Las Vegas High Rise Update - January 2014
A review of Las Vegas High Rise Condo buildings for the month of December shows a typical slowdown over the holidays. We've started the New Year with 441 high rise condos available in our most popular buildings.
We sold 40 high rise condos through the MLS in December. We've averaged 53 units per month over the past year. This is typically a slow time of year with fewer conventions bringing high rise buyers into town.
Of the condos that sold in December, prices have been good. Seven of the condos that closed in December sold for more than $1 Million. Top price paid was at Park Towers where an 11th floor condo sold for $2.3M.
Type of Sale:
Only 4 of the high rise condos sold in December were foreclosures. Only three of the high rise condos sold last month were short sales. Of the 441 listings currently available, 10 are short sales and 7 are foreclosures. The distress sales continue to be a smaller per cent age of the high rise market.
Sold Price Per Square Foot - Eight condos sold for less than $200/sf. Two units tied for the lowest price per square foot. At Metropolis, unit 503 with 2110 sf of living space closed for $330K or $156/sf. At Newport Lofts, unit 801 with 911 sf of living space sold for $142K or $156/sf. Six condominiums sold for more than $500/sf. Highest price per square foot was unit 3708 at the Cosmopolitan. This penthouse offered 1260 sf of living space and sold for $1,040,000 or $825/sf. Three units at the Mandarin Oriental closed for more than $600/sf.
Cash buyers continue to rule the high rise market. Thirty two of the units sold in December were cash purchases. Six used traditional/convention financing. Two of the purchases involved private financing or "Owner Will Carry".
Days on Market:
In addition to seeing the number of units sold slow down a bit, we're seeing a higher number of units that stay on the market more than 30 days. Out of the 40 condos that sold in December, 29 were on the market more than 30 days. Out of the 11 that sold in less than 30 days, 10 of those sold in under 15 days on the market.
