Las Vegas makes list of top 10 real estate markets to watch in 2016

Las Vegas weighed in at No. 9 in the Trulia list of real estate markets to watch in the coming year — behind Riverside-San Bernardino, Calif., and ahead of Tacoma, Wash.

It was a combination of expected job growth, affordable houses (at least relatively, in the case of Riverside) and cool local places that attract millennials that seemed to work for most of these cities.

Las Vegas was no exception. Authors noted that there’s much more to Sin City than the Strip, including access to the great outdoors such as Lake Mead, the revitalizing downtown and art district, getaways like Boulder City and the best Thai food in the country at Lotus of Siam.

And the authors added:

“But the clincher for this big little town just might come from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, which expects Las Vegas to experience 4.8 percent job growth in 2016, crushing the national prediction of less than 2 percent.”

Here’s the complete list:

1. Grand Rapids, Mich.

2. Charleston, S.C.

3. Austin, Texas

4. Baton Rouge, La.

5. San Antonio, Texas

6. Colorado Springs, Colo.

7. Columbia, S.C.

8. Riverside-San Bernardino, Calif.

9. Las Vegas

10. Tacoma, Wash.
