Las Vegas Valley Market Report: Henderson Home Sales - 1st and 2nd Quarters 2014



The Las Vegas Valley Market Report for Henderson Home Sales shows an increase in Home Sales Prices from the 1st quarter to the 2nd quarter of 2014. The average price sold increased from $257,200 to $261,157, and the median increased from $217,983 to $220,500. The average sales price per square foot increased 3.02% while the median price per square foot increased 4.07%.

The Shay Hasselmann Group is always ready to help you with your home sales and buying needs at kate.shaylasvegashomes.com  .

An Overview of Henderson Home Sales is shown here:

Med. Days on Market (DOM):

2nd qtr. – 25 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.

Prioritizing Your Home Rental Search






It's time. You are ready to move into a rental home. A nice, clean rental home. Some place you can stay for a while. You have saved for deposits and moving costs, and have even asked around about neighborhoods and commutes. Let's do this.


Your expectations: $1200 per month. Perfect location. Updated kitchen with new appliances and fixtures. 4+ bedrooms with loft. Pets allowed. Sparkling private pool with pool service included.


Your reality: You need to prioritize.


First, shop within your budget. Your budget isn't negotiable. Everyone has a budget to follow. You know what you can afford, and so do property management companies. They have a formula they use to determine your approval and they will follow it. Your monthly rent should be no more than 1/3 of your monthly income. Do not fall in love with a home you can't afford. You will not be approved.


Second, prioritize. Now that you have your budget set, it's time to decide what's important. You should try to find the perfect home for you, but be prepared to make choices. Maybe you are able to drive a little further to work for more square footage or that upgraded chef's kitchen. The home office may have to go in one of the spare bedrooms. The kids may have to wait to get a puppy. Maybe a home with a community pool would be OK after all.


Third, contact the Tenant Placement Specialists with The Shay Hasselmann Group! They will create a customized MLS search to help you find the perfect rental home and will take you through the rental search process step by step and help make finding a rental home a little less over-whelming. The priority lists and choices? Those are still yours.

Rental Application Timing



Picture it: You are standing in an empty rental home. The carpet is new, the walls have been freshly painted, the kitchen is immaculate. It's quiet. It has most of the things you have been searching for (the right schools, a pool, allows pets, and below your max price), but you still aren't sure about the paint color in the 3rd bedroom.
You should think about it, right? This is going to be your home for the next year, maybe longer. You have some time. Maybe you should go grab some lunch and see what else is out there.
Maybe.
Maybe not.

Chances are, while you are having lunch and browsing the internet, someone else is standing at the office handing in their application and fees. In fact, they are probably scheduling their lease signing and negotiating the paint color in the 3rd bedroom, too.

The Henderson rental market is full of people looking for the exact same things you are looking for. It's competitive. If you love it, someone else does too. Or they will, because they are scheduled to see it next.

Relocation, whether it's around the corner or around the globe, can be stressful enough without adding the pressure of the competition breathing down your neck. The Tenant Placement Specialists with The Shay Hasselmann Group will walk you through the rental search process. We won't take you out to view properties before you're ready. We won't waste your time. When you follow our tenant placement system, you are prepared to make a decision the day you are viewing homes. When you make the decision, we will do our best to make sure you are the first in line to get the property you want.

If you are serious about moving and are serious about finding a rental home, The Shay Hasselmann Group will help you beat the competition. Contact us today!
