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.

Things not to do when getting a mortgage loan in Las VegasYou can unknowingly sabotage your home financing goals by making some obvious and not-so-obvious moves with your finances.  Check out the list below to see if you know the top 10 things NOT to do when you are in the process of buying a home or refinancing.

Do Not:

This year I decided to take a cruise to the Caribbean for my birthday, and I saw some pretty amazing real estate along the way! I thought it would be fun to share some photos of the luxury custom homes I saw overlooking the emerald blue waters surrounding Tortola, Antigua, Barbados, St. Lucia and St. Barts.

Luxury Custom Homes

Our first stop was Tortola, and as we were cruising into port, I spotted these hillside island mansions overlooking grottos, sea caves and private beaches that were accessible only by ladders or elevators. After that we took a boat trip over to Jost Van Dyke and the "Soggy Dollar Bar" (home of the infamous Painkiller rum punch). The sand on this beach is absolutely perfect and the best we found on our whole trip. It felt like walking on velvet.

The Magical Forest in Las Vegas, NVThe Magical Forest has become a cherished Las Vegas Christmas tradition. Originally it began as a small wine and cheese party that drew in passersby with its lovely Christmas lights, causing them to stop on their journey through the city and ask for a moment’s admittance.

But the Magical Forest of today is a far cry from its simple origins. Now it is a major local “happening” that draws thousands of return patrons year after year along with hundreds of volunteers.

And this year, the not-for-profit foundation, Opportunity Village, which sponsors the Magical Forest, has outdone itself once again, orchestrating yet another incredible display of yuletide cheer to raise money for all the services they provide. Opportunity Village has been training those

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

FHA Loan Limits for Las Vegas, NVUrgent FHA Bulletin!

On Friday December 6th HUD announced the new FHA loan limits for 2014 (Mortgagee Letter 2013-43) across the nation. For Clark County, the current single family loan limit of $400,000 has been reduced by more than 28% to $287,500 effective January 1, 2014. 

This move is not unexpected - the FHA loan limits have not been changed since the "boom" years. Usually FHA prices its loans to the median of the local market. The only thing surprising is that they waited this long to decrease the limits in Las Vegas.

But if you are a buyer that has been looking at homes for sale in Las Vegas or Henderson in the $300K-$400K range and you were expecting to make only a 3.5% down payment, you need to decide on a property and make your loan

Homes for Sale in Las Vegas during DecemberSavvy buyers know: the month of the December is THE very best time of the year to pick up deals on real estate in Las Vegas!

Most markets across the United States have a much longer "slow" season for real estate purchases. In the southern sunbelt, which is traditionally snowbird country, the summer months are the best time to pick up a bargain. In the north,  once the winter season starts, home shoppers go dormant until the spring.  

And all markets around the country see a particularly significant slowdown in the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Most people are too busy with holiday parties and shopping to give serious thought to buying a home. But in Las Vegas, which has a steady market pretty much all year round, that's the only time
