Boost #1: Front door
Clean all of the cobwebs out and givie it a fresh coat of paint. Maybe even brighten it up by painting it a brighter-than-usual color, like red or blue. Pick a color that will stand out but also complement your home’s exterior. Be sure to ask permission from your HOA, if you have one.Keep in mind people stand at your front door while waiting to come in and they look around the whole time they are waiting.

Boost #2: Highlight your front porch
Many homeowners use their backyards for outdoor living and forget about their front porches. Even if you personally never sit on your front porch, adding a little furniture can help future homeowners envision themselves in your home before they ever step foot inside. Some inexpensive, secondhand wicker furniture and bright pillows will make even a small front porch look enticing. Maybe even add a small table.

Boost #3: Lighten up
Potted flowers brighten up the space and are very welcoming. Get a few from your local nursery, and of course, don’t forget to water them.

Muti family investing in Las Vegas?

I love 2-4 unit properties as an investment. If you buy a 4-plex, and you have one vacancy, you still have 3 tenants paying you. And did you know that loans for 1-4 unit residential properties have exactly the same requirements? Do any of these investment properties catch your eye?

There are plenty of home choices in the Northwest part of the Las Vegas Valley (89149)

As a buyer, it’s nice to have choices, and the area near Providence and Centennial Hills has more “supply” than most of the rest of the valley. That means less competition for buyers and (typically) better values. Check out some of the house there by clicking this link;

Downtown houses are going through a revitalization too.

In the past several years, Downtown Las Vegas has seen many positive changes. When I moved to the city in 1993, downtown was not desirable place to hang out at all. Slowly, over the years, and beginning with the Freemont Street Experience, the downtown has seen a ton of positive changes. So many, that now the houses built in that area the 1940’s-1960’s have been slowly being renovated. In the John S Park region and the historic Huntridge neighborhood, there are some really charming houses and plenty of fixer-uppers too. It’s a great for a first-time homebuyer or just someone who doesn’t want all of the houses to look the same. Check out what’s for sale down there;

It’s always sunny in Sun City – and there are homes for sale

There are many Sun City communities by Del Web in the Las Vegas valley designed specifically for the over 55 homeowner. I actually call them “summer camp for seniors”, as they are more than just a place to live, they are a place for seniors to thrive socially. They have community centers with a full schedule of activities from various card games to exercise programs to day trips to crafts to book clubs and on and on.
