Las Vegas Nevada News on Home is Possible Summerlin, Henderson and first time home buyers

January 31st, 2018

Information from Home is Possible:

Kind of sad news actually,

Due to continued market volatility, pricing for the FHA/VA/USDA 4% DPA option has been unavailable in the market. As a result, The Nevada Housing Division will be temporarily suspending our 4% government DPA option. We understand the unavailability of this option may cause difficulty for some borrowers who were counting on the 4% DPA. With this in mind, any loans “Reserved” by January 31, 2018 will still be eligible for this option. Loans reserved beginning February 1, 2018 will not have the 4% government option. Unfortunately, we will be unable to grant exceptions to this policy.

We strongly suggest you consider offering borrowers the HFA Preferred Conventional loan product as an alternative. The majority of FHA loans will qualify for our conventional loan product which can be a more economical option for borrowers.
We appreciate your continued participation in our programs and ask for your patience as we continue to monitor market conditions.  We will make adjustments as needed to continue to provide the best down payment assistance programs for borrowers.

Thank you,
Penny O’Brien

Professionalism in Real Estate. Summerlin, Las Vegas, Henderson, SW and NW Realtors

January 4th, 2018

Hi there,

People obviously do not always appear as they truly are.  What profession are you involved with?  Are you secure in knowing what you’re doing or do you just BS your way through your day?

I am a Professional Realtor, one who is experienced, honest, ethical, educated and fun to work with.  What I’d like you to know is that there are so many agents with their license who have no clue what they are doing OR don’t care.  If I had a dollar for every time I’ve met someone and they said to me, I wish I would have known you when we were buying our house. Our Realtor SUCKED, Our Realtor was horrible.  I would be retired by now.

Let me please implement the importance of interviewing your agent.  Do NOT feel guilty by not choosing them.  Move on until  you find the right match.  Call me, I’d love to help you with your Realtor Needs, I’m not a fake it till you make it.  I know what I’m doing.  Let me handle all the stress of the transaction cause there is stress but my buyers and sellers seldom now because I don’t pull them into it.

Don’t hire someone who does this profession part-time.  Unless, that’s what you want someone who’s going to perform 1/2 of the time.

I can not implement the importance of this matter.  You will be very disappointed with when one the best times that generally happens in our lives, buying and selling a home.

I represent my clients throughout the whole transaction with care and professionalism.

Hello Summerlin buyer/seller,

there is an estimate of:  439 Single family homes, townhomes and condos for sale, of which means they are in ER status ( no offers ) and Contingent Status ( offer accepted )  Inventory in Summerlin and the rest of the valley, including North Las Vegas, Henderson, NW and SW.

We need more sellers.  It’s the time to sell and buy here in Las Vegas.  Many people are selling and purchasing another place, either bigger or smaller depending on their personal needs.  Many other sellers are selling their homes and just cashing out their proceeds and either renting, moving in with family or leaving town.

My experience with helping buyers and sellers in Summerlin, Las Vegas, Henderson and the rest of the valley is extreme.  I have Happy Clients and I have the experience you’re looking for in a Realtor, I’d love if you’d like to talk with my clients.  They are amazing people and I have nothing to hide as far as any negative experiences.  P

thank you for your time, Penny O’Brien with RE/MAX Excellence, I put the Excellence in Real Estate

Luxury Homes in Las Vegas, Realtor Penny O’Brien explains what “luxury” Real Estate Means

December 11th, 2017

Hi Everyone,
I trust you’re having a wonderful day! If you’re looking for LUXURY I can help you find LUXURY. Penny O’Brien with RE/MAX Excellence, I put the Excellence in Real Estate. 702.321.9383

When half the homes on the market are suddenly marketed as “luxury,” the definition of the word starts to not have too much meaning of importance to the word. “Luxury” real estate is defined differently across different markets, as property values, median resident income and area development varies widely depending on the metro area.  We all know a home in Beverly Hills that sells for $2.5 million may be called a luxury while some builders in Las Vegas, Summerlin and Henderson  are selling homes in the low $400’s calling them Luxury.

Within Las Vegas the median price home right now is:  ESTIMATES only:

The median home value in Las Vegas Metro is near $236,800. Las Vegas Metro home values have gone up a little over 11%.  The median list price per sf. in Las Vegas city area is $148. The median price of homes currently listed, in ER status and C, P Status in Las Vegas Metro is $285,000 while the median price of single family homes that sold is $244,868. The median rent price in Las Vegas Metro is $1,300-$1400 which is the same as the Nevadan median  price of around $1,350.
