If we look at the Cal to Nevada relocation data, it states there were 27,625 relocations and if 10% were high-net-worth individuals, that totals 2,762. In our opinion, there are less than 1,000 residences in the city of Las Vegas that are desirable to high-net-worth buyers. Furthermore, the timeframe to build large, custom homes can range 3-4 years, and no new luxury condo projects are being built for the foreseeable future.

We believe the restraints on supply and increased demand will result in upward pressure on pricing.
