According to a recent report by the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors, the median house price dipped below $300,000 in September. Sales were also off as inventory came up. Figured as a percentage, the drop was down 1.7% from September. The overall numbers are still good showing sales up 12.2% from October 2017.

A total of 2,686 houses traded hands last month, up 10.3 percent from September but down 9.6 percent from a year earlier. Also, 6,919 houses were on the market without offers at the end of October, up 12.5 percent from September and 44.3 percent from a year earlier, the association reported.
