Once every three years, the Federal Reserve conducts their Survey of Consumer Finances in which they collect data across all economic and social groups. Their latest survey data, covering 2013-2016 was just released not too long ago.
This survey revealed that the median net worth of a homeowner was $231,400 – a 15% increase since 2013. During the same time, the median net worth of renters decreased by 5% ($5,200 today compared to $5,500 in 2013).
So the bottom line is that the numbers reveal that the net worth of a homeowner is over 44 times greater than that of a renter.
Quietly saving money and owning your American Dream:
The “American Dream” is to own your own home, it’s also a way of “Saving” due to the growth in equity of the home. That is considering your home is going up in value.
Many people don’t invest in anything more than their home. They don’t save money, they don’t have CD’s or entertain the idea of investing in the stock market.

Top 10 Places to live in Las Vegas
Enterprise, No not the car rental company ;0)
The Clark County area is growing so fast. Las Vegas continues to have so many attractions for everyone of all ages to come and enjoy. Most people who live in Vegas greatly appreciate our amenities. The list is endless of fun and exciting things to do. The shows on the strip, the night life of Vegas. We almost have it all, only thing really missing is the Pacific Ocean, that problem can be solved easily, hop on a plane or jump in your car and in a few hours you’re there.
As far as Summerlin goes that is no surprise to me. Summerlin is an amazing Master-Planned Community. It has wonderful schools, walking trails, beautiful homes, it’s near Red Rock Canyon, Downtown Summerlin has amazing shopping, a movie theater, lots of restaurants and is very family oriented.
The Lakes is located very near Summerlin, it is a bit more established. The houses maybe a little less pricey than Summerlin and the location is amazing. Again, situated near shopping and restaurants. They too have lots of walking trails and the trees and vegetation are nice and mature so it’s really beautiful. Yes, it’s called the Lakes because they have man made Lakes within the community.
I have a secret about Tule Springs, builders have bought up over 18000 acres and will begin building soon.
Would you like more information about these communities? Buzz me anytime, Penny O’Brien @ 702.321.9383

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,

Hi there everyone,
Yes, I said the “G” word, Ghost. The question is living in NV, do you have to disclose you have a ghost in the house. From what I understand You MUST disclose your Ghost. Not the skeletons in your closet, just any ghosts. Now, what does that really mean? It means if you are aware of a ghost in your house you must disclose it when selling. Now, here’s the thing about ghosts, sometimes they hang around with the people in the house because maybe the ghost came with them when they moved it. What if some people say they have ghosts because they want there to be one in their home and honestly there isn’t a ghost. But most of all, how can you prove there’s a ghost? In my opinion some times if the ghost really are with the people that are selling, they more than likely may move out when the sellers do.
We don’t currently have any NV Real Estate forms where as the seller you have to disclose or prove you have a ghost.
You know you don’t have to disclose that someone died in the house, so why disclose if you have a ghost? It’s all kind goofy and a fine line. And, what’s the definition of a ghost. Here’s what I found on-line, the seat of life or intelligence :soul. 2: a disembodied soul; especially: the soul of a dead person believed to be an inhabitant of the unseen world or to appear to the living in bodily likeness. 3:spirit, demon. 4a: a faint shadowy trace b: the least bit.
So, now I ask, what’s the difference between a soul and a spirit. The definition of ghost states nothing about seeing a ghost in a physical matter.
Bottom line, if you have a ghost and are planning on selling your home. PLEASE call Me, I’d love to be a part of your sale. I love ghosts. Have a blessed day, till my next post. Take care of yourself. Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383

How the heck are ya? Very well I hope. If you’re here to know more about tiny homes in Las Vegas and other cities around Vegas then here we go.
First of All, Nevada is very rural, many people if you haven’t visited NV would think of just Vegas and the population of the valley. When you start getting outside of Vegas you will see that it so very rural. You can travel on and on and on and never see a home.
Here’s the kicker, Las Vegas of course like many cities have somewhat strict building codes. I realize they are in place to protect home owners and the public. But, If you’re wanting to live the “tiny house” movement life style, which I personally love the idea, it’s probably not gonna happen in Clark county.
Land in Clark county is not inexpensive either. Living off the grid in Clark County, probably not gonna happen. So, you can see that it’s not gonna happen and if so it surely wouldn’t be easy.
So, where in NV can we do our tiny home living. Many areas. If you’re willing to NOT live in Vegas. Of course, I love Vegas, I’ve been working with Buyers and sellers with their properties for over 15 years buy and sell here in Vegas. I’m just sharing that many people DO NOT want big houses. They don’t want all the maintenance, they want freedom to travel, to live simplistic, they are minimalist.
INTERESTED now? If so, Call me @702.321.9353
I will help you with your dream of having your own tiny house. LET’S do this. It’s exciting. ENJOY your day,

How are you? I have been using the term food for thought and for the past 3 days others/strangers have also been using it. I find it fascinating when I’m talking with someone or thinking of someone and they start talking about what I’m thinking. The power of thought is pretty amazing. Which brings me to the thought of Real Estate. You and many others think about Real Estate a lot I bet. Whether it’s how much is my house worth? Should I buy a house? Should I sell my house? What about the school district, are we in the right one now? Do I want to live closer to work? Should I buy a bigger house to have some other family members move in with me? Choices are wonderful. This is why I say, if you are thinking Real Estate call me and let’s think together. There are so many things to consider and I am a honest agent that truly will help you in deciding what is right for you. I am not saying I have all the answers but I can help educate you on pricing of homes and any other questions about Las Vegas Real Estate that you may have.
I really do look forward to hearing from you. Enjoy your day/evening. Until next time, take care of yourself. Penny O’Brien your friendly Realtor,
