70 degrees at Red Rock on Feb. 5

Tired of all the bad storms we've had this winter? Maybe it's time to move to Las Vegas! We've had a little bit of cold weather this year but one thing you can count on in Las Vegas is you will never have to shovel snow.

Typical days in January have a high of 58 degrees and a low of 34 degrees. February has an average high of 63 and low of 39 degrees. In 2013, we have had a few days where the high was only in the 40s. We dipped below freezing a few nights. That was back in January.

Over the ten years I have lived in Las Vegas, we've usually seen it snow one day per year. Sometimes that snow is only a little dusting of snow flurries. Occasionally an inch or two will accumulate. When it does accumulate, it behaves

Las Vegas Luxury Homes for Sale in 2013 are showing a definite uptick in the market.  As the housing market collapsed, we have watched the number of homes listed at more than one million reach a staggering 3 years worth of inventory by 2009-2010.  Today, we have 252 single family homes listed for more than a million and we sold 182 homes that were listed for more than a million over the past twelve months.  That averages out to just under 17 months worth of inventory of Las Vegas Luxury Homes for Sale. Having more than six months of inventory still translates into a buyer's market and yes, the luxury home communities are where we are still finding some of the best deals for our clients.  We are still seeing some luxury homes selling for half of what they

The Smith Center for the Performing ArtsIs there culture in Las Vegas? That's a question we hear from clients who are considering moving to Las Vegas. Years ago, it might have been difficult to answer that with a firm yes.  Today, Las Vegas can hold its own with any of our West Coast Cities.  

A look at the events of the past week, finds plenty of culture in Las Vegas. For starters, we had the Tony award winning Broadway Revival of "Anything Goes" with Cole Porter's music playing at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts. Smith Center's Cabaret Jazz venue presented  Grammy winning jazz vocalist Kurt Eling last Friday and Saturday. Color Purple at Smith Center

This condo was purchased as a vacation home when the sellers fell in love with its beautiful Mountain views and the large wrap-around balcony that offers space to entertain as well as to sit and enjoy the sunrise/sunset over the Mountains to the East of Las Vegas.

It’s easy to understand how this condominium appeals to those who are looking for a quiet spot to relax that’s only a short walk to the excitement of the Strip.

The home has been furnished with attention to every detail. In addition to the contemporary furniture, you’ll find window treatments to block the morning sun for those days when one would like to sleep

California moves to Vegas and it isn't just the 1% anymore. The migration may have started with the wealthiest and has included many business owners who find California's environment to be a hindrance to starting and running a business.  Since many of our California expatriates are wealthy, it might be considered a trend of the top 1%.

However, we are finding that it isn't only the wealthy who are getting pinched by the new Prop 30. An example is a couple who are buying their first Las Vegas home. They are "retired", however, she went back to work part time and he took another full time job which will last another 2 years before he tries retiring again. They're looking for a modest home in an age-restricted community.  They're financially comfortable,
