Las Vegas Rental Market Report: Summerlin Rentals - 1st and 2nd Quarters 2014



The Las Vegas Rental Market Report for Summerlin Rentals shows an increase in rental rates from the 1st quarter to the 2nd quarter of 2014. The average rental rate per square foot increased 7% while the median rate per square foot increased 2.5%. The speed at which the rental houses closed (DOM – Days on Market) also increased 23% on the average, and 30% on the median. The Shay Hasselmann Group is always ready to help you with your rental needs at www.lasvegashouserenters.com .

An Overview of Las Vegas Rentals in Summerlin Rental Homes is shown here: 


Number of Rentals:
1st qtr. – 234
2nd qtr. – 273



Average List Price:
1st qtr. – $1,599
2nd qtr. – $1,847
Average Rented Price:
1st qtr. – $1,575
2nd qtr. – $1,832
Average Sq Ft:
1st qtr. – 1,916 sq ft
2nd qtr. – 2,063 sq ft
Average Rent Sq Ft:
1st qtr. – $ .82
2nd qtr. – $ .88
Avg. Days on Market (DOM):

2nd qtr. – $ .82
Med. Days on Market (DOM):
1st qtr. – 30 days
2nd qtr. – 21 days



What is the difference between Average and Median and why does this matter to the Las Vegas Rental market?
Average is the sum of the individual items divided by the number of items. Median is the middle number.
For example, we have 7 houses with monthly rents at $1000, $1000, $1500, $2000, $2000, $3000, $15,000.
When we add the rents together ($25,500) and divide by 7, we get an Average rent of $3,642.86. The Median rent is the middle number of $2,000.
As you can see, the reason it is important to know the Average and the Median rent price is that a very low number or a very high number in the group can offset the final number. In our example, we had a very high number which made an 82% difference of $1642.86. So it is always good to compare both numbers to get a real sense of what is going on in the market.

Revolutionary Website For Home Renters Launches In Las Vegas




For Immediate Release - 8/21/2014


The Shay Hasselmann Group of Keller Williams Realty Las Vegas, a Real Estate Team which is in the top 2% of Las Vegas Real Estate production, has launched a new, streamlined approach to help tenants find their ideal Las Vegas, Henderson, or Summerlin rental home. As part of this process, they have launched a new website dedicated to Las Vegas and Henderson house rentals at www.LasVegasHouseRenters.com.



With the upswing in the number of tenants looking to rent homes due to influx of new businesses, foreclosures, and new families to the valley, there has been a need to help these renters find homes, but few agents ready to help them.
Shay Hasselmann, team leader of the Shay Hasselmann Group, stated “Over 30% of homes today in Las Vegas are filled by tenants who are renting until they can purchase their ideal home. I want to help them find their perfect rental home as quickly and efficiently as possible.”
Typically home renters go online to look through a barrage of real estate sites, online classified ad sites, and try to contact a multitude of different people to get information on the homes they like. This is very time consuming and can take weeks to finish. Plus the renter has to give out their personal information to 10-15 people at times. With premium rental homes going quickly in this market, oftentimes the lone applicant may lose out on a desired home because they don’t know how to work through the system efficiently. Shay’s team, however, is a one stop shopping place where the tenants can begin their research at their new site, www.LasVegasHouseRenters.com . The team will then help them prepare the documentation, set up appointments, and can wrap up the deal in as early as 72 hours. There is safety for the renter as personal information is not passed on until a deal looks like it will close.
Using their streamlined approach, the Shay Hasselmann Group can close 30-40 rentals a month (compared to the average real estate agent of none to one). Property management companies have been happy to work with the team, as they bring fully qualified applicants to the table, and are working with professionals who understand the system.
Shay concluded with “When people want to rent a house, I want them to think of the Shay Hasselmann Team. We are always ready to help.”

Renting with the Shay Hasselmann Group



At 5:00 p.m, I received a call from a new client that had signed up on my website only moments before. I was in the process of sending them our rental questionnaire and I hadn't had time to hit send when my phone was ringing.


“Hello! This is Kate.”


“Yes hi. I know this is strange, but my husband is outside a home now. Can you tell me if it's available?”


“Sure. What is the address?”


After finding the home was available and vacant, they asked if I could meet them there.

Normally our schedules don't allow us to meet people the same day, but I was available. After some more questions to determine their motivation, I decided to head over.


In the time it took me to drive to the home (about 15 minutes), 2 other agents and their clients had toured the home while my client waited patiently. We had paperwork completed online, documentation ready, and submitted it on the spot.


The next morning, my clients had the house.


It is first come, first served in this real estate rental market. According to CNN Money, Las Vegas was just named one of the “Top 10 Cities People are Moving To.” There is stiff competition and the good homes go quickly. If it is clean, has a great layout or upgrades, and is in a desirable area, be prepared to work efficiently. The sooner you move ON a home, the sooner you can move INTO it!


Many agents use rental placement as a fill in to their real estate business, often times turning down tenants as clients or giving minimal help in the search for a rental home. We at the Shay Hasselmann Group actively look for rental clients and use a streamlined process that helps you move into your ideal rental home. In this sense, we are revolutionary in the real estate rental business.


The first step to finding the perfect property is to fill out our short rental questionnaire. This will give us criteria to create a custom MLS search and will send updates daily. When you see homes that interest you, make a list of the top homes which meet your must-haves including dimensions, amenities, and neighborhood. After the research phase, and neighborhood visits, the Shay Hasselmann Group will help you gather and prepare necessary documents, set up appointments, and close the deal once you find your new home.


Along the way, we will clarify any and all details to make it a smooth transaction. Feel free to ask any questions you may have so they can be sorted out ahead of time.


Be sure your agent communicates with the listing agent. I can't stress how important putting a voice to the application is. Sometimes a little relationship building goes a long way.


The real estate market may be competitive and it may be stressful to move - we understand that. The more prepared you are, the easier the process will be. When you find “the one,” you know.

The Name Behind Peccole Ranch


It seems I’m on a roll learning about the names in the Summerlin area. Since I live in Peccole Ranch, I thought it was time to learn the history if its naming.

Fittingly, the name comes from a gentleman named William P. “Bill” Peccole, who was a real estate developer, city commissioner, insurance agent, shopping mall developer, and a lifetime baseball fan. His love for baseball ran the range of a player in 1930s amateur clubs and Elks club, to being a coach, all the way to building baseball parks, including the ones at University of Nevada, Reno and University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Born December 18, 1913 in Stockton, California, his high school education was in Sacramento, but his college degree (history and physical education) was at University of Nevada, Reno. He served in World War II as a physical education instructor and left the Army with captain rank.

He married Wanda Lamb on January 24, 1953, with whom he had three daughters – Leann, Laurie, and Lisa. Bill and Wanda were activists in the community with involvement in politics, education, the arts, and community development. They developed or provided land for Peccole Ranch, Sahara West Library, Durango Fire Station, Charleston Plaza Mall, and Queensridge to name a few.
Bill Peccole passed away December 15, 1999, just two days short of his 86th birthday, though his name lives on in our Las Vegas real estate communities.
