las vegas homes: Retiring to Las Vegas - Empty Nests May Have Equity Again - 01/27/14 04:42 AM
Does YOUR Las Vegas empty nest now have equity again?  If so, If so, retiring to Las Vegas may now be possible again.
The progression of owning a Las Vegas home different in “the old days” – you built up equity in your family home, perhaps even paying it off, and when the kids left you sold and took that equity wealth and down-sized to a more manageable low-maintenance home.  You got all of the benefits and luxuries of a low-maintenance dream home and you could pay cash for it and pocket the difference.

las vegas homes: The Goldilocks Principle Applied to Las Vegas Land Buyers - 01/22/14 04:16 AM
The Goldilocks Principle Applied to Las Vegas Land Buyers In the world of land development, the Goldilocks principle commands that the acquisition of land must fall within certain value-margins and certain inventory-ranges – as opposed to extremes. In the boom-bust style of the Las Vegas real estate market, following this principle is extremely difficult.

Let’s take the average large-sized Las Vegas home-builder who may build roughly 500 … (0 comments)

las vegas homes: The Death of the Las Vegas Short Sale? - 11/21/13 09:48 AM
Under the “2007 Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act and Debt Cancellation”, doing a short sale usually made tons of sense – even though the deficiency that was waived by the bank became “income” to the seller, the seller also usually got an offsetting tax credit for that income (you need to chat with a tax expert).  But since this Act is set to expire December 31 2013, and there are no signs in the political winds about it being extended again, the big questions is ...

las vegas homes: For Las Vegas Homes There’s a Coming Boom or Bust or Boom or … - 11/08/13 04:22 AM

 
The market for Las Vegas homes is sort of like an old gold rush town. The phrase Boom and Bust came from the old gold rushes – it indicates an economic situation with sharp sustained growth, followed by sharp decline, follows by sharp growth again, et cetera. When Vegas rose it rose huge – when [… READ MORE ...]

las vegas homes: Las Vegas Real Estate Investor Appetite - 10/25/13 07:37 AM
It’s odd.  When the Las Vegas real estate market was pounding upward at 2 to 3% per month, hedge funds and other investors were snapping up properties at a breathtaking pace … suddenly, though, it seems they’ve pulled back and this has the local Las Vegas real estate news sources proclaiming “they’re fleeing!”
This type of news is a load of irresponsible horse-hockey!
Long investors want to buy low and sell high – if there was “fleeing” ... [READ MORE] ...

las vegas homes: Standing in Godzillas Footprint – re: the Las Vegas Real Estate Market - 06/10/13 11:44 AM
I had a thought today about the Las Vegas real estate market.  At times, we can be so close to something that we cannot see it for what it is – if you were standing in Godzilla’s footprint would you know it? *SEE ORIGINALBLOG POST HERE

Fervent arguments are offered that the Las Vegas real estate bubble is about to burst again, or that inventory is about to grow big again due to pent-up foreclosures, or that we have reached a pricing apex … (0 comments)
