Mid-Year Review 2012


As we look back at the first six months of 2012 and assess how the market has performed relative to the same time last year we find that sales volume is down slightly, but pricing in many of the towers has gone up. Much of this can be attributed to a very active high rise market over the past two years which has worked through much of the distressed inventory and now supply is shoring up and with the continued demand we are seeing some upward pricing pressure and value building. As we continue to move past the real estate bubble, there is now a sense of optimism and we are seeing more and more vacation- and retirement-home buyers, looking not only to capitalize on the value opportunities, but for luxury properties to spend time enjoying the entertainment capital of the world. While the number of bank-owned properties has gone down, short sales continue to be a part of the collective inventory and are likely to continue for the remainder of the year. International investments are still a significant portion of sales capitalizing on historically low pricing and leveraging currency positions. The data on the following pages will provide insight into select highrise properties in the Las Vegas valley. You can always access current listings and information at VegasVerticals. com. We are always here to answer any questions and when you are ready to find that perfect property, give us a call.

Condotels

This segment of the market has shown resurgence in the last two years as the prices have dropped dramatically and have provided an excellent opportunity for people looking for a luxury vacation property while getting a financial offset through various rental programs.

MGM SIGNATURE

MGM Signature continues to be the predominant property of interest in the condotel market. With sales volume down more than 25% from the same time last year, it is primarily due to the lack of inventory rather than demand for the units. There are still opportunities to make key purchases in the three towers, but with so much interest at these prices over the past two years we are definitely seeing the tide turn and upward pressure on pricing. # of Average Sales Price Transactions ($)

TRUMP TOWER This classic and luxuriously appointed condotel is now seeing more attention, primarily from international buyers. The number of sales has more than doubled from the same time last year and the pricing has notched up as well.
