Today I want to talk about iBuyers. iBuyers are companies that offer to buy your home saying that they will make it easy for you. They usually offer easy transaction dates, financial savings, and the ability to name your closing date.

Let me tell you a little bit about a client of mine that met with an iBuyer. They promised to help sell her home for a specific dollar amount for a certain fee. After I met with this client, I was not only able to sell her property for $10,000 more than their estimate, but I

If you want to net more money from the sale of your home, there are a few cost-effective tips that can help you earn more while spending less.  

  1. Boost your curb appeal. When a prospective buyer approaches your property, it’s important to make a good first impression. One of the best ways to achieve this is by cleaning up your landscaping. Remove weeds, add fresh rock or mulch, water your lawn, and trim bushes and trees to really boost your curb appeal.

  2. Fix up your driveway. Power-washing your driveway and removing any stains or tire marks can make your home look much nicer,

The lower price brackets are favoring sellers in our market, while the higher price brackets are favoring buyers.

As we make our way into spring, our market is heating up. How do things look in different price ranges, though?

Single-family homes under $300,000 are seeing the most activity right now. We’re seeing a lot of bidding wars and buyers paying above appraisal price in this range. Buyers as a whole are having a tough time finding decent homes in this segment, and with less than a month’s supply of inventory, I don’t see that outlook changing anytime soon.

Between $300,000 and $500,000,

Is purchasing a new home a better idea than purchasing a resale home? Yes and no. It depends on your situation.

Buying a new home does offer some advantages that you won’t get with a resale home. New homes are more energy efficient, and many have the open-floor concepts that people are looking for today. However, a new home could get quite pricey. Landscaping could cost you a lot, and the model home you see might give you some false hope about what’s going to be included in the home you buy.

This is where a great real estate agent can come in handy. They can help you determine whether a new or

In case you haven’t noticed, the new construction real estate market around Las Vegas has been robust over the last several years, and 2017 was once again no different. According to a recent report, new construction home builders closed just over 9,401 new home sales in Clark County last year, which is a 16.2% jump compared to new home sales in 2016.  

The report, which was originally released from Las Vegas-based Home Builders Research, also noted that the median sales price of new construction homes once again hit a record high, reaching $371,782 in December and representing a 10% spike year-over-year.  

One issue facing the new construction market in Las Vegas heading into 2018, however, seems to be a shortage of future development opportunities.

Can Zillow give you an accurate home value? In a word, no.

Let’s face it, most of us have used Zillow’s Zestimate feature in the past to get a home value. In the age of instant gratification, it’s so easy and satisfying to get an instant valuation. But is it accurate?

In short, no. I’ve seen many studies confirm this, including one that says Zillow is within 5% of a home’s actual value only 50% of the time. On a $300,000 home, that means being $15,000 too low or too high half of the time. That’s a lot of money to leave on the table. Trusting the Zestimate could also cause you to severely underprice or overprice your home.

Zillow doesn’t track remodels or improvements, either. Those play a big role in your home’s value, but their algorithm

Home prices in Las Vegas hit rock bottom during the housing crash, but since 2011, home values throughout the area have more than doubled. According to a recent report from Zillow, the estimated median home value around Las Vegas is now at $246,700, which represents quite a jump compared to the fall of 2011 when home values fell to $115,700.

But even at its current level, home prices in Las Vegas still have a long way to go before reaching its peak of $304,800 in the spring of 2006.

As noted by Zillow, and also in a report from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, over half of the largest markets in the U.S. have rebounded entirely, while Las Vegas still falls about 19 percent short of the peak level mentioned above.

It’s also worth noting, however, that the Las

If you’re thinking about making the move from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, you’re definitely not alone. In fact, recent census figures revealed a pretty substantial increase in home buyers opting for Sin City over sunny Southern California thanks to cheaper home prices, plenty of outdoor recreation, a vibrant nightlife scene, and countless other factors that make living in the Las Vegas area increasingly more desirable. And just like Los Angeles, we’re also about to get a pro football team too, so take that, California!

As Las Vegas continues to better position itself as being a destination spot for home buyers of all ages, though, the hassle of actually making the move still exists for many soon-to-be buyers. But luckily for anyone who happens to fall into
