If you list and sell short sales in Las Vegas like I do, you already know it's common to spend 1-2 months negotiating a short sale approval and proudly proclaim to your seller, the buyer's agent, title, and the buyer's lender: "Short Sale Approved!" ...only to hear a few days later from the buyer's agent, "...uhm, well...the buyer decided to cancel".

How'd I come up with that?  In short...We've consistently had about 11,000 homes in contract at any given time, but we're … (5 comments)

Each week I spend a little time answering Las Vegas real estate questions for people who have yet to choose an agent, are looking for a second opinion, or couldn't get an answer from their own agent.  Often the questions are asked on sites like trulia and zillow, and I thought why not post my answers on my own blog as well?

las vegas real estate: Seller Representative Specialist - Classes at GLVAR - 06/23/09 12:24 PM

The instructor, Lee Barrett was terrific and had a wealth of information to share and I also learned quite a bit from meeting and speaking with other agents in the class.  I enjoyed the atmosphere created … (3 comments)
