Is it time to sell your Las Vegas home?  After years of declining values and a glut of homes on the market, the number of listings in the Greater Las Vegas MLS has declined to an all time low.  We've been lingering below 5000 listings for several months.  

Currently, we're right at that number.  The general consensus is that the banks will be releasing more foreclosures later this year, but in a recent appearance on the FOX News Business Channel, RE/MAX CEO Margaret Kelly expressed optimism that we are past the worst part of the market. We're not out of the woods yet by anyone's estimates but we are at a point where some of the homeowners who have been sitting on the sidelines may finally be able to sell their home without having to do a short sale.

The Red Rock Conservation Area is popular among tourist who like to get off the beaten path of the luxury Hotels and Casinos on the Strip and head out to explore some of our natural desert.  Located just a 20-30 minute drive West of the Strip and only five minutes West of Summerlin, it's also an area where you find locals going to explore hiking trails and rock climbing.

A loop takes you around the area in about 45 minutes.  We like to visit Red Rock several times a year to explore the changing desert.  On a recent visit, after the rains, we were surprised at how much green there was.  With a desert that doesn't get much rain, when we do get it the changes in the landscape are noticeable.

One of our favorite spots is the Willow Springs Picnic Area
