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.

When I first got into Helping clients buy and sell homes I thought to myself, It’s really important to remember how much work it can be to move. So many of us move in a home and stay set. As one lady said to me the other day, I’m never moving again, she was probably in her late 50’s and just has had enough moving around. She said I’m going to die in this house. Which of right now we don’t have to disclose if someone dies in a property.
My point of this blog is, I just moved. It was a great experience. I don’t have a lot of things, I am a minimalist. I will say tho, even as a minimalist, it’s a lot of work moving. If you need information about Las Vegas Real Estate, homes for sale, or are interested in selling, Please give me a call, I’ve been helping clients buy and sell homes in Las Vegas for over 17 years full-time.
If you are moving and need some help, give me a call. I will help out if possible.
Enjoy your life,

Let’s be honest, shall we? If you don’t have a pre-approval letter from a lender when you are ready to buy do you really think that a seller will take you seriously? Think of it this way, let’s turn the situation around. You are the seller, I put your house on the market and offers start flooding in. Any one can offer any amount, someone could offer you a million dollars on a home valued at $200k. It does not mean that the lender/bank/financial company is going to loan you a million dollars for the house. They will loan you the appraised value, minus down payment amount depending on your loan type. You’re probably not going to go to the market and pay $20 a pound for apples, unless they are gold plated. Back to the pre-approval letter and buyers.
For the sack of being simple let’s say 2 offers come in. One offer is at list price, we believe after doing our investigation on the property that it will appraise for list. The second offer is at list and the buyer is willing to pay out of pocket an additional $20k cause it’s right next to their family and they have to have the house. The first offer came with a pre-approval letter and is a sound buyer. The second offer has no approval letter, you have no idea if this buyer is capable of purchasing your home or not. There’s no evidence of funds. NOW WHAT? Obviously, we ask for the letter of approval but they tell us, don’t worry we are good for the loan, we have good jobs, have money in our savings, we’ve bought before, the bank will give us the money. Are you going to believe them? I hope not. You have to be able to know at least at the time of their loan application that they were qualified for the loan. Things can change between then and the time of purchase.
So, the moral of the blog is, if we are going to go out there and start looking for a home for you, FIRST things FIRST, let’s talk with a lender. It’s important also to feel comfortable with the payment you will be making. You may fall in love with a house that is totally out of your price range. It’s all about preparing yourself for what is right for you.
What kind of loan will you be getting? FHA? VA? Conventional, HUD or paying CASH.
Now, are you ready? Let’s go see a lender and see what best for you. You can reach me at: 702.321.9383 Text, call or email: GoWithPenny@yahoo.com

I highly encourage you to give me a call if you are considering trying to sell your place yourself..
Here is why:
My high amount of contacts with buyers/sellers/other agents and the marketing on the Internet is outrageous. I have been helping people buy and sell in the Las Vegas, Summerlin, Henderson, SW, NW and North Las Vegas for over 15 years full-time and I know the market, I know how buyers and sellers work. This is my business, I am in the business of buying and selling homes. I am not a banker, so I don’t do loans, I am not a Doctor, so, I do not do surgery. I am a REALTOR, I help in selling and buying homes for my wonderful clients.
Do you enjoy working with Legal documents? Do you really want to be responsible for the documentation that is required by the state of NV for selling a home in Nevada? It’s a lot of work. NO JOKE.
The paperwork involved in selling and buying a home has increased dramatically as the Las Vegas Real Estate industry disclosures and regulations have become mandatory. There are so many new forms and disclosures becoming part of the transaction, it is very important to know exactly what is required.
It’s not the case that you will save money selling your own property. And, really, who will benefit the most if you are the seller trying to sell your own place? Believe it or not, it will more than likely be the buyer. Honestly, selling your own home sometimes doesn’t make sense.

I think you will find this very useful:
For FHA loans:
• Make sure the utilities and mechanical systems are on and functioning correctly.
• Make sure carbon monoxide detectors are installed and functional; if required by state law.
• Make sure smoke detectors are installed and functional.
• Make sure water heater is properly strapped to code; if required by state law. This applies to homes
located in California and various other states with seismic zone ratings of 3 or above.
• Make sure all areas of the property (including all units, rooms, garages, outbuildings, guest units,
etc.) are accessible to the appraiser for inspection. Please make sure that the appraiser has a clear
path around the exterior of the home. The appraiser may need to photograph all of these areas.
