Many of these people have already been negatively impacted by illegal short-term rentals in their communities, many of which are leased to groups who hold loud, disruptive parties; as a result, many who have given their opinions on possible regulations are split regarding their desire to even have rentals in their neighborhoods.

Police to Crack Down on Super Bowl Parties at Short-Term Rentals, Asks Public to Report Disturbances

LAS VEGAS, NV – With Super Bowl LVIII attracting thousands upon thousands of sports fans to Las Vegas – where the big game is being hosted on February 11 at Allegiant Stadium – police have announced that they will be cracking down on loud and rowdy parties at short-terms rentals this weekend, and are asking the public to contact them to report any disturbances in their neighborhoods.

Super Bowl LVIII will determine the champion of the National Football League (NFL) for the 2023 season. A rematch of Super Bowl LIV, it will be played between the National Football Conference (NFC) champion San Francisco 49ers and the American Football Conference (AFC) champion and defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs.

In response to community concerns about disruptive parties at short term-rentals during the Super Bowl, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has been passing out flyers urging the public to contact them if they are experiencing any issues this weekend.

It’s almost Super Bowl weekend and we need your help,” the flyer reads, a copy of which was shared by authorities on X (formerly Twitter). “Please report large parties at short term rentals in your neighborhood. See flyer on how to report them. Thank you!”

The flyer states that the “LVMPD needs your help to report chronic nuisance or party homes in your neighborhood.” Residents are asked to call 911 to report “active emergencies or crimes” taking place, and 311 if they think that police “need to be aware of suspicious or nuisance behavior,” including large and disruptive parties. Service requests can also be filed at, and anonymous online tips can be submitted to Crime Stoppers of Nevada at

If you are aware of a problem or a party house in your community, we want to know about it,” the flyer says.

The crackdown on short term rentals by police comes in the wake of the city of Las Vegas starting to impose large fines on unlicensed renters; recently, the city imposed a $180,000 penalty upon the owner of an Airbnb who they say was operating without the required license.

Las Vegas Strip

Following Slowest Year in Decade, Las Vegas Home, Condo Sales Rebound in January 2024

LAS VEGAS, NV – With 2023 representing the slowest year for real estate in Las Vegas in over a decade, January 2024 showed a significant rebound with both home and condominium sales improving significantly, giving experts hope that the upcoming year will show great improvement as the national economy continues to stabilize.

According to a new report by Las Vegas Realtors, the prices of homes were higher – and the inventory lower – last month when compared to January 2023. The median sales price of an existing single-family home in January was $445,000, which represents an approximate 5 percent increase year-over-year. In addition, the median sales price of condominiums and townhomes in Las Vegas in January was $275,000, nearly a 9 percent increase from the same month one year prior.

Merri Perry, President of Las Vegas Realtors, noted that the escalating economy – coupled with the affordability factor that has long been associated with Las Vegas – is contributing to the improvements in the local real estate market in the new year.

Over the past few months, we’ve seen benefits from lower interest rates and relatively stable home prices here in Southern Nevada,” she said. “Now, if we could just get more homes on the market, we’d really be in good shape.”

Sales of homes, condominiums, and townhomes in Las Vegas totaled almost 2,000 in total in January, representing an approximate 12 percent increase in home sales year-over-year, and a 20 percent increase for condos in townhomes.

At the end of last month there were over 3,555 single-family homes for sale on the open market without any offers, which is a whopping 35 percent decrease from January 2023; in addition, there were more than 1,130 condos and townhomes listed for sale without offers, which is an 8 percent decrease.

The total combined value of all Las Vegas-based real estate transactions in January was more than $842 million for homes – a year-over-year increase of 19.6 percent – and approximately $139 million for condos and townhomes, up 17 percent.

There is also a large garage that houses the sellers’ personal aviation museum.

Lake Las Vegas, Nevada

Development, Sales in Lake Las Vegas See Exploding Growth in Recent Years, 2024 Expected to Be Biggest

LAS VEGAS, NV – While it had previously been known as a place where individuals would purchase vacation homes they would mainly visit on weekends, the Lake Las Vegas master-planned community has seen an explosion in development over the last few years – starting with the early months of the pandemic – and is currently poised to have its biggest sales year ever in 2024.

This news comes as additional nationwide attention will be focused on Lake Las Vegas in February, as both participating football teams in Super Bowl LVIII will be lodging at hotels located there, with the Kansas City Chiefs staying at Westin Lake Las Vegas, and the San Francisco 49ers at Hilton Lake Las Vegas.

In 2023, Lake Las Vegas saw its second-highest level of sales since the mid-2000s recession, with 302 new homes purchased; this represents a 42 percent jump over 2022, when 212 homes were sold. However, the highest number of homes sold at that community following the recession was 389 in 2021, which took place during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic when many people across the country were purchasing new residences.

We’ve had our second-best year ever and the sales are piling up on themselves,” said Pat Parker, President of Lake Las Vegas developer Raintree Investment Corp. “We had one person who bought four custom lots and then bought a house at (our Shoreline project). If you get a customer who does that, you’re doing well. We’re strong from $8 million all the way to $500,000.”

Sales in Lake Las Vegas have grown to such a degree that Pulte Del Webb Lake Las Vegas – a 55-and-up retirement community – saw the second highest number of sales in the entire Las Vegas Valley in 2023 with 148 brand-new homes purchased.

Sales of existing single-family homes have also been brisk in Lake Las Vegas, with 187 sold via the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) in 2023 – with an average sales price of $933,000 – exceeding the 144 sold in 2022 and 163 sold in 2021.

There were also 18 townhomes sold in Lake Las Vegas in 2023, with an average price of $516,000.

Former Vegas Home of Comedy Legend Jerry Lewis for Sale Once Again, $2.5 Million

LAS VEGAS, NV – After changing hands several times in recent years, the former Las Vegas home of comedy legend Jerry Lewis is once again for sale, with the current owner asking $2.5 million.

Lewis had resided in the home – located in Las Vegas’ swanky Scotch 80s neighborhood – for almost 35 years; upon his death in 2017, it initially had difficulty in finding a buyer before eventually being sold to Jane Popple in 2019 for $1.2 million. It was then auctioned off for the sum of $2.5 million, but when the bid fell through, it was listed on the open market for $1.8 million.

Thereafter, the property was sold to Iddo Gavish of Century 21 Gavish Real Estate for approximately $1.4 million. Gavish had spruced up the property before putting up for sale, modernizing the home with several large-scale updates to the landscaping, gates, pool, master bathroom and kitchen due to a need for “rehab and renovation.”

Later, the home – which comes in at 7,230 square-feet and offers an impressive six bedrooms and six bathrooms – was purchased by Blooming Desert LLC in 2021 for $1.4 million. It was then put up for sale for a brief amount of time in 2022 for an asking price of $2.7 million; however, the home was later sold in September 2023 in a foreclosure sale for approximately $2 million to Brumbies Capital, a private lending company.

1701 WALDMAN AVENUE, LAS VEGAS – $2,500,000.00

Nate Strager of Luxury Estates International Is the listing agent for the property, which was put on the market on January 17. The home listing notes that additional renovations were carried out following the foreclosure amounting to approximately $40,000 worth of work, which focused mainly on landscaping and refinishing the pool.

Two sets of sliding glass doors gaze out to an extensively renovated backyard with new turf, mature trees, brick walkways, a gazebo and firepit-ready corner patio,” the listing says.

Other amenities in the house include a large chandelier in the family room, a covered balcony overlooking downtown Las Vegas, and a three-car garage with a small living space that could function as an additional bedroom.

Top Condo Sales of 2023: Las Vegas Raiders Owner Mark Davis at Number One with $10.5 Million

LAS VEGAS, NV – 2023 saw an impressive number of condominium sales in Las Vegas, with the highest-priced property that exchanged hands last year taking place courtesy of Mark Davis, the owner of the Las Vegas Raiders NFL team, who sold off his condo located in Summerlin’s affluent The Summit Club for a cool $10.5 million.

Davis – who had originally listed the condo for $13.5 million – purchased the 2,862-square-foot unit in March 2021 for $5.3 million, making the sale price a substantial return on his initial investment.

Clark County property records lists Stay Away LLC as the buyer of the two-story condo, which boasts two bedrooms, two three-quarter baths, one half bath, a great room with a fireplace, a large kitchen, and a balcony.

Davis made the decision to sell his condo because he wanted to be closer to West Henderson, where the Raiders’ headquarters is located. At the time of the listing, he reportedly stated he realized he would be unable to see the Raiders’ Allegiant Stadium from The Summit Club abode, which was “starting to drive me crazy.”

Davis currently has a $14 million home under construction at 77 Sunset Strip in the Henderson hillsides of Ascaya, where he plans to reside full-time.

The 15,000-square-foot Ascaya residence is being developed by luxury builder Blue Heron on a 6.3-acre plot of land that Davis purchased for $6 million. The three-story home is being built so that it resembles Allegiant Stadium – of which it will have unobstructed views – with the upper floor being patterned after the bridge of a ship.

Following Davis’ condominium, the number two condo sale in Las Vegas for 2023 was an $8 million tie between a 6,401-square-foot penthouse at Turnberry Place and a 3,922-square-foot condo at the Waldorf Astoria on the Las Vegas Strip.

Steven Horseford

Nevada Senator to Introduce Legislation to Provide Oversight of Investor Home Renting

LAS VEGAS, NV – Rising home prices in Nevada, coupled with a rapidly increasing number of single-family houses being snatched up by corporate investors to be used as rentals properties, has made the path to home ownership for some state residents wrought with insurmountable obstacles due to affordability concerns and an overall lack of inventory.

Investors have been snapping up a significant number of residences in southern Nevada in recent years, with approximately 15 percent of single-family homes in Clark County being owned by such entities. The scope of this issue was laid bare by a report earlier this month that revealed a Dallas-based corporate landlord – backed by Wall Street – had purchased 264 homes in Clark County in a massive sale that took place on a single day in the summer of 2023.

Nevada lawmakers have previously introduced bills with the intent to limit and track the number of homes purchased by investors within the state. The most recent attempt pushed forth during the 2023 state legislative session, SB 395, was vetoed by Governor Joe Lombardo, who claimed the bill would have had a detrimental effect upon jobs, tax revenue, and the availability of rental properties.

However, action on this matter is now potentially being taken on a federal level. U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen and Congressman Steven Horseford, both Nevada-based Democrats, are co-sponsoring a bill called the Housing Oversight and Mitigating Exploitation (HOME) Act which, if passed, would make it illegal for any entity to rent or sell a unit at a price that was considered unreasonable, in addition to tasking the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) with investigating instances of alleged price gouging and manipulation on the part of corporate investors.

Sky-high costs of housing and rent are hurting hardworking Nevadans and putting a strain on their budgets,” Senator Rosen said. “That’s why I’m introducing a bill to crack down on price gouging by corporate investors and lower housing costs for Nevada families. I’m committed to doing everything I can to lower costs and give Nevadans more breathing room.”

Las Vegas Housing

Report: 2023 Was Slowest Year for Las Vegas Housing Market in 15 Years

LAS VEGAS, NV – Despite an increase in sales prices over the course of 2023, a new report indicates that the year was the slowest the Las Vegas Valley housing market has seen since 2008 – a time span of 15 years – with an 18 percent drop from 2022 alone.

According to new statistics from Las Vegas Realtors, in December 2023 the medium price of a single-family home was $449,900, an increase of approximately 6% when compared to the same month in 2022, when that amount was $425,000. However, December 2023’s prices still fall below the all-time record of $482,000, which was originally set in May 2022.

Las Vegas Realtors President Merri Perry – who recently succeeded Lee Barrett in the position – said that the fall in sales can mostly be attributed to a limited housing supply in the region, and anticipates that 2024 will see the Las Vegas real estate scene bounce back in a very real way.

It was good to see interest rates coming back down late in the year. That helps more buyers afford a home,” Perry said. “While we still need more homes on the market, many national experts are predicting at least some increase in the housing supply as we get into 2024. That should help buyers and help us sell more homes.”

Overall, 29,069 existing homes, condominiums, and townhomes were sold in Southern Nevada in 2023, a decrease of 18% from 2022, when 35,584 were sold; in contrast, 2021 saw a record-setting number of home sales for the year at 50,010.

Listings of new homes in Las Vegas saw a 10.3% decrease when compared to November, and a 30% decrease year-over-year. However, housing prices jumped 1.3% in December from the previous month and a whopping 19.5% from December 2022.

Experts are also attributing “sticker shock” to the slowdown in home sales due to elevated interest rates on mortgages. But with those rates anticipated to begin to slowly drop in the coming year, that may fuel more instances of home purchases, particularly in light of the fact that home values currently don’t appear to be dropping. After all, if rates start to drop but prices continue to increase, experts say, it’s better to buy now than in the future when prices may be even higher.

Wall Street

Wall Street-Backed Corporate Landlord Purchased 264 Clark County Homes in Single Day, According to New Report

LAS VEGAS, NV – According to a new report released this week, a Dallas-based corporate landlord backed by Wall Street purchased hundreds of homes in Clark County in a massive sale that took place on a single day in the summer of 2023.

Spread out amongst three separate residential transactions that took place on July 18, a whopping 264 homes in Clark County were purchased by Invitation Homes (NYSE: INVH) from the Miami-based investment firm Starwood Capital Group. The three transactions consisted of $57.5 million for 155 homes, $26.3 million for 70 homes, and $14.1 million for 39 homes, for a grand total of $98 million, as per Clark County property records.

94 of the homes sold were located in the city of Las Vegas, With an additional 77 homes in North Las Vegas. The purchase price for the homes in question ranged from between $292,000 to $694,000, with the average price being $371,514.

While that deal between Starwood Capital and Invitation Homes may seem mind-bogglingly huge, it was merely part of a larger transaction between the two entities that consisted of a $650 million real estate portfolio swap for approximately 1,900 single-family rental homes, most of which are spread out amongst areas in Texas, Florida, Arizona, Nevada, and California.

The deal is part of an ongoing phenomenon where hedge funds and corporate landlords backed by Wall Street – in addition to affluent investors – have been responsible for a rash of purchases of single-family homes across the country in recent years that they then typically utilize as rental properties. However, experts say this has been contributing to a shortage of affordable housing for families, in addition to being responsible for a rise in rental rates as well.

At this rate, according to a study by MetLife Investment Management, by 2030 approximately 40 percent of all houses in the United States could be owned by Wall Street corporations.

2023 in Review: The Top Residential Sales in Las Vegas Real Estate Over the Past Year

LAS VEGAS, NV – As 2023 draws to a close on one of the more unusual and noteworthy years in Las Vegas real estate, let’s take a look back over the past 365 days and highlight the top residential sales that have taken place in Southern Nevada. Despite the market experiencing a slowdown overall, some very high-priced homes changed hands in Clark County in 2023, and below you’ll see the top five in reverse order, with the exception of multiparcel sales.

Number five is Skyspace, located at 7 Painted Feather Way in Summerlin’s The Ridges neighborhood, which sold in September for $15.9 million. The 12,162 square-foot residence boasts five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and numerous high-end touches, including a full Italian Scavolini kitchen.

Coming in at number four is a mansion at 8 Rockmount Court in Henderson’s affluent Ascaya community.  This 12,101 square foot home is located on a 2.27-acre plot of land and sold in June for $20.5 million. It has six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a six-car garage, a pool, and even a putting green.

Number three is a residence located at 11765 Discovery Canyon Drive in Summerlin’s pricey The Summit Club, which traded hands in August for $21.2 million. The home – which was reportedly purchased by an individual on behalf of Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg – comes in at 8,419 square feet and has six bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, and a pool.

A massive mega-mansion compound located on a 16-acre plot of land at 99 Spanish Gate Drive in Las Vegas’ wealthy Spanish Trail community sold in December for $25 million. The compound – previously linked to Jefri Bolkiah, the prince of Brunei – boasts a super-impressive 25 bedrooms and 46 bathrooms, spread amongst 10 interconnected buildings.

And finally, the number one residential sale in Las Vegas for 2023 comes courtesy of pop megastar Celine Dion, who sold her mansion – located at 10850 Summit Club Drive in The Summit Club – in April for $30 million, setting a new all-time Clark County record in the process. Dion originally purchased the home – which comes in at over 30,985 square feet and has 9.5 bathrooms – in 2017 for 9.2 million, but reportedly never actually moved into it.

Las Vegas Anticipated to Become “Buyer’s Market” in 2024, Real Estate Experts Say

LAS VEGAS, NV – With the last bits of COVID-19-era inflation hopefully evaporating next year, Las Vegas real estate experts are expecting current record-high home mortgage interest rates to drop slightly in 2024, slowly transforming Southern Nevada into a “buyers’ market” after several years of the reverse being the case.

However, those same experts are shooting down hopes that interest rates will eventually return to the extremely affordable levels they were at during the start of the pandemic, saying that no matter how much they do go down, elevated rates are expected to be the new norm going forward.

After the Federal Reserve raised interest rates numerous times in order to combat the 40-year high inflation gripping the nation, all eyes are on the agency after their announcement they intend to finally cut interest rates three times in 2024.

Las Vegas Realtors President Lee Barrett said he expects the overnight federal funds rate to indeed decrease next year, but does not anticipate they will eventually get back December 2022’s 4.1 percent; the current average rate for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is 7.2 percent.

This is going to be the new norm, higher interest rates and higher mortgage rates,” Barrett said. “They may drop, for the election a little bit, but I think 6.5 or 7 percent is where they are going to range next year.”

That being said, many real estate experts are predicting that 2024 will potentially see the Las Vegas Valley have its worst year for sales since 2008, with some saying it is a genuine mystery where the industry will head next year. However, with inflation improving and mortgage rates expected to come down a bit – leading to many who were holding out on listing their homes due to higher mortgage costs to finally do so – experts anticipate that the industry will shift towards a buyer’s market.

But that is not a certainty, experts say, as Las Vegas has a low inventory of properties currently available, and despite dropping sales figures, home sellers have for the most part been steadfastly refusing to cut their asking prices. Indeed, prices are only expected to drop 1 percent in the second and third quarters of 2024, creating what is known as a “locking” phenomenon in the Southern Nevada market.

Indeed, where the Las Vegas real estate market will go in 2024 is anybody’s guess at this point; the only thing that appears to be sure is that nothing is for sure.
