At the right price every day is a good day to sell,however I've seen in my past experience (13 years) that around tax filling time the people seems to be more excited about buying a home.

Let me know if I can help you with any of your questions.

Fernando Melendez answered:
If you are still interested in purchasing your home, I would recommend contacting a couple of lenders and start asking questions,make sure they are familiar with the programs,there are so many out there and depending on your credit score they should be able to find you a program.

Some programs out the are specific for certain areas and you must purchase within a designated area of the city,there are programs for Henderson, North Las Vegas and Las Vegas.

Contact me if you have more questions.

The city of Henderson has a low crime rate,however every city has bad areas, I would strongly recommend to visit the Police department website for crime areas, as well as the school district website if you still have children that go to school, there is also a grading score for schools as well. ... more

Alysse Musgrave answered:
Interest rates and the cost of financing are based on the lender's risk. The higher the risk to the lender, the higher the cost to the borrower. A loan with your credit score would be very, very expensive. Get your score up to around 640 before you shop for a home. Anyone who tells you otherwise is not your friend.

Hello Maceo,

It would take quite a bit of typing to explain all aspects of a short sale to you.

Long story short...
Yes.... the lender will call the final shot right down to flat out refusing to do the short sale at all.
It can literally take months for this to happen and while you are waiting you may be missing a window of opportunity to put in offers on other homes some of which may not be short sales.

If you have a Realtor,... He/She should have explained the process to you before you put in any offers.

If you don't have a Realtor,... Give me a ring. I am very direct and concise with my answers. I believe in educating my clients as a first step in the home buying process..

Jennifer Harper answered:
This listing to sell has expired. Looks like it was listed a few times with very short-term listing agreements with an agent then expires.

If you contact me with your name & email address at NevadaHomesByJennifer@yahoo.com or contact online at LasVegasHomesByJennifer.com with the address and let me know you are looking for the listing history, I can email it to you.

The last listing went active 1/4/16 with a list price of $394,999 and expired unsold on 1/19/16 (this is an extremely unusually short term contract). It's been on and off the market many times too lengthy to type so to email you the history would be best.

An amazing cost effective solution may exist for the water shortage. Do what Saudi Arabia is currently doing !! Solar powered desalination of sea water!!!!!
I propose building a water pipeline from the Sea of Cortez between Mexico and Baja California......and
deliver the water to a large...or even huge desalination plant somewhere upstream of Lake Meade.
Since Lake Meade benefits not only Las Vegas but multiple other states....the cost of building this large desalination plant can be shared by those states !!!!!!!

Jacob Brown answered:
*This is an opinion and NOT financial advice*

If buying with cash, it really depends on your financial position. Cash allows you to have leverage.

Buying cash is not always the best option, even if you have to pay interest. Because if you are looking to invest, the return may out-pace the interest rate.

You will need to determine what the best option is for you. Also, what your end goal is.
