The glitz and glamor in Las Vegas isn’t limited to the neon jungle of The Strip.
The market for Las Vegas luxury homes is as hot as the summer sun, and some of the most fabulous homes you can find anywhere are up for grabs.
These breathtaking properties are available in all parts of this sprawling desert city of 635,000, which has exploded in population and popularity during the last several years.
Some of these incredible mansions look more like resorts shimmering under the desert sun, featuring every amenity imaginable, including swimming pools and lush landscaping.
If you are interested in searching for Las Vegas Luxury homes, the first step is to find a seasoned real estate agent who knows how to secure one of these mega properties. A good agent knows how to help clients navigate the process, including outlasting others in a bidding war for a dream home. Also, be sure to have financing lined up for what will be the biggest purchase of your life.
While some of these ultra-luxurious homes go for tens of millions of dollars, even homes in the $1 million range have been snapped up during the pandemic. In addition, real estate experts say there has been an influx of people moving to Las Vegas to escape crowded urban centers in states like neighboring California, where the real estate dollar doesn’t go nearly as far as it does in Nevada.
Sales of million-dollar homes surged at the height of the pandemic, as did the sales of custom lots where people can have their dream homes built. Among them was Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis, who sold one custom lot for $10.5 million and then turned around and purchased a six-acre lot in Ascaya for $6 million. Davis, who moved his team to Sin City before the 2020 season, has a custom home built.
Real estate experts say the Las Vegas luxury homes market is so strong that there is a $12 million, Mediterranean-style mansion under construction in Southern Highlands on spec. It has been described as being more than 18,000 square feet on just more than one acre. It will have nine bedrooms and 12 bathrooms.
