The Top 10 Money Mistakes People Make

At one time or another everyone makes a mistake- even when it comes to your finances. However, if you keep making the same missteps over and over again it will lead to bigger problems. Learning from these common money mistakes can help position you for a solid financial future.

  1. Spending more than you earn. A large segment of people in the United States live above their means; that can mean struggling financially throughout your life. Getting your budget under control isn’t only about creating a solid plan from which to launch your financial future. Having enough money left at the end of the month to add to savings or pay off your debts can lift a huge psychological weight.
    Correcting overspending is as simple as cutting back on nonessential expenses such as dining out, shopping or other entertainment. If you can learn to trim down mouthy purchases, you can likely free up some needed cash at the end of the month to put toward long-term financial goals. However, if you’re struggling  and have already cut out all the extra spending, it may be time to look into more far-reaching solutions. For example, you might be able to renegotiate certain services such as cable and internet, or reach out to your lenders about altering the terms of your monthly debt payments.
  2. Putting off financial planning until tomorrow. “I’ll get to it later” usually never happens.  Address your financial planning within the next two weeks.  If not, you may miss some financial planning opportunities or make things more difficult for yourself.
    Try setting aside time once a week or even once a month to check in on your finances and accomplish important goals.
  3. Failing to save for emergencies. This is a wake-up call – 60 percent of Americans don’t have enough money in their savings account to pay for an unexpected $1,000 expense. Millions of people are without a safety net, and even one accident could be devastating to their finances.
    The recommended amount so you have enough cash set aside to cover all of your family’s expenses for three to six months. A good rule of thumb is to save 10 percent of your net income. If that amount is impossible due to your monthly expenses, try starting with 5 percent and increase that amount by 1 percent each month until you’ve reached the 10 percent threshold.

  1. Postponing retirement saving until later in life. Many Millennial and Gen Z workers entered the job market more concerned with paying off their student loans than saving for retirement.  The retirement age of 65 -70 can seem like a long way off to someone in their early 20s, however, money saved early will grow into a much larger nest egg as the years pass.
    For example, if you have an IRA with a 6 percent annual return, and you start contributing $2,000 per year into that account at age 25, you’ll have a total value of $328,095 at age 65 from your $80,000 investment (40 x $2.000). If you wait just five years and start your $2,000 annual contribution at age 30, you’ll end up with only $236,242 from an investment of $70,000 (35 x $2,000). If you have the income available, it’s never too early to start saving.
  2. Taking a long time to pay off your high-interest debt. It’s hard to save when you’re in considerable debt — especially if you’re losing money every month to high-interest rates. If you have multiple debts that all need your attention, it’s difficult to know where to prioritize. But paying off debts with high-interest rates is often a great strategy that can save you money in the long run.
    Begin by paying off your debt with the highest interest rate, which will often be a credit card account. If you have the cash on hand, pay off everything that isn’t tax-deductible. For example, say you have $5,000 stashed away that’s earning only 1 percent interest. That money would be put to far better use to pay off your credit card debts.
  3. Always buying new cars without considering used options. Did you know that the minute you drive a new car off the lot, its value drops by as much as 25 percent?  If you need a new car, consider a used car. Buying used means the depreciation has already come out of the previous owner’s pocket – not yours. The loss of value in a car is far less from years three to six than from years one to three, which means you’ll get more of your money back when the time comes to sell the car.
  4. Not buying enough insurance coverage. Having the right insurance — including medical, automobile, homeowners, long-term care, life and disability — is key to good financial planning. While it can be difficult to figure out the kinds of insurance and the amount of coverage you may need, not having the right balance of insurance can be disastrous if you’re hit with an unexpected expense.
    Experts say to review your insurance coverage each year and determine which policies you may or may not need based on any major life events you’ve experienced. For example, if you’ve purchased a newer, more expensive car, it’s time to reevaluate your auto insurance. If you’ve recently gotten married or added a baby to your household, it may be time to take a look at your health insurance. If you’ve completed a major, value-adding home remodel, it’s probably a good idea to increase your homeowner’s insurance.
  5. Not monitoring your credit scores and credit reports. Credit scores can affect you in many ways – from borrowing money, to buying a home and even renting an apartment, it is very important to see a credit score similar to what a potential lender may see. You can easily check your credit profile with each of the three nationwide credit bureaus, and then work with your lenders to correct any problems or errors that you discover.
  6. Lacking an investment strategy, or not sticking to one. If you invest in stocks or mutual funds as part of your savings plan, it’s important to have a strategy for that money. A common misstep is spending too much time and effort trying to time the market, hunting for the “big payoff” or chasing the investment of the month (or week or day). Instead, you need to decide on a strategy and stick to your plan.
  7. Not having a will. Suppose the worst were to happen and you die tomorrow. Would your loved ones be provided for? If you pass away without a will, a court will determine who gets what based your state’s laws.
    However, when you prepare a will, you’re creating a legal document that clearly defines what you want to happen to your money and other assets after you’re gone. While no one likes to think about their own death, having a will in place not only makes your wishes known but also can reduce the stress of your surviving loved ones who are already facing a difficult time. An even better option, if you have some assets is a Trust. Trusts are more expensive and more complicated, but do a better job of transferring wealth when you do finally leave this earth.

There is a good chance you’ve made at least one of these mistakes throughout the process of managing your finances — and that’s okay. The key is to identify and understand financial missteps so that you can do your best to prevent them moving forward.

The Year of the Tiger – Chinese New Year festivities around Las Vegas

Another Lunar New Year has come and this year we honor the year of the Tiger. What should we expect this year?

The tiger embodies courage and bravery, so the new year could symbolize resilience and strength — even in times of struggle, scholar Jonathan H.X. Lee said. … The holiday, which is observed by primarily East Asian countries and Vietnam, in addition to their diasporas, ushers in the Year of the Tiger. The animal, one of a dozen in the Chinese zodiac, is considered a positive sign, often associated with the defeat of evil.

Collectively we have been living in the shadows of a great evil, the pandemic,” Lee said. “And I think 2022, the Year of the Tiger, will be a year when there will be movement towards driving out that evil.

To celebrate the coming year there are many places that have activities going on.  Traditionally, a dragon parade and carnival procession take place in the city as well. The main venue for the celebration is Fremont Street. Restaurants abound with various Chinese dishes. People wish each other wealth, health, and good luck.

Another excellent thing to do during Chinese New Year festivities is visiting Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, which hosts a vibrant seasonal display from mid-January through early March.

Downtown Summerlin has had a parade on February 1,  The property celebrates the Year of the Tiger from Feb. 1-15 with festive décor throughout its common areas. Highlights include picture-prefect oversized 2022 letters in the Macy’s Promenade, a larger-than-life Chinese dragon partially submerged in the water feature at the Dining Arroyo, and a photo wall filled with festive décor located in the hallway near H&M.

Downtown Summerlin also will host a red envelope giveaway through the Summerlin app from Feb. 1-15. Guests have an opportunity to receive a complimentary red envelope filled with chocolate coins and surprise gift cards while supplies last. Redemptions take place at Concierge, located in the Breezeway of the ONE Summerlin office building.

Resort Las Vegas for 11th Annual Chinese New Year in the Desert™ taking place at the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas on Thursday, Feb 3: 12pm – 1pm.

Saturday, February 5 at the Fashion Show Mall on the Strip, you will find a captivating Lunar New Year exhibition, with immersive décor throughout the center and a parade at 2:00 pm.

How to plan your major home improvement projects this year

2022 the home improvement professional contractors will be busier than usual.  There are still supply chain issues and there are less skilled people willing to do the labor than in prior years.

The best move on your part is to plan ahead. Booking a contractor early will make the project go smoother, and gives you additional time for planning and design and more room for contractors to line up materials and labor. Here are two projects that you might be interested in doing.  They are both major focal points if and when you decide to sell your home, and give you a lot of joy by having done them

Winter: Kitchen remodeling

The kitchen area, in most homes this room is the heart of your home and it might be ready for a remodel. This is one of the most rewarding projects a homeowner can take on. The kitchen can be among the most costly and overwhelming rooms to remodel, so working with a reliable kitchen designer to express what you want and need in this space, plus a contractor early on is a good idea. This can be a huge advantage for you in the long term since it can have an excellent return on investment for your resale value.

In most families the kitchen is the home’s social center, so think about how you want it to interact with the rest of the home especially when you have friends or relatives over.   You might want to knock down a wall to have the open kitchen concept so you and your guests can mingle while you are putting the finishing touches on what you are serving.

National average: $13,000-$38,000

Early Spring: Adding an in-ground pool

The installation of an in-ground swimming pool definitely adds luxury far and above any other addition to your home. Pools offer many years of enjoyment, and an in-ground model will enhance your home’s value.

When you are hiring a swimming pool installer, research them and solicit multiple bids.  Plus if you have a friend that installed an in-ground pool and was happy with their pool professional you could contact that company.  A pool is a significant investment that will take several weeks to install, however, if you start in the early spring, you’ll be enjoying the water before summer. It’s worth it to take extra time to get the right professional.

National average: $36,000-$66,500

If you are planning to remodel or install you should be doing your planning and hiring of professionals now.  Please contact me – Jeff Vegas, your REALTOR for life.  I can give referrals to you for several professionals in any category when it comes to home improvement.  And when the projects are done you will be so happy to have done them.

The Speeding Theatre-Over 55 Presents:  Jack Benny’s Not 39 Anymore

by Marv Siegel

A running gag on the Jack Benny Show was about celebrating his perpetual 39th Birthday. Like Jack Benny, Norman insists that he’s as young as he feels. Retirement remorse leads him to hatch one cockamamy business scheme after another. His loving wife, Edna, is threatened when she discovers that their new neighbor, Rosemary, had a romance with Norman years ago. She also fears Rosemary’s son becoming a match for her daughter, and tries everything in her power to keep both pairs apart. Hilarity ensues!!!​

This show is a must see!  Why you may ask?  I’M IN IT!!!.  That is correct Jeff Vegas, your Realtor for Life loves the theatre and loves to perform, (when I am not taking care of all your Real Estate needs).  I am grateful to be doing live theatre again.  If you are comfortable enough, come out and see this fun show.

Flexible Spaces for Kids

Let’s face it when you are creating a unique space for your children it is usually a bigger job than you expect. This is especially true if you want to come up with something that will stand the test of time. Of course, the needs and wants of your children will change as they get bigger and older. If you don’t account for these changes, then sooner or later that “perfect” room you designed for your little one will be outdated and possibly even unwanted.

Is there anything that you can do other than completely redesign your kids’ rooms every few years?

Happily, the answer is yes. By taking into account the way that children’s needs change over time, you can come up with more flexible designs that can be easily adapted as your child’s interests shift. There will still be periodic changes that have to be made, of course, however, this type of plan will keep you from having to start from the ground up each time. The following suggestions are a few things to keep in mind to help you create some of these more flexible spaces for your kids.

Start Simple

When coming up with the initial design for your child’s bedroom or playroom, it’s a good idea to take something of a minimalist approach to your design. Try to figure out what the absolute essentials are, then see if there is an ageless way to approach them. Add color to the room, however, lean a bit more toward light or neutral shades instead of going with more extreme colors that your child may grow to dislike. An example is a girl’s room painted a bright pink.  At some point, she may say it’s too girly pink.

Invest in a few key furniture items that can be repurposed over time instead of buying specialty pieces that will only be used for a short while. Use colored rugs and other removable accents instead of going for changing the carpeting. Your goal is to create a simple space that has a lot of potential so that as your child’s interests change, you’ll have a base to move back toward and adapt the room from.

Customize the Little Things

Once you have a base design for your child’s room, it’s time to start customizing it to make it appear much more in line with their interests. This is where you can get creative and really try to match the room to your child. Lamps, posters, decorative items, and more can go a long way toward customizing the space while still being relatively easy to remove and replace if your child loses interest over time.

This is also a good time to consider painting furniture items such as desks and dressers. While this may not always be an option, most of the time it’s not that big of a deal to add a coat of paint to simple furniture items to help them better match the look of a room. By painting these accent pieces to match the overall layout of the room, you can make a notable change to the space that can be redone or updated in the future as needed.

Designing with Kids

As your children grow, sit down with them to get their input so that you can make additional changes that actually align with their interests. This doesn’t mean that you have to rush out and buy everything that your child wants, of course; use these chats to gauge how happy they are with their room, what sort of changes they might be interested in, and if there are any pieces of furniture or decorations that they seem to be outgrowing. The nature of their room is going to change over time, so make sure that they are a part of the conversation on how it needs to change.

It may also be a good idea to speak to an interior designer or decorator who has experience with creating functional and stylish children’s rooms.  Contact me- Jeff Vegas, your Realtor for Life,  I can suggest a designer that can help you make both you and your child happy.

You have heard the name, however What is a Vessel Sink?

The bathroom is the most commonly overlooked area in the home when it comes to making fashionable changes. We all know that painting, adding accent decorations, and changing the various fixtures in the room will revamp its look. The one option that is overlooked and by the way probably the most stylish and noticeable is replacing your old boring sink with a vessel sink.

Vessel sinks aren’t right for every bathroom or every person’s more traditional sense of style. When they do work, they can really make a splash and give a focal point to the bathroom.  If you’re not sure exactly what a vessel sink is or how one would fit into your bathroom’s decoration, read on. I will cover the basics of these sinks, how they differ from more traditional sinks, and how to tell if one is right for your home.

The Ins and Outs of Vessel Sinks

The layout of the sinks in most bathrooms are pretty.  You have a basin is inserted into a countertop (and in many cases is an actual part of the countertop material), giving you a recessed area to wash your hands and do everything else that you need a sink for. They’re functional and more aesthetically pleasing than the metal sinks that are often seen in kitchens and utility areas. In other words the bathroom sink doesn’t do much to stand out.

Vessel sinks serve all the same purposes as a traditional basin sink, however have much more stylish flair to them. Instead of being a recessed sink built into the countertop, vessel sinks are a standing vessel or sculpted bowl that typically sits on top of the counter or only partially recessed into it. This creates a unique look for the sink that calls to mind a sense of nostalgia for more Victorian-era hardware. The faucet typically stands separate from the vessel and is either mounted to the counter or to the wall, adding to the overall look and highlighting the difference between vessel sinks and traditional basins.

Vessel Sink Installation

Compared to some other plumbing jobs, vessel sink installation can be a bit easier, however may also be easy to mess up if you aren’t careful. Provided that you aren’t installing a semi-recessed vessel sink, the main concerns for installing the sink are the installation of the faucet hardware and making sure that the drain hole in the countertop is the right size to line up with the vessel drain. Theoretically, one of these sinks can be installed by a single person who has a good idea of what they are doing.  In my opinion it would be worth your while to have a licensed plumber, that has installed vessel sinks to install yours. Need help finding a licensed plumber with vessel sink experience? – no worries just contact me, Jeff Vegas, Your Realtor for Life.

With that said, there are still a few things that need to be kept in mind during installation. The counter will need to be sufficiently large to accommodate the vessel and faucet, and made of a material that’s sufficiently protected against water, as vessel sinks are more prone to splashing than more traditional sinks. You will also need enough vertical height to accommodate the sink; even a modest vessel sink can add 6 inches or more to the height of the sink area, so you’ll need the necessary clearance for both that and the faucet hardware. Mounting and sealing the sink are also more important than with traditional sinks, as the last thing you want is for your vessel to leak around its drain and potentially weaken the countertop below it.

If you purchased a home with lower counter heights, this can be a great way to raise the sink to a more suitable height.

Are Vessel Sinks Right for You?

Vessel sinks can be very striking, giving a unique look to your bathroom that really catches the eye. They come in a range of different shapes and materials, letting you customize your sink to meet your personal design preferences. They also don’t necessarily require as large of a counter or support structure as more traditional sinks, so they can work well in some smaller bathrooms provided they’re properly mounted. Vertical space and splash considerations may create issues, however.

The Original Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit in Las Vegas

The Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit has been thrilling people for months at the once-in-a-lifetime exhibit. I went to see the exhibit and was immediately impressed on how I was drawn into the paintings.

The work of Vincent Van Gogh is all around you – one painting at a time.  The painting is even underneath you, which gives you the feeling of being part of the actual painting that you are looking at.  The paintings slowly morph from one to another and you can see how the leaves and flowers come to be, as well as the buildings and the people featured. 

All of this has great background music which changes as the periods of Van Gogh’s work evolves.  You see some of his most famous pieces like A Starry Night, Irises, Self Portrait, Wheatfields with Crows and Bedroom in Arles among many more.

To help reimagine this massive venue, Immersive Van Gogh has joined forces with Emmy Award-winning and Tony Award-nominated designer David Korins , known for his set design of countless Broadway hits including Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen.

As Creative Director, Korins uses his infinite creativity to incorporate ingenious interior design, high-tech activations, and new experiential elements to the venue for a unique experience only available to Las Vegas, Nevada.

The location of the immersive exhibit is at the Shops at Crystals adjacent to ARIA Resort & Casino, at 3720 S Las Vegas Blvd.
