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. There is a lavish breakfast, the mimosas flow freely, and our affiliated Home Benefits vendors display their wares and have the agents draw for prizes ranging from gift cards to rounds of golf.   

But today when we entered the ballroom at the Encore, instead of “Pru Blue,” the entire ballroom was decorated in shades of burgundy and cream. And Mark Stark, owner of our company, made the much anticipated announcement official: as of April 29th, we will become part of the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices family owned by Warren Buffet!

The latest statistics are in: with interest rates hovering around 4.5% for a 30-year fixed rate mortgage, buying is 38% cheaper than renting as a national average, down from being 44% cheaper one year ago.

For example, if your rent is currently $1200 per month and you purchase a $175k home with a 3.5% down payment at a 4.5% interest rate, you would save approximately $8200 per year if home prices appreciated a modest 4% per year, or almost $50k savings over 6 years.

They say that a picture is worth a 1000 words – in real estate, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Even keeping in mind that real estate agents are not professional photographers, over the years we have seen some real doozies posted on the Internet! Those are the ones that are certainly not going to sell the house, but they will leave a lasting impression on the viewer.

I was reminded of that again today when I came across the site, HookedOnHouses.com. (This is now one of my favorite sites!) In addition to a wonderful section on celebrity homes, they have a collection of some truly awesome BAD listing photos that make your jaw drop and leave you shaking your head.

Las Vegas Shadow InventoryIs there really a shadow inventory in the Las Vegas real estate market? If so, when will these properties be released to the market? What will happen to prices when/if it happens?

As real estate agents, these are questions we are asked almost every day, and a number of buyers have stated they are waiting until prices "go back down" before purchasing.

But will prices go down? Prices skyrocketed during the boom and then plummeted below pre-boom levels during the recession. Las Vegas has seen appreciation of 30% over the past year due to low inventory, but we are not quite yet back to pre-boom pricing yet., and experts feel that prices will continue to rise slowly until they reach this level again. (Before the boom, the prices of homes for sale in Las
