    Las Vegas Home Values are Increasing! Will you have an Appraisal Issue?


    Las Vegas Home Values are Increasing, What does this mean for you?

    The real estate market is moving so well, we are pushing the ceiling of value right now, unfortunately that means we may have some appraisal challenges. The great news is we are here to represent you and help your home overcome these challenges. Last month my team, alone, saw 3 transactions where the home value came in under contract price. $40,000-$60,000-$80,000 values lower than purchase price, means we get to settle for the lower price, or challenge the appraisal. We are challenging the appraisal and asking for an appraisal reconsideration. We are even filing complaints against appraisers. When a property comes in undervalue at a mere $5,000 under contract, it’s often a mistake or appraiser ego getting in the way. Our job is to sort through it and yield you the highest return possible when you sell your Las Vegas Home.


    The Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors “reported the median price of homes sold through its Multiple Listing Service during June was $220,000, up 10.1 percent from $199,900 one year ago. Meanwhile, the median price of local condominiums and townhomes, including high-rise condos, sold in June was $115,000. That was up 5.5 percent from $109,000 one year ago.”  Appraisers just don’t seem to get it. We are seeing issues because buyers are willing to pay what the contract says, while an appraiser doesn’t want to value the home for the current market.  The increase in value is great news for home owners looking to sell their Las Vegas home, as the market is appreciating at a healthy rate. Compared to June 2014, 14.2 percent more homes and 6.3 percent more condos and townhomes sold this June. There are fewer homes on the market than what is considered a balanced market, available homes in Las Vegas “for the month of June was 13,740, down 0.7 percent from one year ago.”

    “Compared to one year ago, total sales volumes in June were up 23.5 percent for homes and up 13.2 percent for condos.” With average days on market at approximately 60 days, inventory is moving quickly. It’s a great time to list and sell your Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Centennial Hills, or Summerlin home.

    1. Appraisers are causing appraisal issues. And agents overpricing homes for the current real estate market conditions. Appraisers were at fault in 2007 when home prices soared then collapses. But I’m not pointing fingers because there are other people who affect appraisals equally as much.

      • Matt, appraisers are regularly coming in with very bad, low appraisals. Demand is certainly raising prices and we’ve had 8 low appraisals in the last 6 months. On one occasion the appraisal came in $80,000 low and when the loan was moved, the next appraisal came in at value. There is no way, on a $580,000 property that values can be that far apart.

        I do not believe appraisers had any real effect on the 2007 market. The collapse is all due to secondary market securitization and loan products that were so risky that foreclosures were going to be obviously high when they were issued.
