Spain is planning to scrap its golden visa program, which had granted residency rights to non-EU citizens who make sizable real estate investments in the country.

Home prices and real estate transactions ticked up across Sweden in March, suggesting that slowing inflation and an expected interest rate cut is boosting the recently ailing market.

Las Vegas Home Prices Are Rebounding

Home prices in Las Vegas are bouncing back after a sluggish 2023, pushed up by a shortage of stock. The median price of single-family homes sold in Southern Nevada last month was $465,000, according to Las Vegas Realtors, up from February’s $460,000, and 9.4% higher than March, when the median price was $425,000. “Although prices have been rising recently, they’re still below the all-time high we hit in 2022,” said Merri Perry, president of Las Vegas Realtors. “One of our biggest issues continues to be our housing supply. As we’ve been saying for a long time, it would help our local housing market if we had more homes to sell.” News 3 Las Vegas
