Hello Lme,

Some top Analysts suggest that 2021 is the year when water will stop pumping, saying "While Hoover is an important source of clean, cheap energy, utilities would be able to replace the power if the generating facility was unable to operate, he said."

Here's a great article:

Another consideration; we cannot predict the weather as great as the mass population believes, and therefore, we can't really say if there will be some terrible drought for the next 10 years, just because we're in a drought today. I believe many recent natural occurences has reminded us of this.

How about building som more efficient sources of energy, like a plant that turns salt water from the ocean to pure H2O.... that'd be everlasting for generations. However, "along with recycled water this is one of the only non-rainfall dependent water sources. "

Hello Renter... I'm not really sure what your question is. Myra gives a great answer to the expected expense of utilities... which, it all depends on you.

Here are the utilities in Las Vegas:

Since this was posted in 89113 I will answer for 89113. It is mostly Nevada Trails (but not all)! Below I have linked up community information and listings for the area.

Google maps is a great tool. I punched in your zip code and then got directions to Las Vegas Airport. Depending on where you are in 89117 about 16 miles or 23 minutes. I'll attach the link I have to the map for your convenience. ... more

Police departments, websites of the town you intend to move to, and driving through the neighborhoods you intend to consider, are your best way to get your questions answered.... these days you can find pretty much all information via the internet... As Realtors we cannot suggest or promote areas, as it is against the law.....
But if and when you start working with an area Realtor, that Realtor would be able to guide you to the various websites that will answer all your questions and concerns.

Good luck to you!

He probably did it because it is easier for him to qualify for the loan and or estate planning.

This is a classic investor scenario.

Dear Taza,
I would try in or near zip code 89120. This is a great neighborhood for that price ragne. 89120 borders henderson, specifically look south of Tropicana, between Sandhill and Eastern. The elementary school here is one of the best, and the highschool has a high graduation rate. This area offers neighborhoods with tri level homes or neighborhoods where the homes are spread out from each other. I recently searched for a home here for another client, so I am very familiar with the area and pricing.

As for crime, I personally rely on the clark county metro wesite figures. They have a great map so you can see every crime in the last 7 days, 30 days or 60 days. Pay close attention to what those crimes are, you will have the option to search for violent crimes, theft or domestic arguments, or all crime in an area

Call me if you would like some more detail information or if you would like me to email you so homes to look at.

I just moved to Henderson (adjacent to Las Vegas) and I love it! I have a beautiful view of the strip, there is always a nice breeze, people are so friendly and best of all it's a HAPPENING town! Locals get a lot of discounts on shows etc. and although I don't go the the strip often, it's fun to mix it up with the people there who come from all over the world to have fun. The neighborhoods are nice, and very family oriented with neighbors helping neighbors. The options here are amazing. I moved here from So.Cal. and I am so glad I did!!!

Funny; I am getting close to issuing a buy signal on the west side of 395 between Mt. Rose Hwy. and 80 west. My model is signaling a weak buy but at least a buy. I tweeted this subject just last week; Remember, I issued a sell or hold for long term investment back in 2004: so this will be a long time coming if I do (issue a buy). It will be released via, Trulia, Active Rain Gannet, Twitter, Facebook, 7 blogs and A.P. wire when I do it so you will see it for sure.
In any event, don't wait much longer; waiting for a hypothetical additional correction could be a wash if these prehistoric interest rates go back up. Don't expect an overnight profit but the pickings although slim are good.

I actually use the west side of 395 in radio and media interviews as a light at the end of the tunnel for the biggest little foreclosure city in the world LOL.

This is an area that didn't get overbuilt and bought with 100% financing like the burbs did. Frankly; a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Marcella Syme answered:
Hi Kelli; The best way would be to contact your Realtor and ask them if they know of any. There are some homes for sell in the Elko area that the owner may be willing to do an owner carry or a lease option for 12 months, or 6 months, depending on your reason for having the owner carry. They will want to have a credit check and a down payment. If you have any other questions, please let me know. ... more

Hello Joanna,

I agree with Alma. You can search for live listings on, and it is highly suggested to find a Realtor to represent you.

Working with a Realtor provides you with an experienced agent who can conduct live searches with automatic notifications, fair market analysis, and hopefully a person who is great with conducting a full transaction including disclosing to you all known facts, conducting walk throughs, and doing the due diligence.

Trying to go straight to the source, and not having an agent representing you can lead to one sided transactions, as the Seller's agent is looking out for the Seller's interests first. I'm not saying deals can't go just great like this, but it definitely gives you an advantage to having a representative; plus, the seller often pays for any agent costs, so don't let the cost of having an agent stop you..

I can help with any of your Las Vegas Real Estate needs or questions; feel free to contact me direct.
