Why You Want to Buy or Sell Right Now

 
 

If you're thinking about buying a home, you'll want to make sure you're actually committed to buying a home right now. What I mean by that is, you'll want to get pre-approved by a lender and be prepared to make an offer on a house the day you look at it. If you're not ready, most likely, the house will be off the market before you put in your offer. Due to the low inventory, houses are selling quickly, sometimes within hours of being listed. Houses are receiving multiple offers and without a pre-approval letter, chances are they won't consider your offer because they don't believe you're serious. 

The Las Vegas market has been hovering around 2 months of inventory, which means if all the current listings were sold at the current rate, all of the homes would be gone within 2 months. A balanced market is typically 4-6 months. 

This is good news if you are wanting to sell your home since they are in such high demand, so you should be able to sell it quickly if priced correctly. While not impossible for buyers, they will have to be on their A-game and ready to go when they find the perfect home. A positive for buyers is the market encourages homeowners to sell if they've been thinking about it, which gives a buyer more to look at, they just have to be ready to submit an offer.

The chart above shows only Single Family Homes for the last 6 months. The yellow/gold bars represent the "Active" listings meaning they are on the market and accepting offers. The purple bars represent the "Pending" listings, which means they haven't closed yet, but an offer has been accepted and they are in the process.

Summer Activities in the Valley

 
 

While summer can mean vacations and outdoor activities, it can also create challenges for parents who now have to keep them occupied during the day. According to a recent story by Fox 5 news, many of the camps have been books for months, but there are still some options available if you are looking for activities for your kids. For example, the City of Henderson has spots open in their Summer Kids Zone camp for ages 5-12. It is $112/week or $27/day. 

"Another thing people can do to keep their kids busy is have them volunteer. There are a lot of volunteer organizations that kids can help out in. Goodness Gracious Ministries serves the homeless food all throughout the week. Kids 11 and up can help in the food truck while younger kids can help outside handing out waters and playing games.

Bounce U is a creative way to get the kids out of your hair. They have a camp Monday to Friday from 9am to 3pm for $100 per week or $39 per day. Anyone who mentions FOX5 can get a week for $99. On Saturdays, they offer Parents Night Out from 6:00 p.m. -10 p.m. Anyone who signs up by the Thursday before it’s just $20 for the 1st child and $15 for every child after that."

Here is a list of opportunities available: 

Camp Invention

Etiquette Camp

Rock the Tea Girl Camps (Princess Camp, Rock Star Camp, Spa Camp)

Henderson Day Camp

Clark County Day Camp

Bounce U Camp

Goodness Gracious Ministries

Las Vegas Parks

 
 

While summer is fast approaching in the valley, a great activity is spending time at some of the local parks. For a city like Las Vegas, it is hard to believe there are so many parks. Between Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, and Henderson, there are over 100 parks to enjoy across the valley. The Las Vegas Maps website provides a great resource for all of the park locations. Make sure to check it out here. 

What other fun activities do you have planned for this summer?
