$300k and up Homes selling Las Vegas, Henderson, Summerlin, SW, NW, North Las Vegas, New Homes and Resales. CALL Penny O’Brien NOW, 702.321.9383

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017


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

VA home loan here in Las Vegas. Thank you for your service.

Wednesday, April 27th, 2016


Hi folks:

Today let’s talk about VA loans.  Most Agents and sellers I believe don’t understand the importance that they give to our Veterans clients. VA loans are a  little bit different than your standard conventional or FHA or loan goes but come on give it a little effort and go with the flow.   There are a few things that the program doesn’t allow the buyer to pay for.  As written below:

  • Attorney
  • Underwriting
  • Escrow
  • Processing
  • Document
  • Tax Service

There’s really not that many issues that need to be addressed. I believe agents are lazy and don’t want to go the extra mile to help their client get a VA loan if that is what the client wants.

Many buyers are discouraged from using their opportunity.  I say, go for it.  Use it if it’s the best fit for you.

Here are a few things the buyer can pay for:

  • A  Appraisal
  • C  Credit Report
  • T  Title Insurance
  • O Origination Fee
  • R  Recording Fee
  • S  Survey

The VA loan can be confusing but as long as you’re working with an lender who knows what they are doing then all should go ok.  I hope this was of some help to you.  if you feel your agent isn’t helping you with what your needs are you do have the right to fire them.  Do what’s best for you.   And, as always,  Thank you for you service.  Penny

Hi there,

Where else in the world can you go to and experience NY, Paris, Planet Hollywood, Venetian, Treasure Island, Malls galore, Food galore, shows galore, pools galore? We have No state tax, 24 hours a day almost anything and everything you want to do activities. Sunshine something like 325  days a year. Palm trees, casinos, sunsets out of this world.  No insects per say, clean cars most of the time.  The location of Las Vegas is great if you’d like to travel to UT for a day, perhaps to go play in the snow.  Or, California is near by if you’d like to experience the Pacific Ocean, and all the California has to offer.

Have I done a good job of convincing you to move?  If so, I’ll help you find the place of your dreams.

Come on, move here if you haven’t already, you’ll love it.  Our homes prices are very reasonable.

Enjoy your life. Penny

You should try out my Mortgage Calculator within my website for homes here in LV. You can plug in numbers and see what your monthly house payment will be.

Friday, April 19th, 2013


If you’d like to play around with what your mortgage  payment might be, head to my web site  and find the Mortgage Calculator Link on the left side of the page. 

It’s easy to use.  For example:  when it asks for the property tax to be entered you can estimate it by figuring 1% of the price of the house.  If you’re interested in a $100k home your taxes will be around $84 a month.

For Homeowners Insurance:  You can estimate about $300-$5oo a year for a home valued at $100k

After you get excited about the possibility that you can afford to buy a place.  Give me a call and lets get it going.

Thank you for your time, Penny
