I have been at this real estate buying thing since 1980. Real life experience in the real estate combat zone has taught me there are two times to invest in real estate: when things are plummeting and when things are recovering.
As anyone who lived through the Las Vegas Real Estate Apocalypse (my scientific term) knows, house prices fell way beyond economic reason. InDecember 2011, which turned out to be bottom of the market, you could buy a home for the price of the land and pay for one bathroom. The rest of the house was free.
In January 2012 I sold a townhouse to a couple retiring from Cali for $103,000. Today the same unit next door is listed for $200,000. That's a pretty nice return for 57 months.
Of course, you missed the train on that strategy. Fortunately, you can catch the second train.
Yes, Virginia, Las Vegas is recovering...nicely. Today the Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation reported that 1,301,300 Nevadans have a job. (There are only 2.7 million of us and there are a lot of retirees here.) That number surpasses the pre-Apocalypse top employment number of 1,297,600. Better yet, our state has enjoyed 68 months of consecutive growth.
People get more confident when things get better. It's a good time to buy or sell because things are stable. If a bubble does start brewing, this time know better and cash in your chips!
P.S. Call, text, email, send a carrier pigeon when you are ready.

"I do not often write reviews that said, I am writing this review in the hopes that it may sway some in favor of working with Jake.
After a very difficult home buying experience over the course of the last few years, I was finally put in touch with Jake Soteros. Jake was the complete antithesis of all my prior experiences dealing with real estate agents during the home buying process. Jake was patient, knowledgeable, and ready to help in any way he could in order to assist me throughout. I was able to finally find the best home for me and my family, and as a benefit learned a wealth of lessons about real estate, the home buying process, and the market in general from working with him."
