While I don't think I have any clients that are looking to sell their property on a rent to own basis currently I do run into the situation from time to time.

I just want to clarify your question. According to your email you want to pay $90.00 per month or less. Is this a typo? Did you mean to put $900? ... more

Jeff, You are looking at the two most popular areas that prospective buyers always compare. They usually base it on job location, family, friends, travel times, etc. Personal for each client. Both are great areas and will always be popular based on various reasons, so the demand is contingent on these.
Are you relocating for a particular reason that would predicate one area over the other? Be glad to send you more information, just email me at so you can compare yourself.

Your thoughts on what to purchase are fine. The problem is that we hardly have any more properties in that price range. It is so difficult to get properties that some of the properties in this pricerange get 35-40 offers. ... more

As a real estate agent, I would refer my clients with this question to their CPA or tax preparer. I can tell you that if you closed in 2011, that is well within the IRS Debt Relief Act of 2007, which in a nutshell says that you will not be taxed on the deficiency.
Best of luck to you. If you like, I can send you some documentation that we deliver to our Short Sale clients that does discuss this. The docs are prepared by a lawyer and a CPA. Let me know by sending me an email to

Trulia Las Vegas,

This is such a great question!

In my experience there isn't a minimum credit score to rent an apartment, condo or single family home. I believe that most Property Management firms/Landlords factor in each individual circumstance when making a final decision. However, as one might imagine, the better the credit score, references and job history the easier it may be to beat out other tenants applying for the same property. There are also factors such as pets, smoking/non-smoking to consider. If you feel you may have past or current circumstances working against you, you may considering offering an increased security deposit, pre-paid rents, and rental references.

I would recommend any tenant be upfront when dealing with property management companies or your real estate agent. The more information known about your circumstance the better equipped we will be to find you that "right" home avoiding unnecessary NON-REFUNDABLE application fees.

Finding a rental in any city can be costly, be sure to ask the right questions and move fast!

Hi Anthony,

The best way to answer this question is with a question. What is the Best Investment For YOU !
The only way to answer this is to work with a qualified full time agent who works with investors.

Selecting an investment property takes time and knowledge. Working with an agent who knows the valley and understands the needs of the investor is the first step to making the best possible property Investment. One of the questions you should be able to answer is what kind of ROI do you desire .
Return on Investment .
How long to you plan on keeping the investment.
Are you willing to put some money into the investment property to get top dollar and if so how much.

These are just a few questions that need to be answered prior to determining which location is best for an investment there are many factors to consider.
Terms of the agreement
Is this a cash purchase
Convential loan purchase.

Anthony a qualified agent can guide you in the process of making a wise decision on any purchase in las vegas

Good Luck with your quest

To see if you qualify for a mortgage, contact a local lender.

To purchase for cash, I'm sure you can do that, as you don' t have to qualify for a mortgage.

Feel free to call me to further discuss.

Any PERSONAL items left in a house, when it is sold, become the property of the new owners.
This could include a car, in the extreme.
I have seen Tractors and other farm equipment, Hot Tubs, pool equipment, furniture, clothes, lamps, pots & pans, dishes..... you name it.

What you should do is knock on the door and be real sweet.

Hi Joyce,
According to all the information I have been able to glean, home prices in the whole area have increased quite bit since this time last year. Some areas have increased more than others and I would have to know which part of South Valley Ranch you are interested in to give you a clearer picture. Our inventory is very low and it is expected to stay low, which will, by necessity continue to increase prices. I live and work in the area you are interested in and if I can be of any further assistance, please contact me at either (702) 321-0131 or email me directly at

I hope the above information helps you.

Hi Edna,
As long as you have a solid job with an income of at least 3 times the monthly rent and you can get a good reference from your current apartment, you should be fine with a 599 credit score. With a little attention, you should be able to work your credit score up a bit by next summer :) ... more
