October Update 2018

Hey My Friends, 

What’s going up?  Home prices, inventory, and interest rates.

What’s coming down?  The amount of homes being sold.

What’s been way down for a while now?  The amount of short sales and foreclosures on the market.

September is the first time since June 2007 that the median home price has reached $300K, which is up 1.7% from August.

While prices are still increasing, the increased inventory will now give buyers more options and ease the rate of home appreciation.

The higher interest rates will unfortunately raise monthly payments, reducing affordability for some buyers; as a result they can only get approved for smaller loans.

Gotta love our Vegas market…..
