I've personally used Sprint & Clear for mobile broadband service. I think Sprint offers faster speeds, but I have 50meg service through Cox for my home office and there's no comparison to any of the broadband providers. I had DSL for years, but after converting to cable internet I would never go back to anything else. They have a fiber optic service through Century Link but it's only available in certain areas. I would suggest Cox for home internet service and possibly Sprint or Clear for mobile broadband. Keep in mind that there are a number of Hotspots available all over town too (Startbucks, Wholefoods, Barnes & Noble, McDonalds, etc), so you may not need a mobile broadband service if you utilize the free Hotspots when you're on the go. ... more

Hello Karen, it would take quite a while to list all of the HOA's in Las Vegas. Summerlin has a website which you can click on links to the North, South, and West HOA's. If you have specific areas that you are curious about I would be happy to provide you with more information.

Hello Kem. I attended one of their auction a few months ago because I wanted to get a first hand impression and I was curious whether these auctions were a place where buyers could get a good deal. I sat open houses for one of the properties that were auctioned off that day and I knew what the home looked like and how much it should have sold for. I also brought my laptop with me and searched the MLS for sold comps for other properties that were auctioned off that day because I wanted to know how competitive the sold prices were compared to the MLS inventory. I can tell you that based on my experience and research that day, the auction was not the way to go if you want to get a real deal. The house that I sat open sold for $155,000 plust 5% buyer premium. There was a comparable MLS listing (same floorplan and square footage in same neighborhood) that was listed for $119,000. The property that sold for $155,000 at auction had been vandalized and needed a lot of repair work. I know this does not answer your questions as to how you can find out how much a house sold for at auction, but I thought I share my experience with you since I attended one of their auctions recently.

If you just want to know what the most recent sale price was for a property, you can just look it up in the public records. If you have a real estate agent friend, your friend can also easily access that information as most real estate agents have online access to this kind of info. I hope this helps.

The gravity on Jupiter is approximately 318 times that of Earth. (I looked it up).

I would think that would make any vertibrate, or non vertibrate much shorter than they would be on the planet earth.

Contact the local tax assessor's office. That information is public record and should be available there if you have the parcel number and/or address.

HI Susie,
I wasn't sure if you were looking for additional info about VA's or were already a practicing VA. Check out this thread for additional info:

Also, google Alan Hainge, Cyber Real Estate and REVA and find quite a bit.

If you have a good working knowledge of graphic arts, you may not need the certification of REVA or IREAA to secure work.

Feel free to contact me directly, or post additional questions here.
