las vegas real estate: Judicial Foreclosures are now here in Nevada - 08/21/12 06:22 AM
Las Vegas Homeowners Delinquent on their Mortgages may be in for a Very Rude Surprise Las Vegas homeowners delinquent on their home loans that have been waiting around for something to happen before doing something such as a Las Vegas short sale may soon get their wish.
Unfortunately, that something may not be what they were expecting.
Foreclosure mediation and then AB 284 going into effect on October 1st, 2011 may have created a false sense of security for Las Vegas homeowners not paying their mortgages. For the past several decades, Nevada has primarily been a Non-Judicial foreclosure process state with … (1 comments)

las vegas real estate: Las Vegas Real Estate Reality... - 07/27/12 06:49 PM
With What is Going on with Las Vegas Real Estate... If I received $1.00 for every out of state caller or e-mail that has made this statement or something similar for the past three months... I think my income goals for the year would have been met already.
I certainly get where these statements are coming from because I read or watch the same things in the national media that callers are getting their information from. (Normally with a good scream or two on how clueless the so called "real estate experts" are...)
Heck... even our local media is pretty much … (2 comments)

las vegas real estate: Las Vegas Real Estate - 04/04/12 07:22 PM
Las Vegas Real Estate Reality "I'm working with several Las Vegas real estate agents sending me over properties to consider... and whoever sends me over the best property is going to get our business".
Not even sure how I want to respond to this particular Las Vegas real estate buyer considering the Las Vegas real estate buyers are only qualified up to $100,000.
Don't even get me started on the gazillion requests I've received in the past week from out of state buyers... All of which seem to have "We know the real estate market conditions in Las Vegas" which always … (2 comments)

las vegas real estate: Major Las Vegas Real Estate Meltdown Avoided! - 06/29/11 11:34 PM
Major Real Estate Disaster Avoided! And a valuable lesson learned.... No.. this has nothing to do with Countrywide doing what a responsible lender should have done before  Bank of America was coerced into buying Countrywide and ended up paying another $8 Billion dollars plus for a crap company that helped BK millions of Americans... (Thanks a lot Senator "Countrywide Chris Dodd"!!) This has to do with silly ole me losing my portable zip drive somewhere... my portable little zip drive that I can pretty much use anywhere, anyplace. On that little portable zip drive is over 20 Las Vegas short sale … (11 comments)

las vegas real estate: How will the Real Estate Crash Shape Your City? - 02/14/09 06:21 PM
Fascinating new article that came out in The Atlantic full of historical trends to support theories:
How The Crash Will Reshape America
I saw a city or two that I used to live in but the one that stood out is Las Vegas for obvious reasons:
"But in the heady days of the housing bubble, some Sun Belt cities-Phoenix and Las Vegas are the best examples-developed economies centered largely on real estate and construction. With sunny weather and plenty of flat, empty land, they got caught in a classic boom cycle. Although these places drew tourists, retirees, and some industry-firms seeking … (0 comments)

las vegas real estate: BusinessWeek Forecasts Trickle Up Theory - 01/02/09 06:51 PM
Not In My Real Estate Market
That certainly was the consensus over a year ago when the bad news/fortunes of real estate speculators in markets such as Florida, Las Vegas Real Estate and Arizona made front page news. A recent tour of Las Vegas foreclosures with an out of state buyer brought up the statement of... "Wow.. I guess what I've been seeing in the news is true"..
Yes it is true. What started out as bad fortunes blamed on speculators whose speculations did not pan out and they walked away from their New Home "Investments" has touched every single neighborhood in … (0 comments)

las vegas real estate: The Collection of Government Stupidity - 12/09/08 08:40 PM
History Repeats Itself.
Wow! We are in such a point of history in our lives it's just amazing watching what is happening with our leaders who have zero clue in Finance, History or Economics play their usual role in politics pandering for votes (and lobbyists money) that we could witness a collapse.
The warning signs are all there and the printing machines to pay for all of these great programs is running on overtime.

las vegas real estate: Selling with Soul in Real Estate... In the Current Crisis... - 11/29/08 12:15 AM
I have nothing to do with Jennifer Allan or her programs about selling with soul when it comes to real estate but in the current situation (especially in Las Vegas) soul is everything...
I always kind of smile when I think about selling real estate with soul primarily because of that cute Denver smile. Yes... it's kind of an infactuation that I'll honestly admit to having after reading some of her posts and I just kind of smile that somebody is offering true passion in the real estate industry. It's an age old quality that seperates real estate agents from the ones … (2 comments)

"Sure, how well your agent markets the property matters. But even the best agent in the world can't fool today's buyer and a good buyer's agent.
