Save Your Cash for Christmas!

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

Flipping Homes in Las Vegas NV

Over the past month, the Las Vegas real estate market has been literally flooded with would-be flippers,  making up to 30 bids each per week.  They are offering anywhere between 70 to 80 cents on the dollar on homes listed for sale around the Valley, hoping to get just one offer accepted so they can get started on their road to real estate riches.

Where are all these Donald Trump wanna-bees coming from? What fueled this sudden rush of real estate entrepreneurialism?

Massive radio campaigns have fanned the flipping fire in people all across the country. They are advertising get-rich real estate seminars, and the promos go something like "Sign up now to learn the secrets of house flipping, seats are limited!" But guess what: the seminars are free and I

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

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!

Our sales executives, even the old-timers that have been with Prudential since the beginning, all

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.

Danica Patrick NASCAR 2014 Las VegasVRRROOOOMMMMM.... One of our most experienced real estate agents, Debra Leatham, is also a HUGE racing fan, and every March she camps out over several days at the big NASCAR event in Las Vegas. (Debra and her husband Jim are also avid Corvette enthusiasts, and he built a separate 4 car garage just for his "babies" that rivals anything in the NASCAR pits.) Over 100,000 other racing enthusiasts will also be in attendance, coming from all parts of the world for what is considered NASCAR's best annual competition.

Below is an email Debra sent me yesterday as she got ready for the day's races:

"We headed out on Tuesday with our RV to set up in the Turn1 RV lot.  It is a reserved, dry camping spot and next to the race track.  We have had a spot infield

Mortgage Debt Relief Act ExtensionAccording to Mark Stark, owner of Prudential Americana LLC (one of the largest Prudential franchisees in the country), the Las Vegas real estate market has made a full return to traditional sales. In February 2014, bank foreclosures and short sales combined only made up a meager 14% of total closed transactions.

This is due in large part to the failure of Congress to extend the Mortgage Debt Relief Act at the end of 2014. This Act allowed short sale homeowners to avoid paying taxes on the unpaid balance of their loan when they sold for less than what was owed. Instead, these potential sellers are opting to stay in their homes and make the payments rather than be faced with one huge tax bill.

And, though it is possible (anticipated?) that Congress will
