How do you purchase a home in the Las Vegas Area?I realize list price means nothing anymore but I don't understand the concept of multiple offers. It sounds like a silent auction not a property sale. I'm not talking about short sales, just properties being listed with an agent by the owner. I live 2500 miles from Las Vegas and don't want to make a dozen trips because the home owner can't decide the price he wants. Is it possible for a buyer's agent to go to the sellers agent and find out how much the seller really wants for the house (subject to normal inspections etc.) without any dickering and then either buy it or not. I'm not talking about trying to go under list, just how much is it. I mean the seller must have a number in mind and if he just wants to wait until a bunch of offers come in than it's an auction not a sale. How long a time are these offers accumulating before the seller picks one? I mean if it's listed at 175,000 and the seller wants 225,000 than why not just say so. I really don't like playing let's make a deal. Am I missing something? It sounds like even if you are willing to pay whatever the seller wants you still have to go through some sort of bidding process (It's an auction then no matter what it's called). So cash or not you apparently just can't go out with a buyer's agent find a home you like and purchase it in Las Vegas. Is this true? With the cost of flying the games could not go on to long.April 05 2013 - Las Vegas00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
