A tight inventory of homes for sale played a role in Las Vegas-area home sales falling on a year-over-year basis for the seventh consecutive month in December, according to DataQuick.

Boosted by both price appreciation and a trend toward more high-end transactions, the median sales price jumped to its highest level in nearly four years.

Up 8% from November, 4,476 new and resale houses and condos closed escrow in the Las Vegas-Paradise metro area in December. However, this was a 7.6% drop from the previous December, according to the data firm.

The median sales price for all new and resale properties sold in the Las Vegas metro was $145, 203, which was the highest level its seen since February 2009. The median in December was up 1.9% since November and spiked 26.3% from one-year prior. This marks the ninth consecutive month of year-over-year increases for the metro. 

This strong gain in the median sales price is reflective of price appreciation coupled with relatively low home supplies.
