Las Vegas High Rise Condos For Sale

Las Vegas High Rise CondosToday's high rise buyers have 530 choices in the top Las Vegas High Rise communities.  Up from last month's selection of 495 units.  That also signals the end of a four month pattern of declining inventory in our high rise market.  It's a noticeable increase over October 2014.  At that time we found 425 luxury high rise condos listed for sale.  

Some of this is due to Palm's Place and Veer Towers' developer units coming on the market.  The units were there last year but not yet listed.  A shadow inventory of sorts in the high rise market.  We have 59 condos listed in Palms Palce.  Veer Towers offers 58 units for sale.

Six of the current high rise listings are short sales and six of them are foreclosures.
