What’s your Summerlin Las Vegas home worth/value? Ask a Specialist, Special agent Penny. Las Vegas Real Estate, free CMA

Tuesday, September 4th, 2018

Hi again,

I’m happy you’re here.  What’s your house worth?  Are you looking to sell?  Give me a call and we can discuss your housing situation. Whether you are selling an investment property a personal home, maybe it’s a home in probate and you’re the executor.  I can help assist you in your Real Estate transaction.

Obviously it’s a good idea to let me see your property for an accurate account of what it’s value.  The generic CMA, Comparative Market Analysis is a general comparison of other homes that have sold within your 5-6 mile radius of your home.  A property/home that has sold within the past few months.  It’s really impossible to compare homes without viewing it to get the maximize price  for your home.  One persons idea of a really nice house with upgrades can be truly distorted by their opinion of what really nice means.

I spend a substantial amount of time putting together a true CMA for you, one that gives you the accurate information of what your home is worth.  I know the Las Vegas, Summerlin, North Las Vegas, SW and NW values of homes selling and how our Real Estate Market is at the time you’re ready to sell.  Listen, our market is changing on a daily basis, I know that sounds strange but it’s always changing and it’s important to understand how it works and is working.  Give me a call and we can discuss what you need and if it’s attainable.  Thank you for your time.  Stay safe.

Las Vegas, Realtor, Penny: What’s trending in the Las Vegas Housing market, resale vs. new homes, Raiders, Golden Knights, weed

Wednesday, August 29th, 2018

Hi everyone,

What’s trending in the housing market here in Las Vegas?  Lots!!  Prices are rising-up, up and away.  The Median priced re-sale home is around $350k .

Every section of the Las Vegas Valley has New Homes under construction.  Depending on your likings there are homes around $150k usually condo and townhomes, then the skies the limit, you name it you can upgrade it in a new home in Summerlin, Henderson, North Las Vegas, the SW and NW.  Typically if you’re buying a new home most people send an average of $70k in upgrades at a home priced around $500k.  Which could include, flooring, cabinets, countertops, elevation of the home, extensions, lighting and electrical upgrades and so much more.  It’s all about personal taste and money when it comes to upgrading a new home.

There’s lots of buzz about the Raiders coming to Las Vegas.  Many bars/food establishments have claimed themselves as “Raiders bars”, I spent a lot of time downtown Las Vegas this weekend and already some places have started advertising for game day.  As more information about these bars pop up I’ll inform  you via this blog.

Vegas Golden Knights are always trending because they have done so much for the city.  During the horrible event on Oct. 1 2017 the Golden Knights took charge and showed the community how much respect they have for the victims, their families and the whole community in general.  So much love and gratitude shined through a really rough time here. The one year anniversary of Oct. 1st is coming soon.  there are many events planned for all people to come together to support one another.  I am sure the VGK will be a part of it all.

Weed, yes, we have legalized marijuana.  Many travelers arrive in Las Vegas and head straight to a dispensary.  Some people think Disney Land is the happiest place in the world, others believe Las Vegas is, Las Vegas is by far a big adult playground.

To Keep up with what’s happening in  Las Vegas just check in, thank you for now, Penny

Top 10 Places to live in Las Vegas

Summerlin South

Summerlin North

The Lakes

Rancho Charleston

Buffalo

Sheep Mountain

Tule Springs

UMC

Centennial Hills

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

Section 184 Indian Home Loan Guarantee Program for buyers Las Vegas REALTOR lots of information

Wednesday, August 15th, 2018
 
Hi there everyone, If you’re looking for someone who knows how this program works, Call Penny NOW 702.321.9383
 
What exactly is the Section 184 Loan Guarantee Program?
The Section 184 Loan Guarantee Program is a loan product available to Tribes, Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHEs), and Tribal members.  This loan can be used on or off reservation for purchase, rehab, refinance, or new construction.  The Section 184 Indian Home Loan Guarantee program is a tool for Tribes to bring more housing to tribal communities and other areas.  Section 184 Loans are used for SFR, single-family housing (1-4 units), with a fixed-rate loan for 30 years or less. Section 184 cannot be used for commercial structures or with any type of Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARMs).
 
Who qualifies for the HUD 184 loan?
  • American Indians or Alaska Natives who are members of a federally recognized tribe
  • Federally recognized Indian tribes
  • Tribally designated housing entities
  • Indian Housing Authorities
Yes, Penny knows this program very well.  She can help you understand how it works. The Section 184 Indian Home Loan Guarantee Program is an amazing home mortgage product specifically designed for American Indian and Alaska Native families, Alaska villages, tribes, or tribally designated housing entities. Congress established this program in 1992 to facilitate homeownership and increase access to capital in Native American Communities.
With Section 184 financing buyers can get into a home with a low down payment. One of Penny’s single mom buyers only had to come in with $1700 total to buy a 3 bedroom townhome with a 2 car garage. It was cheaper for her to buy a home than to rent.  A couple from Alaska bought a two bedroom townhome with a 2 car garage, they were happy to have the program available for them to use.
 Section 184 loans can be used, both on and off native lands, for new construction, rehabilitation, purchase of an existing home, or refinance.
Section 184 is synonymous with home ownership in Indian Country.
Penny has helped so many buyers using this program, she believes it’s a fantastic program for the well deserving population that qualifies for it.  Please feel free to call her for more information.  Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383
 Section 184 is adding to the marketability and value of the Native assets and strengthening the financial standing of Native communities.
Is Las Vegas eligible for the program?
Yes, Las Vegas, Summerlin, Henderson, Green Valley, North Las Vegas, Southwest and Northwest Las Vegas all fit the criteria for this loan. The program has grown to include eligible areas beyond tribal trust land.
What you can expect from Penny when you are a First-Time home buyer:
             
  • She works at no cost to you!
  • Provides detailed listing information not always available to the general public.
  • Negotiates the deal to help save you money.
  • Guides you through the avalanche of paperwork.
  • Penny Commits lots of time and energy to finding you the right property. 
 
As your Real Estate Agent she will lead you through every single step of the exciting home buying process. Penny will help you define your “wish list” of features you want in your home.

The Paseos isn’t a new village but they have a Lot of building going on.

Reverence, it’s located on the far north of Summerlin.  Near the 215 and Cheyenne exit.  It’s elevation is very attractive to many new home buyers.

Stonebridge, it’s located in the West Section of Summerlin.  The area has a higher elevation.

Las Vegas Realtor asks: How many Skittles are in the little package? Grape, Green Apple, Strawberry, Orange and Lemon

Friday, December 8th, 2017

Hi there,

just a fun fact blog today, cause everything in my life is related to Real Estate in some way shape or form.  For example: as I sit here blogging about Las Vegas Homes for sale and what is important about what my readers want to know about our Las Vegas market.  Yes, I’ve seen housing the same color as my skittles. Many of them actually.  Most of these homes are located in housing areas that have NO HOA’s.

I just opened a little pack of bite size skittles.  Really never paying attention to anything but the love of them and how they make me happy.  I glanced down to see the pretty colors sitting there.  I was struck with wonder, how many skittles are there in this little package, and really what flavors are they?

13 were in this pack.  I’m going to go get another lil package and see if there’s 13 in all the packs or if the number varies.  There were more green apple bite size candies in this group.

Here’s hoping you enjoy your candy too.  Take care everyone.  Call me if you’d like to know more about Skittles and Our Las Vegas, Summerlin, Henderson, Green Valley, North Las Vegas, SW and NW housing market and what’s out there. I have new home sales info, how the builders are, how much the new homes are.  Along with all resales of single family homes, condos and town homes.

Maybe you want to buy a home and color it like the rainbow of colors in the Skittles package.  I can help you find that house.  Penny O’Brien with RE/MAX Excellence, I put the Excellence in Real Estate. 702.321.9383

P.S. I had to open up another lil skittle package. This one too has 13 pieces in it.  4 orange, 5 grape, 2 lemon, 1 strawberry and 1 green apple.
2 hours later, I just had to out of pure curiosity I opened another little package of Skittles, this one has 15 pieces:  1 orange, 2 lemon, 5 strawberry, 3 grape and 4 green apple.   that’s it for me and the skittles, for today anyway!
