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.

Traffic accidents in and around Las Vegas, NV Clark County. It’s disturbing!!!

Tuesday, September 4th, 2018

Hi everyone,

If you think that we are lacking on vehicle accidents and fatalities here in Las Vegas, think again.  Considering that I drive around the valley continuously I can honestly say our traffic is out of control in a horrible way.  This morning I can upon a fatality, a motorcyclist lost his/her life in North Las Vegas.  Ok, you’re probably thinking well, after all a motorcycle doesn’t have much protection, they should be more careful.  Yes, that’s true but our “Car/ vehicle” drivers suck here (many of them).  If you don’t believe me give it a whirl, get out there and drive, see what I see.  You’re going to see idiots speeding like no tomorrow.  You’ll experience all ages and nationalities driving very slow in the fast lane.  People cutting others off.  Lane changing the wrong way.  Rear ending and people running people off the road.

The accidents are not located in isolated areas.  It’s everywhere.  I turned the corner the other day and there’s a car up the light pole in Summerlin, it’s puzzling to try to figure out what happened.  There are a ton of hit and runs in Las Vegas. Hit and run of cars and pedestrians.  On my way from Summerlin to the McCarran airport and returning to my office off Tropicana and Buffalo I saw 8 near misses and 4 separate accidents.  Which encompassed 35 miles worth of traveling.

Solution to this horrible increasing problem would be to the crappy drivers.  Stop talking on the phone, stop texting while driving.  Both of which are illegal in the state of NV.  PAY ATTENTION to what you’re doing.  Slow down, stop fighting with the people in your car.  Don’t drink and drive.  Don’t Smoke weed while driving or before getting in your car.  Stop taking illegal drugs and driving.  Respect other drivers.  Geez,  perhaps understand you’re driving a vehicle that is capable of killing and harming others and yourself.  DRIVING is a serious event.  Take it seriously.

Rant over.

Stay safe out there, Penny

 

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

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.
