We can get your home on Trulia. Inventory is low and demand is high, perfect time to sell. I am a Broker with Help-U-Sell in the San Francisco East Bay area. We sell homes for a flat fee. That includes all internet marketing, open houses, virtual tours, paperwork and bringing it to a successful close. My listings sell with multiple offers over asking. Please call me at 510-427-7992 so I can save you thousands of dollars in commission with full service and extensive marketing. No need to pay 5-6% commission. If your home is listed with an agent, this is not a solicitation. Please contact the local Help U Sell Office in your area.

Good Morning,

Here in Las Vegas, the credit application process typically takes about 2 business days. The property management companies can get the credit reports in fairly quickly. However, what usually hold it up is when they are waiting to hear back from your prior landlord.

If you have a good relationship with that person, you should give them a call and ask them to respond quickly for you. The rental market is hot in Vegas right now and you don't want to miss out on a property because they are waiting for a call back...

Have you considered buying a home ? I have helped many clients get into a 'New Home" with about the same or less amount of money then they would put down for rental property.
If this interests you,... just give me a call and I can help get you on the path to owning your own home ...!!!

I hope this helps,... Good Luck To You...!!!

As far as the best time of year to sell, selling in the prime season, which begins in spring and lasts through summer, is your best bet. See a good article here

NEVER give HALF on a home...Makes no financial sense. Here's why you should ALWAYS leverage the bank's money:

Better returns on cash. You will get better returns on cash if you get a mortgage. The average minimum required to put down is 30%. If you split your money into 3 properties, you will eek out about 50% more on your cash. Rents in Las Vegas support great returns and here are actual case studies showing cash verses loans.

You can hedge against a bad real estate agent. To get a loan, the property must be appraised by your lending institution. If your agent doesn’t do a good job finding you a property at or below market, you can cancel a typical deal as there is usually a contingency for the property to be appraised above the loan amount. Contact me if you want a list of pre-screened agents who won’t waste your time showing you houses above market.

Cash is not king. Many banks want the loans more than they want to unload the property. Even if you are the highest bidder with cash, a bank would rather take a lower offer if they can get the loan. Johnny Lunch bucket with a loan from Bank of America can cut you down if the property is owned by Bank of America. Smart agents will know which properties are owned by which banks. Investors go insane when they discover they lost an offer even though they were the highest bidder. Conversely, if you have a loan with a national lender, you can beat other cash offers.

Hard money loans are not the end of the world. Does anyone remember the days when mortgages were at 14%? Hard money loans are generally at 12% – stiff but not unreasonable. Even if you factor in a 12% loan, you will still get a better return on cash. This page has a list of Las Vegas hard money lenders.

Hello, Ms. Chen...

The more you understand a particular market, the more qualified you will be to make sound business decisions. Understanding current trends, including any changes in rents, mortgage rates and the unemployment rate, to name a few, enables good real estate investors to plan for the future.

Being familiar with specific markets allows investors to predict when trends are going to change, creating potentially beneficial opportunities for the prepared investor.

Robert Ernst answered:
Local Building Inspectors or AHJ are there to inspect code issues and life safety issues. They are often called out during construction or to properties where complaints are filed. Unless you had a permit for work or a complaint to address it would be difficult to get one to show up. With budget cuts here in Nevada it's hard to get an appointment even for when you have a permit.

The best thing to do is hire a good Home Inspector and them if something is found you can choose to call out a person that specializes in the trade the potential issue is found. If a Home Inspector finds something of concern there recommendation is a suggestion. If the AHJ finds something there recommendations are mandatory and usually would require a permit to be pulled and repairs performed by a licensed professional before signing off on it. If you want to contact me I can give you references to 3 of the best Inspectors in the Las Vegas area.

Ask the broker charging a flat fee when was the last house sold, what was the asking price, what was the sold price, how many houses have they sold in your neighborhood in the last 6 months.
In this enviornment, I am looking for the broker that actually closes deals, not how cheap the agent is

You could buy a $1,000,000 house if you have $250,000 down payment, but you will need to prove income to support the monthly payment...
If you are a little short of cash, it would really help to know exactly what kind of down payment you have avilable, and your verifyable income.

Hello Amys1323,

Please call me right away. You should consider short selling your home instead of allowing it to foreclose. I specialize in short sales and have been extremely successful in getting the banks to waive my sellers' deficiencies. If you foreclose, the banks have the rights to pursue you for the deficiency since Nevada is a deficiency state. At least if you short sale your home, you have a great chance of getting this waived, especially working with an agent like myself.

If we are successful in getting the deficiency waived on your home in the short sale, there should be no further rights for the bank to pursue you or your husband anyway, so it would all be a moot point. As far as your husband being affected by your debt if you foreclose, I can answer this for you if you call me. My corporate attorney is one of the top real estate attornies here in Las Vegas. He has actually created many documents that many agents in Las Vegas have adapted to their files now.

Hope to hear from you soon!
