Market Narrative for the Las Vegas Economy - October 2014

Published: Thursday, October 2, 2014

A good bet. Few of the nation's local economies reaped the recessionary whirlwind to the devastating extent seen in Las Vegas. While the return to pre-recession employment levels and the high rates of population growth that once helped animate the local economy and its housing markets remains a task for the period ahead, new favorable trends and conditions are indicated. Tourism, the lynchpin of the local economy, is driving the resurgence. Indeed, according to preliminary data provided by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), employment in the Leisure and Hospitality sector accounts for fully 272,100 jobs (34.8%) of total private non-farm employment in the local Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) as of August. Growth in this sector, a little slower over the recent period, remains positive: the 1,200 jobs added net over the latest August-to-August period brought employment in this sector to within 2,000 jobs of the August peak recorded for 2006.

Exciting Times for NVSAA! 
Introducing Our New Billing Structure


This is a very exciting time for us! We are offering more opportunities for our members than ever in key areas: Education, Legislative, Networking.

We are also creating ways to do business better. This allows us to build upon our foundation, and facilitate future growth.

The Nevada State Apartment Association is pleased to announce a streamlined billing structure for our membership. We are moving to a calendar year membership cycle where all members will pay their dues in January and enjoy membership benefits through December of that year.

The goal is to shift our entire membership to this more efficient billing cycle by January 1, 2017.

As such, it’s important to begin the process now. Handling membership in this manner is in line with many other Associations across the country and is design designed to minimize confusion on expiration dates and make the budgeting process easier.

Our goal is to make the transition as easy as possible:

If your membership renewal falls due between September 1, 2015 and December 31, 2015. You will receive an invoice that includes the remaining months of 2015 and all of 2016. Conveniently, your membership will be paid through the end of 2016. The remaining association members expiring in 2016 will receive prorated invoices to finish out next year’s membership. This process puts us on track to begin annual billing for the association, as a whole, in 2017.

Thank you for your cooperation as we make these changes! YOU are what makes the NVSAA the premier multi-family housing association in the region. Let’s keep going and growing!

If you have questions, you can reach me at 702.862.0165

My best to you,

Record-setting tourism and the strongest convention attendance in several years are driving employment growth and creating apartment demand Las Vegas. Job growth is well above the national average, spurring developers to complete projects that were mothballed since the recession. In addition, multifamily permitting is trending more than 60 percent higher as builders rush to keep up with demand for rental space. While more than 1,400 apartments have been completed during the past year, vacancy fell sharply and concession activity nearly halted on well-located properties near employment hubs. The leisure and hospitality sector is providing the biggest job gains in the economy, although more corporations are relocating to the metro due to its position as a travel destination and the lack of a state income tax. The new workers hired by these companies are choosing to rent in prime areas to the southwest of the city, close to shopping centers, freeways and the Strip. Single-family housing costs in these areas are above the metro average, spurring strong rental growth and pushing vacancy down. Tightening operations will lift rents up 3.4 percent this year, more than 100 basis points above inflation.
