Home Builders Research President Andrew Smith said look for the southwest valley to continue to be a strong location for homebuilding in 2019 based on land purchases.

Homebuilders spend nearly $700 million for more than 200 closings for more than 200 acres in Clark County, Smith said.

“The southwest submarket will continued to lead the area in terms of sales and number of communities in 2019 as roughly 30 percent of these transactions took place in that area,” Smith said. “We count about 30 different homebuilders that have closed on either raw land or individual lots.”

DR Horton and Lennar were the most active purchasers accounting for about 10 percent of the overall number of closings, Smith said.
