Las Vegas High Rise Market Trends

Today’s listings would last ten months if no new condos came on the market.  The high rise market still favors buyers.  If the January slump continued, the current supply would take even longer to absorb.

Palms Place had the highest sales volume in January with nine condos sold.  They were followed by 7 condos at Panorama Towers and 5 a MGM Signature.  Bear in mind, these numbers are based on units that are sold through the Las Vegas MLS.  It doesn't include many of the "developer" units which don't make it into the MLS.  It is more useful in looking at what to expect if you are buying or selling a resale condo.
