Normally it depends on the community or owner you are renting from. Some charge a higher monthly rent for month-to-month rentals. Some require a higher deposit. Just depends.

I'd pick out a few places of interest and then ask around. ... more

Hello Marquisha,
Depending upon where you want to live and the cost for the owner to purchase, profit and to maintain the property determines the rental rate. The typical landlord will charge what the market will bear. The owner must make their payment as well as provide a fund for repairs. This cost of a unit is directly attributed to the cost of the property.
The typical starting rate is 1% of the purchase price for a month's rent. A $100K property will fetch $1K per month. Since this is a rule of thumb, and not everyone has thumbs, the rate is adjusted by area, cost of maintenance, greed, and profit.
I have 1 bedrooms near UNLV renting for $550 a month. A few blocks away, they are $500 per month. On the strip, the same size property may rent for $1000 a month. The similar unit in the north may rent for $400 a month or $700 a month depending the area.
As the demand increases or decreases for a certain unit, the rents will move accordingly. More demand, means higher pricing.

I suggest you hook up with a Realtor that can locate a bargain in the area that you want to live.The bottom line is that you need to be happy where you want to live at a price that you are comfortable with.

I hope that helps.

Good day Gary,
There are no good management companies. I would never recommend one. Look in the phone book and check them out. I cannot tell you how many times my clients have been burnt by great management companies.

That be said. None will care for the property as you would. All of them eat into your bottom line. All have fees that you did not expect both start up and exit costs.

Look for the total cost to enter their services. Some charge a monthly fee. Some only on the gross incoming rent. Some have no start up fee but keep the 1st month's rent. Typically, the monthly cost will be 15% to 4% of the gross rent after the 1st month. The more the fee, does not mean the better the service.

Look at the total exit fee. Some keep the last month's rent if you choose to exit the company even if the contract is up.

Many add a "fee" to the repair costs to add to their bottom line instead of passing the bill for repair direct to you. Many will not show you the original bill and charge you what they can get from the owner for a repair or cleanup.

Get all contracts in writing and do not deviate from the terms.
Good luck locating a management company. I wish you well.

Please contact me immediately if you know a person that cannot make their mortgage payments. I will work with them to avoid foreclosure or bankruptcy at no charge or fees to them.

Lots of factors play into this situation. What kind of property are you looking to invest into. A condo? Single family residence? It all makes a difference. How much return are you looking for? There are several places throughout the valley that are excellent.

If you're looking for a single family home then you'll want to make sure that you are semi near a school. Not directly next to it but near. Families like to be able to walk their children to school. If you're looking for a condo to purchase beware that there will be associaton fees and some can be very pricey which will be taking away from your profit.

You can purchase a condo in a great area for around $35,000. Just remember that everyone else is looking for a great deal like that and it may take you a while before you get an offer accepted. And almost all offers will be CASH so be prepared for your competitors.

Best of luck to you.

Evans Small answered:
These are smaller homes on smaller lots. Most recent MLS rentals in the $950-1045 range. There are 7 homes currently for rent in this neighborhood on MLS, a couple have been listed from 4 months. Recently rented homes in the neighborhood have moved quickly, so condition of home seems to matter a lot.
Advantages - nice community pool, easy access to 215. Disadvantages - $80/mo HOA comes out of landlord's pocket and community is a bit of a ways from the Strip jobs.

Hello Tbolt,

There are several laws concerning the eviction process, guidelines, etc. It would be best to consult with a real estate lawyer, or contact the city or county government office for more concise and dependable information.

Hi McKym,

Las Vegas has been reported by US News and World report as being undervalued by 41%. There is currently a Trump tower studio unit for sale for 150k. The owner paid over 600k for it. I doubt you will find better opportunites than here in Las Vegas. Also, we are economically positioned to be the first market to recover from the Real Estate crisis. Not all authorities agree on everything, but they all agree on this one.
I am an experienced buyers agent. I work with out of state buyers all the time, feel free to contact me for more market statistics. We have a Market Intelligence dept. and my statistics will surely impress you!

Good luck, Diane 702.401.0307
