CRISIS is coming to Southern Nevada builders, Many illegals have moved to Canada to earn a living leaving Las Vegas short on workers

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

This is what they said a few months ago.  If you plan to build it in Las Vegas if it’s a new casino, a freeway, or a stadium for the Raiders and UNLV the construction workers will come, officials believe.

Southern Nevada has seen lots of boom periods in its history. Another boom is now happening across Southern Nevada, with planned, proposed and construction projects underway totaling as much as $15 billion.

Labor Union 184   say “they will absolutely be able to complete the stadium project by the beginning of the 2020 football season”. That’s a big commitment.

And data suggests Nevada does not have enough construction workers to accommodate the timing needs of the stadium along with several existing and future major construction projects, including a Strip mega resort, two highway projects and a manufacturing plant.

Construction industry professionals have said the most acute shortage may occur among professionals and specialists, such as architects and engineers.

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

Month-over-month change in selling prices for August 2017 Las Vegas and the United States

Friday, November 17th, 2017

Month-over-month change in selling prices for August 2017This is very interesting.  I hope you enjoy it too.  Moving?  Let me know how I can help with your Real Estate needs. Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383

This map shows each state’s month-over-month selling price for August 2017.  The light gray states, prices have gone up between July and August. This would suggest a seller’s market where buyers may face increased competition. New York and Wisconsin had the highest month-over-month price increases — both above 6% — likely indicating that their housing markets are gaining strength.

The full data lists the median selling prices in July 2017 and August 2017 for each state. The actual numbers can give some insight into the amount of inventory compared to demand from home buyers. Median selling prices are currently over $300,000 in many large seller’s markets including District of Columbia, Hawaii, California, Massachusetts, Colorado, Washington and New York. According to the data, District of Columbia had the highest median selling price in August 2017 at $510,099.

I have over 20 years experience working with buyers and sellers.

LIVING IN LAS VEGAS, SUMMERLIN, HENDERSON, SW AND NW LAS VEGAS LIVING IN VEGAS FOR ALMOST 20 YEARS

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

HOWDY!!!!!!

let’s talk about living in Las Vegas, Henderson, SW, and NW  Las Vegas.  I can honestly say it’s all EXCITING!!!

Henderson  vs. Summerlin: Henderson and Summerlin are both wonderful places to live.  I hear all the time that there’s the Summerlin haters and the Henderson Haters.   It’s funny to me.  I wonder if they have EVEN lived in these two communities.  Seriously, I have experienced living in both areas.  I loved them both.  I raised my kids in Summerlin, moving from Iowa it seemed like more of a small home town environment.  The little town I moved from was populated with only 800 people, give or take a death or birth.  My children exceeded in their education at all schools they attended in Summerlin.  It was a wonderful time in our lives.

After they graduated I realized I could move around the valley, So, I moved to the SW for a little over a year.  I really loved living there, it was near the 215, shopping was friendly, good walking trails.  Very nice housing and neighbors.

After the SW I moved to Henderson, zip code 89052.  One of the best zip codes in the United States.  I too loved living there.  It was a great experience.  Lots of really nice parks, shopping and amenities everywhere.  It was a wonderful place to live.

My next move was to the far NW.  Way out in the country where there’s very few street lights.  Horse country.  It was really nice for me at the time.  I lived a very quite and kind of silent/isolated time.  It was so very peaceful.  I would walk for miles, some times over 14 miles a day.  The storms like to hit that area too.  So, to see some amazing light storms and experience the country life was very pleasant.  It reminded me of my life in Iowa and growing up on the farm.

Now, I live just outside of Summerlin.  It’s very nice there.  I do miss the country, I miss it very much,  It’s not too far from where I live so I can drive out there and get my country fix.

What part of the valley are you interested in knowing more about?  I can help you get moving, just simply call me. 702.321.9383 ask for Penny.

ENJOY your day/evening.

Where do you want to live in Las Vegas?

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017
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.

Give me a call and let’s find you a place to purchase.  Penny O’Brien GOWithPENNY@yahoo.com 702.321.9383

Las Vegas HOA’s:: CIC’s what are they? Are they a benefit? Pros and Cons

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

Hi there,

HOA’s what are they and why are they so popular in Las Vegas?  If you are moving from the Midwest and other areas of the world that don’t have HOA’s you’re probably wondering what they are and why are they important or not important.  To begin with HOA stands for Home Owners Association.  Another term for HOA is CIC, Common Interest Community? Here is the NV Law that gives the meaning:

1.  In the case of:

      (a) A condominium or cooperative, all portions of the common-interest community other than the units, including easements in favor of units or the common elements over other units.

      (b) A planned community, any real estate within a planned community which is owned or leased by the association, other than a unit.

      2.  In all common-interest communities, any other interests in real estate for the benefit of units’ owners which are subject to the declaration.

     In other words when you purchase a home that is within a CIC you will receive a Re-Sale package that explains the rules and by-laws within the community.  For example:  it may state, when you can hang your Christmas lights, how long you can set your trash out and when and where the trash can needs to be.   It may state you can’t paint your house purple.  What type of landscaping you can have. What type of lighting you can install. Where you can park or not park. Many but not all CIC’s are in gated community so you have rules about how the gate code is given out or not given out.  Many CIC’s are rules.

In communities that don’t have HOA rules, you more than likely can hang your Christmas lights all year long.  You can work on your car in the driveway, you can park RV’s or boats on the street.  In essence, you can do most anything you want and not get a warning or fined.

I moved here from Iowa and respectfully you cared about your property and how your neighbors are living in due respect to all of the community.  The city may have had a few restrictions but all in all there weren’t many rules.

Many people are happy to live in community with HOA’s.  Many people are not.  It’s all about what is important to you.  If you live within a HOA community you do not have the rights to change or go against the grade.  You will not probably succeed at changing things.

If you are warned by the HOA to example: pull your weeds from the front yard or pressure wash the oil off your driveway I recommend doing what they ask.  If not, you will be warned again and more than likely fined.

Many People who buy in HOA communities don’t realize that the HOA board members live in that community so they are somewhat policing the community.  They are looking for violations of the homeowners.  Some board members take this responsibility to the max and absolutely nit pick at homeowners to the point of annoyance and harassment.

I had at one time sold a condo to a client who loved the area, loved the complex but many of the board members took their position very seriously and in lack of a better way to explain were very terrible to the people who lived within the complex.  Needless to say My client asked me to sell his condo for him because he could not stand the HOA board members harassments.

When living in a HOA community you will have fees to pay. Most every HOA is different in their monthly fee, quarterly fee or yearly fees.

If you have any questions about HOA’s I’d be happy to discuss with you more about them.

Thank you for your time and enjoy your life.
