Home Buying Budget
Working out your home-buying budget before you begin shopping for your new home is essential. After all, nobody wants to waste time touring homes for sale in Las Vegas only to discover they cannot afford to buy their dream home. So what goes into working out an accurate home-buying budget? Budgeting for the down payment is the big-ticket expense home buyers tend to think of first, but there are other out-of-pocket expenses you're likely to face during the home-buying process. Our REALTORS® have created this list of some of the additional fees you should include in your home-buying budget:

  1. Inspection Fees
    When you find the house that you want to be your new home, you will need to schedule at least one professional inspection to ensure that you have a reliable assessment of its condition. This is done after you have made an offer on a home and that offer has been accepted by the seller and is an essential step in protecting your interests. It is also often required by lenders to protect their interests. A general inspection of the home is the first step. If potential problems are found, other inspections may be necessary, such as a once-over from a termite specialist, for instance, or a perhaps sewer inspection. Depending upon your particular circumstances, you may spend anywhere from a few hundred to a thousand dollars or more on inspections.

Las Vegas Homes for Sale
Conventional wisdom says that spring and summer are the best times to list a home for sale. The warmer months are the peak of the real estate season, but there's a downside – the market is crowded with other homes, and it's hard to get noticed. In fall, it's a different story. 

There are a lot of benefits to listing your Las Vegas home for sale in the fall, so don't miss out on the opportunity to take advantage of this underrated season! Here's why the coming months offer the perfect opportunity to sell your home:

  1. Fall Means Less Competition
    Compared to the crowded market of summer, fall is relatively wide open, which means your house is more likely to get noticed. Less competition can pay off big time, and with fewer listings on the market, it's much more likely that yours will get the attention it deserves.

The Hoover Dam: One of the Top 10 Construction Achievements of the 20th Century

The History of the Hoover Dam

The Hoover Dam was one of the most massive public works projects ever undertaken in the United States, with construction beginning in 1931. By 1936 the dam was completed, with FDR himself commemorating the dam's opening. There is enough concrete in the Hoover Dam to build a road stretching across the entire US, and construction was such a big deal culturally that spectators came out to watch the high-flying antics of some construction crews. The Hoover Dam was the tallest dam in the world when construction was completed and still stands as one of the most impressive, impactful construction projects of the 20th century.
