Nevada Real Estate >> Las Vegas Real Estate Specialist: November 2007

Las Vegas Buyers & Irrational Thought Processes!

I just have to put this one out there and dedicate it to all the buyers who think they are the *only* buyers that are aware of the three REO auctions in the next two weeks.  There are just a little over 600 properties in those auctions and there is an ABUNDANCE of attention being drawn to them:  yellow signs all over the city, agents letting their clients know, late night informercials about them, etc.

I am guessing these 600 properties will go close to their current list prices.  Especially since Hudson & Marshall have opened online bidding and "pre-Auction" bids up.  It is too dang easy to bid pre-Auction and you are just giving them a starting point for a person who physically attends the auctions.

There are just slightly over 2000 bank owned listings in the MLS, with more coming online each and every day.  So, assuming all 600 of those listings were listed in the MLS, that leaves you another 1400 to play with while everyone else has their attention drawn to the auctions, capiche?   It's amazing how some people cannot capiche!  There are some incredible deals out there and they aren't auction properties!

Also, please back away from the late night informercials on how to buy and extract instant equity out of your property that you think you are going to get 50% less than the already low list price and has multiple offers on it (another story another day perhaps!) You cannot hard money a property and refi/cash out into a conventional in less than thirty days.  Any credible loan officer will tell you the truth. 

Our market would be WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYy hotter if you could.  Think about it! 

Giving Rey Gallegos some link love for help on this post!
