Las Vegas Buyers check list by Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Hi everyone:

1. Square footage= SF

Like the story of Goldilocks and the 3 bears: Too small and you might quickly outgrow your new space. Too big can mean unnecessary energy bills and money spent furnishing space you never use.  Too much space to clean in my opinion.

2. Drive time

Be sure your daily commute won’t leave you sitting in traffic, rethinking your relationship with your house. Consider driving to work from your potential home a couple times during rush hour to make sure you know what you’re getting into.

3. Walking distance

Being able to walk, bike or hike  to shops, restaurants, parks and public transportation can really boost your quality of life.

4. Community

Does the neighborhood include features that you feel are critical to your particular lifestyle, like yoga studios, late night takeout options or a safe playground for your kids and or your pets?

5. Planes, trains and automobiles

If you travel frequently, be sure you love how close your potential new home is to the airport, main highways or public transportation. Not a fan of planes flying overhead – or late night trains? Keep that in mind when checking out areas as well. We have a disclosure for that. 😉

Enjoy your day or evening, Please give me a call with any Real Estate questions you may have.  I am here to help.  Penny O’Brien 702.321.9383 GOWITHPENNY@yahoo.com

Do you smell it? It’s fresh air time to buy a home with a pool season in Las Vegas, NV

Thursday, February 9th, 2017

Hi all,

Have You ever noticed how the smell in the air changes over night sometimes?  I live 4.5 hours from the California beaches but I swear some days I smell the ocean.  That Lovely Fresh ocean salty breeze.

I looked up to see how many houses were for sale to fit my clients criteria.  1995 sf or more, 4 bedrooms, 1 bedroom to be downstairs,  outdoor pool and under $310,000.   I believe there were only 74 in the whole Las Vegas valley.   Las Vegas weather for the most part is typically warm.  I always see a switch in buyers when this time of year comes around.  The air changes, the sun is a little warmer, you start hearing more birds chirping all the signs that spring is almost here.  The big difference for us here in Las Vegas is that spring can feel like summer.  Where in other parts of the country spring feels like spring.  We kind of get a little head start on the warm weather.

Many business start putting out summer related out door dining.  Everything starts growing toward being outdoors, hence the buyers consciously or subconsciously wanting to buy a home with a pool.  It maybe something they never considered before depending on where they maybe moving from.  Or, Maybe they just want the ultimate “party” house.  I know when I moved to Vegas from Iowa, having a pool was a must.  I promised my kids we’d have a house with a pool and we did.  There were Lots of fond

memories  made.

Just last night I showed a couple 2 homes with swimming pools.  Something about the desert heat and seeing the pool is so refreshing.  It’s a great time for sellers to put their homes on the market too, especially if they have a pool.

 

Enjoy everyone.  Your friend, Penny O’Brien
