$5.10 per $1,000 of the sales price of the property is the amount for all of Clark County. I work in Mesquite NV where transfer tax is 'customarily' paid by the seller - but it is a negotiable cost that can be paid by either buyer or seller depending on what property you buy. Some new home builders refuse to pay it. If you are buying a foreclosure property from the bank, you will get a counter offer stating what the bank will or will not pay - but it is still negotiable. Your real estate agent should work up a net sheet based on your offer on any property and what costs you are agreeing to pay. That net sheet would be adjusted if you agree to different terms in a counter offer.

Guy is right. $5.10 per $1,000 of the sales price of the property.

Reno is nice, love the skiing in your neck of the woods Guy.

The real property transfer tax rate for Las Vegas (Clark County) is $5.10 per every $1,000 of the sale price. Compare this to Reno (Washoe County) where the real property transfer tax rate is $4.10 per $1,000. Move to Reno. ;)
