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

Wednesday, 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

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

Hi there,

How do buyers and sellers chose who they are going to have represent them in their needs for buying or selling a home in Summerlin, Las Vegas, Henderson, Green Valley, the SW and NW and North Las Vegas.  I, Penny can help 702.321.9383  I can help with New and Resale homes, condos and town homes.

From my experience which is at least 16 years being a full-time Realtor, here’s what I’ve seen:

Referrals: referrals are awesome, most of the time it’s a win-win for both buyer, seller and the agent. Referrals can be from past clients, lenders, friends, co-workers, church members, the list goes on and on.

Internet:  Well, I can tell you I’ve received a lot of clients from my website and other Internet sites.  I blog about what I think is important to people and they enjoy reading what I have to say.  I’m a down to earth kinda girl who tells it like it is.  I don’t LIE to my clients and say things they want to hear if it’s not the truth.  Believe me there are a TON of REALTORS in Las Vegas and surrounding areas that will lie straight up to any and everyone.  I’ve heard the lies, I’ve been lied to.  YUCK.

Repeat clients:  I have the most amazing clients whom it’s hard to even call them clients become friends.  Really great friends who end up having a long time friendship worth having.

American Indian Home Loan Program HUD 184 Las Vegas REALTOR

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017

Hi there,

Do you have questions about this wonderful Native American Indian Home Loan Program here in Las Vegas?  I have answers for you.

Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383

Here’s a few in sites about the HUD 184 Loan Program.

Yes, you can buy new home construction, there are limits to the amount of purchase for buyers

Yes, You do need a tribal card or CDIB (Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood or Certificate of Degree of Alaska Native Blood)

A Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood does not establish membership in a tribe.

Tribal membership is determined by tribal laws and may or may not require a CDIB or may require a separate tribal determination of ancestry or blood degree.

  1. Your full name, address, telephone number and birth certificate, and marriage certificate.  (born 1940)
  2. Completed application form for CDIB card.
  3. Your parents full name, birth, death, and marriage certificate for both of them.  (You need both, after all they are your parents, so you need both of them to prove who you are, even if the Native American heritage is only on one side.) (born 1915-1921)
  4. Your grand parents full name, birth death and marriages certificates for both of them. (born 1890-1895) Now the research becomes harder!!  In many states there was no birth, death and marriage registration prior to 1900.  You can use tribal roll records, census records, probate records, baptism records.  Again you will need to know where these people lived and census records are your best source.  Except for Native Americans, who hid, lied, and avoided the census taker all together.
  5. Your great grandparents full name, birth death and marriage certificates for both. (born 1865-1870)
  6. Your great great grandparents, full name, birth, death and marriage certificates for both. (born 1845-1850

I have helped many buyers use this program and look forward to helping you too. Penny O’Brien

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
