Las Vegas, NV, September 21, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- During Las Vegas real estate agent Tom Wirt's review of the Las Vegas housing market, he started with the fact that the Las Vegas housing market was one of the top cities effected by the recession. Foreclosure rates were through the roof and consequently many Las Vegas residents lost their home. The recovery of the housing market in Las Vegas has been gradual, but home prices in certain areas are rising to their previous height and the real estate market is thriving again. Below are the facts of the report given by Tom Wirt on the state of the current Las Vegas housing market.
In August of 2015, 2246 homes were sold in the Las Vegas housing market. This number decreased from the previous month, July, where 2517 homes were sold. The number of condos sold in August also decreased from July by 17. The decrease in homes sold can be affected by the start of school in August.
