Do you think that the Las Vegas real estate market has "bottomed-out?"

The article, Economist pokes holes in 'shadow inventory' theory, from the Las Vegas Review Journal, reports that a North Carolina-based economist with Wells Fargo Securities dropped a surprise on the audience during a Thursday housing forum at The Orleans when he called the potential for a big inventory of empty or repossessed homes waiting to flood the market a “phantom idea. Nevada’s foreclosure rate took its first big, recent dive in October, when the state’s Homeowners’ Bill of Rights took effect.

While inventory may be low there are still properties to be sold. Many sellers and buyers are pre-occupied with the holidays. It's a perfect time to swoop in and find a great home at a great price.
