Las Vegas Real Estate News

A True Story from Debra Leatham>

At a recent closing where I represented the Buyer, who lived in the San Diego area, he had to sign his escrow documents via a Signing Service chosen by the Title Company.

After signing his documents mid-morning on a Monday, he took the wire instructions to his bank, Wells Fargo, just before 5:00.

Both the Teller and my Buyer double checked the wire instructions and the bank form. The Teller guaranteed that the wire would go out first thing in the morning and should be at US Bank, the Title Company bank, by noon. This would facilitate a Tuesday closing as his documents should have been back to Escrow on Tuesday morning.

When the wire did not show up by noon, no-one but me, seemed concerned. The transfer from

Neon. Lots of neon!

It makes the Las Vegas skyline more unique than almost any other city in the world. No wonder the high-rise market is predicted to explode over the next few years. And with over 35 old and new towers to choose from, buyers can spend from the $200Ks to $15 million for a luxury Strip view property penthouse. Along with the many price points, there are also many unit options and amenities for buyers to consider too.

The NFL Raiders stadium is well under construction. It's the reason that according to Uri Vaknin a partner at KRE Capital, the Panorama and the One Las Vegas have done so well. It's 100 percent due to the proximity of the Raiders (stadium). 'Even if you're not a Raider fan, you see the

I had the pleasure of meeting Lamberto Valdez and his Wife on short notice as they pulled into Las Vegas with no knowledge of the Las Vegas Market. They told me that the last Realtor they met didn't show them any other areas but the Strip.  I had them get into my car and off we went to view all of Las Vegas has to offer. We drove through some of the most desirable communities as in Aliante, Providence, Summerlin, Golden Knights Arena, Rhodes Ranch, Southern Highlands, Mountains Edge, Lake Las Vegas, Green Valley, Anthem, Seven Hills, and Macdonalds Ranch. They loved the fact they saw new locations that they never heard about. I always show my client's the value of my services to go beyond what they expect from a Professional Las Vegas Realtor.

I was doing an open house and a first-time home buyer came in. We developed a rapport at the open house as we discussed what she was looking for in a home. We later met at my office to discuss her options. When the time was right to move forward, we looked at a few homes and quickly found the perfect one. I knew at the time of showing that it was a probate sale and since I was unfamiliar with the process, I promptly did the research required to be able to represent her in the best way. After several months, we, at last, had the hearing at the courthouse. I joined her in court, in part to observe the process firsthand, but mostly because she was uneasy about going alone. The court approved and accepted our offered price. From start to finish it was over 3

Last July, I met with the Asemota family. Godwin and Angela Asemota were working with two other agents in town at the time. We had my standard buyers consultation and over the past 8 months, I have kept in touch. They were very happy that I sent them articles on not only what's happening in Las Vegas and but other pertinent home information too. This past Friday, we met again and they signed a Buyers Brokerage Agreement hiring me. After a day of house hunting, the Asemotas are convinced that I have not only real estate knowledge but an overall knowledge of the Las Vegas valley. I'm proud to call them my clients and because of my BBA, I no longer share them with any other agents.

Agents across the US are getting calls from would-be clients who realize buying is suddenly getting cheaper

Like an avalanche growing larger as it tumbles down a mountain, real estate agents are seeing swelling demand from buyers as mortgage interest ratesplummet and — contrary to what some observers previously expected — home buying actually gets cheaper.

The latest news of falling mortgage rates came Thursday, when a new survey from Freddie Mac revealed that the average for a 30-year fix-rate mortgage had dropped from 4.28 percent to 4.06 percent — the biggest single-week decline since 2008. The rate drops are tied to the Federal Reserve’s belief that the economy is poised to slow down, according to an economist from Freddie Mac.

But concerns

We know how important we are to the transaction — it's time everyone else knows too

  A vast majority of today’s consumers believe that selling real estate is an easy business. Many believe sites like Zillow provide all the information they need to locate the right house and close the transaction. Sadly, both groups are seriously mistaken.

There are three primary reasons consumers hold these beliefs:

  1. The reality TV shows have glamorized the business of showing properties and writing offers without showing the behind-the-scenes work it takes to close a transaction.
  2. Many of the technology companies promote the belief that an algorithm is the only thing needed to help a consumer locate and then
