Median Las Vegas home prices stayed flat at $310,000, same as the month before, but 3.3 percent higher than in 2005.

Despite this, there was $955.3 million worth of sales in May. And while it marks a 15.4 percent month-to-month gain, it’s still 12.4 percent less than real estate sales 12 months ago.
