Land sale prices continue to increase in Las Vegas as developers look to expand their market share. The Las Vegas Housing Market is up +/- 10.6% from July of 2016, and +/- 25.6% over-all in the last three years, according to The median sale price for a single family residence in the valley right now is around +/- $260,000. With inventory of existing product at a low, finding new ground to develop on is at a premium. This means land is in demand as home builders secure their market share for future projects.

Recognizing this trend in land acquisitions, Joshua “Tree” Barker’s expertise and knowledge lead him to track a property totaling +/-31.42 Acres, which was entitled for +/- 220 homes at the time. Josh knew the many challenging aspects presented in this deal, from easements to new entitlements, to off-site improvements and waterline agreements…all which few buyers had the capability to close such a deal. Pulling from his contacts, Josh brought this great opportunity to the largest home builder in the country, Lennar. Lennar, one of the most ground breaking home builders in Las Vegas, has over 21 projects going in the Las Vegas Valley right now. One of their closest projects, Boulder Ranch II, is a gated community starting around $253,000 for a 3 bed, 2.5 bath home that is close to being sold out. (

Previously called Encore @ Hollywood, Lennar closed December 18th, 2017 on the new +/-224 lot project off Hollywood and Vegas Valley Dr. Joshua “Tree” Barker with Fortis Commercial Advisors put seller (Acacia Credit Fund 10-A LLC ) and buyer (Lennar) together, representing Lennar in the off market purchase. By generating the right buyer for this acquisition, the deal was closed in two months with no hang-ups. This +/-224 lot entitlement will bring huge value to Lennar as housing inventors slim and home prices steadily increase.
