Probate Realtor, Penny O’Brien in Las Vegas, NV Clark County Experienced Agent

Thursday, September 6th, 2018

Hello again everyone,

Are you looking for a Las Vegas, NV Realtor to help you with the sale of a home that is in probate?  You’ve come to the right place.  I can help you.  Feel free to give me a call anytime.  I can assist you through what can be a very challenging event.  Maybe you’ve never had to do a probate sale before.  No worries, I’ll help you through the whole process.

How do you avoid probate on a home?
Here’s  some suggestions for you.
  1. Make a Living Trust.  I can’t stress it enough.  The way to avoid probate is simply to create a living trust.
  2. Name your beneficiaries on all retirement, bank accounts and other accounts that pertain.
  3. File Joint Tenancy with a Right of Survivorship. If you have questions about this let me know.

Wills do not have to go through probate unless you want to transfer ownership of assets owned by the testator, or the person who wrote the will, to her/his living beneficiaries. Some states provide legal options for doing it through simplified procedures for limited estates. 

What needs to go through probate?

Assets that generally do not go through probate are, Firstly, jointly owned assets that transfer to the surviving owner; Secondly,  assets that have a valid beneficiary designation; and then Thirdly assets that are in a trust. However, these assets do not always avoid probate.
Probate is the court-supervised process of the gathering of the deceased person’s assets and distributing them to creditors and inheritors. If you are the executor, your probate process will depend on if your state has adopted the Uniform Probate Code (UPC), which is a set of probate laws written by a group of national experts.
Take care, Penny O’Brien (702) 321.9383.

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

HUD 184 Native Indian Home Loan Program info from Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383 Las Vegas, Henderson, Clark County

Wednesday, August 29th, 2018

Hi there everyone,

Yes! you’ve come to the right site if you’re looking into the HUD 184 Native American Indian Loan Program for Las Vegas, Summerlin, Henderson, Green Valley and the rest of Clark County.

I have helped many buyers with this program and can help you too.  Give/send me a call, text or email at 702.321.9383 or GowithPenny@yahoo.com.

Whether  you’re ready to buy now or in the future I can help guide you as I have helped many others with how the program works and if it’s right for you.  Even if you’re not ready to buy that’s ok, we can discuss the program and prepare you for your future purchase.

It is a government funded program so there are requirements you must meet but that’s common of most financing situations available.  If this program isn’t right for you I’m sure I can find you one that fits your needs.

Our Las Vegas housing market is hot right now, which means we have a very low inventory of homes for sale and more buyers than sellers.  It makes for our housing market to be a little off balance.  Las Vegas needs more sellers.  Sellers know this and are asking for more than their properties are worth, sometimes not all sellers do this but many do.  When they behave this way it drives up prices and sometimes the buyers who are financing a purchase get out bid by cash buyers.  In those cases it is what it is.

Do not give up hope.  I have successfully helped buyers purchase the home they wanted, they did not settle for less.  I have a great track record with working with other Realtors and take great joy knowing that I can meet my clients expectations of being a Rock Star Realtor for them.

Thank you again for you time.  Enjoy your life, Penny

 

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. 
                            
She will walk you through the mind-boggling financial details associated with buying a home. She monitors all new listings and  will alert you to new listings as soon as they are put on the market. She will help to eliminate the stress involved with buying a home by putting her years of real estate experience to work for you.

Professionalism in Real Estate. Summerlin, Las Vegas, Henderson, SW and NW Realtors

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

Hi there,

People obviously do not always appear as they truly are.  What profession are you involved with?  Are you secure in knowing what you’re doing or do you just BS your way through your day?

I am a Professional Realtor, one who is experienced, honest, ethical, educated and fun to work with.  What I’d like you to know is that there are so many agents with their license who have no clue what they are doing OR don’t care.  If I had a dollar for every time I’ve met someone and they said to me, I wish I would have known you when we were buying our house. Our Realtor SUCKED, Our Realtor was horrible.  I would be retired by now.

Let me please implement the importance of interviewing your agent.  Do NOT feel guilty by not choosing them.  Move on until  you find the right match.  Call me, I’d love to help you with your Realtor Needs, I’m not a fake it till you make it.  I know what I’m doing.  Let me handle all the stress of the transaction cause there is stress but my buyers and sellers seldom now because I don’t pull them into it.

Don’t hire someone who does this profession part-time.  Unless, that’s what you want someone who’s going to perform 1/2 of the time.

I can not implement the importance of this matter.  You will be very disappointed with when one the best times that generally happens in our lives, buying and selling a home.

I represent my clients throughout the whole transaction with care and professionalism.

Call, text or email me anytime, Penny O’Brien with RE/MAX Excellence
