Sales activity for the 4th quarter of 2007 in Clearwater Canyon, a neighborhood in Henderson, NV remained steady. Three homes closed in the period, matching the results from the 3rd quarter. Year-over-year sales were even, with 15 homes sold in both 2007 and 2006. The current resale inventory is 13 homes, plus two with accepted offers. Because of the wide variety of floor plans, that level only slightly favors buyers. Homes in Clearwater Canyon are close to all of the wonderful amenities that living in Green Valley provides, as well as I-215, I-515 and McCarran International Airport.

Having been in the business quite some time, the very few Las Vegas foreclosures that I used to deal with years ago were given to me from a lovely lady and compassionate foreclosure specialist working at the bank.  I had to help "encourage" the people who were essentially squatting in their own homes to leave amicably by negotiating with them & paying them a settlement on behalf of the bank in lieu of the bank's having to hire an attorney to do a formal eviction. I felt that I was more of a social worker, psychologist than a Las Vegas real estate agent, but this plan turned out to be a win win situation for everyone. The folks got a check usually equivalent to what the bank would have to pay to any lawyer they hired & the former homeowners were able to have funds to get a new start. Tho...

Yesterday, I had lunch with Fred Soskin, who is the sales manager at Crescent Ridge Condominiums in Henderson, NV.     I was there several months back with a client and the models were still under construction.    Fred invited me to lunch so that I could see the finished product and it is beautiful!  The clubhouse has a kitchen area, a billiard room, a very large state of the art fitness center and a spacious sitting area.  Plasma TV's are throughout the clubhouse.  The pool, with a waterfall, and hot tub are right out the back door.  There will also be a second pool in the community.   There were 2 models displayed, a 2 bedroom and a 3 bedroom.  All the floor plans are under $200,000 and are between 1123 and 1304 square feet. Many upgrades come standard including all appliances, granit...

The DaVinci Experience  is a traveling exhibit that features more than 60 working replicas of Leonardo DaVinci's inventions.  The three viewing galleries consist of transportation, military and mechanical.   Also included in the exhibit is reproductions of his paintings and original drawings.   The exhibit is located at the Events Plaza, outside City Hall in downtown Henderson and will be there through March 3, 2008.  The admission prices have just been reduced for Nevada residents to $8.50 for adults and $5.00 for students visiting with a school group.  Hours are from 9AM to 6PM daily.   This would be a great place to take the family to learn a bit of history!   If you are interested in relocating to Las Vegas or would like information on Las Vegas real estate, please contact me here

 While we saw an upward tick in Las Vegas New Construction units sold in October, we have a slight downward number of units sold in November.  There is barely any standing inventory to close. Building permits are up 99.8%.  This is good news because most major builders in town are pulling permits only when they have a contract from a buyer.With that being told, I am expecting units sold to rise from late winter to spring & summer.  While the resale market still remains pitiful, new construction is moving along.  REO (foreclosed homes) prices are inching downward to compete with this market.Las Vegas New Construction Units Sold:November 2007: 2643October 2007:  2752November 2006:  3006
