Did You Miss These Tax Deductions?

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014 at 7:03pm. 141 Views, 0 Comments.

Buy a Home in Las Vegas for Tax DeductionsOne of my favorite things to do each year, is to park outside the Post Office on April 15th and watch the parade of cars as last minute procrastinators get in line to post their taxes before the deadline. Miraculously, everyone seems to be in a pretty good mood - after all, we are all in this tax thing together. Jokes and music fill the air, and the more enterprising even form impromptu tailgate parties.

But no one really likes to pay taxes, and if you found yourself reeling from sticker shock when your accountant handed you your 2013 tax bill,  maybe it's time to reconsider the tax benefits of owning a home. Here are just the highlights of the major deductions you could have used if you owned, bought or sold a home in 2013.

So if tax time has got you down, maybe you should consider moving and buying a home in Las Vegas. The following are excerpts from an article posted on The Credit Card Insider this month about paying taxes. One thing I couldn’t help but notice: when you get to the list of the eight cities considered the “best” cities for people who hate to pay taxes, Las Vegas and Mount Pleasant are the only two where you don’t need a winter coat!

Canadians: Use Your Home Equity to Buy a Vacation Home in Vegas!

Monday, April 7th, 2014 at 4:17pm. 308 Views, 0 Comments.

shoveling snow in CanadaSo you’re from Canada, eh? And to get out of the bitter cold winters, you want to buy real estate in Las Vegas. 

We all know how hard it is for Canadians to obtain a mortgage in the US nowadays. Las Vegas mortgage lenders restrict property purchases by foreign nationals to one vacation/second home with a down payment of 35% or more, and the buyer can’t own any other property in the States. (Of course that means no investment properties at all.) 

One way around the US mortgage restrictions is to refinance property you already own in Canada and pay cash for your purchase here in Las Vegas. Below is a letter explaining the process from Canadian mortgage broker Rob Smith who specializes in Canadian refinances: 

“As a result of recent

Get Top Dollar: Cheap Tips to Make Your Home So Nice, You Don't Want to Sell!

Friday, April 4th, 2014 at 7:42am. 372 Views, 0 Comments.

Selling a Home in Las VegasAfter 30 years of selling real estate in Las Vegas, I can state for a fact: Most buyers have ZERO imagination. When buyers tour a home for sale, most have a very difficult time visualizing anything other than the condition it is in currently. While a small percentage actually prefer a fixer-upper so they can get what they really want and not pay for someone else's taste, 95% really want a move in condition home and are willing to pay top dollar for it. In fact, many buyers in our area say they only want brand new homes, but if you show them one that is model perfect with everything already done, they will jump on it.

So if you are thinking of selling your home later this spring, NOW is the time to get it ready. Late spring is traditionally the time

New Home Developments Sprouting in Las Vegas Valley Again!

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014 at 11:23am. 311 Views, 0 Comments.

While the resale market for Las Vegas single family homes seems to be holding steady at around 6500 listings actively on the market (not yet under contract) and still tilted towards a seller's market, Las Vegas new home builders are finally opening up new developments around the Valley. Spring in Sprung!

With the much improved economic climate and a still lower-than-average inventory of resale homes, a number of new home builders have taken advantage of the situation by releasing more new models.  And a couple are introducing unique twists to their floor plans to lure new home buyers.

For example, Shea Homes will be introducing their new Shea3D homes on April 5th and 6th from 11 am to 3 pm.

According to Kyle Tibbitts, general manager

Meet our newest Tonnesen Team member, baby Mia!

Saturday, March 29th, 2014 at 12:01pm. 323 Views, 0 Comments.

Mia - daughter of Las Vegas Realtor Brandon JohnsonWe'd like to formally introduce you to our brand new "team member" Mia Johnson, daughter of Las Vegas Realtor Brandon Johnson and his wife Alicia, who was born on March 27th at 10:02 pm weighing in at 8 pounds even. We believe in training our agents right from the cradle, so Mia will be able to show homes, write contracts and negotiate deals by the age of five (though she will require a chauffeur until age 16 when she gets her driver's license.)

In addition, we expect Mia to be on the Pro Golf tour as her dad Brandon is a golf afficionado and expert player in his own right - when he has the time. (Not that he has too much time for golf lately. He has been WAY too busy with his real estate clients, though his current buyers were nice enough to let

Buy Real Estate Like Warren Buffet!

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014 at 12:56pm. 402 Views, 0 Comments.

Invest in Real Estate Like Warren BuffetMost real estate investors follow the latest fads when determining what they will buy. They usually focus on short term gains rather than the overall big picture, and tend to buy in environments of economic euphoria rather than environments of economic doom and gloom. They go with the herd mentality.

Warren Buffet’s credentials as an investor need no explaining. And recently he shared the basis of his success with the shareholders of Berkshire Hathaway in his annual update letter. His strategies for investing are simple and easily followed for those that have the patience and persistence to carry them out.

In his letter to shareholders, he used the example of a farm he had purchased, even though he knew nothing about farming. But, by relying

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices - Las Vegas, NV Real EstateEvery year in March, Prudential Americana hosts a huge awards ceremony blowout to honor the outstanding agents in the company.
