Help the community by answering this question:



I think you need to actually read the Responses from your fellow Realtors. Most if not all gave the advice to be very cautious. Even to the point of saying the flipping market was played out months ago. Next time read before you slam other Realtors. At least they post their name and numbers.

Goodluck . You are obviously inexperienced at this or you would know where to go to get this info . Las Vegas market is tapped out . Investors have moved on . I wppuld be very careful and do your homework before making any type of investment . Everyone is so eager to help you because they know you don't know what you're doing . Best of luck . I would seriously advise you to do some research about the market , interview some Realtors who will assist you with your needs and not take advantage of your lack of knowledge .

Eze. I didn't mean to appear short but just honest. I would love to sell you ever home in town. The fact of the matter is this regardless of what you get told. At one time every Realtor in town had access to over 3BILLON in hedge fund monies for flipping. Every educated flipper left the market 2 months ago. These hedge funds has 20 people plus teams working 7 days a week. Are there still some values in the market? Yes, but these are few and far between. I would suggest you contact 1 Realtor to sit down and make a strategy to identify market shifts.

I myself am one of the few Certified Own America Certified Realtors in Las Vegas.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

welcome to vegas-

I looked thru all these responses and the funny thing is that no one gave you the auction website- This is it- it is not mine- it is the main site that has the information posted each day.

that is the site to use to see all of the properties that come up each day for auction-

there is a subscription fee-

you can also receive a free list from the title company that I use on a regular basis

and please check out the link below-

If you know any buy and hold investors looking for a great return- or you are going to conduct a mixture of buy and hold and flips- then please check out my site below-

There are at least 5 or 6 websites that do auctions. Just google auction companies and you will find them. Most of the flippers are not making any money at flipping any more. Las Vegas' prices have gone up. With the rise in prices, it isn't the best city for flipping any more. In order to be successful at flipping, you need to be able to buy cheaply and sell for a higher price. Most neighborhoods would not be able to stand a higher price than the market. You don't get many bargains on an auction website.

I have to agree with Andrew, the better properties don't make it through the auction process in Las Vegas. Most are sold long before that in our current market, though, like everything, that is always subject to change with the economic environment.

If you are serious about flipping in Vegas, you will need to gather a staff that can research the properties that are going up on the courthouse steps at foreclosure. (No title insurance, so you need the staff to research the HOA liens and other underlying liens. Nevada is a super lien state, and the HOA usually have liens on these properties.)

There are about six big players that go every day to the courthouse, and most of the time they are bidding against each other for the one or two properties that are not upside down.

Other than that, your best bet is to hook up with an experienced investor agent and get automated listings sent to you immediately when they go on the market. You should also make a plan with your agent to target specific neighborhoods and send out mailers. I would target neighborhoods that have had a lot of short sales where prices are still depressed relative to the other neighborhoods that have recovered already. You can still get some great bargains on those if you are aggressive AND patient with the process.

You should absolutely get familiar with the market before making any purchases. Here is a web site that is updated daily, and you can set yourself up to get alerts on new properties.

We would happy to answer any questions you might have about the local market and get you in touch with some local contractors that could do work for you on rehabs. If you are going to be doing any volume, we have some top notch agents that specialize in investor properties that can help get you organized.

Hope this helps!
