This photo was taken on 10-3-06, as you can see there is still quite a bit of work to be done on the new KB model center in the new community of Inspirada in Henderson, NV. But take a look at the photo taken a month ago and you will see there has been lots of progress. The sales office is starting to take shape and they are close to putting in some streets. Sales have been set to start in October but my guess it they'll be lucky to hit the end of the month! I know there will be lots of interest in this new area!

Last week I thought we might have hit a high in the number of listing on the market as we were flat for a week but now we are up about another 80 listings in the past week for a total of 21,378. This is the number of active properties for sale in Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Henderson and Boulder City as of Sept. 12, 2006. As I said last week I've been posting the total every week and here is the link to past post on a different blog. The number just keep climbing and sellers keep dropping their prices! It's a great time to be a buyer!

I've been posting the total number of listings in the Las Vegas every week or so on another blog but I've decided to switch and post them here. This is the first week I've seen a DECREASE!!!! As of today we are up to 21,296 active listings in the Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Henderson and Boulder City Nevada area. On the 28th of Aug. we were at 21,299, it's only three but it's a start! Maybe we are going to starting turning this slow market around. Keep your fingers crossed.

Southern Nevada is getting its first "Green" building.  It will be a mixed use condo building located in the city of Henderson.  It will feature solar power collectors on the roof, Heat Mirror insulated glass, tankless water heaters, low wattage lights, energy star rated appliances, natural insulation and many other energy saving features. The builder is a LEED member (Leadership in Energy Efficient Design) and has several projects in Brussels and different parts of Russia.  When complete, Green Valley Lofts will house 44 residential condos.  With the cost of oil showing no signs of dropping in price, I think consumers are going to demand more energy efficient housing.  Most of the current builders here in Las Vegas only offer Energy Star rated new homes.  Some are starting to offer sol...
