A Place to Call Home: Nevada’s Residential Housing Market
By Jennifer Rachel Baumer
In southern Nevada, between 13,000 and 14,000 new home permits have been pulled in 2021, up 11 percent from 2020, said Nat Hodgson, CEO, Southern Nevada Home Builders Association (SNHBA). “We thought we were going to get about the same as last year, so an 11 percent increase when we were factoring zero is pretty good. We’re actually tracking over 14,000 right now, but I don’t think we can build them, so I’m trying to be conservative.”
“Builders are pulling permits faster than they have for quite a while,” said Forrest Barbee, corporate broker, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties. One resource showed 1,200 pulled in July, and they’re closing more homes than closed in 2020. At the heart of the pandemic, as unemployment rose, southern Nevada builders experienced a 40 percent cancellation rate on contracts in new developments. “Even though they closed over 10,000 new homes, they still had about a 30 percent cancellation rate on contracts last year.”
Then something changed. If homes were built, they were absorbed. The absorption rate in southern Nevada is now better than 100 percent.
