Today I just want to provide you with a quick market update on some of the exciting things we’ve been seeing lately in real estate.

Our supply is still very low, especially for homes listed under $300,000. We only have about a month and a half worth of inventory, so things are extremely competitive between the buyers who are out looking for homes.

When we get to price points in the $300,000 and above range, the market balances out a little bit. Sellers are still seeing an advantage, but buyers have

Housing is easily the biggest expense most people have, and increasing rent prices in expensive coastal cities like Los Angeles are driving more and more people to smaller midwest communities and to a number of other mid-range cities just like Las Vegas. 

According to recent 2016 census figures, there was a noticeable spike in the number of people who left Los Angeles and Orange counties for either lesser expensive parts the state, or simply left the state altogether. 

Fleeing higher-cost cities for a more affordable place to live is hardly a new trend, and something cold-weather cities see fairly regularly. But what makes Las Vegas unique is that more and more home buyers are coming specifically for cheaper real estate prices. Furthermore, Las

This holiday season the City of Las Vegas comes alive with much more than just its normal glitz and glamour. In fact, the 2017 season is sure to bring a generous selection of shows, events and more, well beyond the infamous Vegas Strip.

Nov 10-Jan 7 

In fact, the big casinos of the Strip have nothing on the Glittering Lights of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Noted as the largest drive-thru light show in the entire state, take a car ride or tram ride past millions of lights, spread out across 2.5-miles of the speedway. The lights are on right now and stay that way through early next year.

I just wanted to take a minute to wish you a happy Thanksgiving!


As we approach Thanksgiving, now is a great time to reflect on what we are grateful for.

I am grateful for my family, my wife, my friends, and my past and future clients. I just wanted to take a minute to wish each and every one of you a happy Thanksgiving.

I hope that you have some time this season to sit down and take stock of what you are grateful for. I once heard a saying that goes, “It’s impossible to be angry and grateful at the same time.”

I try to think of that saying when I am presented with any of life’s challenges. I always stop and think of what I am grateful for; it really puts things in perspective.

It’s impossible to be angry and grateful at the

Buying a new home is stressful, especially when you have to sell your current home first.

One question I’ve been getting asked a lot is, “I want to buy another house, but I need to sell my current one first. What should I do?”

This is actually a situation that I’ve been helping a lot of people out with over the years. The first thing we’ll want to do is find out what your current home is worth. We’ll take a look at its condition, then compare it to other homes on the market that are similar. Once we come up with a realistic price, we’ll determine what you’ll net after expenses.

Based on that net, a mortgage lender will be able to determine many things, including how much you’ll need to put down on the new home and what your monthly payments will be. In

Should you hire a real estate agent to sell your home? I would say yes, and there are a number of reasons why.

Why should you hire a real estate agent to sell your home?

An agent can also help you with marketing. Agents have access to hundreds of websites through their MLS and their company. We will put your home on the major search portals that buyers look at these days, such as Zillow, Trulia,
