not really a tourist question......

I realize that this might not be the best place for this question....we are gonna be visiting Las Vegas in a couple of weeks and as a future retirement home is a topic of conversation for my husband and I, we thought we would consider looking at houses while there visiting. Can anyone recommend a good realtor in Vegas?? thanks!!

Go to the banks and look at foreclosures. I think Vegas has one of the highest foreclosure rates of any city in the country, with the exception of Detroit.....and, you sure don't wanna retire in Detroit !!

LOL...Detroit...yea, I might think of moving towards that suburb someday later, but definitely not to retire there...

I agree with placebets. Look at banks and foreclosures. Real estate prices in Vegas is not bad compared to some other known US cities..

Superb suggestion from both, also see realtor.com for multi-listings. They include short sales and foreclosures as well.

This is a great forum for all your relocation questions. I used it when I relocated and now use it to help others that are relocating.

If you want a ready to move into home a foreclosure may not be the way to go, too many of them are damaged by the previous owner once they receive their eviction notice. There are a few builders putting up new homes in the area.

Not sure if he is still in the business or not, we bought our current home and sold a condo through mark Bowman and thought he did excellent work. His company used to move you for free when you bought or sold a home through him. (702) 309-6683 Office
