Attention Home Buyers: Higher rates have lowered the amount of competing offers: lower demand gives you more leverage and better value!

Contact me so we have your loan approval in place.      Keep watching the MLS listings emailed to you.  Be ready to make offers while the rest of the buyers are waiting for the new year to get back in the market!!!!
Remember: It's not only economic market conditions setting prices but also Supply and DEMAND.  It only takes one other buyer to drive your bid up higher for a home.  Less buyers, gives you more leverage!

History of Las Vegas

It is a top three destination in the United States for business conventions and a global leader in the hospitality industry, claiming more AAA Five Diamond hotels than any other city in the world.

Are you pre-qualified or pre-approved for a loan?
Before you begin to shop for a new home, you should set up a time to go over the figures to determine how much the monthly payments will be. This will put you in a better position as a buyer. That’s when it is important to understand the distinction between being pre-qualified for a loan and pre-approved for a loan. The difference between the two terms will be crucial when you decide to make an offer on a house.

To get pre-qualified for a loan, we will collect information about your debt, income, and assets. We’ll look at your credit profile and assess goals for a down payment and get an idea of different loan programs that would work for you. I will issue you a pre-qualification letter indicating the amount you are pre-qualified to borrow.

It is important to understand that a pre-qualification letter is just an estimate of what you are eligible to borrow, not a commitment to lend. 


Getting pre-approved for a loan gives you competitive advantage when the time comes to bid on a home because you have been approved for a loan for a specified amount. 
To get pre-approved, you will complete a mortgage application and provide  various information verifying your employment, assets and financial status such as W-2 forms, bank records and credit card statements. We’ll review your mortgage options and submit your application to the lender that best meets your needs. Once the application process is complete you will receive a pre-approval letter indicating the amount your lender is willing to lend you for your home.


A pre-approval letter is not binding on the lender; it is subject to an appraisal of the home you wish to purchase and certain other conditions. If your financial situation changes (e.g. you lose your job), interest rates rise or a specified expiration date passes, your lender must review your situation and recalculate your mortgage amount accordingly.

Occupations by Neighborhood

Now it’s time to upgrade your living by choosing a neighborhood or community that better suits your lifestyle, preferences, and needs — especially if you have children who will be enrolling in the school system.

Better Schools

School districts are one of every family’s main considerations when choosing where to live. Often as children grow and reach school age, parents find that the funky neighborhood they chose as fun-loving newlyweds just don’t cut it in terms of education choices. Moving to a better school district is many parents’ way of saying ‘We love you’ to their kids.

Pros of Buying a Bigger House

The number one advantage of buying a larger home is the fact that you can grow into it. And chances are you’ll be growing if you’re in the market to buy a home.

Remember when you bought your home? It was just perfect for the two of you. But now—with a couple of kids, some ever-shedding pets, or maybe an in-law living down the hall—that's no longer the case. Whether you’re already bursting out of your house or about to expand your family, the time to move to a larger home might have arrived.

Are you ready to move to a larger home? Whether you’re expanding your family and in need of more bedrooms or simply want more room for a home office and guests, we completely understand that sometimes you just need more space.

For example, why do you want a bigger kitchen?   If you’re going to be hosting Thanksgiving moving forward, maybe that makes sense.

Is the idea to accommodate your traditional nuclear family, or do you need to make rooms for seniors and young adults coming back from college?  Is open concept right for you and your family? It sounds fabulous to watch the kids when they’re little, but you’ll get a lot of noise as they get older.

Upsizing now can mean a tidy profit later if you choose your home and location wisely.

Sure, you might think that once you've found the right size home, you'll stay forever. But you might find yourself downsizing a few years from now. As with any home purchase, look at your potential new place through the eyes of future buyers.

You’ll want your children to have room to roam the house, and new kids are definitely one of the most popular reasons to move to a new home

Whether you’re hoping for a larger yard or a roomier kitchen for all of your cooking projects, now you can afford to be a little more selective about your space and priorities in your home. Take some time to consider what you wish were different about your existing home, and make a list of priorities. What do you want to do with all your new space?

Your quality of life is suffering

The lack of a guest room means that when family visits, you’re stuck on the couch. Whatever it might be, if your quality of life has taken a nosedive because your house is too small, well, the answer is pretty clear.

Upgrading to a better home

Upgrading to a bigger, better, newer home is often a way of rewarding oneself for years of hard work and wise fiscal behavior. Once one is finally able to afford it, they move into the home they had been fantasizing about and start living the dream. 

Downsizing your home

Should you be buying or selling first

At some point it’s time it makes sense to downsize a home.

How you can smartly use your built up equity as a larger down payment to your new home.  Watch that equity grow in larger.

Less people means less stuff, less demand for bathroom space.
