Appraisers everywhere use similar guidelines, Comparison, + differences = value. BUT, and this is the big but, they are a lot more conservative than they used to be.

Hello Whitedog,

I have been in the Real Estate business for nearly 32 years and have sold many a horse property. Vegas is not well known for having spectacular horse properties, but we do have some great set ups depending on your budget. If you will tell me your criteria; price, size of home, amount of land, outbuilding requirements, number of horses you intend to board, etc., I will be more than happy to put together a list of properties for you.

You can email me at:, or call me on my cell at: 702-491-4663.

Best of luck, and thanks for reading.

Your profile say's home seller, are you looking for a referral to a Listing Agent who is familiar with horse property?

My brother actually raises horses in San Diego county and I understand the specialty needed for this type of property. I have a large referral network and can refer one to you if you like. ... more

Suggestions: Get with a local agent, check with an attorney and your lender.

Some lenders now have a contract form that sellers and buyers of short sales must sign stating the seller will not be staying in the home, hence the need to check with the above.

Good Luck!

Hi Zz,

If your home is paid for you should look at the fact that you can sell without owing and buy a smaller home. Maybe a short sale or foreclosure on the buying end will be such a deal as to set off the "lost" value of your home. Maybe you can make it up on the buy side. Good Luck! and watch the sales. You may be able to get quite a deal. ... more

Suzanne MacDowell answered:
First of all, talk to a qualified mortgage person. I have heard that some companies, Wells Fargo in particular, are now lending to people right after a short sale if the circumstances are right and if the hardship can be explained adequately. Don't get your hopes up just yet, but it doesn't hurt to ask. Secondly, if you DO NOT qualify at this time, a mortgage professional will be able to tell you what you need to do to fix your credit and how long you will have to wait. My understanding is, it takes about two years, but ask, you never know, it may not be as long as you and I think! ... more

It does not seem that your question was finished, if you are a home owner, you should contact your bank diretcly, ask for the home retention department and ask them for a package, if they can email it or fax it is better than waiting a couple of weeks for them to mail it. ... more

Unfortunately none of us can answer with accuracy as to where the market will head tomorrow or down the road, as none of us really knows, but we all know order to determine if the offer received is a fair offer, review comps with your agent--recently sold similar properties in the immediate area, then go from there--do keep in mind that a home is worth what someone is willing to pay for it; it doesn’t matter what the seller needs or potential buyers can afford to spend; market conditions do matter as does the immediacy for a transaction to take place. ... more

Hello LV Home Owner,

Compared to many LV Home Owners today, this is actually not a huge difference. A short sale is definitely possible, but not necesarily your only option. Another option to consider is to rent out your home, if it covers your mortgage. If you'd like, you can contact me direct and I can assist you with an evaluation of the rental market, and discuss a short sale as well.

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

Home values have increased in many areas for nearly 5 months straight, if you need a Realtor in your area I know of a couple good ones as I used to live in Las Vegas. Contact me and give me your email address and contact information and I can have one of them contact you. You really need a detailed comparative home market analysis and they can prepare it for you and there is no charge.

Happy Holidays,

Hello Cainet,

That is a great question. In most cases, the contract belongs to the Broker of Record not the Agent. But some Brokers will allow the agent to take the contract with them to the new brokerage, depending on the terms of the seperation. However, as the client, you have a lot of merit in the decision. If you like the agent, then you can discuss going with them with the broker; on the flip side if you like the brokerage then you can discuss this with the parties involved. ... more

Isabel I have had listings where the lender would preapprove the short sale before we we placed the home for sale on the broker to broker exchange (MLS). I have also had listings where the lender did not want to talk to us about a short sale until after the property had been listed for 90 days. Contact your lender and find out their procedure. ... more

Leigh Ballard answered:
It sounds like she has the Short Sale paperwork started with the bank. The house somewhere along the way, became an investment property. If she can continue to prove hardship, even as an investor, she may
be able to close the Short Sale. Pre-Approvals are always shakey, since the final approval comes along
very close to closing.

Hello Justin,

If you need an appraisal performed by a "Fee Appraiser" typically at a cost of $400 to $500, you can simply Google "appraisers Las Vegas" and a big list will come up. If you want a "competitive market analysis" done which is free and is performed by a Real Estate agent, like me for instance, you can give me your address, and I will be more than happy to give you an opinion of value. We both use the same comparables when determining value. If I can help, please feel free to email me the address, or post it here.

Good Luck, and thanks for reading.
