The Owner and Broker of Luxury Homes of Las Vegas Kenneth Lowman said that the month of September was a somewhat concrete-month in-relation to the present market situations, and had a total of 19 luxury home sale close last September compared to only 17 for September of 2009.
The luxury real estate market stays difficult, but it is still experiencing sales for luxury properties.
Lowman also stated that the luxury real estate market has both the negative and positive signs—the positive signs are the present cheap price rates which are drawing buyers, and the negative sides are bank foreclosures in the current luxury real estate market that could maintain the price rate in this low-level.
According to the report, roughly around 10 percent of luxury home sale for above $1 million are now foreclosed by banks, but its percentage is lower in contrast to the general luxury real estate market.
