Every section of the Las Vegas Valley has New Homes under construction. Depending on your likings there are homes around $150k usually condo and townhomes, then the skies the limit, you name it you can upgrade it in a new home in Summerlin, Henderson, North Las Vegas, the SW and NW. Typically if you’re buying a new home most people send an average of $70k in upgrades at a home priced around $500k. Which could include, flooring, cabinets, countertops, elevation of the home, extensions, lighting and electrical upgrades and so much more. It’s all about personal taste and money when it comes to upgrading a new home.
There’s lots of buzz about the Raiders coming to Las Vegas. Many bars/food establishments have claimed themselves as “Raiders bars”, I spent a lot of time downtown Las Vegas this weekend and already some places have started advertising for game day. As more information about these bars pop up I’ll inform you via this blog.
Vegas Golden Knights are always trending because they have done so much for the city. During the horrible event on Oct. 1 2017 the Golden Knights took charge and showed the community how much respect they have for the victims, their families and the whole community in general. So much love and gratitude shined through a really rough time here. The one year anniversary of Oct. 1st is coming soon. there are many events planned for all people to come together to support one another. I am sure the VGK will be a part of it all.
Weed, yes, we have legalized marijuana. Many travelers arrive in Las Vegas and head straight to a dispensary. Some people think Disney Land is the happiest place in the world, others believe Las Vegas is, Las Vegas is by far a big adult playground.

Yes, You have come to the right person to help you with your home purchase using Section 184. I have helped so many buyers with this program. Call Me anytime: 702.321.9383, Penny O’Brien
The Section 184 Indian 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.
Penny’s take about Section 184 Indian Home Loan Guarantee Program:
- Low Interest Rates: based on the market, it is not the applicant’s credit score
- Low Down Payment: 2.25% on loans over $50,000
- Lower Monthly and Upfront Mortgage Insurance than other programs. Nice, right?
- All Section 184 loans are reasonable and affordable, with reviewed fees and structured appropriately.
- Although America has seen a drop in mortgage lending; Section 184 loans, since they are guaranteed by the Federal Government, have stayed healthy and productive.
- I have amazing clients who have used this program and are extremely happy.
I am ready to help answer any questions you have. I look forward to hearing from you. Penny O’Brien @ 702.321.9383

So, you’ve got Fresh paint on the walls, professional staging and an asking price that ends in 999 — when you’re selling your home, you’ll do whatever you can to help it stand out and sell faster, as a seller you want every edge you can get. And on the heels of the popular Consumer Electronics Show in January, perhaps that edge is a smarter home.
Smart home features are designed to make homes more convenient, appealing, secure and energy-efficient — all of which are bonuses when you’re trying to sell a house, most Sellers who want to move their homes faster may benefit from adding smart features that make their properties more appealing to tech-minded buyers.
Here are six trending smart home features that might catch buyers’ attention and help sell your home faster:
* Keyless/remote entry door locks — Have you ever left the house and worried that you left the front door unlocked? If your home is equipped with a keyless/remote entry door lock — available from multiple manufacturers — you can use an app on your smartphone to lock the door from wherever you are. Some manufacturers make versions that will also send a text or email to your phone when the door opens. Locks that can be programmed with multiple entry codes also allow you to see who comes and goes and when.
* Smart lighting — From lighting automation that allows you to control lights remotely and wirelessly, to energy-efficient LED bulbs that can change color to match your mood and decor, lighting has come a long way. Some smart lights work in tandem with home automation systems to allow you to turn them on or off, or even dim them, from an app on a smartphone or tablet. Others require no communication hub and can be controlled directly from your mobile device. You can also put some smart bulbs on timers (using your wireless device), sync them with certain TV shows or movies, and integrate them with security cameras and thermostats.
* DIY security systems — Don’t want to sign a contract or deal with complex security systems? Install-it-yourself security systems are affordable and offer security features like cameras, sensors, motion detectors and alarms or sirens, without the need for a security service to monitor them.
* Smart appliances — The Internet of Things (IoT) — everyday objects that have network connectivity — includes a growing list of smart appliances. Many manufacturers are offering washers, dryers, refrigerators and other home appliances that can communicate with you — and each other — wirelessly. Many can be controlled remotely from your smartphone — so if you leave the house and can’t remember if you turned off the stove, you can check in and turn it off using your smartphone app.
While appliances aren’t always included in a home sale, they do make for interesting features that keep your home top of mind to buyers.
* Smart plugs — One of the easiest, most affordable smart home upgrades you can make is to add smart plugs to your home. These Wi-Fi-enabled plugs fit existing outlets and can be controlled from a smartphone app. Plug anything into a smart plug, like lights or a television, and you can turn it on or off remotely, track energy consumption, or even create an on-off schedule.
* Temperature controls — Programmable thermostats were just the beginning; today’s home temperature controls are even smarter. Like other smart home features, smart thermostats can be controlled remotely from your mobile device. You can program them to make automatic temperature adjustments and then use your smartphone to override the program like turning up the heat on a particularly cold day. Some smart thermostats learn from household behavior and adjust the temperature to meet your family’s needs and save energy, while others adjust based on the number of people in a room. And several can now be operated via voice-controlled virtual assistants.
So Many of these smart home features are surprisingly easy and affordable to install, Sellers who are open to the idea of investing a little money to possibly help get a speedier sale, may want to consider adding the smart features buyers will be looking for in 2017.
