Nevada Keeps Growing And Has Reached A New Milestone

Thanks to an exodus from California, Nevada has reached a major benchmark - 3 million residents.

From July 2017 to July 2018, 50,000 Californians left the Golden State and arrived in the Silver State. That figure is 40 percent of all the people who arrived in Nevada at that time.

Nevada's lack of income tax and lower cost of living is a big draw for Californians. The average person without a high-tech job is struggling to keep up with the cost of living increases in the Golden State.

Nevada now has over 3 million residents.

That's not to say that the exchange is all one-way. Nevada lost 22,400 citizens to California as well. Often, this was for jobs that don't exist in the Silver State.

For those who choose to live in cities, the cost of living in Nevada's largest cities, like Las Vegas and Reno, is significantly lower than in Los Angeles or San Francisco, where home and condo prices and the cost of living lead the nation in many categories.

Median home values, California to Nevada (January 2020):

San Francisco: $1,392,859
Los Angeles: $723,783
San Diego: $652,175
Reno: $389,280
Carson City: $340,938
Las Vegas: $285,524

Just proximity to California increases the home values.

There are now more adults born in California living in Nevada than native Nevadans. This is causing a bit of a cultural shift that states like Texas are also beginning to see. Many amenities that are part of California culture are being built here in Nevada, including an NFL team from the Golden State.

In total, 127,000 people chose Nevada over their current home states, making the Silver State the fastest growing in the country.

Other states in the West, like Washington, Arizona, and Utah, as well as Texas, all gained citizens.

Big Things Happening In Las Vegas For 2020

2020 will be a big year for big construction projects in Las Vegas. Dozens of massive projects are expected to be completed this year, further cementing Las Vegas' status as a tourist attraction and major business hub.

Here's a list of some of the projects that should be online by 11:59 pm on December 31:

Allegiant Stadium - This brand-new domed NFL stadium will be home to Las Vegas Raiders. The stadium is nearing completion and is expected to draw millions of visitors to the city throughout the football season. To augment the NFL season, the stadium will also be home to the University of Nevada Las Vegas Rebels college team. Vegas will quickly become a football town.

Raiders team headquarters - Right near the stadium, the Raiders headquarters is also under construction. The entire organization will be right here in Las Vegas and is expected to boost employment.

Caesar's Forum and Las Vegas Convention Center expansions - Another 550,000 square feet of convention space will open up at Caesar's Forum and will come online at the same time that the Convention Center expansion is being completed. Between these two new additions, the city will be the most convention-friendly city in the country.

Google Data Center - Google's nearly $600 million data center will provide the region with the fastest processing possible. Businesses in the region will have a local data center that provides world-class storage and processing power.

Commercial & tourism projects around Las Vegas are expected to complete in 2020.

Circa Resort and Casino - A new casino will open on the same spot where the Las Vegas Club, Glitter Gulch, and Mermaids Casino once stood. With 44 floors and 777 rooms, this new gem is designed to be a throwback to a bygone era in Las Vegas history, with all the modern conveniences and amenities.

Underground People Mover - When you go to the convention center, you'll soon be able to ride the underground people mover that's being built by the Boring company and will have Tesla vehicles. This is Vegas' first underground people mover and will make getting around the 200 acres of the convention center easier and cooler.

Virgin Trains - A new high-speed train line from Las Vegas to Victorville, CA, will start operation. With an average speed of 130 mph and topping out at 150 mph, the train will make the 186 mile trip in one hour and 24 minutes. This line will eventually connect with high-speed lines running to Los Angeles and north-south in California.

Las Vegas is one the country's fastest growing cities and it's getting many amazing amenities that other major cities don't have. The availability of land and the fact that the city was settled only in the mid-20th century give it the flexibility to do things that other US cities are struggling to make happen.

Las Vegas Ended December 2019 With A Bang

December was a good month for the Las Vegas housing market.

The market saw both an increase in the number of homes sold and the median price of the homes.

With 2,609 homes sold in December, the market posted an increase 8.4 percent over the previous month and a whopping 21.8 percent over the same time the year before.

Median home prices were up 2 percent over November and a full 6 percent versus December 2018.

Could this be a look into the 2020 real estate market in Las Vegas?

Most of 2019 saw softening in the market with slower sales, slightly lowering prices, and increased inventory. Home builders saw slower sales than the previous years, but December might be a glimpse to what the 2020 housing market might do.

The massive sales in December caused a significant drop in inventory. There were 5,387 homes for sale at the end of December, down 16.3 percent less than December 2018 and 15.2 less than the month before.

Through all of 2019, pre-owned home sales were down 4 percent over the year before.

Overall, analysts expect the Las Vegas market to break the all-time peak median price that was achieved in 2013. The market has recovered slowly from the mid-2000s bubble. Most analysts don't see a major bubble burst on the horizon. They feel prices in the Las Vegas area are somewhat permanent, although prices will fluctuate on a month-by-month basis.

North Las Vegas Warehouse Construction Continues

  • Trammell Crow will build another 2.7 million square foot industrial project in North Las Vegas
  • Seefried Industrial Properties and Clarion Brothers will build 2.6 million square feet in the city
  • CapRock is adding 683,000 square feet of industrial space to the city

All together, there is another 6 million square feet of industrial and warehouse space planned for North Las Vegas.

This city has been chosen of all the cities in the valley more often because there are still large tracts of land available. In much of the rest of the valley, land has been divided into pieces too small to accommodate the massive industrial buildings that have been envisioned.

North Las Vegas has nearly half of all new warehouses in the valley.

Between 2015 and 2018, 24 million square feet of industrial space was put online in the valley. Nearly half of that was built in North Las Vegas.

The city economic development director, Gina Gavan told the Las Vegas Review-Journal, that while Amazon and Fanatics get a lot of press, there are all types of industries moving into the new space. Businesses like health care, trucking, and plumbing are all taking up residence in the industrial space.

The Seefried/Clarion purchase was completed last month. It was a $58 million sale for 150 acres. With 2.6 million square feet to build, the first phase is expected to start in January and continue for years.

Construction on the Trammell Crow project started in the last two months and work on the CapRock project started last month.

The CapRock project will be slightly different in that the buildings, which will be built near the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, will be able to be subdivided to as small as 30,000 square feet, making it ideal for medium-sized businesses to expand in the Las Vegas area.

The Area Around UNLV Will Have More Housing Options

UNLV students may soon have more housing choices thanks to multiple developments planned for the area around the university.

Long primarily a commuter school, housing near campus will allow UNLV students to live right near where they take their classes.

In 2019, three new residential complexes opened on or near campus. Combined, the three complexes added 566 new rent/lease units to the college area.

More housing around UNLV will help the school be less of a commuter school.

The Degree, 226 units on campus is over 90 percent leased out as of the fall semester. Echo 1055 offer 215 units and it is also nearly full. The YoU, on the other side of Maryland Parkway from campus, accepted its first tenants in late August. It provides another 125 units for rent and lease to college students.

The increase in apartments comes amid an increase in the size of the student body. Up more than 9 percent since 2013, the student body at the University of Nevada Las Vegas was 30,457 students in the fall of 2018.

Far from being stripped down student housing, Echo 1055 offers a Zen garden, a yoga studio, and study rooms, along with other extra.

G2 Capital Development, which developed The YoU, is also planning on building another 400 apartments and a hotel on the site of the former Campus Village retail and office complex. That project will also include a rooftop pool deck, retail and workout room, to name just a few items.

The Degree has outdoor cabanas, hammocks, a fire pit, and even fully-furnished apartments.

The move to grow housing near UNLV represents a change in how college students are willing to live. The biggest change is the students expect more for their money than a stripped down apartment building where washers and dryers in the basement are the biggest amenity.

West Henderson Real Estate Is Booming

In the southern end of the Las Vegas valley is a housing boom. The western portion of Henderson is the site of massive housing growth. There are at least 36 projects that have been completed or are on the books for the area. These projects cover over 1,000 acres and include almost 7,000 homes, according to a report for the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Some of the growth is industrial, including a 600,000-square foot Amazon distribution center and the Raiders practice center and headquarters. There are projects that include over 157 mixed-use acres that will include retail and a new manufacturing facility for Haas Automation.

The growth is expected to continue and even pick up over the next three decades. The population of west Henderson is only about 13,000 now, but is expected to explode to 63,000 by mid-century.

Housing, commercial, & industrial development is expected to cause the population to more than quadruple within 30 years.

There are a number of factors that make this area desirable.

One is that it's easier to get to the area from Southern California than the rest of the valley. This means that truckers can drop their loads in west Henderson faster than in North Las Vegas.

Another major factor is that there is still land available. Much of the valley is over-built or already spoken for, but west Henderson still has large tracts of land that can be developed.

West Henderson will continue to grow. That will bring jobs and money to the area, but of course, it's not all wonderful. It will also bring traffic and congestion to the area. Look for west Henderson to become a powerhouse in the state in the next couple of decades.

Six Simple Smart Home Additions

Smart homes are "the thing" these days. Many people want to enter the smart home market, but it can feel like a massively complex and expensive thing to get it done.

Here are six simple, inexpensive ways to make your house a bit smarter:

Google Home, Amazon Alexa, or Apple Homepod are the most common voice assistants around.

Video doorbell - The most popular smart item is the video doorbell thanks to the massive advertising of one company. Installing a video doorbell can be just as easy as sticking one on the outside of the house and linking it to your modem. Most don't even require any wires. It will then link to an app on your smartphone.

Smart thermostat - Smart thermostats are also similar. Using the existing wiring to your thermostats, you can get a device that links to a smartphone app and allows you to control all kinds of actions. Control heat and air conditioning remotely, schedule temperature changes, and much more. These devices can save a lot of money in heating and air conditioning by allowing you to have more control than ever before.

Smart outlets - There are smart and wi-fi enabled outlets that can be plugged into the wall and then controlled by your phone. This allows you to turn lights and devices on and off easily. It can save electricity by turning off ready lights, turning lights on and off to prevent crime, and much more.

Lights - Lights are one of the most wasteful items in your home, usually because people forget to turn them off. New smart devices will turn lights on and off on a schedule and will allow you to control the lights in the house. In the end, this can keep burglars away and save a lot of money in electricity.

Voice assistant - "Hey, Google." "Alexa,..." We've started down the road of having robots in our homes with voice assistants that can do many things that we used to have to get out of our chairs to do. They can make phone calls, control lighting, put certain TV shows on, and order pizza. This is the future and connecting these devices to our lives has gotten easier and easier.

TV - Our televisions no longer simply show us programs; they can help us surf the Internet, make video calls to family, and help us find that obscure 1970s movie we've been thinking about. You can use your smart TV to take college courses, watch cat videos on YouTube, and much more. Every year, our TVs get more complex and are rapidly becoming the center of the house's smart systems.

A smart home isn't a struggle. All you need to do is choose the parts of the house that you want to control. Most of these devices require no wiring and can be installed in minutes.

Make your home smarter, live better, and even save money.

Winter Checklist For Las Vegas Homes

Here's a very brief list of things that you can do around the house before it gets too cold.

1. Clean the windows - The winter sun can be wonderful. Clean the windows so you don't miss any of it. The weather outside will be more moderate and make it a lot easier for you to take your time without sweltering or freezing.

2. Get the heating and air checked - Now it the perfect time to get the furnace, air conditioning, or heat pump checked out. Filters can be changed and the system can be checked for leaks. It will only take about an hour for an expert to do it, but it can save you thousands down the road.

Home maintenance in a Las Vegas winter is easier than mid-summer.

3. New appliances - The new models are being released and the older models are being sold off. Watch for great deals over the holidays or stop off in the showroom to see what the dealers are selling at a great price. "Last year's" model is probably going to be perfect for what you need. Plus it's a lot better than waiting for the dishwasher or dryer to simply give out.

4. Time for a chimney sweep - If you have a fireplace, have a chimney sweep come and inspect the chimney and clean it. Even here in Las Vegas, the nights can get a little cold. You want to be able to light a fire without worrying that you're going to burn down the house. They can also do an inspection to ensure that the chimney is in good shape and that nothing needs to be done. You can ask that they check that your fireplace insert or wood stove is connected properly, as well.

5. Insulate pipes - Not a huge deal in the Las Vegas area, but go even a little way into the mountains and you might find yourself in a cold zone. It only takes one really cold night to freeze the pipes. Insulating your pipes is easy. Pick up pipe insulation at the hardware store and wrap it around the pipes. It will save on hot water heating, as well. In many homes, especially older ones, the hot water pipes are exposed to the outside air. The underside of the house won't ever get to the 120 °F that your hot water heater does.

These are a few of the things that you can do to winterize your home and get it ready for colder nights and the rainy season in the Las Vegas valley.
