Mike Kruse answered:
Summerlin and Centennial Hills both sit higher than the rest of the city. So those areas normally don't have flood issues. There are flood zones everywhere in Las Vegas. Check the grading of the home you are interested in to make sure water won't run into the home.

Taxes in NV are about 1%. $130,000 house is approximately $1300/year or about $100+/- per month. Insurance is anywhere from $30-$200 depending on what you choose to cover for interior belongings and replacement of the home it it were totally damaged. Gas (we cook and generate hot water and heating with gas in Vegas) is about $20 per month and about $60-$75 in the winter months (all these approximations are for a newer home built after 2000), electric will be $60 regularly-$250 in the summer. Water and sewer is about $50 regularly and in the summer about $150. I hope this helps. ... more

You should be able to get something called renters insurance for the interior contents. You don't have to be a renter or to rent it out that is just what it is called.

Yes Jesse , I know several good loan officers in Las Vegas . What type of Loan are you looking for? Not every lender is the right lender for the loan you are trying to get. It all depends on what you are trying to do . Your question is very vague and I would need more specifics .Are you looking to refinance or purchase a home ? Is it a primary residence or a second home or investment property ? Are you a first time homebuyer ? Are you coming in with money for a down payment ? I'm certain a lot of people can give you the name and number of their favorite lender and there are many of them just like there are many Realtors . But not everyone is the right fit for the job.So without knowing what you are trying to accomplish I would hesitate just randomly giving out ANY lender or Realtors information. ... more

Las Vegas has faced a water shortage every year for the past 20 years or more. Clark County and the Cities in Clark County have spent large amounts of money over the past 10 years building catchment basins and has an extensive water conservation program.

It is certainly feasible to but a home in Las Vegas as the prices are the lowest they have been in 10 years.

Paul May answered:
good question- I would have to speak with my loan officer to see if Harp 2.0 checks any of that.
Call Darren Lenneman- 702-493-1924 or email- for info on refinancing-
I guess the real question is- what are your prospects to get employed in the near future?
If you can't afford the home-
A short sale is the next step if the home is underwater-
Text, email or call me- if that is the case-

Two of my current favorites in that price range (where I have represented out of town investors in purchasing units) are: 9303 Gilcrease Av Las Vegas, and 8985 S Durango Dr Las Vegas. Investing in rental income properties in Las Vegas is my niche, and I have been a licensed agent in Las Vegas for six years. I have been a real estate investor myself since 1988.

Paul May answered:
It is a lot more complicated than that-

1- There is probably a mortgage on the home and in order for the home to be sold- the best course of action is if the sellers would agree to cooperate and conduct a short sale- then that would be your most appropriate solution-

2- Nevada does conduct Tax lien sales- where you purchase the tax lien and then wait for the mortgage holder to redeem and satisfy the lien- thus paying you a large percentage on top of the balance- If the bank did not redeem the tax lien- then at some point - and you would need to consult an attorney on this- my belief is at that point the mortgage can be severed from the home and you can own the home for purchasing the tax lien- but the fact of the matter is, the bank would make up the taxes and payoff the lien, before that situation were to happen-

3- If the sellers have not interest in the home and no interest in conducting the short sale, and you have a legitimate lease for a certain period of time, then if the bank were to foreclose, they would have to honor the lease and allow you to stay at the going market rents- At which point in many cases the bank will give you the tenant an opportunity to purchase the home at todays market value-

Contact me and I can help walk you thru any of these situations in more detail.
