In its biggest Las Vegas land sale in years, Summerlin developer Howard Hughes Corp. has unloaded more than 200 acres for a sprawling new housing project.
Hughes Corp. sold 216.4 acres off Town Center Drive and Tropicana Avenue in Summerlin for $135 million to developers who plan to build hundreds of houses. The sale closed last month, property records show.
Builders sold 1,619 homes in Summerlin last year, up 11% from 2020, according to separate reports this week from consulting firms RCLCO and John Burns Real Estate Consulting.
Both ranked Summerlin’s sales tally third highest among U.S. master-planned communities.
According to their reports, builders also logged 864 sales in Henderson’s Cadence community last year, up 1% from 2020; 741 sales in Henderson’s Inspirada community, up 25%; and 655 sales in Skye Canyon in the upper northwest valley, up 39%.
Meanwhile 1,025 new-home sales in North Las Vegas’ Valley Vista community last year, up 3% from 2020.
In Southern Nevada, demand for houses hasn’t shown signs of vanishing anytime soon, and builders are still pulling an increased tally of permits, indicating a growing pipeline of construction plans despite the industry’s headwinds.
A total of 1,293 new-home permits were issued in the region in November, up 28% from November 2020, bringing the year’s permit tally to 13,774, up 32% from the same 11-month period in 2020, Las Vegas-based Home Builders Research recently reported.
Builders also landed record-high sales prices multiple times last year. Buyers paid a median price of $444,677 for newly built homes in Southern Nevada in November, up 11.5% from a year earlier, according to Home Builders Research.
This marked the sixth time in 2021 that the monthly median closing price set an all-time high, the firm said.
