How is the market and is there money to be made. I'm from California and for the most part it's not bad especially if you're investing. I know the housing here is a lot cheaper than Cali however is there money to be made? I also wanted to know the process to become licensed, ball park figure of fees and it is a simple process? I'm really hoping to get involved in the real estate industry first quarter of the New Year.&nbsp; I'm also looking forward to meeting and working with likeminded, goal orientated people, and successful people with known knowledge and guidance. My current line of work is in the travel industry. I work with clients looking to travel and sell people dream vacations! I love what I do, been in this industry over five years and now looking to broaden my horizons in another field that I'm also passionate about. I am also looking for a mentor as well. Please reply.

We can still get sellers top dollar, above appraisal value in most cases. In my opinion if you sell now you will have the ability to sell high and buy low again once the market softens and better deals present themselves. The days of bidding wars and selling for around 10% above appraisal value will soon be gone and buyers will have the opportunity to low ball and get deals at or below appraisal value again.</p><br \><br \>3 replies Thu, 29 Aug 2013 18:08:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/PART-2-Las-Vegas-Real-Estate-Market-Update-from-The-Adams-Team-at-Rothwell-Gornt-Companies/509177/ 2013-08-29T18:08:00Z I'm underwater. http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I%27m-underwater/397696/ I owe 252,000 and my house is assessed at 177,00, what can I do?<br \><br \>7 replies Wed, 04 May 2011 23:49:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I%27m-underwater/397696/ 2011-05-04T23:49:00Z Las Vegas Real Estate Market Update from The Adams Team at Rothwell Gornt Companies http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Las-Vegas-Real-Estate-Market-Update-from-The-Adams-Team-at-Rothwell-Gornt-Companies/509174/ <p><strong><em>PART 1 (SEE PART 2)</em></strong><br/>Due to higher interest rates, higher prices, certain hedge funds pulling out of Vegas, decreasing cashflow, increased traditional sales (more people can afford to do a traditional sale now that prices have gone up, less people are under water), etc Las Vegas inventory is on the rise. Early 2013 we had around 3,000 SFR, Condos, and Townhouses available for sale in areas 101 through 700, which include Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, and Henderson. As of today we have over 6800. Inventory has gone up week after week since the beginning of July. Above people were talking about Summerlin. I recently read that zip code 89138 which is in Summerlin has had an inventory increase of 260% in the last 3 months. If this trend continues the market will soften. To what degree it will soften is debatable due to several factors: new home building, if and when they release the 80,000+ homes that are currently in default in the Valley, the effects of AB 300 which will be off set by SB 321, etc.</p><p>Another important change that should be noted is that traditional sales now make up around 85% of available listings. This is a huge change compared to when REO's dominated the market and then short sales after that.</p><br/><br \><br \>11 replies Thu, 29 Aug 2013 18:04:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Las-Vegas-Real-Estate-Market-Update-from-The-Adams-Team-at-Rothwell-Gornt-Companies/509174/ 2013-08-29T18:04:00Z henderson homes http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/henderson-homes/505992/ Buy and sell homes with Bill and Fran Jenkins who are imaginative, passionate, and confident real estate consultants that specialize in the Las Vegas and Henderson valley.<br/><br/>Each transaction is wrought with hundreds of details, questions, and nuances requiring the right answer.

Some of the topics I was looking to get more info on are:</p><p>-New legislation passed here in NV AB300, SB321, also the new law that will allow underwater homeowners to short sell their homes to themselves without an "arms-length" transaction disclosure being required.</p><p>-Hedge funds leaving Vegas</p><p>-New/higher home prices combined with lower rental rates causing lower CAP rates and cash flow</p><p>-The 80,000+ homeowners that are in default</p><p>-The spike in NOD's being filed (Las Vegas is currently the 2nd leading city for NOD's being filed.</p><p>These are just a few of the factors our local market is currently facing. Due to these factors it is hard to predict the market going out further than then next 6 months. I would expect prices to rise over the next 6 months. After 6 months it gets tricky as there are so many factors that will come into play. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out.&nbsp; I am looking forward to hearing everyone's input on these and other topics concerning Las Vegas.</p><br \><br \>0 replies Mon, 17 Jun 2013 18:21:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Las-Vegas-market-going-through-changes/497577/ 2013-06-17T18:21:00Z I live in a condo at greenbriar our mortgage is paid for other Condo's are going for 40,000 and more http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I-live-in-a-condo-at-greenbriar-our-mortgage-is-paid-for-other-Condo%27s-are-going-for-40-000-and-more/425583/ our howm is rated as 39,000 .00 no <a href="http://www.zillow.com/mortgage-rates/">mortgage</a> O zip ..how come it is ratedat 38,000 it is in great condition . others next door are rated 40,000 .900 I dont get it !<br/>243 pecos way las vegas nv,89121 .I think you need to adjust the price higher get real where do you get this price when all others are in worse condition&nbsp;<br/>SLaird@aol.com<br \><br \>1 reply Mon, 12 Dec 2011 20:26:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I-live-in-a-condo-at-greenbriar-our-mortgage-is-paid-for-other-Condo%27s-are-going-for-40-000-and-more/425583/ 2011-12-12T20:26:00Z Fernley Nevada http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Fernley-Nevada/350007/ Think twice before moving to this town.

I was going to buy a few more properties but i am thinking of investing in Phoenix now. My vegas house is cash flow positive but has lost about 5% of its value in the last year. How is the Phoenix real estate market? Better than Vegas, worse than Vegas, same as Vegas??? Or is it wise just not to invest for another 2-3 years in either of the cities when probably the market would be close to bottom. I live In los Angeles and would be an absantee landlord.<br/>Thank you.
