Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

The Tuscany Residential Village is a master planned golf community located in the southeastern section of the Las Vegas Valley. Guard-gated and beautifully landscaped throughout, Tuscany is anchored by the Botticelli Marketplace, a 35,000 square foot Recreation Center and the 6,906 yard Tuscany Golf Course. Tuscany Village Association fees are currently a very reasonable $140 a month and there are no SID/LID fees.

New pricing has just been announced for the Zanetti neighborhood of Rhodes Homes at the Tuscany Village. The new Zanetti pricing on its five floor plans starts at just under $200,000 for a single-story two bedroom home with two baths, great room, gourmet kitchen island and two-car garage. Each Tuscany home at Zanetti is offered with optional French doors in the master bedroom and a fireplace in the living room. Options for additional bedrooms, cabinets, laundry sinks and linen closets are offered per plan.

The Continuing Attraction of Summerlin Real Estate

Thursday, April 24th, 2008

Despite the fact that Las Vegas real estate is going through a painful adjustment, the master-planned community of Summerlin homes continues to impress and inspire. Summerlin currently boasts more than 95,000 residents after commencing development 18 years ago. Master-plan amenities include nine golf courses, upscale shopping centers, high-end boutiques, restaurants galore in every price range, cultural facilities, prestigious office parks and more than 100 actively selling floor plans. The market for both new and resale Summerlin real estate is among the most active in Southern Nevada.

Outdoor recreation activities are the hallmark of the Summerlin residential experience. The community is home to more than 100 parks (many with fantastic ball fields) and nearly 150 miles of desert-themed trails for walking, jogging and cycling. Nearby Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area provides scenic and challenging hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing. Ready to hang up the sports equipment and hang-out in the middle of some traditional Las Vegas action? Jump on Summerlin Parkway or the I-215 Beltway and it’s a 20 minute ride to the Las Vegas Strip. Once you hit Las Vegas Boulevard…anything goes…

Red Rock National Conservation Area: Part II

Wednesday, April 16th, 2008

Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area recently hosted the fifth annual Red Rock Rendezvous presented by Mountain Gear and North Face. This world-class rock climbing event and festival was attended by over 1,000 climbers from across the country, including some of the most accomplished climbers in the world. Las Vegas, Nevada is proud to play a starring annual role in the process of raising the profile of rock climbing as a sport. The majestic cliffs of Red Rock Canyon give us that opportunity!

Since its inception five years ago, Red Rock Rendezvous has offered clinics for advanced, intermediate, and beginning climbers. The 2008 climbing festival also raised more than $15,000 for various non-profit organizations including Friends of Red Rock. This terrific local event provides a great opportunity for Las Vegas residents to enjoy a beautiful weekend at Red Rock Canyon and to sample a sport they can enjoy in their own backyard year round. Next year’s event will feature an expanded version of the Intro to Climbing classes that will include all your gear! Las Vegas, Nevada is so much more than gambling and nightlife. The truth is, Southern Nevada is one of the best places in the country to enjoy outdoor recreation and sport. The Michelle Sterling Las Vegas Real Estate Team is always talking to clients about the Las Vegas that awaits new residents “beyond the neon”.

Las Vegas Real Estate: International Investors Make Their Play on a Wide Open Field

Monday, April 14th, 2008

The current exchange rate environment combined with radical repricing in the residential market make the Las Vegas investment opportunity highly attractive for international investors. For overseas players with deep pockets and realistic time frames, today’s conditions provide the “perfect storm” in which to make their moves. Internationally recognized as the global capital of opulence, decadence and entertainment, no one doubts the long-term future of Las Vegas as a money maker from virtually every point of view (residential real estate included). The numbers tell the story best; excellent population growth, massive investment in new strip resorts, job creation that other cities could only dream of and dirt cheap prices due to rampant speculation by the uneducated masses. Sophisticated financial operators make their careers by striking aggressively in these very types of circumstances. Different players are making their moves in different aspects of the market. Major builders have dangerously overextended themselves and are now forced to offer incredibly attractive terms on new Las Vegas homes. The market for high rise Las Vegas luxury condos? It’s a highly opportune time for aggressive negotiation as yesterday’s pie-in-the-sky buyers squirm and beg to get out of their contracts and units fall into repossession left and right. The market for resale Las Vegas homes? Considering the fact that almost 50% of homes for sale are vacant and Las Vegas foreclosures are among the highest in the country, the opportunities on the buy side are simply huge.
