Death Valley National Park - Las Vegas is home to lots of great parks and places for exploring the desert.  After ten years of living here, I finally got around to paying Death Valley a visit.  Getting there from Las Vegas is easy.  The quickest route is to head over Hwy 160 through Pahrump.  We were there in only 2 hours.

The Las Vegas housing market update for April 2013, shows that sales continued at a strong pace in March with a total of 3530 closing for the month.  We start April with 4342 properties listed for sale in the MLS.  That translates to just over a month's worth of inventory.  Historically, less than a six month inventory is considered a seller's market.  With just over a month's worth of inventory, it is strongly in favor of sellers.
