CRISIS is coming to Southern Nevada builders, Many illegals have moved to Canada to earn a living leaving Las Vegas short on workers

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

This is what they said a few months ago.  If you plan to build it in Las Vegas if it’s a new casino, a freeway, or a stadium for the Raiders and UNLV the construction workers will come, officials believe.

Southern Nevada has seen lots of boom periods in its history. Another boom is now happening across Southern Nevada, with planned, proposed and construction projects underway totaling as much as $15 billion.

Labor Union 184   say “they will absolutely be able to complete the stadium project by the beginning of the 2020 football season”. That’s a big commitment.

And data suggests Nevada does not have enough construction workers to accommodate the timing needs of the stadium along with several existing and future major construction projects, including a Strip mega resort, two highway projects and a manufacturing plant.

Construction industry professionals have said the most acute shortage may occur among professionals and specialists, such as architects and engineers.

HI there, VA, FHA, Conventional and Cash Buyers, Investors and Section 184 Native American Indian Home Loan Program

as many of you know, I do keep up with all the new home builders and their construction.  When I was out yesterday previewing new home builders I came across a new tract home sales person who gave me a little inside information about a new community that is opening up.  As far as I can tell right now they are going to be the least expensive new home builder in town.

If you are looking for a wonderful place and want more information call me now so I can help get you into this area and price range before anyone else.

GEN SMART HOMES in Las Vegas, NV Penny O’Brien can Help 702.321.9383

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

HI EVERYONE,

I am using caps because this concept is so amazing.  Watch the video and see  for yourself.

GENSMART LAS VEGAS HOMES

As life evolves as things always continue to change this is something a little bit new to the market.  It’s called the GenSmart Suite.  Many times people chose a casita for extra guest/rooming space.  Maybe people like the idea of renting out the casita and making a little income.  Perhaps they have family members who are visiting for a long stay.  Maybe they have a family member who needs a place to live.  As we mature we need less space and actually don’t want the responsibility of having or owning a big home anymore.

How about the college student that needs a little more privacy?  Or, the newlywed couple who needs to save up a little money before they can buy their own place.

A GEN Smart Suite is perfect.  As you can see in the video it’s all a person really needs.  There’s a double sink, very nice kitchen area, a spacious living area and wonderful bedroom area.  I was almost ready to just move into this place.  Of course I couldn’t because it’s a model home and the new home builder may wonder what I’m doing.

I just really love the idea of the GEN SMART SUITE.  If you’d like more information about it please give me a call or text anytime.  Take care and Happy House Hunting to all of us.

Native American Indian Home Loan Program Section 184 HUD, Help is here

Friday, November 17th, 2017

Hi there,

Are you in the market to buy a home?  If so, give me a call to find out more information about a fantastic program. Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383 I can help  you right NOW.

The Section 184 Native American  Home Loan Guarantee Program is a home mortgage specifically designed for American Indian and Alaska Native families, Alaska Villages, Tribes, or Tribally Designated Housing Entities. Section 184 loans can be used, both on and off native lands, for new construction, rehabilitation, purchase of an existing home, or refinance.

The unique status of Indian lands being held in Trust, Native American homeownership has historically been an underserved market. Working with an expanding network of private sector and tribal partners, the Section 184 Program endeavors to increase access to capital for Native Americans and provide private funding opportunities for tribal housing agencies with the Section 184 Program.

To help and increase Native access to financing, the Office of Loan Guarantee within HUD’s Office of Native American Programs, guarantees the Section 184 home mortgage loans made to Native Borrowers. By guaranteeing these loans 100%, we encourage Lenders to serve the Native Communities. This increases the marketability and value of the Native assets and strengthens the financial standing of Native Communities.

take care, enjoy your day/evening. Penny

Section 184 Penny O’Brien, Realtor helps with buyers using the HUD Section 184 Native American Indian Home Loan Program

Friday, November 17th, 2017

I have lots of experience with helping buyers use this wonderful program.  Let’s get moving, Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383

Here we go,

The Section 184 Indian Home Loan program is a mortgage product specifically for American Indian and Alaska Native families, tribes, Alaska Villages or tribally designated housing buyers. Congress established this program in 1992 to facilitate home ownership in Native American communities. Using Section 184 financing you can get into a home with a low down payment, no mortgage insurance and flexible underwriting. If you are a potential home buyer, Section 184 is a wonderful product — thanks to the low down payment requirement of 2.25% for loans over $50,000. If your loan amount is under $50,000, your down payment is 1.25%. If  you don’t have to pay a mortgage insurance premium each month. Instead, a one–time, 1% loan guarantee fee can be added to your final loan amount. Our underwriters are familiar with the unique issues and circumstances that Native Americans face when trying to get a mortgage in Indian Country

Month-over-month change in selling prices for August 2017 Las Vegas and the United States

Friday, November 17th, 2017

Month-over-month change in selling prices for August 2017This is very interesting.  I hope you enjoy it too.  Moving?  Let me know how I can help with your Real Estate needs. Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383

This map shows each state’s month-over-month selling price for August 2017.  The light gray states, prices have gone up between July and August. This would suggest a seller’s market where buyers may face increased competition. New York and Wisconsin had the highest month-over-month price increases — both above 6% — likely indicating that their housing markets are gaining strength.

The full data lists the median selling prices in July 2017 and August 2017 for each state. The actual numbers can give some insight into the amount of inventory compared to demand from home buyers. Median selling prices are currently over $300,000 in many large seller’s markets including District of Columbia, Hawaii, California, Massachusetts, Colorado, Washington and New York. According to the data, District of Columbia had the highest median selling price in August 2017 at $510,099.

I have over 20 years experience working with buyers and sellers.

Honoring America’s Native People, Las Vegas Realtor, Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383

Thursday, November 16th, 2017
Hi there, I am here Honoring America’s Native People

National Native American Heritage Month, observed since 1990, gives Americans the opportunity to reflect, celebrate, and honor the Native People of this land. This year, we celebrate the 27th anniversary of this observance to marvel at their contributions to society, educate ourselves on their heritage and raise awareness about the challenges and triumphs they have endured throughout history.

Native Americans have contributed vastly in the arts, sciences, education, civic leadership, and engineering, just to name a few. They have served and continue to serve in our Armed Forces, pioneered many of our medical and vocational innovations, leading many of the environmental activism being carried out today.

Did you know? There are over 550 federally recognized tribes in America today and currently about 4.5 million Native Americans living in the U.S.

obtaining a NADL, law requires that:

  1. The applicant must be an eligible Veteran.
  2. The tribal organization or other appropriate Native American group must be participating in the VA direct loan program. The tribal organization must have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, that spells out the conditions under which the program will operate on its trust lands.
  3. Apply for the Certificate of Eligibility.
  4. The loan must be to purchase, construct, or improve a home on Native American trust land.
  5. The Veteran must occupy the property as his or her primary residence.
  6. The Veteran must be a satisfactory credit risk
