Summerlin Golf Real Estate at Siena is About Golf Course Beauty

Monday, August 8th, 2005

Approximately one third of the Summerlin homes at the Siena age-restricted Las Vegas golf community sit on the golf course itself. But I can tell you from experience, this is no ordinary golf course. It’s just plain gorgeous to look at and live with as part of your every day experience at Siena as a resident. I have clients who live at Siena and don’t even play golf at all, yet comment to me on how much they enjoy the natural beauty of the course. Just have lunch on the outdoor patio at the clubhouse and you’ll be a believer. Siena real estate is priced from the $400,000s to $1 million. A selection of Siena homes are available within 30 days, while model homes are ready for immediate move-in. Contact MS Las Vegas Real Estate for more information on Summerlin real estate and Las Vegas golf real estate at 888-349-2595.

Mirage Hotel to be Upgraded and Renovated

Monday, August 8th, 2005

My favorite piece of Las Vegas real estate on the Strip is about to get a major overhaul. The Mirage Hotel first opened it’s doors and fired up the volcano in 1989. It was a ground-breaking resort at the time and it’s done a great job of holding it’s own ever since. Now The Mirage is being given a new look and feel that revolves around restaurants and nightlife. The most dramatic of these is the new Cirque show being developed in secret and slated for debut next May. A little inside info for you…the show is to be based on the music of the Beatles and represents a new artistic exploration for Cirque. “Jet” nightclub is presently under construction and anyone who’s been to north valet has already seen the work in progress. Mirage will also create an upscale ultra lounge (a must for a top strip resort) to replace the lounge in the rainforest. Three new restaurants are also on the way to replace Moongate, Mikado and Renoir. Pretty exciting stuff! MS Las Vegas Real Estate can’t wait to check out Jet and Cirque! We’ll let you know.

A New Academic Medical Center for Las Vegas?

Monday, August 8th, 2005

A 61 acre parcel of Las Vegas real estate that is located in the downtown area and owned by the city is slated to be developed into a new teaching medical center if negotiations can be completed. The negotiations are being conducted between the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, the City of Las Vegas and State of Nevada higher education officials. This exciting new proposal is moving forward and all sides have agreed to start designing a master-plan for the proposed site. The vision being pursued is a jointly operated medical center that is based on the University of Pittsburgh’s medical expertise. The new academic center would provide a top-notch training facility for Nevada medical students combined with a research facility. Southern Nevada residents would benefit from an inclusive medical campus that would provide care for a multitude of medical needs. MS Las Vegas Real Estate welcomes the University of Pittsburgh to Las Vegas and wishes great success to this endeavor.

The IRS is after Wayne Newton again! Don’t they know he’s Mr. Las Vegas? They say he owes $1.8 million in taxes and penalties and it’s got something to do with a horse and some old cars. His Arabian horse ranch is some of the most splendid Las Vegas real estate in the entire valley. Let’s hope they don’t ask him to give that up any time soon!

The Strength of the Nevada Economy: Double Digits Plus!

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2005

Taxable sales by Nevada businesses jumped by double digits again in May by 13.2 percent. May actually makes 4 months in a row of double-digit increases as sales hit $3.8 billion for the month. With 11 months of the fiscal year under our belt, sales are up 14.1 percent overall. One of the most exciting aspects of the data concerns the issue of economic diversification. Increases were registered in virtually every category of sales activity tracked by the state, with automotive and retail as stand-outs. MS Las Vegas Real Estate continues to be encouraged by the strength and breadth of the Southern Nevada economy. You couldn’t ask for a stronger foundation for the market in Las Vegas homes.
