I am in the beginning stages of applying for a mortgage on my own. Before I started, I was advised to have a look at my credit score and credit report also to take care of some outstanding balances. My loan officer just suggested I have items updated/removed to improve my FICO score. He gave me the contact of: (pyramideye.hack and in 2 days he fixed my credit score to 784.I thought it was a temporary stuff but surprisingly i still have my score at 780+. I will STRONGLY recommend for all credit score upgrade, bank hacks, social media hack, phone hack etc. He is the best out there, totally legit and cheap too. ... more

When I bought my last home I hired a home inspector who was also a master plumber. He inspected my house and said there were very few problems. Fast forward 5 years when I'm about to sell my house. The buyers hired an inspector who informed me within 20 minutes that my domestic plumbing and radiant heat system were both piped with Kitec. The buyers backed out and I was stuck with having to fix the problem. Don't trust anyone ... more

I live in 89141.

2000 SqFt home
3 people
I have a pool and grass out front.

Water bill is usually around 20/month in the winter and around 80/month in the summer.

Gas is never very high. Usually 15-25/month depending on how much BBQing we do.

The energy bill is one that varies tons. My energy bill ranges from 40/month in the winter to 350-550/month in the summer.

Depends on a ton of stuff.

If you call NV Energy and give them an address of a house- any house- they will give you the average monthly utility bill. (free!)

Hope this helps!

I live in a small 2 bedroom apartment in Central Las Vegas. Me and my roommate rarely use any water. We take one shower each every day, do one load of laundry every 2 weeks, and run the dishwasher about once per week. This month our water bill was almost $70, which seems extremely large. We have no sprinklers outside, and no plants or landscape to water. Does this sound like something is wrong? ... more

One of the biggest differences is when it falls to business licensing. Depending on if you fall within city limits or not will depend on who, where and how much it cost to hang your business license. The differences are so nominal it isn't worth worrying about.

With regards to business permitting it tends to make a little more of a difference. The fire department issues approvals for certain business types and does not allow other business types dependent on if the business is either in the incorporated or the unincorporated. This is a major sticking point and you can literally buy a piece of property and not be able to open your business because of where it is.

I hope this helps. If you need any further assistance let me know.

Your real estate agent should be able to tell you what the property is zoned for. If not, call the city and they surely will. Like previously mentioned, you might be able to get a property approved if it meets the criteria for livestock. Good luck! ... more

The disposal fees will cost you more than the cost to demolish it.

I purchased a mobile home park not long ago for a client. We removed three homes from the property.

Cost of two large dumpsters $900.00
Labor to demolish $1,500.00

I hope this helps.

Kelly Adams answered:
I live very close to the quarry and have for over a year in the Pleasantview Subdivision. You can, occasionally, hear some tractors and trucks in the mornings but its not overpowering or disruptive to us at all. It's never woken us up. I have not noticed any dust coming from that direction either and its seems to quiet down by 9-10am on a typical day. I love living in the Chambers Field Area and would not let the quarry deter you. You might even stop by the area you are thinking of living and just sit with the windows rolled down and listen at different times of the day. Also a good idea to do to check how much traffic goes by at different times of the day.
Would love to help you find a home...

droidworthy answered:
I have lived here over a year now and the idea of "extreme" wind is way over rated. Rarely do the winds sustain at 15 mph and perhaps twice a year gust above 30. I played golf in 20 mph sustained gusting to 30 one day. that is windy for golf but indicates that you can easily move about in the highest winds up here.
I understand it is more windy on the west side of Washoe Valley but I have no evidence of that myself. They do restrict vans, busses and large trucks on the north south arteries of 395 and 580 at times but I would estimate that this occurs less than 10 times a year.
I was considering a windmill for electrical generation but I just don't think the wind justifies it. If the winds are high they are high for only 18 hours or so and then subside for weeks. Like anything else to do with weather it is cyclical but tho even I was warned about it before I moved here I consider it a non factor and rarely will even prohibit you working in your yard.
