Beautiful rain and mild temps-we are blessed
Today is the first of August, it is hard to believe that the summer has flown by so quickly. It has been years since I have seen the pastures look so green and the creeks, which for the most part are seasonal, are flowing and sending that water to the great State of Texas. Many homes and businesses have leaks they have not know about until now. Even so, I have not anyone complain about the rains we have received. Many of the rains have been precipitated by "back door" cool fronts, which of course, keep our temperatures on the cool side. Our weather is probably our best kept secret. With our weather blessing us, we have also been blessed with a resurgence of interest in the historical aspects of Las Vegas. The sale of the Castenada coupled with the sale of the historic Plaza and Ilfeld building has caused many to have hope in a revival of our historic past. It would be nice if that were the case. If you are thinking about purchasing a house, come by our offices and let one of our sales people help you with a VA loan, a FHA loan, or other traditional methods of obtaining a loan. It is rumored that loan rates which have been low since 2008 will begin to edge upward. We can help protect you in the process of purchasing a home or business. Homes are still slightly declining in value, so if you are a Buyer now is the time to flex your economic muscle. If you are a Seller, patience is the by word. The days on the market is still extended, and is more than 2\3 of a year. If you are a seller your property must be priced right or else I assure you, it will languish. According to our Las Vegas MLS we have 417 active listings, since January we have sold 47 properties and in the month of July we have 8 properties under contract. Here at Rocky Mountain Real Estate we will protect you in your real estate purchase or if you desire to sell a property we will help you determine a fair value.
