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.

Housing Data Holds Steady, Fed Does Too
Long-term housing data stayed solid in the third quarter, although some monthly data was disappointing.
August Housing Starts fell 3 percent from July and failed to meet expectations. Despite the decline, Housing Starts still kept pace above one million for the fifth straight month, signaling significant recovery after the housing bubble imploded in 2008. August Building Permits also were up 3.5 percent from July, reaching 1.17 million units.
August Existing Home Sales, as reported by the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), also declined 4.8 percent from July to an annual rate of 5.31 million. This was below the 5.50 million expected. The disappointing drop comes after three straight monthly gains. Year-over-year sales, however, have risen for 11 consecutive months and are 6.2 percent above a year ago.
Finally, August New Home Sales surged to the highest rate since early 2008 and were up nearly 22 percent from August 2014. July’s numbers were also revised higher, signaling continued strength in the U.S. housing market.
FHA Eases Requirements for Some Borrowers
The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) announced over 60 loan guideline changes and clarifications that impact charge-off accounts, late payments, self-employed borrowers who have experienced a drop in income, and more. The changes took effect on September 14, 2015. While the changes are subject to lender approval, some of the new rules may make it easier for borrowers to qualify for an FHA loan.
Fed Held Benchmark Rate Steady
Investors were once again awaiting action from the Federal Open Market Committee meeting in September. Like prior meetings this year, the Fed opted to leave its benchmark Fed Funds Rate alone.
The Fed Funds Rate is the rate at which banks lend money to each other overnight. While this rate is not tied directly to home loan rates, when the Fed Funds Rate rises, home loan and other consumer rates may follow suit, depending on the economy and market conditions.
Fed Chair Janet Yellen said it is unlikely the Fed Funds Rate will be raised at one of its remaining meetings this year. While Gross Domestic Product surged in the second quarter and other key indicators show signs of a strengthening economy, the September Jobs Report was weak.
In the meantime, home loan rates have started this fall near historic lows. But it’s important to stay tuned in to action from the Fed and economic news here at home and overseas—all of which can impact the markets and home loan rates. Stay informed with my next quarterly REALinsight Market Update coming in January.

- Penny’s commissions and how they work
- How will she help you with your Real Estate needs.
You’ve done your research, and you are ready to purchase a home. Now is the time to call Penny, your Real Estate Agent with over a decade of experience. 15 years to be exact.
As a buyer, you don’t gain anything by not using an agent, because the seller pays the agent a commission. A percentage of the commission, usually half, goes to the listing agent (the agent who put the house on the market on the seller’s behalf), and the remaining commission goes to the buyer’s agent (the agent that represents you, the buyer). Typical commissions range from 5 to 7 percent.
In the past, agents always worked for the seller. The bigger the sales amount, the higher the commission. Now that’s not usually the case. Instead, you sign a contract specifying a buyer’s agency or representation. If you aren’t sure about the type of agent, ask!
Your Real Estate Agent Penny will help you in many ways, including the following:
- Penny will help you determine how much you’d like to spend when purchasing a home. She can recommend lenders and work with lenders on your behalf to prequalify you for a loan.
- Penny has access to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) that lists homes for sale. While you can also find houses on your own by attending open houses, reading your paper’s real estate section, or looking online. She is the best point of access for all homes and can arrange showings for houses of interest.
- Your Favorite Agent Penny will help you narrow your search by going through a home with you and noting what you like and dislike. She is also a source of information about the home itself: how long it’s been on the market, the neighborhood and school system, the home’s best features and so on. Rather than being flooded with properties of all type, your agent can help you find a match for your specific needs and wants.
- Your Favorite Real Estate Agent Penny can also answer questions about the current market, interest rates and other home buying issues. She can also refer you to other specialists whom you will need, including a home inspector or a lender.
- If you’re interested in a Brand New Home she is an expert on all the Las Vegas Builders, what they have to offer and where they are building, whether it’s the North, South East or West. Including Summerlin, Henderson, the NW and SW.
- Your favorite Real Estate Agent Penny will negotiate on your behalf when you make your offer on your new place. The agent can help you determine exactly what you offer by several different techniques. Many things play a factor in the price such as appliances, seller’s help on closing costs and other negotiation issues). The agent will write up the offer and present it to the seller’s agent.
- Your agent Penny will lead you through the process, ensuring all necessary steps are completed, such as helping find a lender, if you require to finance, participating in the home inspection, working with the title company, repair people any thing that needs to addressed during the sales process.
- She will also help people searching for a rental.
