Recently, I was appointed to a group of 50 Realtors in Las Vegas who were chosen to participate in a quarterly survey of the real estate market in the Las Vegas Valley. This group is a joint effort by the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors, the trade organization for real estate agents here, and the Lied Institute for Real Estate Studies of the Lee School of Business at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. Since there are over 12,000 Realtors here, I feel very honored to be included in this group. The official name of the group is the GLVAR – Lied Institute Las Vegas Real Estate Sentiment Survey. The goal is to get information from those of us who are working in real estate, representing buyers and sellers, by finding out exactly how the real estate market is moving based upon our specific experience. We have already participated in the first survey. Once the second one is done, we’ll be able to start watching for trends and see if we can be predictive of where the market is moving. I look forward to sharing the results of this survey with you.
