LAS VEGAS (AP) - Southern Nevada home prices continued their steady climb in July, reaching $200,000 for the first time since August 2008.
The Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors reported Friday that median home prices ticked up a fraction of a percent since May, and have risen more than 11 percent from July 2013.
Association chief Heidi Kasama calls it a milestone, but notes that median home prices are far below their June 2006 peak of $315,000.
Area median home prices bottomed out at $118,000 in January 2012.
The total number of single-family homes listed for sale on the association's Multiple Listing Service in July was about 13,700.
That was down just under 1 percent from more than 13,800 in June, and just under 3 percent from a year ago.
