First off, they must disclose any relationship between an agent and loan officer if they are one in the same. You can make a try to speak to the managing broker, who may have to go to the banking commission or state re commission. Check with another local and trusted loan officer for an estimate on your mortgage. For legal advice, check with a lawyer who can assist ... more

Probably not your agent's fault. There is VERY little inventory in the under $150K category. You are competing against cash buyers so if you are financed you need to rethink a new strategy (like waiving and coming in above appraised price with extra cash.) ... more

We do not have as many homes on the market as we did at the first of this year. Good homes are hard to find. If a good one comes on the market and its priced right it will go quickly so therefore lowball offers just do not work anymore and there will probably be up to 3-5 offers submitted. Sometimes it does offend the seller and they just reject the offer. Be very reasonable in your offers, and be totally ready to purchase with a pre-approval letter in hand or proof of funds that you have the cash. With fairly low inventories good properties will move quickly if priced right! Properties are moving upward in price! ... more

Hi, Kurtis.

Las Vegas Short Sales

Short Sales are probably the most dynamic component of the Las Vegas real estate market. First of all, there is nothing “short” about them and it’s a bit of mystery of how or why that term came about. There are real benefits to these types of distressed property sales. See the “benefits” link at the bottom of this page for more info.

What are they?

In summary, a short sale means that the bank is taking a loss on a mortgage to get rid of an asset. For example if Johnny owes $100k on a house and finds a buyer willing to purchase it for $70k, Johnny is asking the lender to take a $30k haircut. This is where you step in and can make money, if you do it right.

Here is a bit of information about short sales if you're still looking:

If the offer is below the loan value of the 1st loan, then the second will get nothing, and will certainly NOT agree.
The 2nd will want to get something, so the 1st has to calculate how much they have to give the 2nd before determining what they will accept.

P.a. Camp, You've received some good advice. My 2 cents worth is I wanted to say that the "Check what percentage the value is depricating on the market so you can lower your price according to that from the current market price" advice from Blaison Samuel is to the point and sensible..

Good luck, Dunes

If you are still in the home the lender or the new owner if bought at auction will have to evict you. State laws determine the process. I may be able to BUY YOUR PROPERTY even if you are near auction AND owe more than the property is worth. Contact me for details to see how my company could help you by PURCHASING YOUR PROPERTY BEFORE THE AUCTION & FORECLOSURE.

Best Wishes,
Will Robles
