Las Vegas creation of new jobs and low cost of living also has resulted in a positive gain in population for the local region. According to the latest research from the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, Clark County’s population jumped 2.2 percent in 2015 over 2014, equating to just over 2.1 million residents.

Employment levels a will be on the rise in 2016, The local workforce is expected to go up by 3.1 percent by the end of the year, creating 28,500 new jobs. In 2015, the local region increased in the number of jobs by 2.4 percent, mostly in the education and health services sector.

Las Vegas’ multifamily sector is expected to experience growth in average rents and occupancy rates through the end 2016 due to growing employment numbers and an increasing population in the valley pushing demand higher, according to a third-quarter report from Marcus &Millichap, a commercial real estate investment services firm.

Las Vegas’ average effective rents are expected to reach $890 for multifamily product by the end of 2016, an increase of 7.5 percent for the year over 2015, the report states. As of midyear, average effective rents reached $865, just over a 2.75 percent climb from 2015’s $823.25.



“The rates of household formation and population growth, particularly for 20- to 34-year-olds, have subsequently accelerated with Las Vegas far outpacing the national average,” according to the report. “The expanding population base of young, highly employed residents will provide apartment operators with a deep pool of potential tenants.”

Vacancy rates are expected to be driven down. By the end of the year, the valley’s overall vacancy rates are expected to fall 60 base points — equating to 4.6 percent total vacancy. In mid-2016, vacancy sat at 4.9 percent.

New construction in the past couple years has yet to affect vacancy rates, according to the report.

Nonresidential, overall construction costs increase

Nonresidential and overall construction input prices were on the rise in September, according to an analysis of the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Producer Price Index by the Associated Builders and Contractors.

According to the analysis, nonresidential input prices increase by 0.3 percent to an index of 105.4 in September on a monthly basis, while it fell 0.2 percent in August on a monthly basis to an index of 105.3. September was also the first month since November 2014 to have a year-over-year increase in the nonresidential sector.

“The rise in material prices both on a monthly and year-over-year basis is not good news for U.S. nonresidential construction firms,” said ABC Chief Economist Anirban Basu. “For roughly two years, declining energy prices had wrung much of the inflation out of the economy, allowing interest rates to remain low and the Federal Reserve to remain fixated on guiding the nation toward full employment. Energy prices are no longer falling. Moreover, wage and health care inflation are building, which could drive interest rates higher next year. That scenario is not good for real estate valuations and nonresidential construction.”
