American Dream Las Vegas Nevada. FHA, VA, CASH and Conventional FINANCING

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

Hi there,

What does the American dream of owning a home mean to you?  Here in Vegas, the Sin City Capital of the World.  The fun adult playground. The city with so much to offer. The City who has fantastic sunshine throughout the year.

Many first-time home buyers are afraid to purchase.  The truth is in most cases it’s better to buy then rent, and in most cases it’s cheaper.  Plus, you don’t have a landlord and others to deal with, IT’S YOURS!!!

A majority of my clients are first timers. I call them my Real estate virgins.  I absolutely love working with them.  If you are interested in buying a place, please give me a call and I can help you understand the ins and outs of buying.  I will become your Realtor for life.

Make it a great day!  Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383

Hi there everyone,

Once again, thank you for your time and checking out my blog.  This is a short and sweet blog, just like me, short and sweet.  I’ve been in the Las Vegas Real Estate Market for over 16 years full-time.  I’m honest, trustworthy, fun, professional, experienced, educated, patient and fun to work with.   I always answer my phone, I am respected by my peers.  I know what the heck I’m doing, I don’t fake it until I make it.  If you’d like you can speak with any of my clients, they will be honest and share with you their buying or selling experiences with me.  I love my clients.  They are totally amazing people.

I work with First time homebuyers.

Cash, conventional, FHA, VA, 184 HUD program, down payment programs, you name it I can help you with your financial information you may have questions with.  I am here with you through the whole process.

And, Sellers, there is no BS when it comes to selling your home.  I’ve heard agents for years tell sellers what they want to hear whether it is the truth or not and you know what they have no problem lying to the seller/sellers.  I’m not that kind of agent  just so you know.  I have Integrity, and lots of it.

Testimonials:   Here’s just a few words from some amazing clients:

Penny O’Brien has been my real estate agent for the past three months and just closed the deal on my Summerlin home. Penny has been a pleasure to work with, earning my respect and admiration for getting my family through the stressful task of selling a house. The time spent with Penny has given me the opportunity to observe a true professional at work. Her ability to get the job done, and done right has certainly paid off.

I am also a real stickler for well-documented paperwork and Penny certainly showed her ability to perform this task. Her paperwork was flawless, leaving absolutely no loose ends behind. Penny was also available at the most inconvenient times and frequently made trips to my home at all hours of the day and night. Simply put, I would recommend Penny to assist all of my friends and family when their real estate needs.”
– Warren Hensman, Summerlin

“Penny made the selling of my house easier than I ever imagined. She not only brought in a lot of traffic into my property, but she sold it quickly… at full price. I highly recommend her.”
– Michael, Summerlin, LV

Penny is the greatest. She was a great help in helping me understand all the paper work. I left it in her hands, I trusted her, and my house sold
within a week! I got every penny I asked for. If I ever move back to
Vegas, and am in the market for another house, she would be the first
person I called.

Financing a Home in Las Vegas, NV, Is a Pre-approval letter necessary? Cash? FHA, VA, HUD, Conventional

Sunday, January 22nd, 2017

Hi again,

Let’s be honest, shall we?  If you don’t have a pre-approval letter from a lender when you are ready to buy do you really think that a seller will take you seriously?  Think of it this way, let’s turn the situation around.  You are the seller, I put your house on the market and offers start flooding in.  Any one can offer any amount, someone could offer you a million dollars on a home valued at $200k.  It does not mean that the lender/bank/financial company is going to loan you a million dollars for the house.  They will loan you the appraised value, minus down payment amount depending on your loan type.  You’re probably not going to go to the market and pay $20 a pound for apples, unless they are gold plated.  Back to the pre-approval letter and buyers.

For the sack of being simple let’s say 2 offers come in.  One offer is at list price, we believe after doing our investigation on the property that it will appraise for list.  The second offer is at list and the buyer is willing to pay out of pocket an additional $20k cause it’s right next to their family and they have to have the house.  The first offer came with a pre-approval letter and is a sound buyer.  The second offer has no approval letter, you have no idea if this buyer is capable of purchasing your home or not.  There’s no evidence of funds.  NOW WHAT?  Obviously, we ask for the letter of approval but they tell us, don’t worry we are good for the loan, we have good jobs, have money in our savings, we’ve bought before, the bank will give us the money.  Are you going to believe them?  I hope not.  You have to be able to know at least at the time of their loan application that they were qualified for the loan.  Things can change between then and the time of purchase.

So, the moral of the blog is, if we are going to go out there and start looking for a home for you, FIRST things FIRST, let’s talk with a lender.  It’s important also to feel comfortable with the payment you will be making.  You may fall in love with a house that is totally out of your price range.  It’s all about preparing yourself for what is right for you.

What kind of loan will you be getting?  FHA? VA? Conventional, HUD or paying CASH.

Now, are you ready?  Let’s go see a lender and see what best for you.  You can reach me at: 702.321.9383 Text, call or email: GoWithPenny@yahoo.com

ENJOY LIFE, Penny
