Why Buy Las Vegas Condos and Town Homes for Sale Now?

During the heady days of 2006, you’d need a median $200,000 to get into a Las Vegas condo or town home, according to Zillow. Values dropped precipitously after that to a low of about $60,000 in early 2012.

As of this posting, the median value of a condo has bounced to $79,900, up almost a third in the 12 months ending July 2013. This number consists of the estimated value of properties that are not on the market and those for sale.

  • The median list price for a condo is $90,000, up more than 20 percent for the year. The median sale price is $90,300, up almost a third. Note how sellers are getting slightly more than they asked for from eager homeowners-to-be.
  • The lowest median sale prices are in Sunrise Manor at $51,500. The highest are on The Strip at $294,600.
  • The biggest yearly gain is in The Lakes at 169 percent to $198,800. The smallest gain is in Michael Way at 2.7 percent to $56,500.

If these prices don’t convince you to invest in the ever-rising prices of a condo, how about the affordable interest rates? Assume that you’re interested in a condo worth $90,000, have a great credit score of 740 or above, and want to put down 20 percent with no points. Here’s what you can expect to pay, according to Bankrate: (click the link and be sure to tell Spencer Valerio you are working with Alan Taylor)
