Money for Mortgage Loans in Las VegasBeen looking at homes for sale in Las Vegas, but just don't have any extra cash? If you or someone you know has been struggling to come up with the down payment and closing costs for a mortgage, we have great news. There is a new 1/2% down FHA loan that may be your answer. 

You could literally get into a home with no money at all! This new mortgage loan program is a combination of a 96.5% FHA first mortgage and a 3% second mortgage. The seller is allowed to pay all of the buyer's closing costs, AND the 1/2% down payment can even be gift funds from a relative or close friend. The interest rate is a little higher than the standard FHA loan, but you can have a non occupant co borrower to help you qualify. Basically this

One of our most experienced real estate agents, Jackie Goodman, is an avid hiker. It's not unusual for her to answer her phone at the top of a cliff somewhere on a sunny Sunday morning. I asked her, "why hiking?" and this was her reply:

Las Vegas real estate agent hikes for healthI never enjoyed traditional exercising, even as a girl in high school. I found something lacking when running on the treadmill going nowhere fast. But I did like to walk outdoors, and when I wanted more of a challenge, I started hiking. 

When my daughter and 12 year old grandson moved away about 4 years ago I lost my hiking partner, and it wasn’t fun hiking alone.  So I searched on line and found Las Vegas Hikers - that was truly my lucky day. I have been a member of the Hiking Las Vegas Meetup Group since 2010.  And

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.

Casa de Shenandoah, former residence of Las Vegas icon Wayne Newton since 1968, has been "reorganized" out of bankruptcy and is now up for sale for a modest $70M! The property is located just down the street from the Primm Estate, which is also currently up for sale, though only for a mere $16,500,000. Here's an aerial photo I took of the 36 acre ranch estate from the air, coincidentally just a few days before it went on the market. You can see the jet parked outside, ready to whisk you away!

Liberace Mansion for Sale Las Vegas
An historical remnant of Las Vegas’ colorful heyday made the news this week: the 15,000 square foot Liberace Mansion. Built in 1962, Liberace purchased the mansion in 1974 and made it uniquely his own. Containing only two bedrooms but a whopping 10 bathrooms, the mansion still exhibits evidence of Liberace's original decor, including large piano key decorations, ancient Greek pillars and a bedroom ceiling adorned with a $1.6 million reproduction of Michelangelo’s painting from the Sistine Chapel.

Selling for $3.7 million back in 2006 but going to foreclosure in 2010 and sitting vacant since, the sadly neglected property was purchased last Friday for a scant $500k by Martyn Ravenhill, a British property salesman and avid Liberace fan. Martyn, celebrating
