Berkshire Hathaway Homeservices Nevada Properties

Illusionist David Copperfield has paid $17.55 million for a Las Vegas home complete with a movie theater and nightclub—and made an old price record disappear in the process.

The sale, which closed in late June, represents the highest price ever paid for a Las Vegas home, according to the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors.

Ivan Sher of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties represented both Mr. Copperfield and the seller, health-care executive Kevin Hooks.

Mr. Hooks bought the land for $2.575 million in 2005 and built the house, completing it around 2011. The contemporary home wasn’t officially on the market, and Mr. Hooks said he hadn’t planned on selling it for another few years when he was approached by Berkshire Hathaway. Mr. Sher, who was working with Mr. Copperfield and his fiancée, Chloe Gosselin, had heard that the property might be available and asked if he could show it to them. “David and Chloe had been looking for years,” Mr. Sher said in an email. “Nothing really spoke to them,” he said, until they saw this property.

The eight-bedroom estate is located in a gated community in the Summerlin neighborhood. The main house has four stories, including a roof deck and a subterranean garage with a detailing room. The house also includes a nightclub with a bar and dance floor, a gym, a wine cellar and a movie theater.

The roughly 1.58-acre property also includes guest quarters, a golf simulator and an infinity swimming pool.

Mr. Copperfield, 59, is known for illusions such as “vanishing” the Statue of Liberty and escaping from Alcatraz prison. He is currently in residence in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino David Copperfield Theater.

His other homes include a Manhattan penthouse and an archipelago of 11 islands in the Bahamas.

Create a Plan for Maximizing Your Investment

Strong economic indicators along with greater demand are two extremely important factors to look for when deciding to build your luxury home—whether you’re buying it for your personal use or strictly as an investment.

Why?

Because if and when you decide to sell your property, you want to be in a place where there is enough demand to be able to secure a premium price and return on your investment. Right now, Los Angeles is one of the few places in the country where these conditions exist in a strong enough fashion to lend confidence to smart building projects.

In fact, Los Angeles has taken its place in the list of “The Top 10 Booming Markets for Real Estate Development” across the country and comes in at number 9 in Moneywatch’s Top 10 Luxury Real Estate Markets around the world.
