I love September weather. October too!

Sorry I’ve been away for a minute. Content marketing is commitment marketing. It takes a lot to commit to doing it over and over again! I’m learning. And the bonus is my offline efforts are aligning with the online to keep it all more manageable for me into the future.

Today is Tuesday, October 17, 2023. The third quarter has come to a close. The market continues to find its balance with changing conditions, largely due to the FED rate hikes. Now at a 23-year high, interest rates are keeping buyers on the sidelines. Sellers are on the sidelines too because when you have a 3% or lower interest rate, who in their right mind wants to trade that for 8.0%? It’s a daunting number, especially when faced with slim pickings.

This report is deep dive into the sells recorded over the previous 90 days. In it are 372 single-family, residential, real estate sales transactions with a million-dollar minimum list or sales price.

Okay, let’s get into it!

breaking down the sold gold


There were 372 sales posted for single-family residential properties featuring a minimum price tag of $1,000,000 right here in Southern Nevada over the previous 90 days. Of the sales posted 1 was distressed, 32 were zoned for Coronado High School, 71 featured a Strip view, 96 were sold in Henderson, 131 were sold in Summerlin, and 154 were built inside of the last 10 years.

drill down deeper

I just reviewed the data for my featured neighborhoods, which are sought-after subdivisions scattered across MacDonald Ranch and McCullough Mountain Range. Here are some highlights:

All in all 18 homes sold in the combined and featured subdivisions over the previous 90 days. The average price was $1.78m and the average $P/SQFT was $462. The average days on the market was 49.

Eleven of the 18 homes sold were single story. 8 had pools. 100% were gated with 10 being guard gated. 6 had views and half paid cash. Those with a Strip view sold on average for between $682 to $893. Those without a Strip view sold faster at 34 days for an average price per square foot of $352 with a high of $555, and they took a little longer to sell at 79 days on market. Not a single distressed sale showed up. Single-story homes showed $610 P/SQFT on average over 51 days. Homes featuring 2 or more floors sold 10 times faster on average and at an average of $368 P/SQFT. 3 were townhouses. 1 was furnished. 15 had a ¼ lot or smaller. Sellers got 95.5% of their asking price on average.

  • Purchase mortgage apps were down 2% for the week and 27% behind last year’s pace.



  • Consumer confidence dropped to a 4-month low in September, as consumers continued to feel the pressure of inflation.

  • Supply: 2.4 Months
  • Median Home Price: $447,435

geographically speaking


I live in the 89012 zip code in a quaint, gated neighborhood inside Green Valley Ranch. There are 100 homes on the market in this zip code. The median list price is $1.878m. It’s a slight sellers advantage. 35% of listed homes have reduced their asking price. Almost 16% of the listings were re-listed. On average it takes 186 days to sell. Price P/SQFT is $399. The median rental rate is $2,475 per month.



Land is in not in demand like it was. Prices softened when referencing Colliers Q1 and Q2 Commercial Market Reports on land. For Office It shows the office average rate increased from Q1 to Q2, topping out at $2.5 P/SQFT and 11% vacant valley wide. Office isn’t falling off a cliff or being relegated to repurposed uses for housing and hospitality, though it is changing. Industrial warehouses still rule the day. Multifamily is peaking with a total of 19 new apartment complexes coming to the market now or soon with 7,000 units. Land prices peaked last summer and simmered in Q1 of 2023. Capital is more expensive than it was. Demand for land may be down because demand for building multifamily is down too, due to the higher cost of project funding and financing. That said, if you have the resources to build out of your pocket, do it! The market will gobble up all the supply you can bring it. The sooner it’s here the sooner it will fill up. Built to rent is America’s new solution to the growing need for housing. Cap rates are good on office and retail.
