Up Close and Local: Las Vegas Market Update Webcast
Going back to Spring 2020, Las Vegas appeared to be a local apartment market headed for trouble. However, the metro ended the year in surprisingly good shape, posting solid demand as well as an uptick in occupancy and rent achievement. While that’s good news, it’s questionable whether recent momentum can be sustained, given that the local economy is severely damaged and that the number of missed rent payments is unusually high. Join RealPage analysts for an examination of what’s shaping the apartment sector performance in Las Vegas and what’s likely to happen over the near term.
Discussion topics include:
- The Las Vegas economy and other apartment demand influences
- Apartment occupancy and rent change by product class
- Performance variation across the metro’s key neighborhoods
- Local construction activity
