las vegas buyers agent: Las Vegas Underground House is listed For Sale! - 07/18/13 08:19 PM
Yes, there is a Las Vegas Underground Home and it is listed for sale. Most likely it's one of the most unique properties you'll probably never see. To tour the home as a buyer, your Las Vegas buyer's agent will understandably need to provide your qualifying financials for the $1.7 million asking price. Of course if you read on, I'm able to give you a sneak peek of this home right here.   UPDATE: This home sold on 3/28/14 for $1.15M   This home is truly a bargain, considering there have been estimates that it cost around $10 million to build in 1978, and a 2316 square foot 2 … (0 comments)

las vegas buyers agent: Buying New Las Vegas Homes - Las Vegas Home Builders' Sales Rise - 02/18/13 06:41 PM
 
New Home sales in Las Vegas are on the rise, and said to be up 42% over last year. While not anywhere near the numbers built during the boom years it's been a significant increase. Pricing on both new and resale homes has also been rising, as well as vacant land sale values as Las Vegas home builders scramble to find new parcels to develop.

But some are asking why? There are plenty of homes available in the Las Vegas Valley, tons of foreclosures and short sales, vacant homes everywhere! That's the impression so many have from the media and online … (0 comments)

The internet is a wonderful tool, but unfortunately it's far from perfect. There are hoaxes, spam, scams, and misinformation that you have to endure and must sort out good from bad. Real Estate information isn't exempt, no matter how well known a website may be, and let's face it, these days it appears everyone and their uncle has some sort of online real estate search.
The big question is how accurate is this information. If you live in a market … (3 comments)

New Homes in Las Vegas, just as resale homes, have had prices drop due to the competition from foreclosures and short sales. In some cases these new homes in standing inventory can be priced at roughly $100 a square foot or less, offering a tremendous value. Not only because they have a builder's warranty versus the as-is of a foreclosure, they may also have added upgrades, and in some cases can be finished to the buyer's preferences. They also tend to have less … (0 comments)

The image above may look like just a shot of Mandalay Bay and Luxor Las Vegas, but if you click on it for my 1920x1080 HD screen background, you'll see thousands of rooftops behind them. That is just a sliver of the Las Vegas Valley, only one section to the west. While Summerlin takes up 22,500 acres on that side of the valley, and to the north and south of this shot, it only includes an area closest to the Spring Mountains.

las vegas buyers agent: Real Estate Jumping in Las Vegas - Aria at City Center Opening Pictures / Backgrounds - 02/28/10 05:13 PM
 

Yes, it's been a while since my last blog post, but with good reason. 2009 had Las Vegas Real Estate sales moving at a near record pace of the housing boom years, with home buyers and investors grabbing up the bargains. The competition has been fierce, particularly for homes under $200k. Multiple offers are the norm, and the large percentage of cash buyers have been king. While last year was a banner year for sales, the market still hasn't shown any sings of slowing, with Jan 2010 up 24.1% over the previous year.
New homes are also attracting interest, particularly … (4 comments)
