Las Vegas High Rise Market Update - July 2013 - Las Vegas high rise condos are still lagging behind the traditional housing market but they are also picking up steam. As of today, we have 413 high rise condos available for sale in the Las Vegas MLS. Click here to see all the condos currently available for sale. In June, we sold 70 high rise condos through the MLS. That translates into a six month supply of high rise condos for sale, which is a balanced market.
Only 16 of the current high rise condos are listed as short sales. We currently have 7 high rise foreclosures for sale. This includes a luxurious 8205 sf penthouse on the top floor of Tower 4 at Turnberry Place with a price tag of $8,888,888.
More than the number of months of inventory and the declining number of distressed sales in the high rise buildings, we are now seeing increases in prices. Among the units being sold by developers, The Martin has officially ended their "Spring" pricing. Considering that they are more than 75% sold, we are not surprised. We expect to start seeing slight increases with Turnberry Towers and Veer as their sales continue through the Summer. Resale units are also pricing themselves higher.
We attended the Re-Opening party at Veer Towers last month. When Pordes Residential took over Veer Towers, we heard they were going to "soften" the decor by adding art work into the hallways. They lived up to their word. They also showcased new models with designer interiors. Our favorite was the Donna Karan two bedroom suite in the West Tower. With a glass of wine and appetizers at Wolfgang Puck Pizzeria and Cucina before the party, guests got to experience how convenient it is to have go shopping or dining in Crystals and walk home within two minutes. Veer Towers has the best location for those who want to live within a few minutes walk to great dining and shopping.
