A question that I’ve been getting for quite some time now is the inquirer “heard” that there is going to be a bunch of “shadow inventory” that is going to be dumped on the Las Vegas market forcing prices down. As of right now… there is no such indication that is going to happen. Multiple offers are taking place on nice homes… I’ve even been in multiple bidding wars on properties priced $500,000 plus.

Everybody also needs to keep in mind that interest rates are extremely low and all of the people that got foreclosed on or short sold their homes over 3 years ago are back in the market with many of them qualified to buy. I’ve even come across a buyer that short sold their Las Vegas home and bought one of my listings right after their short sale sold. (It is possible if the guidelines are followed.)

And it’s not even the traditional “Buying Season” in Las Vegas yet..

In an upcoming post I’ll go over what’s been taking place for the actual foreclosure notices being filed where there is no indication that the inventory shortage is going to change anytime soon.
