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.
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.

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.

just a fun fact blog today, cause everything in my life is related to Real Estate in some way shape or form. For example: as I sit here blogging about Las Vegas Homes for sale and what is important about what my readers want to know about our Las Vegas market. Yes, I’ve seen housing the same color as my skittles. Many of them actually. Most of these homes are located in housing areas that have NO HOA’s.
I just opened a little pack of bite size skittles. Really never paying attention to anything but the love of them and how they make me happy. I glanced down to see the pretty colors sitting there. I was struck with wonder, how many skittles are there in this little package, and really what flavors are they?
13 were in this pack. I’m going to go get another lil package and see if there’s 13 in all the packs or if the number varies. There were more green apple bite size candies in this group.
Here’s hoping you enjoy your candy too. Take care everyone. Call me if you’d like to know more about Skittles and Our Las Vegas, Summerlin, Henderson, Green Valley, North Las Vegas, SW and NW housing market and what’s out there.

P.S. I had to open up another lil skittle package. This one too has 13 pieces in it. 4 orange, 5 grape, 2 lemon, 1 strawberry and 1 green apple.
2 hours later, I just had to out of pure curiosity I opened another little package of Skittles, this one has 15 pieces: 1 orange, 2 lemon, 5 strawberry, 3 grape and 4 green apple. that’s it for me and the skittles, for today anyway!

From my experience which is at least 16 years being a full-time Realtor, here’s what I’ve seen:
Referrals: referrals are awesome, most of the time it’s a win-win for both buyer, seller and the agent. Referrals can be from past clients, lenders, friends, co-workers, church members, the list goes on and on.
Internet: Well, I can tell you I’ve received a lot of clients from my website and other Internet sites. I blog about what I think is important to people and they enjoy reading what I have to say.
