Yes, that's right, Las Vegas foreclosure listings are free. You don't have to pay fees for lists or subscriptions. You can search yourself, or I'll gladly send them to your email, with your specific requirements and price range all updated as new listings are available, with no obligation. Why? Simply because I pay to have listings for my clients, and glad to share them. If you use them it will save money, and save both you and myself valuable time and a lot of aggravation. I've written about this before, but as the Las Vegas home market continues to heat (7 comments)
The 'Help Me I'm Drowning Seminar' on foreclosures was presented by National and Local Media Legal Analyst, Las Vegas Attorney Robert Massi. This free and informative seminar was held at the Paseo Verde Library in the Green Valley Ranch community in Henderson.

Click for Larger Image MGM Mirage City Center hotels began taking reservations for 2 of the $9.2 billion project's hotels. It appears Vdara will open first, as it is taking reservations for October 1, 2009. Aria Resort and Casino is currently taking reservations beginning December 17, 2009. This seems to follow what I had heard, that they will stagger the openings.

OK, so how does Las Vegas Locals Specials, Art, and Networking fit together? It's all thanks to Tom Wilkinson of Vegas4Locals.com, a website I've mentioned here in the past. It's a long time favorite of Sparky's Coupon page, that crazy 'Elvis' looking Jack Russell on the right of my blog here at Active Rain. Tom's site offers printable Las Vegas discount coupons, and Ebay Auctions of shows, attractions, tours and more. (And to let you in on yet another little Vegas secret, you don't have to be a local to use them) Of course there's still more, the site is (3 comments)

Click for Larger Image That's right. You may have thought Terry Fator was doing his first new Las Vegas show last night at the Mirage, but he didn't. Instead, he opened at the $10 million dollar USBC Bowling Lanes at Cashman Center.

Las Vegas was the #1 Relocation Destination for 2008 according to Relocation.com, and they're predicting it will be #1 again in 2009. Because of foreclosures, home prices are now very affordable. Even by last fall, National City Bank's study found that on average Las Vegas homes were undervalued. No surprise why Las Vegas home sales have been going up every month over the previous year. January 2009 for example, home sales statistics from the Greater Las Vegas Assn. of REALTORS® showed they were 126% higher than in January 2008. Those 2008 sales numbers had been up over the previous year, (2 comments)
Click for Larger Image While the national economic downturn hasn't been pleasant, it has created new opportunities, and Las Vegas has some new jobs coming to town. I've mentioned the jobs in hospitality coming on line in 2009 - 2010, with M Resort opening in March with nearly 2000 hires, 12,000 more jobs coming to MGM Mirage's City Center later this year, followed by thousands more expected from Fontainebleau and Cosmopolitan Resorts. These jobs have historically created multiple spin-off jobs in the local area to not only support the properties, but additional services needed for more business and residents added in (6 comments)

It was held at the Clark County Museum on Boulder Highway, and hosted by District G Commissioner and Commission Chairman Rory Reid, and District A Commissioner Steve Sisolak.
