Nevada Real Estate Market Trends & Analysis

Few markets had more ground to make up from the last recession than the Nevada real estate market. Real estate in Nevada was hit hard and prices tumbled to nearly one-third of their current level. Nonetheless, Nevada real estate persevered and came out on the other end better. After nearly seven consecutive years of appreciation, real estate in Nevada is starting to stabilize.

Prices are still expected to appreciation, but not at the same rate residents have grown to expect in recent history. Instead, home prices are forecasted to increase more in line with historic averages. Despite nearly tripling in price since 2012, however, Nevada has managed to maintain a balanced market that now favors everyone: buyers, sellers, renters and investors.
