The Ballen Group at Keller William’s total listing volume to date is $5,914,800. The escrows that The Ballen Group currently have pending amount to a total of $3,823,350.
Tom Wirt is known by his clients as being straight forward, hardworking, and caring. The customers’ goals are Tom’s number one goals. The Ballen Group team members will tell you that Tom’s work ethic is 2nd to none. Tom is the top producing agent on The Ballen Group real estate team for several years now due to his determination and focus on getting to the closing table. Tom specializes in Las Vegas Short Sales as well as residential real estate in the Las Vegas Valley, Summerlin, Southern Highlands, and Mountains Edge. Tom is not afraid to make a short drive to Henderson to help a buyer or seller in Nevada.
“Tom was fantastic to work with and he provided an exceptional level of service, communication, and professionalism throughout all transactions.”
Tom with the Ballen group did an excellent job with the house I sold. I chose them because of their good reviews online and it turns out those reviews were justified. Should I decide to buy again I will use them and recommend them to anyone I know looking to buy or sell a home.” Says previous customer Bryan Jakkola.
Not only has the top producing Las Vegas real estate agent from The Ballen Group, Tom Wirt, experienced a great last few months, but also the Las Vegas real estate market. . This is particularly true for resale closing prices. In April 2014, resale closing prices were up 14.6% from the same time last year, setting a new post-recession high. The median home price for new homes showed a 19.7% increase, when compared to the same time in 2013. New home closings by sales volume are down considerably from a year ago in both the resale market and for new homes, yet the price points are up by nearly 20% over last year.
Foreclosure volumes are also down in the Las Vegas area. Non-distressed closings accounted for the bulk of April’s sales, with 72.3% of closings in the resale market falling into this category. Bank-owned properties accounted for the next largest category, at 11.1%, with short sales following at 9.8%. The short-sale median price is up 27.3% over one year ago. Auction sales were responsible for the final 6.7% of April 2014 resale closings.
The number of available homes listed in the MLS remains basically the same. But availability changes when availability by price range is considered. Homes under $200,000 have an availability of less than 2.0 months, while availability of homes in the $200,000 to $300,000 price range is slightly higher, at 2.3 months.
When considering Las Vegas homes in the price range of $250,000 to $350,000, availability is comparable to the market availability rate, which currently stands at 2.8 months. The availability of homes priced over $300,000, currently at 4 months, reflects the difficulty many realtors are having in finding quality homes for qualified buyers, in more desirable neighborhoods.
Tom Wirt is greatly treasured at The Ballen Group. Each team member of The Ballen Group focuses on just one specialty for which they are directly responsible. The award-winning real estate team The Ballen Group at Keller Williams is known for its WOW factor experience. The team defines the WOW factor as “the experience provided to not just customers, but to all who come in contact with The Ballen Companies.”
