Las Vegas region June home sales climbed to the highest level for any month since December 2006 as more than two-thirds of all buyers in the resale market continued to snap up foreclosures. The median sale price held steady, marking the second month in a row in which it didn't erode on a month-to-month basis, as it had for 16 consecutive months prior to May, a real estate information service reported. About 70% of the Las Vegas-area houses and condos that resold in June were foreclosure resales, meaning those homes had been foreclosed on in the prior 12 months. That was up from 59% in June 2008 but the lowest for any month since it was 68.9% last December. Foreclosure resales peaked in April at 73.7% of total resales, according to MDA DataQuick. The San Diego firm tracks real estate trends nationally via public property records.
