Eviction Moratorium Extension

Report Shows Las Vegas Residents Need to Make $70K to Afford Rent in the Valley

LAS VEGAS, NV – According to a new report by Zillow, Las Vegas residents need to be earning nearly $70,000 a year to be able to afford rent in the valley, an amount that is currently higher than the median household income. The current rental asking price comes in at $1,745, a 1.9 percent year-over-year increase and a whopping 34 percent jump since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

As of 2022, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates that the median annual income for a household in the Las Vegas Valley was $66,356; experts note that dollar amount has not risen by any significant degree in subsequent years due to decreased national wage growth.

In early 2021, the average household needed to be bringing in $52,000 a year to afford rent, meaning that the Las Vegas Valley has experienced the 15th largest increase of all major metro areas in the country.

Rent is typically considered “affordable” if it is takes up less than 30 percent of your monthly income. Rental rates in the Las Vegas Valley actually dropped slightly at the beginning of 2024.

Senior public relations specialist with Zillow, Mark Stayton, notes that the Las Vegas Valley is currently in an unusual situation where the number of units to rent and rental rates are both increasing.

The vacancy rate, which is seasonally adjusted, in Vegas is 9 percent, and has risen by 2.5 percentage points over the course of the pandemic,” he said. “that’s the 12th largest hike among the 50 largest U.S. metros by population.”

However, Skylar Oslen, the chief economist at Zillow and author of the company’s January rental report, predicts that rental rates should start going down across the country in 2024 due to the record levels of apartment construction that is currently underway.

Softer rent growth is ultimately good news for today’s renters who have faced significant financial strain from both general and rent inflation throughout the pandemic,” she said. “With wage growth now slower, but still persistent, rent affordability, the share of a typical household’s income that would go to market rate asking rent, stabilized over the past year at 29 percent. That’s down a percentage point from the record high set in June 2022.”

Las Vegas Turning into a Renter

Rents in Las Vegas Dropping to Start 2024, According to New Report

LAS VEGAS, NV – As per a new report released by Zillow, in the Las Vegas Valley rents showed a distinct decline to kick off 2024, with experts saying now is a good time to be looking for an affordable new apartment in the city.

As per Zillow’s January rental market report, 16 major metropolitan areas in the United States saw a decrease in the average rental asking price at the beginning of the year; among those 16 was Las Vegas, where the average January rent was $1,745, which represents a 0.3 percent decrease from December 2023.

Senior Zillow economist Orphe Divounguy noted that there are several factors in Las Vegas that are contributing to lower rents – such as a cooling job market – resulting in landlords lowering their rates and offering additional perks in order to entice new tenants to sign on the dotted line.

It’s not a bad time to find a new apartment in Las Vegas. Rents are relatively soft right now, annual growth is just $33, and a slight monthly decline is the sixth largest among major metros,” he said. “Concessions offered by landlords, such as free rent or parking, are on the upswing too, and are now offered for nearly 40 percent of Zillow’s local rental listings. But the surge in rents in 2021 and 2022 means they’re now $400 more expensive than before the pandemic.”

Despite Zillow’s report noting the rental decrease in the aforementioned 16 major metropolitan areas in the country, the overall average rent in the United States is nonetheless 29 percent higher than it was prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, with average increases over the last four years of 7 percent annually. In contrast, prior before the pandemic took hold of the nation, the average yearly rental increase rate was 5.5 percent.

Aside from Las Vegas’ 0.3 percent decrease from December, the highest drops in rent in the country were in Austin, Texas (0.5 percent), San Diego (0.4 percent), Buffalo, New York, (0.4 percent) and Riverside, California (0.3 percent).

In addition, experts note that there is less of an incentive for renters to buy homes these days, due to the fact that house prices are increasing at a much faster rate than rent; given the current stability in the rental market, many are saying that is much more feasible to remain a tenant for the time being as opposed to a homeowner.

Clark County

Clark County Commissioner Asks for Review, Caps on Short-Term Rental Fines After One Renter Receives $240,500 Fine

LAS VEGAS, NV – With fines being levied against illegal short-term rental units in Las Vegas’ Clark County reaching astronomical sums – with one recent violator reportedly being hit with a whopping $240,500 penalty – a County Commissioner is calling for a review of the process behind issuing fines, and has proposed establishing a cap on them in the interest of fairness amid criticism of the county’s slow process of approving rental applications.

Clark County had passed an ordinance in June 2022 to begin the process of legalizing short-term rentals following the passage of an assembly bill that required the county to create guidelines to regulate the industry. However, as of February 2024, it remains illegal in Clark County to rent homes for a period of time less than 31 days.

In the meantime, the county continues to review the over 800 applications they have received, a process that the founder of the Greater Las Vegas Short-Term Rental Association, Jaqueline Flores, says is taking far too long and costing homeowners far too much.

So, it’s absolutely ridiculous that it’s taking this long. Property owners have been left out, you know, there’s enough money here to be made for everyone, not just the resort, hotel industry,” she said. “Some homeowners are still trying to comply with the law and not rent their houses but some other ones have bills to pay, and they have no other choice, but to try to continue renting their houses.”

New reports indicate that in the first week of February alone, Clark County issued 13 citations to owners of rental properties who were illegally operating them ahead of Super Bowl LVIII this past weekend. With demand for rental properties at a high point prior to the big game, the owners of some rental units – aggravated with the delay in the issuing of licenses – decided to roll the dice and put their properties on the market via services such as Airbnb and Vrbo.

In response to news that one homeowner in particular had been slapped with a $240,500 fine, County Commissioner Ross Miller noted during a Board of Commissioners meeting that it may be time to give renters a break until the county gets its act together.

Some of those fines are massive. We’ve seen six figure fines,” he said. “Maybe there is some cap to a fine… maybe there is some period of amnesty. I’ve certainly got a number of calls about extensive fines that are being attempted to impose…they may be eligible for a license.”

Super Bowl 2024

Super Bowl LVIII Predicted to Drive Average Daily Rate of Rooms in Vegas to Highest in History

LAS VEGAS, NV – With the Super Bowl slated to take place in Las Vegas this year, experts are predicting that the elite event – which will be attracting sports fans from across the nation, and perhaps even the world – will result in the highest hotel average daily rate (ADR) for any host city in Super Bowl history.

Super Bowl LVIII, the championship game of the National Football League (NFL) for the 2023 season, is scheduled to be played on February 11, 2024 at Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium. 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.

With that being the case, the rental market’s ADR in Las Vegas is projected to reach $573 between the days of February 9 through 11, the highest level out of any Super Bowl weekend in history. The reason for such a surge in prices is clear when you look at the statistics- it is currently anticipated that the rental market in Vegas – from Friday through Sunday night on Super Bowl weekend – will reach a whopping occupancy rate of 87.9 percent, and that level of demand naturally has a significant effect on pricing.

The ADR of $573 – combined with the projected occupancy rate of 87.9 percent – would equate to a revenue per available room (RevPAR) rate of $504. This would result in not only the highest level of demand in Super Bowl history, but also one of the highest for any sporting event in the history of Sin City itself; for example, the Formula One Vegas Grand Prix – held in November 2023 from a Thursday through Saturday period – resulted in an ADR of $502 a RevPAR of $390.

The current record holder for the highest Super Bowl ADR and RevPAR level is Miami, and one of the main reasons that Las Vegas is expected to overtake that record this February is due to the fact that the city has over twice the number of hotels (393) and rooms (172,707) available when compared to the Floridian city.

New Year Eve Parties in Las Vegas

Airbnb Using Power of AI to Clamp Down on New Year’s Eve Parties in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS, NV – This year, New Year’s Eve partiers need to be on the lookout, as Airbnb will be utilizing advanced artificial intelligence technology to clamp down on parties that are held on December 31 in Sin City.

The online rental hosting service will use what they describe as “proprietary AI and machine learning technology” to ensure that individuals utilizing their service are not violating their guidelines. This, according to Airbnb, will apply to 750 guests in the Las Vegas Valley and 1,290 guests in Nevada overall. A total of approximately 63,000 people across the continental United States that will be affected by this new technology as well.

The aim of this system is to try to identify one, two and three night booking attempts for entire home listings over the holiday weekend that could be potentially higher-risk for a disruptive and unauthorized party incident and block those bookings from being made,” an Airbnb statement said. “Guests able to make local reservations will need to attest they understand Airbnb bans parties and that if they break this rule they face suspension or removal from the platform.”

According to the company, the AI technology being utilized is able to identify hundreds of various indicators that could single out an individual property as being utilized for a banned party event. Among these indicators include the length of the stay that the individual is attempting to book, the location of the listing in relation to where they are coming from, the type of listing being booked, and if the client is attempting to book the reservation at the very last minute.

Airbnb – who noted that they began to use AI technology in 2020 – said that they prevented thousands of individuals in 2022 from booking entire homes for purposes that ran afoul of their guidelines, including 63,550 in the United States alone.

Workforce Housing

193-Unit Intrigue Apartments Las Vegas, Workforce Housing, Sells for Nearly $34 Million

LAS VEGAS, NV – Workforce housing property Intrigue Apartments Las Vegas – formerly known as Andiamo Apartments – was recently sold by Wilshire Unlimited to a private family trust in a deal that was worth $33.5 million. 

Part of the sale price was comprised of a $17.5 million Fannie Mae loan that carries a seven-year term with four years of interest-only payments and a 30-year amortization schedule. 

Intrigue Apartments Las Vegas – located at 4600 Vegas Drive, in the vicinity of Highway 95 and five miles from downtown Las Vegas and two miles from North Las Vegas Airport – is made up of 193 units spread out over eight two-story buildings and was originally constructed in 1986. There are both one and two-bedroom floorplans available, with square footage ranging from 700 to 900 feet. There are numerous amenities for tenants including a fitness center, a clubhouse, a swimming pool, laundry facilities, and 300 parking spaces. 

As a workforce housing property, Intrigue Apartments is intended to be affordable to households earning between 60 and 120 percent of area median income (AMI), targeting middle-income workers which includes professions such as police officers, firefighters, teachers, health care workers, retail clerks, and the like. Many cities across the country are investing in workforce housing properties, as it is increasingly difficult these days for middle-income workers to buy or rent housing in the areas in which they work. 

Despite that fact, a recent Yardi Matrix report indicates that multifamily investment has decreased in Las Vegas over the past year. In the first half of 2023, the total sum of transactions amounted to $283 million, compared to the first half of 2022 when that amount was a whopping $2.2 billion. In addition, the average price per unit in the city of Las Vegas dropped by 25.7percent year-over-year this past June, amounting to $184,407.

Las Vegas Formula

Las Vegas Formula 1 Race Drives Record-Braking Sales of High-Rise Condominiums for Views of Racecourse

LAS VEGAS, NV – Realtors in Las Vegas have noted that sales of high-rise condominiums have gone through numerous ups and downs since the mid-2000’s recession. However, the latest surge in the market has been driven by something taking many by surprise: the phenomenon known as sports tourism, with the latest example being driven by an intense and unprecedented level of demand for high-rise apartments along the Las Vegas Strip due to the ongoing Vegas Grand Prix Formula 1 race

Heidi Williams, a Las Vegas realtor specializing in selling high-rise condos out of The Signature at MGM Grand, said that prices for luxury units at the complex “have increased anywhere from 30 percent to 50 percent depending on the type of unit” due to the Las Vegas F1, which runs along the Strip this week. 

I don’t think a lot of people understood how much money there was in F1 and how much money there is in the sport, in the backing (of fans),” Williams said. “I think that people are very excited about F1, and I think a lot of these people just want to be a part of it.” 

The 30-floor Signature at MGM Grand boasts 1,750 suites and offers condos ranging from 520-square-foot properties listed for $320,000 to 1,394-square-foot properties priced as high as $800,000. 

Williams noted that she began seeing purchases at the property related to the F1 race starting approximately nine months ago, with approximately 25 to 30 percent of her clients indicating to her that their condo purchases were specifically due to wanting to be in proximity to the race. 

The F1, running from November 16-19, has been anticipated to draw as many as 170,000 people to Las Vegas. The racecourse runs at the Formula One Pit Building across the street from the Signature off Harmon. From there, it heads down Koval Lane, circles around the MSG Sphere and then goes on Sands Avenue before turning onto Las Vegas Boulevard for a mile; from there, the course turns onto Harmon Avenue and then finally back toward the Pit Building. 

That being said, it’s no wonder units are being snapped up at The Signature at MGM Grand, as the building offers unique views of the racecourse that aren’t available to most spectators. Williams noted that many of the condos being sold at the facility are being purchased by people who solely wish to use them each year just to view the F1 race; The Signature at MGM Grand has a policy that allows units to be rented out when they are not “owner occupied,” thus allowing tourists to purchase them to generate income during the remainder of the year they are not residing there.

Short-Term Rentals

Short Term Rental Listings Fetching Big Money During Las Vegas Formula 1 Event

LAS VEGAS, NV – The Formula One Las Vegas Grand Prix held its opening ceremonies on Wednesday, and short term rental owners in Southern Nevada where STR licenses are currently available – including Henderson, Las Vegas and North Las Vegas – are already reaping large financial benefits.  

Unfortunately, however, some frustrated Clark County landlords have been left out in the cold due to the long and drawn-out process of issuing licenses on the part of the municipality, leaving them unable to offer listings to take advantage of the many out-of-town tourists attending the F1 event, with the race taking place November 16-18. 

The state figured out that the ban wasn’t working and decided to mandate the county to get rid of its ban and start creating a licensing process for people to operate (short-term rentals),” said Jackie Flores, founder of The Greater Las Vegas Short Term Rentals Association. “Of course they have not issued any licenses even though they were supposed to start doing it by July of last year.”  

However, the loss on the part of Clark County renters is the gain of others located in neighboring cities, with many STR owners asking – and receiving – significantly higher rates than usual to house visitors attending the F1. 

An average Airbnb or Vrbo rental costs approximately $150 a night; currently, there are over 1,000 listings available in Las Vegas, with prices ranging from exuberant to budget-friendly and everything in between. 

The priciest rental for the F1 weekend is a 11-bedroom home located in Paradise just east of the Harry Reid International Airport that’s going for a whopping $4,121 a night. The residence is spread up into three separate buildings for a total size of 8,700 square feet, and includes numerous high-end amenities including an outdoor playground, basketball court, a pool, video game room, and much more. 

In contrast, the cheapest rental listed is a private study room for $39 a night in West Las Vegas, giving you the opportunity to “stay with Victor” as his guest during the F1 weekend. That fee will get you a twin bed, a desk, futon, wi-fi, and a door that locks via keypad; a municipal bathroom is located directly across the hall. 

And finally, if you’re looking for a listing based solely on its “cool” factor, another rental located in Paradise offers eight bedrooms and a slew of fun extras, including a putting green, pool, hot tub, outdoor poker table, half-basketball court, pool table, bocci ball, table tennis, an outdoor BBQ grill, and more, all for $1,850 a night.

Formula One

Upcoming Formula 1 Race Leaves Clark County Short-Term Rental Landlords “Extremely Frustrated”

LAS VEGAS, NV – The impending Formula 1 race in Las Vegas will represent an enormous opportunity to draw in record-breaking crowds of tourists to attend the iconic event, and obviously those tourists will need places to stay while in town. However, local homeowners are fuming over what they perceive as a missed financial opportunity due to the fact that short-term rentals currently remain illegal in Clark County, depriving them of the chance to rent out their properties for a tidy profit. 

Local homeowner Tina Turnbull was hoping to rent her home to out-of-town visitors during the Formula 1 event, but currently finds herself forced to turn people away due to the current situation regarding short-term rental laws in Clark County. 

Everyone else is excited and I’m just kind of like, feel like huge opportunities are being missed for me,” she said. “I’ve already turned down multiple booking requests. I just have to explain to them that because of the local laws, I can’t rent the house for less than 30 days.” 

After approving a short-term rental ordinance in June 2022, Clark County had started an application process for short term rentals in September 2022. The 1,300 applications they subsequently received were placed in a random number generator, which assigned a number to applicants to determine the order in which they would be considered for a license. However, after homeowners submitted paperwork this past August during the next phase of the process, they have been left waiting for answers that so far have not come. 

Turnbull Is among those homeowners who say they have been left dangling. 

Louis Koorndyk, co-founder of the Greater Las Vegas Short-Term Rental Association (GLVSTRA), said that his members have grown upset over their inability to tap in to the expected $1 billion local economic boost that the Formula 1 race is expected to generate when it takes place on Sunday, November 19. 

All the hosts or potential hosts out there are finding this extremely frustrating. The buzz in the community is really, why is it taking so long? When are these licensing dices going to start to be issued?” he said. “They want to be a part of this because the host community contributes to everything. They contribute economically. They help. They don’t take away from the hotels and casinos, they add.” 

In response to reporting on this situation, Clark County issued the following statement: 

At this time, we are in the process of reviewing the applications for completeness and eligibility. This process is necessarily time-consuming to ensure that the large volume of applications are evaluated in a consistent and fair manner. Applications that are incomplete or ineligible will be issued denials,” the statement read. “After this portion of the application review process is completed, Clark County Business License will identify applicants that may move on to safety inspections based on the order of priority established by the Random Number Generator selection process.”

Las Vegas Turning into a Renter

Rental Rates in Las Vegas Valley Dropped for Second Month in a Row, Report Says

LAS VEGAS, NV – After skyrocketing for a significant amount of time and raising affordability concerns in the city, a new Zillow report indicates that rental rates in Las Vegas have decreased for the second month in a row, showing that the marketplace is beginning to achieve a level of stability.  

The average rental price in September for a two-bedroom apartment in Las Vegas was $1,808 – a figure that Zillow determined by calculating the weighted nationwide average – which represents a 0.2 percent drop from August, and a 1.4 percent drop from September 2022. 

Currently, rental rates in Las Vegas are at their lowest point since October 2022; however, this situation does not echo developments in the rental market nationwide. According to the consumer price index (CPI) – utilized by the federal government to gauge inflation – rents across the country are still on the rise, and experts have stated that high rental rates have been one of the last key metrics that have kept inflation at its current exuberant level. 

Overall rental rates in the country were up 0.2 percent in September, although senior economist Orphe Divounguy stated that such increase is not entirely accurate to the CPI, nor indicative of actual market conditions, due to many new tenants signing 12-month or longer rental agreements.  

With that being the case, current conditions may take approximately a year to start reflecting in the CPI, Divounguy said, and the real numbers indicate that stability is slowly returning to the rental market across the country, as well as in Las Vegas

Although the consumer price index showed an uptick in rent prices in September, annual rent inflation continues to moderate and is likely to continue to move in the right direction,” he said. “This is because rent inflation tends to be most responsive to labor market tightness. Wage growth is moderating.”

Parq at Camino

Work on New North Las Vegas Apartment Complex Completed, Now Leasing

LAS VEGAS, NV – Construction on Parq at Camino, a new luxury apartment complex in North Las Vegas, has been completed and the facility is now open and leasing to new tenants

Parq at Camino, developed by Morgan Stonehill, is comprised of 417 units spread out over 13 buildings and is located northwest of the Craig Ranch Regional Park and south of the 215 Beltway. It features one, two, and three-bedroom apartments ranging in square footage from 837 to 1,299, with rents starting at $1,407. 

The complex’s management company, Cushman & Wakefield, noted that Parq at Camino features numerous amenities for their tenants, including electric vehicle charging stations, covered parking, pet washing stations, a dog park, a pool, clubhouse, indoor and outdoor fitness center, business center with computers and internet access, and an outdoor picnic area with barbecue grills. 

The Las Vegas Valley has been experiencing issues with housing options for its many residents with a shortage of both single-family homes and apartments, and one of the areas hardest hit by this problem is North Las Vegas.  

While over the course of the last year North Las Vegas saw rents dipping significantly for one-bedroom apartments, reports indicate that they have been increasing steadily as of late due to increased demand. 

However, that demand is slated to be addressed as numerous apartment units – including Parq at Camino – are either opening or are in the process of opening across the valley, including in North Las Vegas. As more apartment units open, rents are expected to decrease proportionately, providing a measure of relief for those looking for affordable housing options. 

North Las Vegas is currently ranked fifth on the list of cities with the greatest population increase since 2020, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, having added 9,917 additional new residents by 2021.

Rentals

Realtors Show Concern Over Wall Street Buying Las Vegas Homes En Masse for Rentals

LAS VEGAS, NV – Realtors in Las Vegas are beginning to show serious concern over a growing trend that eerily reflects market conditions prior to the mid-2000s recession; back then, it was Wall Street packaging risky subprime mortgages into mortgage-backed securities.  

Fast-forward to today, and Las Vegas Realtor Noah Herrera says that Wall Street is back at it again in a slightly different fashion, purchasing as many homes in the valley as they can, renting them out in what some allege is a “predatory” fashion, and packaging them as rental-backed securities. 

Wall Street is destroying Main Street…again,” Herrera said. “And it’s kind of hard to stomach because at the end of the day, this is capitalism.” 

Herrera Isn’t the only one expressing these concerns; reports indicate that many real estate agents based in the Las Vegas Valley are chiming in on multi billion dollar Wall Street hedge funds and investors snapping up homes left and right, pushing everyday homebuyers out of the market with what many are referring to as “aggressive buying and rental tactics.” 

In Clark County alone, 80,000 single-family homes are owned by investors and hedge funds, which represents approximately 14 percent of the 563,000 homes within its borders. In addition, almost 10 percent of all home purchases within Clark County since 1988 had been made by Wall Street, reports say, and about 13 percent of all single-family home sales in the county since 2012 were made by investors. 

Wall Street home purchases in the Las Vegas Valley hit their highest level in 2021, making up approximately 18 percent of all sales; home purchases by investors swelled even higher in other parts of Southern Nevada, reaching as high as 20 percent in some regions. 

According to Shawn McCoy, director of UNLV’s Lied Center for Real Estate, many of these homes being snapped up over the decades by Wall Street never again hit the market. 

Since 1988, 77 percent of homes that were purchased by investors were never sold again, suggesting that roughly three quarters of homes that are purchased by investors are held as long-term rentals,” McCoy said. 

Las Vegas Realtor Steve Hawks said this situation has the effect of pricing out local buyers and results in a large portion of local Las Vegas housing inventory being owned not by residents, but by out-of-state investors. 

Wall Street hedge funds have completely destroyed the traditional real estate cycle and industry as we know it,” he said. “For example, entry-level buyers no longer have access to affordable entry-level homes. People wanting to downsize no longer see it worthwhile to downsize due to the lack of entry-level homes under $500,000.”
