Tips on Getting Your Las Vegas Home Ready to Sell

Every Las Vegas home has both desirable and undesirable features. Put yourself in the buyer’s position. If were looking to buy this house, what would you think? Make a checklist of both the good and the bad, and plan to deal with each constructively.

The desirable features must be accentuated! 

These features could include the floor plan, landscaping, architecture, upgrades, décor and energy usage, to name a few.  Here are a few suggestions:

Display the brilliance of the floor plan by arranging furniture appropriately.
Emphasize your favorite wall with the right paint colors and wall hangings.  All paint should be neutral in color.  Consider taking down the pictures on the family wall and replacing them with something eloquent.  Depersonalizing your home will appeal to the masses!
Highlight the energy star rating by leaving several utility bills on display.  A perspective buyer cannot overlook the idea of saving money on utilities.
Stress good lawn care by picking up all trash, replacing dead plants and grooming well.  Remember your landscaping will be part of a good first impression. 

The undesirable features must either be remedied or veiled!

If you are not crazy about some features, prospective buyers will feel the same way.  You should strive to make them fall in love with the rest of the house. More often than not, a buyer will overlook a few items they don’t care for in order to have the ones they cannot live without. Here are a few suggestions:

Remove all clutter.  Any unnecessary items should be sold or stored.  “He is no fool who sells that which he does not want to move.”
Clean the house.  All faucets should be shined, floors spotless, closets and cabinets organized.

Turn on the houses charm with these options:

Place fresh cut flowers on display.
Put pleasant air fresheners throughout the house.  
Make sure the houses temperature and lighting are precisely right.  
After all that, get a second opinion. Your Realtor® will be a good source.  Also ask a friend or relative what they think. Ultimately, it will be the buyer’s opinion of your house that matters most, so glean criticism from other sources.

About Assembly Bill 284 (AB 284 NV)
Real estate agents in Las Vegas are in tuned to the recently passed AB 284 that went into effect October 1 2011 but those outside of the Las Vegas real estate market arent too up to date. To sum it all up AB 284 will delay the foreclosure process. How? By increasing the requirements necessary for lenders to foreclose. In light of all the robosigning and the increased investigations of 14 major lenders for foreclosure fraud this Bill is meant to be one of the solutions to this ridiculous problem. While this most likely will expose fraud and give homeowners the ability now to obtain information on who is holding their mortgage increasing paperwork and having it recorded through the county clerk is simply going to create a huge back up in the system. With various budget cuts its unlikely that the clerks office is going on a hiring frenzy to keep up with all the work. The number of foreclosure filings for Clark County have already significantly dropped in the past month since the bill went into effect literally from once were thousands of filings a month now down to hundreds. Again this will reduce fraud and expose fraud allowing those involved to be prosecuted andor fined accordingly which overall is in the best interest of all homeowners however the back up in the system is going to be disastrous. The market is already slow its only going to slow down further. Tweet

Las Vegas Foreclosures and Robo-Signing
In most recent news it has been announced that an independent group of consultants along with federal bank regulators will be looking into homes that were foreclosed upon by 14 major lenders between January 1 2009 and December 31 2010. Anyone keeping up with the real estate market knows that Las Vegas foreclosures were numerous during that specific timeframe. After various complaints and suspicions further investigations decided to be conducted to uncover any foul play by the lenders and their employees. Many of these corporations are being accused of robosigning the illegal processing and obtaining of signatures on foreclosure documents quickly without going through the proper procedures. If after thorough review of these foreclosures the lender is found to have repossessed a home without going through the proper channels former homeowners may be entitled to compensation. Homeowners who lost their homes between the dates of January 1 2009 and December 31 2010 with 1 of the 14 listed lenders being investigated who believe that their primary residence was unfairly foreclosed upon can call 18889529105 and request a form to fill out and return no later than April 30 2012. If the complain meets the requirements more action will be taken to determine compensation.
