las vegas homes: Las Vegas Home Buyers and Investors - Local Look at Las Vegas Real Estate - 05/18/09 05:05 PM
 
In my last post I talked about the 78.3% increase in Las Vegas Home Sales for April 2009. It was the 13th straight month of year over increases, and Las Vegas Home Buyers and Investors have been grabbing up the bargains. For first time buyers that qualify, they have the added incentive of the $8,000 tax credit if they close on their home before Dec. 1, 2009.
I also mentioned in that post that real estate is local, even on the local level. This is where you need to have a knowledgeable agent working for you, as unfortunately there are so … (4 comments)

las vegas homes: Las Vegas Home Gardens - Pictures of the Desert in Bloom and Ethel M Cactus Gardens - 04/30/09 04:17 PM
 
With a nearly year round growing season, Las Vegas has some incredible plants and flowers. Coming from the colder climates of the east, it was such a pleasure to see so much color and life throughout the year. No more cabin fever from the dreary days of waiting for spring to arrive.

Of course there are many familiar plants and flowers that grow very well here and last so long. That wasn't much of a surprise, although visiting well stocked nurseries and garden centers in late fall, and what are considered winter months in most places, … (6 comments)

I was out to preview a few homes for a client, so thought I'd share a quick glimpse of it. Rhodes Ranch is the 1500 acre master planned oasis in the southwest side of the Vegas Valley just off the 215 beltway. It's guard gated with amenities that include the R Club community center that includes pools and a water park, and playgrounds throughout.

las vegas homes: Las Vegas Real Estate Agent Horror! - 07/10/08 07:08 PM
I always try to do my best for my clients. As their agent, I believe it's my job to perform in their best interest in finding a home that truly suits their needs, and offers the greatest value for their particular situation. This becomes even more critical for my out of town clients. They may be unfamiliar with all the lifestyle choices and unique communities that can be found throughout Las Vegas, or simply overcoming the difficulties of home searching from hundreds to thousands of miles away.
Having made my own cross country move, I try to provide the type of assistance I would expect for myself. I spend … (6 comments)

las vegas homes: FHA Loans - Stoves NOT Required - 06/11/08 10:43 PM
With the REOs out there, it isn't unusual to run into home where the appliances moved out with the former owners. Unfortunately these foreclosure bargains are also in the price range of many hoping to use FHA loans. There was a general opinion out there that a stove had to be in the home for it to meet the minimum standards for FHA.
