Real Estate Agent - Keller Williams Realty Las Vegas & Carlsbad
 I speak to a lot of investors who want to enter the condo investment arena. They see the prices and rent equation and think "this is a no brainer." On the surface it makes perfect sense. Buy a condo in Las Vegas with 2 bedrooms, pay $50,000. Put down 20% ($10,000) and have a note for $40,000. T...
 Did I get your attention with that bold statement? Thought so. I figure, this is the first post of many so we might as well define what this blog is all about. Let's leave the confusion at the door. I think part of the problem we're facing right now is that most Americans have no idea what they...

Over the past 9 years I've ...

I've had some interesting conversations in the past couple of weeks about starting over. I've been a resident of Las Vegas since 1992 and have been in the real estate business since 2000. To say the least, it's been very difficult this past year. The temptation is to start over, but where... doin...
