A survey showed that 58% of business owners in Las Vegas, Nevada, believe that the economy of the city will improve in 2011. However, most of them also stated that the economic performance of the metro area will hinge largely on how the housing market performs. Some respondents stated that cutting down foreclosure supplies by investing in repo properties will help.

Majority of local businesses believe that 2011 will produce some economic improvements, albeit at a slow pace. They also stated that 2012 is when significant strides towards recovery will be made. Executives in the city asserted that the huge supply of Las Vegas repossessed properties and foreclosures will continue to weigh down the economy and not until 2012 will these properties diminish in number.

Aside from an oversupply of foreclosures and Nevada repossessed homes, business owners and executives also cited the difficulty in securing loans as a factor that will hinder the economic recovery of the region. According to them, the fact that small companies are finding it hard to secure financing might prevent the metro area from achieving economic recovery this year. Most of them also stated that the tourism business should improve for the economy to recover.

When it comes to the housing market alone, more than 75% of those surveyed believe that it will take five years at least for the housing industry to improve. Unless investing in repo properties and foreclosed homes pick up considerably this year, the metro area is reportedly looking at half a decade before the property market can start regaining its balance.

Not a lot of city residents expressed confidence that Las Vegas will return to its housing boom era. According to them, the market has been hit hard with the region's repossession property and foreclosed home numbers recording their highest tally in the whole U.S. They believe that small improvements will happen each year, but the market will never be like it was prior to the foreclosure crisis.

Meanwhile, prices of residences are not expected to rise until after two years, and this expectation is still dependent on whether the supplies of homes will be cut down by investing in repo properties and foreclosures. Executives agree that tourism will likely improve faster than the housing sector.
