|Where do you want to live?|
|Renting ties you down until your lease expires and you’re free to move. But moving can be a hassle – a huge hassle – and that’s one reason why renters often become buyers.Do you really want to live in a place where you may be forced to move because your landlord wants to move in? It could happen; just ask your friends.When you buy, you buy more than a house. You buy a lifestyle. Backyards. Pets. Great neighbors. Block parties. Community. A sense of belonging. The list goes on and on.
It’s simple: living on a street with other homeowners is different – and often better – than moving again and again. It’s more lasting. More solid. More secure.

1. Square footage= SF
Like the story of Goldilocks and the 3 bears: Too small and you might quickly outgrow your new space. Too big can mean unnecessary energy bills and money spent furnishing space you never use. Too much space to clean in my opinion.
2. Drive time
Be sure your daily commute won’t leave you sitting in traffic, rethinking your relationship with your house. Consider driving to work from your potential home a couple times during rush hour to make sure you know what you’re getting into.
3. Walking distance
Being able to walk, bike or hike to shops, restaurants, parks and public transportation can really boost your quality of life.
Does the neighborhood include features that you feel are critical to your particular lifestyle, like yoga studios, late night takeout options or a safe playground for your kids and or your pets?
5. Planes, trains and automobiles
If you travel frequently, be sure you love how close your potential new home is to the airport, main highways or public transportation. Not a fan of planes flying overhead – or late night trains? Keep that in mind when checking out areas as well. We have a disclosure for that. 😉

Hi there everyone,
Happy St. Paddy’s Day
The Planter’s Daughter
When night stirred at sea
And the fire brought a crowd in,
They say that her beauty
Was music in mouth
And few in the candlelight
Thought her too proud,
For the house of the planter
Is known by the trees.
Men that had seen her
Drank deep and were silent,
The women were speaking
Wherever she went –
As a bell that is rung
Or a wonder told shyly,
And O she was the Sunday
In every week.

The largest municipality by population in Nevada is Las Vegas.
Las Vegas is the most populous city in NV and an internationally renowned resort city known for gambling, shopping, fine dining and its nightlife, Red Rock Canyon, Mt. Charleston, low housing prices and beautiful weather. Also known as the Entertainment Capital of the World, Las Vegas is quickly transforming into a popular family and retirement city as well and it is now the 31st most populous city in the state. In 2016, the city has an estimated population of over 600,000 residents.
The population does not include North Las Vegas, Henderson or Green Valley. Summerlin is considered Las Vegas, it has not become it’s own town per-say.
When deciding to move to Las Vegas and you’re not familiar with the Valley, give me a call. I can help show you around and help you decide on what location works best for you. I have lived here in Las Vegas for over 18 years and have been helping buyers and sellers buy and sell homes for 17 years full-time I love helping others. Please give me a call, text or email so we can sit down together and discuss your questions.
Enjoy your life, Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383 GOWITHPENNY@yahoo.com
The 2010 Census placed the population of Las Vegas at 583,756, but its population in 2016 is estimated at 623,747.
March, can you believe it’s already the month of the Irish Jig? I’m so excited about St. Patrick’s Day. As you know, my last name is O’Brien so I’m IRISH and very proud of it. My great Grandparents did move from Ireland many years ago due to the potato famine, they moved to Iowa, I moved to Las Vegas in 1997. I can’t imagine how stressful those days had to be.
This day in age people are still going hungry, which I can’t imagine that either. With all of the wealth in the world really how can be ignore and turn on heads to hunger? We can look away but we can also be fully present and still and notice how others are suffering. I’ve tried going hungry, I mean really hungry. I couldn’t sleep, I was cold all the time, I was tempted to eat because I knew food was available and I wouldn’t starve. It’s rough and awakening at the same time.
I didn’t mean to be a downer in this blog, it just happened and really was I being a downer or stating the truth.
If I was blessed with bagful of gold, I hope I could share my story of sharing and caring for others. I do try to help out but I know I am truly not doing enough.
Have a blessed day,

Below you will see an picture of two water heaters. They were in a home I just sold. The solar panels are on the roof. The seller said he paid at least twice as much for a solar heater than what a standard heater would have cost. With the abundance of sunshine here in Las Vegas it makes sense to use solar power as much as we can. The Seller always had hot water when wanted and a lot of it. We all know that water heaters can take a little time to warm up and get the warmth going to the shower. And, It looks like with these two heaters you could take a very long warm shower. I don’t sell water heaters, I sell house but I think it is definitely a good idea to check into a solar heater, especially if your old heater just went out and you are in the market for a new one. Enjoy your day. Call, text or email me any time, Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383 GOWITHPENNY@yahoo.com
I hope you enjoy this little treat I found on President’s Day while hiking near Red Rock Canyon here in Beautiful, Sunny Las Vegas. We had just received a couple days of heavy rainfall, so, I am guessing this is part of the beauty that came along with the rain. The sound of this running water is so amazing. This is rare for Las Vegas.
Take care, your friendly Las Vegas Realtor, Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383 RE/MAX Excellence, GOWITHPENNY@yahoo.com
Morning, Noon and Night in Las Vegas housing market, Check out your potential neighborhood first. New home, New NeighborsWednesday, February 15th, 2017
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.
