Yes, you heard me right. If you really want to become familiar with your potential new home and communtiy I highly recommend checking out the neighborhood many times. Morning, noon, night and in the middle of the night. To some people that may sound extreme, but, really is it? You’re going to be living there for a number of years and yes, things change within neighborhoods. Houses get sold, people get pets, people become landlords instead of living in the dwelling. People die, get divorced, have more kids, maybe a business or housing community develops after you move in.
I always recommend to my buyers to check on the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Departments website, http://www.lvmpd.com and go to a sex offender site Watchdog.com. There are many ways to look into what’s really going on within the community. And, of course one of my favorite ways to find out more about the neighborhood is to talk with the neighbors. Most people are more than willing to talk with us about their community.
Now, if you’re buying a New home, then that’s a completely different situation as far as talking with the neighbors, what I love about new communities is that everyone is new to the area. You all become neighbors at the same time. You can build your community into a community where people know one another and it’s exciting to have new neighbors and a new home.
Whatever your Real Estate needs maybe I can help. I’ve been enjoying help buyers and sellers for over 16 years full time here in Southern Nevada and Did I mention I have the most amazing clients. Take care of yourself and please do give me a call, text or email whichever works out best for you.

Southern Nevada home prices started 2017 with a somewhat rare and exciting. The January jump while the number of homes available for sale continued to shrink the market is strong.
According to GLVAR, the median price of existing single-family homes sold during January through its Multiple Listing Service (MLS) increased to $238,000. That was up 1.3 percent from December and up 8.7 percent from $219,000 in January 2016. Meanwhile, the median price of local condos and townhomes sold in January was $113,500, up slightly from December, but down 5.4 percent from January 2016.
This is great for homeowners because they actually are gaining equity in their homes.
The median single-family home price in Southern Nevada two years ago at this time was $200,000. One year ago, it was $219,000, “and now it’s up to $238,000. That’s a pretty great increase. .
Las Vegas home sales have also been on the rise. There are many reasons for home sales increasing, including an improving Las Vegas economy, and of course many of you know that home prices that are still lower than in most parts of California and a local population that is growing by about 2 percent per year.
