn then bought the residence, which was still approximately 75 percent into its construction, and sank an additional $2 million into its completion before listing it.

At one point there was speculation that the buyer of the property was then-NFL Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams, who was said to be buying a home in Summerlin after being traded to the Las Vegas Raiders. However, in a local interview, Mike Huhn said that he was unaware of who had purchased his home, and could only say that the attorney representing them was located in New York.

It would be pretty cool if [Adams] did buy it,” Huhn said. “Whoever moved in, moved in a week after we left. We’re still curious and, hopefully, we’ll find out sooner than later.”

South Beach by Logan

220-Unit Luxury Las Vegas “South Beach” Apartment Complex Sells for $97.5 Million; Impressive Return On Initial Investment

LAS VEGAS, NV – Just over three years after originally purchasing it, the owners of a prominent luxury Las Vegas apartment complex have turned around and sold the property off for a very impressive return on their initial investment.

It was announced this week by broker Cushman & Wakefield that the 220-unit South Beach was bought from Griffin Capital Company by San Diego real estate firm Logan Capital Advisors for $97.5 million. Griffin had originally purchased the complex in 2018 for $62 million, with this week’s sale representing a tidy profit of $30.5 million.

The $97.5 million sale price comes to approximately $443,182 per unit, which is twice what the average was on the market during 2021; when Griffin purchased the property in 2018, the per-unit price also was double that of the market average at the time at $281,818.

Upon the announcement of the purchase, seller Logan Capital issued a statement, touting South Beach’s “unmatched amenity package” and “excellent location” while cementing the high-end apartment complex as a leader in Las Vegas amongst discerning lifestyle renters.”

Griffin also put out a statement, noting that originally they had intended to hold onto South Beach for the foreseeable future, but the firm was presented with an “opportunity to realize outsized returns” and due to that, they decided to sell “earlier than anticipated, and with a great result.”

Located at 8920 West Russell Road, South Beach offers numerous upper-crust amenities for tenants, including poolside cabanas, a huge outdoor TV, an outdoor gym, a sand volleyball court, a sports field, a Zen garden, fitness studios, a massage and treatment room, steam and sauna rooms, and a poker room.

Apartment sales in Las Vegas have been heating up recently amid the waning days of the COVID-19, whereas they had displayed a distinct drop in changing hands while the pandemic was at its peak; in 2021, 193 complexes were sold in the region, compared with just 91 in 2020.

901 E Fremont Street

Ritzy Las Vegas “Fremont9” Apartment Complex Sells for $80 Million, to be Rebranded “Ely on Fremont”

LAS VEGAS, NV – “Fremont9,” a ritzy apartment complex located in Las Vegas’ downtown area which constriction was funded by late entrepreneur and former Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh, has been sold for $80 million and will soon be christened with a new name.

The Calida Group, an apartment developer based in Las Vegas, confirmed that they purchased the 232-unit Fremont9 complex – which was 90.5 percent occupied on the day the deal went down – and news of the sale already has the property “trending upwards,” according to Calida co-founder Doug Eisner.

Fremont9 – which is located at 901 Fremont Street at the corner of Fremont and Ninth – will be officially rebranded within the next few months as “Ely on Fremont,” Eisner revealed.

When it originally opened in 2018, Fremont9 was the first new, large-scale apartment complex on Fremont Street in a number of years, and is part of a development trend concentrating on Southern Nevada urban-area rental facilities to address housing demand.

The sales price of Fremont9 equates to approximately $344,828 per apartment unit; in 2021, the average per-unit sales price of apartment buildings in the region was $215,151.

Eisner noted that part of the attraction to the purchase of Fremont9 was younger tenants who are “hyper-social” and are looking for apartments close to the many entertainment and restaurants options afforded by the Las Vegas Strip.

During the worst of COVID-19, renters tended to favor suburban rental properties in order to avoid densely-populated areas, but as the pandemic wanes, more and more people are once again looking for rentals amid the hustle and bustle of the city, Eisner said.

The five-story Fremont9 offers numerous amenities for tenants, including a clubroom lounge with billiards, outdoor courtyards with bocce ball and fire pits, a yoga and spin studio, a media lounge and more; in addition, Eisner said that there is also unrented ground-floor retail space that is being converted into live-work units.

Gene Simmons

Kiss Rocker Gene Simmons Sells Henderson Mansion for Healthy Profit After Discounting Price

LAS VEGAS, NV – Gene Simmons, widely known bassist for the legendary rock band Kiss, has sold his Vegas area mansion after he first listed it on the market in October 2021, a mere six months after originally purchasing it.

Simmons’ luxurious home – located at 7 Talus Court in Henderson – is currently under contract, reports say. He had first listed it for $15 million, but then dropped the price to $13.5 million one month later. He also announced earlier in February that he was even willing to take certain types of cryptocurrency – such as Bitcoin – in exchange for the home.

The 72 year-old rocker had originally purchased the mansion in May 2021 for $8.2 million, in addition to an adjacent .48-acre parcel of land for $2.6 million, for a total of $10.8 million. However, he only resided there for several months before going on tour, leaving the home empty.

Simmons’ mansion is a two-story, six-bedroom, 10,871 square-foot residence with six full baths, two half-baths, a pool, 3,963 square feet on the first floor, 3,882 on the second floor, a finished 3,026 square-foot basement and 2,284 square-foot basement garage.

The home is situated on nearly a full acre of land, including a “little forest” of over 130 trees that Simmons had planted on approximately a half-acre he said set him back $1 million.

When asked why he was selling it, he stated in an interview that his family was “not fans of 115-degree weather,” adding “how many houses do you need anyway?”

Known by the alias “The Demon” when rocking out on-stage, Simmons also noted in a separate interview that he was leaving his long-time home in Los Angeles for a 12,000 square-foot mansion in Lake Tahoe; he cited the need for a “quieter life” and the fact that California had become “inhabitable” due to its high tax rates.

3150 W Twain Avenue Las Vegas, Nevada 89103

Jade, Las Vegas-Based 287-Unit Luxury Apartment Complex, Sells for Almost $125 Million

LAS VEGAS, NV – Jade, a new 287-unit luxury apartment complex located near the Rio in the Las Vegas Valley, has recently sold for an incredible price, once again highlighting the strong desire that landlords and property management firms are expressing for rental units in Southern Nevada.

Ideal Capital Group, a real estate firm based out of Clovis, California, reported that they have acquired Jade for $124.5 million from developer Jonathan Fore last month; the sale price represents approximately $433,798 per unit, which experts say is much, much higher than average for an apartment complex in the Las Vegas Valley.

Jade, the newly-constructed property, is situated near the famed Las Vegas Strip, and that fact – in addition to a lack of other recent apartment construction nearby and a regular influx of new residents into the city – is why Ideal Capital chose to make the purchase, according to President and CEO Austin Herzog.

“We just believe in Vegas long-term,” he said, noting that his firm intends to hold onto the property – their first purchase in the region – for an extended period of time.

Located at 3150 West Twain Avenue near Dean Martin Drive, Jade boasts numerous high-end amenities for tenants, including smart-home panels that are compatible Amazon’s “Alexa” digital assistant service, a sky lounge, package “concierge” lockers, electric vehicle charging stations, and more.

2021 saw a whopping 193 Sothern Nevada apartment complex sales being made, far eclipsing the 91 that were sold in 2020 – a much lower number than usual due to the COVID-19 pandemic – or the average of 172 per year for the last five years of the previous decade.

In addition, the average price per luxury apartment unit in 2021 was $215,151, which represents an impressive 38 percent increase over 2020.

Rickie Fowler

Summerlin Luxury Condo of Professional Golf Pro Rickie Fowler Sold for $6 Million

LAS VEGAS, NV – Rickie Fowler, a professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour who is perhaps most notable for winning the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship in 2016 – and at the same time achieving a career-high ranking of fourth in the world – has reportedly sold his luxury condominium at The Summit Club in Summerlin for $6 million, a mere six months after he purchased it for only $2.1 million.

Fowler, 33, according to Clark County records, sold the condo privately in November to the Scarpelli Family Trust, owned by Michael and Janet Scarpelli. Records also indicate that Fowler – originally hailing from Murrieta, California – also owns a home in Jupiter, Florida.

The third-floor condo, originally purchased by Fowler in May, is located in the three-story Club Tower Suites – Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis also owns a condo on the same floor that he paid $3 million for – and comes in at 1,906 square feet.

Fowler had achieved his all-time best showing on the PGA tour this past October, finishing tied for third place at The CJ Cup and earning $565,500.

Club Tower Suites has 16 condo units – all of which have been purchased – and is located next to a still-under-construction clubhouse in The Summit Club that, upon completion, will offer an additional 15 condos. In addition, demand for residences in the community has yielded plans for yet another building to eventually be constructed that will have yet 20 more condo units.

The Summit Club is located in Las Vegas’ Summerlin high-end master-planned community, and as such is called home by numerous celebrities, business owners, athletes and sports team owners. Residences in The Summit Club often fetch impressive prices on the real estate marketplace; 2021 saw the second-highest price ever paid for a home in the community at $18.75 million.

Russell Apartments of Las Vegas

Russell Apartments of Las Vegas Purchased by SB Real Estate Partners for $67 Million

LAS VEGAS, NV – The Russell Apartments, a 241-unit garden-style apartment community in West Las Vegas, has been purchased by a California-based firm that is making its first foray into the Southern Nevada real estate marketplace.

SB Real Estate Partners reportedly paid $67 million for The Russell Apartments, which was 98 percent leased at the time of the sale. SB has announced that they intend to invest an additional $2 million for renovations and upgrades into the property, located at 9620 West Russell Road, with plans to re-brand it as “Portola on Russell.”

Planned renovations to the property include improvements to apartment interiors, common areas, and the facility’s exterior.

The Russell Apartments features one, two, and three-bedroom apartments, in addition to an array of upper-scale amenities, such as a resort-style pool area with a pool-side cabana, barbecue grills, lounge seating areas, a fitness center, dog park, playground, sand volleyball court and a putting green.

SB Real Estate Partners have stated that upon completion of the proposed renovations, the apartment community will be able to compete with higher-end rental complexes in the Las Vegas valley, while offering a lower-than-average price point for rent.

As California residents have been fleeing the state due to ever-increasing taxes and unsustainable living costs, Southern Nevada has seen new additions to its population on a regular basis due to it’s much more reasonable living expenses when compared to its neighboring state to the west.

In addition, the prominence of remote working during the COVID-19 pandemic – especially when it comes to the tech industry – has also been driving up Nevada’s population as well in the past year, and due to these realities, SB Real Estate Partners noted that it was time for them invest in the Las Vegas real estate marketplace.
