You only have one and that's to get an attorney involved ASAP. You should document all of the above as best you can and you could at a minimum have the utilities turned off. Do not under any circumstances get into it with your wife's daughter and boyfriend, rest assured nothing good will come of it. ... more

GREAT QUESTION! To get an answer to a question like this, I look at the numbers of buyers paying cash for homes in Las Vegas. Since March to today, the numbers of people paying cash (read investors) has dropped 64%!

Does that say "now is a good time"?

Yes and no! Yes, there are deals out there. No, they are not as plentiful as 6 months ago. Finding them is trickier.

Buy the home you like and want and forget about the cost per sq foot. The only thing that matters is the price of the home and the upgrades of the home - not the cost per sq foot. If you buy a large home, the cost per sq ft is lower than if you buy a small home. So, I would say shop for the home you love not the one with the least cost per sq foot because that would probably be a home with about 10,000 sf vs. the 3,000 sf home you are looking for. ... more

It doesn't sound like you understand our local market very much. You stated that many investors drive around. Not around here they don't. They find a local Realtor to help them with their ventures. You also stated that the good properties never hit the MLS. Another untrue statement. Most of the good properties hit the MLS.

When I explained that it is harder to show a home while it is being occupied, it is usually true for most buyers. There is only a small portion of buyers that are investors looking for tenant occupied homes. If the property was vacant, it would cater to everyone. Having a tenant in the property with a lease is a plus for investors, but I was pointing out that general buyers will not be interested AT ALL. I was saying this in case he decided to cater to everyone instead of just investors.
