Forecast For The Las Vegas Housing Market

After another day of selling real estate in Vegas, I’m back at the computer blogging. You know what? I like blogging. It’s relaxing. Today, on March 21, 2023, as I was about to do my weekly update, I noticed that U.S. News & World Report released their Las Vegas Housing Forecast. Rather than doing my normal weekly stat update, I felt it would be MUCH more fun to give you a summary of their thoughts With that said, I can’t predict markets. If I could? I would have done it over 30 years ago when I first got licensed.

BTW – You can find the full version of their forecast at link above!
