Change Is Coming To Las Vegas Home Prices

After nearly a decade of constant home price growth in the Las Vegas Valley, home prices in August were flat versus June and July, but were still up 3.4% over the year before. However, in the resale market there has been a steady decline in the housing supply since October. If supply continues to decline it could lead to a higher increase in Las Vegas home values for 2020.

"If you look at a graph of our local home prices over the past 15 years or so, it looks like a roller coaster, soaring through the mid-2000s and then falling during the Great Recession before ramping back up from 2012 until now. If you look at it this way, I guess you can say we're coasting along right now," said Janet Carpenter, GLVAR president told KLAS-Channel 8.

Median townhouse and condo prices rose even more over the year before, 4.1%, up to $177,000 year over year.

Double digit growth has finally given way to more sustainable growth patterns in the Las Vegas area.

A major factor for the change is that there are more homes coming online for sale. New housing projects delivering new homes and some homebuyers deciding that they're ready to sell have steadied prices for the last several months, a trend that appears likely to continue.

Every month, new major building projects are announced. This is a change from prior years where builders who had been burned during the Great Recession weren't doing any major building. Now, after more than seven years of steady growth in prices and the local population, builders are beginning to see that they are likely to make money with new homes.

Local homeowners are seeing a market where they are probably going to get the most for their home that they can for the next few years. Growth in home prices will continue, but much more slowly than recently. This has those who were considering selling putting their homes up on the market, catching the prices at the crest of the wave and avoiding any potential shrinkage in prices.

Millennials Are Beginning To Enter Real Estate Market

In 2020, the largest group of Millennials will turn 30 years old and reach the home-buying time of their lives.

In an article published in Realtor Magazine, Mark Fleming, Chief Economist for First American Financial Corporation said, "Millennials—the most educated generation—have the highest incomes across their generational cohorts, even when salaries are adjusted for inflation."

As of 2019, Millennials outnumber Baby Boomers and are bringing unprecedented home-buying power to market.

Millennials differ from previous generations in that they are well-educated about home buying, lived through the housing crash of the mid-2000s, and are often purchasing their dream homes as their first home.

The largest group of buyers in the United States now are Millennials, finally outpacing the Baby Boomer generation.

At this time, Millennials can take advantage of softening housing market nationwide, low interest rates, and some fairly good deals on down payments.

For those considering selling, now might be the perfect time. Home values are still increasing, but that has slowed in much of the country. In some places, experts are warning that home values have peaked for now.

Available existing home inventories are still low in places like Las Vegas. Putting an existing home on the market attracts a lot of attention since there are not many around.

In short, now might be the best time to sell in the near future. A huge number of new buyers are entering the market and home values are near maximum.

Real Estate Wire Fraud Is On The Rise

The Scam:

A hacker intercepts an email from one or more parties to a real estate transaction that includes the wiring instructions for home purchase. The criminal then changes the destination bank and creates an email address that looks a lot like that principal in the transaction. The buyer's bank will transfer funds thinking they're completing a transaction. In reality, they're transferring funds to the hacker's bank account or some other place where the money will never be seen again.

In a recent court case, Bain v. Platinum Realty LLC, the US District Court in Kansas upheld a ruling that the seller's real estate agent was 85% responsible for the loss of a buyer's money.

The Solution:

There are a number of steps that need to be taken to ensure that no one loses money on a real estate transaction:

1. Buyers and sellers need to be advised from the outset that no money should be transferred by following the instructions in an email, ever! Buyers' and sellers' agents, as well as bank officials, need to tell the parties to a transaction.

2. Bank employees need to ask where the buyer got the instructions they're following. If it was not hand-delivered by their real estate agent, then the bank should refuse to transfer the money.

3. Everyone involved in the transaction should call the other principals anytime there's to be a transfer of funds. The bank should call the buyer's agent and the seller's agent and confirm transfer bank account numbers and amounts.

4. Buyers need to be aware that no money should ever trade hands without all the verifications in place. Sometimes, buyers will get frantic emails instructing them to transfer funds "so they don't lose their house", etc. No money changes hands without a complete round of verifications of everyone in the sale.

5. Every device that a real estate agent and/or broker uses needs to have state-of-the-art malware protection. It's malware that allows a hacker to intercept emails, copy and scam emails, and gain access to the entire process.

Avoiding almost every financial scam involves one simple tool: the telephone. Take the time to call the people in the transaction to make sure that bank account numbers are right and that the transaction is required. These calls can take just a few minutes, but can save hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Americans lost $150 million in real estate scams in 2018, according to the FBI. Real estate professionals are at the top of the list of victims of malware attacks.

With the increase of real estate wire fraud, here are some steps you can take to help prevent it.

2008 Housing Crash Still Looms In Minds 11 Years Later

The Housing Crash of 2008 still has everyone nervous. Toluna Research surveyed home buyers and the majority of home buyers expressed concern that there will be a recession soon.

  • 36% percent expect a recession to begin in 2020
  • 17% percent expect a recession to start in 2019
  • 14% in 2021
  • 7% in 2022

Just eight percent expect a recession in 2024. The remaining 17 percent weren't sure.

One statistic that is most important to any homeowner considering selling their home: 56 percent of shoppers will stop looking if there's a recession.

If you're considering selling your home in the next few years, you might consider moving forward now. The 36 percent that thinks that the recession will hit in 2020 are right, your window to sell your house might close quickly.

If a recession hits, more than half the customers might disappear in just a few weeks.

There are many economists who agree with the home buyers that a recession might materialize soon, but no one can agree on when it might start.

There is also a psychological factor in this survey. If correct, thirty-six percent of home buyers might pull back even without a substantive recession starting.

What does this fear of a recession mean for potential home sellers?

What this all means for home sellers

This survey is a bit of a warning. If you're considering selling your house anytime in the next few years, now might be the right time.

The biggest takeaway though is this: There is no reason to think that any recession that arrives in the next few years will be as bad as the last one.

There will still be home buyers. The economy will continue. There will probably simply be a slowing down of everything for a while.

When House Hunting, Don't Forget About Your Dog

Your dog is your best friend, your constant companion, and the family burglar alarm. They're also a major factor to consider when buying a home.

Here's a brief list of things to consider when buying a house as a dog owner:

1. A yard - Clearly, a yard is a huge consideration. Having a decent-sized yard for your dog to run is one of the major reasons for being a homeowner with a dog. A yard with a fence is even better, letting you relax a bit when the dog is outside.

2. Nearby open space - Having a dog park that's even bigger than your yard where your dog can socialize is another important thing to look for when buying a house. It can be a lot of fun for dog and owner to be able to pack up and head to a park whenever the mood strikes. It's even better when it's within walking distance.

3. A bathtub - A shower or a hot tub can seem like a wonderful idea, but you're going to need a bathtub for those dirty outings.

4. Cool surfaces - Hardwood, vinyl, and tile are important for a dog. In the heat of summer, your dog will need some place to stretch out where they can cool off and relax. You can still look for a house with carpeting, but having a variety of surfaces is important for your dog to regulate their body temperature.

5. Open space in the house - Dogs need to move about a lot. Having a large dog in a tiny space is a great way to get a really fidgety dog. Make sure they have plenty of space in the house as well as out. Look for a house with a large living room and even long hallways.

Every dog, like every homeowner, is an individual. What your dog needs might be different from the list. There might be things that aren't covered here that your dog needs.

Buying a home with a dog in mind is easy. Dogs love space and room to call their own. These guidelines can help make it easier to be your dog's human.
