Boulder City Damboree

Featuring a pancake breakfast, a parade, a legendary water fight, games, booths and concession stands and of course fireworks the Boulder City Damboree Celebration remains one of the best ways to celebrate Independence Day in the Las Vegas Valley.

Each year on the 4th of July the Las Vegas “suburb” of Boulder City hosts the Boulder City Damboree Celebration. This year commemorates its 64th year with the catchphrase “Preserving Our Past to Educate the Future”.  Built in the 1930′s to house and entertain the men building the Hoover Dam, Boulder City remains a quaint slice of Americana that is often difficult to find in modern, activity driven, and neon illuminated Las Vegas.
The parade starts after the free pancake breakfast at 9 AM and features a water battle on one of the float.
The riders and parade bystanders battle with squirt guns, water balloons, and lots of screaming.
Start with free pancakes (yum) at the crack of dawn.  The real fun begins with the parade at 9:00 AM. Famous for the water battle section of the parade, where float riders and bystanders battle with squirt guns and water balloons, this parade is more fun and cooling than most. Just make sure to know the rules. Check them out on the Boulder City Official website www.bcnv.org.

NORTH END of THE STRIP MAY BE IN THE MIDDLE OF A ROBUST RECOVERY BY 2014!

Las Vegas North End may be in the middle of a robust recovery by 2014. What lies ahead for the famous North End of the Strip? The Sahara closed one year ago May 16th. It was one of last large resorts on the North portion of the Strip before the Downtown area begins.

home searchof Los Angeles and a private equity group are funding $300,000,000 for the rebirth of the old and torn Sahara built in 1952 at a cost of $5 Million.

THE HOUSING MARKET CRASH IN LAS VEGAS – WHO’S TO FAULT, HOMEOWNERS?

Housing Market Crash- Not our FaultHousing Market Crash

Homeowners Are Not At Fault That The Las Vegas Housing Market Crashed.
When the mortgage bubble exploded, Nevada was ground zero. There is no reason to pay off $350,000 in debt when the house you bought is now worth $160,000. It makes more sense for many to get out from under the mortgage burden and start fresh. Many people refuse to recognize a mistake, and then they compound the mistake by spending their entire life savings, 401(k)’s, retirement savings, and even borrow money from family to avoid accepting the reality of the situation. A House Is Not A Home! A “House” is simply drywall, stucco, carpet, wood and paint. A “HOME” represents treasured memories, personal belongings and the special people in your life. A “House” can be replaced. A “HOME” is PRICELESS!

Until you have equity in your house, all you are doing is renting. You are renting from the bank! Even with a loan modification, homeowners will still have no equity in their homes for a decade or more. Unless you have equity in your home, you are better off selling your home through a short sale and buying another home down the road (at a cost of 50% of what you paid before). The only difference between renting vs. making mortgage payments on a home with no equity is that if the roof leaks or the air conditioner goes out in the rental, your landlord pays for it. If anything goes wrong in the house you and the bank own; YOU are paying the repairs, maintenance Continue reading

A BUYER’S GUIDE TO BUYING BANK-OWNED OR FORECLOSURE PROPERTY

A BUYER’S GUIDE TO BUYING BANK-OWNED OR FORECLOSURE PROPERTY
In today’s market, nearly four out of every five homes sold are bank-owned foreclosure properties.  These are commonly referred to as Real Estate Owned (REO) properties 
 

Buying an REO is a great way to save money and get a fantastic deal. It is just a very different process than a traditional buyer/seller transaction. 

What is an REO or bank-owned property? 

An REO is a property that the bank or financial institution owns because they foreclosed on it. The last owner of this home was not able to make the mortgage payments and the mortgage note holder seized the property and evicted the owner. The bank attempted to auction the property and pay off the existing liens and mortgages. If that was not successful, Continue reading

What is a Short Sale?

A “Short Sale” (also referred to as: “Negotiated Settlement” or “Short Pay Off”) occurs when a Lender agrees to accept less than the amount owed on the original note or total payoff, as an alternative to foreclosure. If the property is worth less than the amount owed on the loan, then even if the Lender forecloses and takes back the property, they know they are going to take a loss. We can often convince a Lender that they will “do better” if they take less than what is owed now, rather than taking the property back by foreclosure.

Foreclosures can be avoided and short sales can create better futures.

Michelle recently asked: What is involved in doing a Short sale?

Going over your specific situation and fully explain the short sale process.
Provide you with the necessary forms to process the short sale.
Always available to answer your questions during the entire process.
Great marketing to attract buyers and quickly sell your home .
Working directly with the lender to negotiate the short sale.
Working to delay foreclosure and possibly keep you in the home longer.
Working to get your deficiency forgiven by the lender.
Lender will also pay the fees related to the Real Estate Transaction.

And the Great News is that there are lenders that Continue reading

A few foreclosure scams to avoid!

Though the number of foreclosures on the market may be momentarily dwindling, opportunists continue to run scams that prey on vulnerable homeowners. If you are no longer able to pay your mortgage, read the below tips to ensure you don’t rely on the wrong people to help you during this difficult time.

A common mortgage scam is the “phantom help” scam. Under this proceeding, a company will ask a homeowner to pay a fee and, in return, have their mortgage payments reduced, or will promise to prevent a foreclosure altogether. After making payments, the company will disappear with your money, putting you even further behind on your mortgage payments.

Meanwhile, a rent-to-buy scam involves signing Continue reading

Steps To Consider Before You Strategically Default In Las Vegas!

If you are thinking about a strategic default, then you must be aware of this. FICO claims to be able to notify a lender when someone has strategically defaulted, or looks ready to strategically default.

This helps lenders implement additional collection procedures to get you to repay their loss. I spoke with an expert in the industry. I wanted to know how he thinks they find the strategic defaulters.

“I think the biggest thing they look for is someone who is paying everything on time. This person has never been late on anything. All of a sudden they just stop paying their mortgage.

There were no other signs of financial problems. That looks pretty fishy to a lender. They probably get angry when they see they still paying their credit cards. The banks think that they are more important than a credit card”, this expert told us.

“You have to think like a banker to Continue reading
