WHAT?

That’s the first thing I hear when I engage in a conversation about prices of Real Estate here in Las Vegas, Henderson, Summerlin, SW, NW the entire Valley.   You mean to tell me I can buy what I want for under $300k?

Las Vegas home prices are rising as I am submitting this blog.  It’s just the honest truth.  Current homeowners are so happy prices are going up, buyers not so much.

There are thousands of new homes being built here, while Re-sale homes are sparse.  There just isn’t enough homes for all the buyers.

With NV not having State Taxes people can actually afford more for a home.  I know when I lived in Iowa I paid a lot in State Taxes and Property taxes.

Las Vegas has a very low property tax charge.

Call me NOW so we can go over all your Real Estate needs.  Enjoy your day/evening. Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383

Section 184 Indian Home Loan in Las Vegas, NV INFORMATIVE, Call Penny now, 702.321.9383

Tuesday, August 1st, 2017

Hi there,

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

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

 

Prices & Sales Continue to Rise in the Las Vegas Housing Market, March 2016

Friday, April 15th, 2016

Hi Everyone, Happy Friday from Sunny, Windy Las Vegas:

Words: The Central Banker’s Conundrum April 8, 2016 — Mortgage rates declined a bit this week,

April 8, 2016 — Mortgage rates declined a bit this week, as investors refocused on global economic troubles and the words and deeds of central bankers around the globe.

Although modest U.S. economic expansion continues, doubts remain that it is durable enough to continue in the face of considerable worldwide headwinds, or strong enough so as to be an engine to help lift the world from its malaise. Certainly, many central banks are employing novel approaches to try to spark growth in their economies, but so far the only success story to be seen is here.

Much as it might like to, the Fed cannot lift interest rates as desired, at least not without causing the kind of market-disrupting outward ripples we endured in the aftermath of the Fed’s small move to the Federal Funds rate back in December. That move — and plans for as many as four more this year — so unsettled markets that the Fed was forced to back down its expectations for lifting rates in 2016 from four moves to two.

As they usually do after tumultuous periods, markets settled, and now, with Fed policy de-tuned, there aren’t any immediate rate changes for which to plan or hedge. The Fed is watching the data for clues, the market is watching the Fed for clues, with both reacting accordingly when they come. At the moment, the Fed is “talking down” expectations for growth and rates by highlighting the risks and challenges the economy faces. This has helped mortgage rates to fall, but presents a bit of a quandary for the Fed’s messaging to markets.

HSH.com’s broad-market mortgage tracker — our weekly Fixed-Rate Mortgage Indicator (FRMI) — found the overall average rate for 30-year fixed-rate mortgages eased by eleven basis points (.11%), slipping to an average 3.67%, its lowest value since May 2013. The FRMI’s 15-year companion found a little less space to fall, with this week’s average trimming nine basis points to an average rate of 3.07%. Rates on fully-insured FHA-backed 30-year FRMs remain considerably below their Fannie and Freddie counterparts but declined far less than they did, falling by just four basis points to land at an average interest rate of 3.55%. Meanwhile, the overall 5/1 Hybrid ARM continued tracked the FRMI completely, sliding by eleven one-hundredths of one% to land at 2.90 percent for the week.

The median price for condos was also up for the 47th month in a row.

with home sales have been higher than the year before ten of the last twelve months.

The housing market continues to be on the side of sellers.

The median price for single-family, re-sale homes in the Greater Las Vegas area rose, year-over-year, for the 47th month in a row in March.

 

I will say once again, INVENTORY is very low.  If you are ready to move please give me a buzz so we can go over your Real Estate needs.  I am here to help.  Thank you for your time.  Penny
