Las Vegas Buyers check list by Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Hi everyone:

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.

4. Community

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. 😉

Enjoy your day or evening, Please give me a call with any Real Estate questions you may have.  I am here to help.  Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383 GOWITHPENNY@yahoo.com

First time home buyers in Las Vegas, Henderson, GV…. Las Vegas Valley

Saturday, January 21st, 2017

Hi there,

Ready, Set Let’s get moving.  Whether you know what it’s like to buy a house or have no clue you’ve come to the right place.  I’ve been helping first time home buyers purchase their first place for over 15 years full-time.

So, what kind of questions do you have or perhaps doubts do you have?  Does it go something like this?

  • We don’t have enough money to buy. ( it doesn’t take much money to purchase a place.  I have lots of options for you)
  • Our credit sucks. (we can fix that)
  • We are in a lease for a quite a while yet. (You never know how long it may take to find your place, It’s never too soon to start looking at homes)
  • It’s cheaper to rent than own.  (that’s not true in most cases)
  • My friends, co-workers and family all say I  am dreaming. (What’s wrong with Dreaming. Let’s get you educated so you can full-fill your dream)
  • I heard I have to have a lot of money to purchase a home, the down payment, closing costs, inspections, the list goes on and on.  (There are so many down payment assistant programs out here, closing costs can be paid by the seller, please do not get scared, I’m here to help)

Let’s see what the pros of owning your own home can be:

  • Paint the walls whatever color you want.
  • Be free to have pets. No one telling you that you can’t have a dog or cat etc.
  • Place wall hanging and pictures wherever you’d like.
  • Most of the time you will have a garage.
  • Yard space.
  • Lots more privacy.
  • Independence and Freedom.
  • The number of goodness of owning a home is priceless.

Please don’t hesitate to call me and let’s talk about your new home.  There are no questions that are silly or stupid as I sometimes hear from First timers.  Listen, Seriously, I don’t know what you do for a living but I bet I can’t do it and have no idea of how to.  VisaVersa here.  You might not know Real Estate, I’ve been doing it for so long, I can help you.

Are there Aliens in Las Vegas, NV? Area 51

Monday, January 16th, 2017

Hi there everyone,

So many people assume that Aliens do exist in Las Vegas.  I tend to agree because of noticing the stuff behind the scenes.  It’s not difficult to see, you just have to be open to it.

Here’s a few alien meanings:

  1. Belonging to a foreign country or nation.
  2. Exotic, Foreign, acting like the role of an alien to his nature.
  3. A foreigner, especially one who is not a naturalized citizen of the country where they are living, “an illegal alien.
  4. A plant or animal species introduced from another country and later natural.

I’ve seen all of the above.  This Town has all kinds of people and or aliens walking around and living in Sunny Las Vegas.

Area 51 is only a few miles from Las Vegas, You can’t get too close to it but you can go and enjoy the experience of the trip out there and the restaurants and shops that are there for the believers of Aliens.

Are you looking to buy or sell a home or homes in Las Vegas or the surrounding areas.  if so, give me a text or call @

Home buying programs in Las Vegas, NV. Home at last and Home is possible. Military Heroes!!

Saturday, April 30th, 2016

Hi folks and happy Saturday,

We’ve got a rainy Saturday going on today. It actually rained all night long.  It was great.  I am now sitting at Starbucks people watching while trying to blog.  It’s fun to people watch.  Like my grandma always said “it takes all kinds to make the world go around”.  I am trying to concentrate but I hear so many different conversations going on.  Even the music that plays here at Starbucks is distracting me.  I am totally going off track here.  Focus Penny, Focus.   Trying to ignore the snoring guy.   So sorry, FOCUS, PENNY

Back to the Home at Last program. Let’s talk about who qualifies:

First-time homebuyers (buyers who have not owned a home in the past 3 years):  or Qualifying Veterans who will live in the home as their primary residence.

Households meeting normal FHA, VA, Conventional or USDA RD  underwriting requirement.

Homebuyers who meet generous income and purchase price requirements. The limits vary depending on county and household size.  Please visit www.NvRALorg/MTC to review current income and purchase price limits.

Enjoy your day everyone!!! I greatly appreciate your time you’ve spent keeping up with my blog.  Until next time:  call me, Penny @ 702.321.9383

 

FORECLOSURES: They’re Back!!! Las Vegas Housing Market

Monday, April 18th, 2016

Hi Folks:

Have you been wondering where did all the foreclosures go here in Las Vegas?  Well they did kind of disappear for a while.  Banks have been holding on to properties for a very long time and are now starting to release them.  It really does sadden me to see houses left unattended for years.  I have been helping people buy and sell properties for a very long time here in Las Vegas and have helped so many people short sale their homes.  It really is unbelievable how the whole process works.  Depending on the bank, how many loans on the property, is there a hardship?  Many, many variables are a part of what happens to a property during a short sale and or foreclosure.  Some banks are so much easier to work with than other banks.  There’s not a lot to be excited about when you are dealing with having to short sale or being foreclosed on.  I have helped many families successfully close on a short sale.

Now that the foreclosures are making a comeback I am hoping these houses will be sold at a fair price and banks cooperate well.  As you all know, in a short sale and foreclosure sale the bank has the final say-so in the decision on the sales price.  If there are two banks or more involved in a short sale, you have to hope those two institutions will cooperate together.

If you are moving or ready to buy please give me a call or text.  Or, come by my office.  Send me an e-mail.  I look forward to helping you and making your Real Estate transaction as enjoyable as I can.  Enjoy your day/night.  Until next time.  Peace out.  Penny
