Hello,

You should contact the North Las Vegas Policy Department for specifics on the crime rate in surrounding areas of Aliante. I can tell you that I am a resident of Aliante for over (10) years and have ventured out to all areas surrounding the city and have never had any problems.

I know the area very well and should you need assistance in finding a home, please feel free to give me a call.

Thank you.

FNMA offers both HomePath and HomePath Renovation Financing. Before shopping for a home, you'd pre-qualify with one of the approved lenders. It's a quick phone conversation with a loan officer. Call me and I'll put you in touch with one of the best. Anne 702-460-2193. ... more

I think this maybe a duplicate ?

It sounds like you may have rec'd a short sale approval letter that states that. If so, good it got approved.

This is typical language lenders put in the short sale approval letter. Yes, they can do it if you are agreeing to proceed with the sale, (I'm basing this thinking you have an approval letter).

But, typically they don't, not lately anyway in my closings of short sales. If an extension is needed the listing agent requests it and hopefully asks for no extra fees.

But, In the past over 2 years ago, I did have a lender that granted the extension, but did charge about $200 extra.

If Your lender is the reason it takes to long to close, make Your lender pay the fee if any.....just a suggestion

Hi Jenny,

This is something new being required as of January 1st. Note: if the seller does require this to be waived, and you don't want to waive it, you may likely have a purchase go bad... if it's a traditional purchase, and you request not to waive it, the seller may be willing to provide you with the requested evaluation... however, a bank owned home will likely require the waiver, as they have not occupied the home and are unaware of the energy consumption, and would not want to give out any false information.

Here is the Form for your review:

No contact, no obligation. Would walk form this home if there are major concerns or get price you are very commfortable with to consider purchasing. If say the house had termites or safety issues that the Town would pick up on, you would not be able to close the loan with most Banks anyway until corrected. Best of Luck ... more

Yes you have right to inspection even if the offer was made to an AS IS sale, you need to be allowed to discover what is wrong and usually have the first 10 days of the contract to do just that, inspect, make discovery and then decide if this house is worth your investment! Look at you contract and talk with you Realtor about this, you can decline to buy and have Escrow returned! But you contract is where you will find the outlines of this fact. Hopefully you read and signed a Realtor Contract! ... more

89084 is in the City of North Las Vegas, also known as North Las Vegas. For government offices, you'd call the City of North Las Vegas (versus Las Vegas).

If I understand your second question, I believe you're asking how long it will take home prices to increase in that area? If so, it really depends on the home itself and the surrounding competition, beyond the location. While there are many foreclosures in 89084 (I just sold a home there last week), the amenities that are offered there (oversized lots, RV parking, lenient CC&Rs) are coveted by so many prospective buyers that actual homes are limited, therefore raising prices.

I hope that's helpful, but if you need anything else answered, please feel free to write me directly at Mark@YouCanAffordVegas.com.
