Weekly LV New Home Sales Update

After the worst statistical week of 2018, the new home segment of the Las Vegas housing market rebounded for the week ending July 29th.

The nineteen homebuilders tracked in the Weekly Traffic & Sales Watch reported just under 190 net sales for the week and nearly 4,300 perspective buyers visiting sales offices.  These figures remain slightly lower than average for 2018 but should still be considered a "good" week given the sub-par numbers reported for w/e July 22nd as well has the blistering heat.  

This is our final reporting week for July and early totals show it to be the lowest total of net sales for any month thus far in 2018.  

Homebuilders reported the fewest net sales of the year in July

Looking at average sales per project, American West Homes, Century Communities, Harmony Homes, Shea Homes, and Woodside Homes reported strong numbers and the overall cancellation percentage dropped back down to under 17 percent.  There were no newly opened subdivisions reporting this week.

LV Weekly New Home Market Update

For the week ending July 22nd, the new home segment of the Las Vegas area housing market had its worst performing week of 2018 when looking at both overall and average net sales.  The overall total of 154 and the average net sales per subdivision figure of 0.6 were by far the lowest we have reported since the last week of 2017 in The Weekly Traffic & Sales Watch.  After posting strong numbers for the entire calendar year, it will be interesting to see if this past week is an anomaly, or if it is the start of a new trend.

DR Horton led all builders with over 30 net sales, over 20% of the overall total.  Their "Windwood" project just inside the beltway in the southwest was the top performing subdivision along with the Terraces at Hidden Hills collection by Touchstone Living in the northwest.  Each reported six net sales.  Half of the top 10 selling projects for the week were located in the southwest sub-market area.

DR Horton also reported one of the two new projects in the report with Serenity Bay, another of their "Express Homes" products located just north of the Southern Highlands MPC with 31 detached lots.  The other new project is the reboot of Mira Villa in Summerlin by Toll Brothers.  Located near the JW Marriott just south of Summerlin Pkwy., this luxury condo community has 103 lots with an average base asking price of $683,000.

Four projects shared the distinction of top sales performer this week, two in the southwest, one in Mesquite, and one in Pahrump.  Of these four, one was also among the group of five new projects in The Weekly Traffic & Sales WatchRainbow Crossing Luxury from American West Homes is located within their Coronado Ranch master plan and has base prices ranging from $341,500 to $496,500.

Beazer Homes is expanding their Pahrump offerings, building off their huge success there over the past two years.  Burson Ranch Enclave offers homes from 2553 to 3703 square feet with base prices under $300,000.

Las Vegas Weekly New Home Market Update

For the week ending May 27, 2018 new home sales slowed slightly from what we have been reporting for most of 2018.  The average number of net sales per reporting subdivision in our Weekly Traffic & Sales Watch dipped to a level we haven't seen since early January.  Buyer traffic however did not show the same behavior and stayed steady.  Also, the cancellation rate dipped back down to just a hair above 11% (which is good).  The chart below shows the weekly cancellation rate going back six months:
