It’s not a secret that we’ve been battling a shortage of homes here in Southern Nevada for a number of years now and in typical “Sales 101” fashion the lack of supply has driven up home prices. With rental costs increasing and mortgage interest rates remaining near historic lows, more and more people are looking into buying a home. The problem that they’re finding is that the prices may have increased past their buying power.
A recent Las Vegas Review-Journal Article confirmed that from the beginning of 2017 to the end of 2017 the median house price has increased by 14% to $267,900. With the continued low inventory there does not seem to be an end in site.

Check out the latest video and as always, contact us to BUY or SELL in Southern Nevada!
Forwarding our clocks an hour, trees and plants blooming, the weather warming up… one of the best times of the year. It’s also a time when families start to think about a move in time for the next school year!
You can call it the “Spring Shuffle”…
“Which schools is this house zoned for?” is a constant question we get asked when helping our clients find a new home. For families with children this is a BIGGIE. As parents ourselves we shared that same concern when we house shopped, so we focused on buying in a specific area.
When it’s time to sell, having a home located in a desirable school zone can help make your listing stand out… in fact it often outshines a home’s features!
Thanks to the Clark County School District’s website (www.ccsd.net) you can lookup the school that a specific property is zoned for — from elementary all the way through to high school. Another fantastic website is www.greatschools.org where you’ll be able to see a particular school’s rating.
Of course having a local REALTOR® who is knowledgeable about the many areas of Southern Nevada helps too!
At this point during the summertime, our kids (like most) are counting down the days left before having to go back to school.
Parents on the other hand realize that there are only so many days left to get their children into that new school zone and they’re making that last push to find the right new Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, or Henderson home.
With a majority of homes closing escrow with an average period of 30 days there’s still time to make it happen! In fact most schools will allow registering for the rezoning while you’re in the purchase contract period to avoid your child from having to switch schools so early in the school year.
The first step in the relocation process is to work with REALTORS® that give you the best possible chance to find that perfect home and get the best possible deal while taking your timeline into consideration. That’s where Kandis and I are able to help!
We have a proven system in place that will ensure that your new home won’t be missed while making the change of environment as easy as possible for your family!
To help with the timeline we surround ourselves with a team of professionals that share our same work ethic and dedication for your success. These include loan officers, escrow officers, and home inspectors that will assist with the short timeframe.
