Vegas Downtown Revitalization

by Heidi Winston, RE/MAX Lifetime Achievement Recipie

Hey everyone!

I went to school in Seattle, WA and lived there for many years after. It is because I have seen what revitalization efforts can do to transform a city, or its neighborhoods, that I am so enthusiastic about what is happening in Downtown Las Vegas. Whether your interests lie in the opportunity to try new restaurants and lounges, or enjoy the latest summer blockbuster in a new theater, or start your own idea for a new business at an incubator, Downtown is teaming with opportunities for you to check out!

Now most of us are already aware of the Container Park and other Downtown Projects (DTP) sponsored in part by Tony Hsieh of Zappo's fame, and developer Todd Kessler - Thank you Tony and Todd! - so this blog is going to cover even newer projects that are complete, in process, or on the drawing board for the Downtown area.

 

Take Derek and Greg Stevens plans to raze the properties they purchased over the last few years and replace them with a "to-be-announced" project on the site of what is currently, Mermaids, the Las Vegas Club and Glitter Gulch.

The City of Las Vegas continues to expand it parks and recreation services with new and expanded "Green Spaces" in and around the Downtown Corridor. Much of this information was shared at the recent "Livin in The City" event sponsored by the City and the Urban Land Institute (ULI) - Nevada.

Another venue that opened about 6 months ago is the Eclipse Theater. Now theaters with food and adult beverage service is nothing new, but not allowing youngsters in for showings that start after 6:00 PM is. Now I am a mom, but in the summer my daughter does leave town to spend time with family. While away, my husband and I can enjoy a "non-animated film, with no G's in the rating AND an adult beverage", all while in the company of only 40 or so other adults.

 


My point is this, like all great cities Las Vegas continues to adapt to the changing times and needs of not only it's visitors, but it's residents. I for one am thrilled to see what is taking place in our city and the investment in not only services, but in infrastructure and economic diversity as well, and I hope you get out and enjoy some of it as well! 

Thanks for reading and sharing!

Heidi

Real Estate is Heating Up in Las Vegas!

by Heidi Winston, RE/MAX Lifetime Achievement Award

Hello Everyone!

The temperatures and the Real Estate market are both heating up in Las Vegas this Summer! If you believe it is time to put your home on the market, consider the "7 Essential Steps" I share here, and give me a call to discuss a strategy that will work for you!

Best regards, and thank you for sharing!

Heidi

 

Knowing and using these 7 essential, yet simple steps is crucial to achieving the best deal possible - whether you decide to sell your home yourself or hire a professional real estate agent to help you.

Take a look at the seven-step system I have outlined in this blog. Then, if this new approach to marketing your home makes sense and you want to learn more, I'll show you how to skillfully and specifically apply each of these critical steps to get your home sold for the most money in the shortest amount of time!

Step 1 - Understanding the "Total Market" concept of positioning your home to attract the greatest number of buyers.

Step 2 - Using the "Total Market" concept allows you more accurately set an appropriate listing price for your home.

Step 3 - Pricing Your Home to Appear "lower than" market value, yet actually asking for "more than" market value, This one crucial step will get buyers and agents flocking to your door!

 

Step 4 - Properly advertise and market your home by embracing and using new technologies. This includes the proper use of websites such as Zillow and Facebook.

Step 5 - "Detailing" your home for sale. Your goal is to set your home apart from every other home on the market - instantly attracting buyers to your home.

Step 6 -  Learn how to qualify buyers and negotiate offers. Since we are talking about your money here, the risks of not knowing how to properly qualify and negotiate are too great to ignore or leave to chance!

Step 7 - Understanding and /or  helping the buyer obtain financing, removing contingencies, and closing the sale. You need a strategy to avoid and eliminate potential problems in escrow, which can undermine your sale and create liability on your part.

The better you understand and systematically apply these seven steps, the better the results you will get. Better results means more money, in less time,  and with the least amount of hassle possible, and ultimately, isn't this what you want?

Summerlin Homes For Sale!

by Heidi Winston, RE/MAX Lifetime Achievement Recipie

In this week's blog, I am sharing the Search of The Month and some information on the master planned community of Summerlin. Click the link to see Current Listings in Summerlin between $300,000 and $600,000 available right now, and read on to learn more about the community, whether you are interested in a resale home, or new construction.

Summerlin is an award-winning Master-Planned development in Clark County, Nevada and offers a living experience unique in the world. Summerlin occupies 22,500 acres of the Mojave Desert and is situated in the doorway of the Red Rock National Conservation Area. It is 18 miles from the Las Vegas Strip, and features convenience to shopping, golfing, dining and other recreation and cultural amenities.

The area was originally purchased by Howard Hughes in the 1950s, through a number of land exchanges with the BLM in order to protect sensitive sites. It has become a haven of natural environment-friendly living adjoining buffer-zone land protecting Red Rock Canyon in the National Stewardship program.

These exchanges resulted in the creation of a 1,200-acre Clark County trails park, including a 13-mile scenic drive, miles of hiking trails, rock climbing, horseback riding, mountain biking, road biking, picnic areas, nature observing and visitor center in and around Red Rock Canyon Conservation Area, available for residents and public alike.

The highly sought-after Summerlin master planned community is within the city of Las Vegas and unincorporated Clark County. It is the largest master-planned community in the Las Vegas Valley, ranked #6 nationally, and in 2014 was named by Money magazine as one of America’s “Best Places to Live”.

The Summerlin community contains residential, commercial, recreational, educational, medical, and cultural developments, as well as open areas including hiking and biking trails. Since the 1980s the community has been carefully developed and currently contains a dozen-plus medical and cultural facilities, houses of worship, shopping centers and business parks; it has 26 public and private schools, ready access to 5 universities; it also has 9 golf courses, two of which are Nevada’s only Tournament Players Clubs. It has three resort hotels and world-class recreational facilities. The population is currently approximately 100,000, up from 59,000 in 2000.

The development of the Summerlin community is on-going with nineteen of thirty-one planned community areas either completed or near completion, and is divided into three areas, North, South and West, surrounding Summerlin Centre, the core urban and downtown area. Each division is managed by Master Associations and Homeowners’ associations. It also contains two age-restricted communities, Sun City and Sienna, which have their own associations. It offers fine and varied architectural styles in condos, townhomes and luxury homes.

Summerlin contains 150 miles of award winning trails connecting all the subdivisions of the development, as well as 150 neighborhood parks with community centers, swimming pools and cultural areas. Life in Summerlin embodies high desert living at its best, and imparts the feeling of perpetual vacation in one of the country’s most beautiful environmentally friendly locations. Summerlin is definitely a world unto itself, but with convenient access to all that Las Vegas has to offer.

Travel Doesn't Have to Hurt Oral Health!

by Heidi Winston, RE/MAX Lifetime Achievement Awardee

Hey everyone! Are you ready for Summer?

With the "Holiday Weekends" and Summer season upon us, we reached out to our family dentist for some suggestions on how to make sure we keep up our dental hygiene while traveling. Since Taylor just got her braces off, we wanted to make sure we protected that investment! Following is the ideas that Dr. Polley and his office sent, and I thought they would be great to share with you.

 

Happy reading, and thanks for sharing! - Heidi

 

 

 

 

Ah, Holiday Weekends and Summer Vacation. With the kids out of school and the roads clear, these are the best times to get out of town. Whether you decide to take a plane or hit the road in your family-mobile, travel is a great experience for your family.But it can also be bad for your oral health. Here are some tips to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy when you travel.

Get a Checkup before You Go

Regular dental checkups give us the opportunity to identify dental problems before you notice them. This not only keeps your dental costs down, it can help avoid unpleasant symptoms of dental disease, like a foul taste in your mouth, broken teeth, or discomfort. If you’re overdue for a checkup, make sure you schedule one before you go on a trip. That way, you won’t experience any ill effects while traveling. You don’t want to spend your vacation in pain--or in a dentist’s waiting room!

​Bring All the Tools You Need

When you’re packing, don’t forget to include all the tools you need to keep your teeth clean on your vacation, including toothbrushes, toothpaste, and, yes, dental floss. Just because you’re taking a vacation from home doesn’t mean you can take a vacation from flossing. You know that oral bacteria aren’t going to be taking a break! Travel size packages for everything and covers for toothbrushes make it easy to pack everything without taking up a lot of space. Just remember to air out your toothbrushes every day--that helps keep them clean.

 

 

 

 

Make Time for Tooth brushing

As we said, you can’t take a vacation from oral care. Just bringing along the tools doesn’t help if you’re not making time to care for your teeth. Make tooth brushing a priority before everyone settles in for bed at night. If kids fall asleep because of all the exhausting full days, they can maybe skip once in awhile, but don’t let it happen too often! ​Mom and Dad, this goes for you, too! Even if you were out a little later than usual, try to get your teeth brushed and flossed every night before bed.

 

 

​Don’t Eat with Abandon

The biggest danger to your oral health is probably the way our diets change when we go on vacation. When we travel, we’re more likely to eat more sweets and spend more time sipping from acidic and sugary drinks. This is especially a problem on road trips, where a cola might seem like the perfect pick-me-up on those endless afternoons on the highway. You can protect your teeth by choosing water and other less acidic options. If you need a caffeine bump on the road, get a cup of coffee or tea--without sugar. And remember to take adequate breaks and pass over the wheel sometimes--a car accident won’t do anything good for your teeth!

Smile for the Camera!

Now that you’ve done the work of taking care of your teeth while traveling, it’s time to reap the reward! Show off those pearly whites in your pictures so that everyone will be jealous of your vacation--and your smile!
