The prices of homes in Las Vegas are up at least 10 %, compare few months ago. Of course is depends of the area, but you need to think also selling your property. I do not have the addres, but if you are intersted I can provide you with complete analysis, after compare the prices in area, and also the rents.
Feel free to call me,
A couple of suggestions:
If you plan to rent the home out for a short period of time, you may not need to worry about re-financing. If the financing you have is based on you occupying the property (owner=occupied), and that status is going to change to an investment property, then it may be you will have to re-finance.
I suggest discussing your situation with a couple of Realtors. Compare their answers to your questions, including "what are my options?". what is market value, what rent income could I expect?
Also, I would discuss any major changes with my CPA. It sounds to me as though it would be good for you to know up front any impact this decision would have on your tax situation.
Email or post if you have more questions.
