Carson Valley: A Little Slice of History - 02/18/09 09:30 AM
This is a excellent atricle, great informationa nd lovely photos. Christianne did a great job! Enjoy! Via Christianne Gordon (RE/MAX Realty Affiliates): The Carson Valley has a rich historical heritage dating back to the 1850's, when Genoa, formerly known as Mormon Station, was the first settlement, before Nevada was even a state! Nevada became a state on October 31, 1861, when it was formally separated from the Utah Territory. Today, the state still celebrates it's statehood each year. The state celebrates Nevada Day on the last Friday of October, and banks, post offices, schools, and all other government offices are closed. Nevada's Humble (0 comments)
How Do We Compare Homes By Comparing Price Per Square Foot? - 02/18/09 09:20 AM
I found this information to be very interesting and an excellent source to share with new buyers! Thanks Jim! Via Jim Valentine (RE/MAX Realty Affiliates): It is common practice in this region to compare and buy homes on a square foot basis, but that can often lead to some confusion. If you are looking at a 1,500 square foot home, for example, you can find anything from two to five bedrooms. The garage can be non-existent, or have a three car capacity. And of course there is the matter of location. A 1,500 square foot home in Monte Carlo will cost you $6,630,000! (0 comments)
What are the mysterious "Fireballs" over Texas! - 02/16/09 04:22 AM
What are the mysterious "Fireballs" over Texas! Just read this and thought, "What's Really Up? How about those of you down there, let's here from you! What's going on? Are there any first hand sightings? As a native Nevadan ... I'm clued into UFO's and the mystery they bring. So, what's going on down there? (7 comments)
Hey Harry Reid ... Here's What's Really Happening in Nevada! Look What Counrtywide Did today! Another One Bites the Dust! - 02/16/09 03:20 AM
Hey Harry! Are You Listening? Read this! Via Lisa Wetzel (RE/MAX Realty Affiliates): I lost a short sale today ... Good Ol' COUNTRYWIDE! 90 days to negotiate and ... in a rapidly falling market! The unemployed seller is 72 year's old, has worked hard all his life. He has no vehicle, lost his company truck, and is doing his level best to hold on to what little he has left. His credit is shot, he'll never buy another house, his best hope is to have enough money to rent for the rest of his life! He did the honorable thing ... ask for a (0 comments)
Our Home Hasn't Sold ... Should We Hold An Auction? - 02/16/09 02:51 AM
This is an interesting topic. Via Jim Valentine (RE/MAX Realty Affiliates): Real Estate auctions have been around a long time, but rarely have they occurred in our market ... until now. We participated in two different local real estate auctions last weekend. Are they a substitute for a traditional selling process? That depends on your specific ownership status and property situation. One of our bank-owned listings was part of a 300-plus home auction based out of Las Vegas. Advertised opening bids were low - some in Southern Nevada as low as $500 and $1,000. Our listing opened at $89,000, list price is $229,415. (0 comments)
