With 5,000 people moving here each month, somebody had to spill the beans!

October 17, 2008

  1. During the weekend, Melissa, Neil, Sarah and I checked out a some model homes in several neighborhoods throughout the Las Vegas Valley.  In two neighborhoods, they indicated that they were almost sold out. . .only six or so homes left.  Good news, right?

    Well, not exactly.

    After asking a bit more, the builder simply decided to stop building (for now).  Depending on the neighborhood, there were 20-40 empty lots that were going to stay empty until the economy recovers.  I would guess those folks living in those neighborhoods aren’t terribly happy.

  2. Saw online a house in our area that was being foreclosed.  The price was AMAZING.  In reviewing the photos of the interior of the house, I saw that all the cabinetry in the kitchen were missing.  I emailed the Realtor:

    ME: What happened to all the kitchen cabinets in this house?

    REALTOR: The kitchen cabinets were all missing when we first gained access to the property upon our assignment from the bank.  So as far as we know they were stolen previous to that.  We don’t know by who.

Huh?!?  Who steals the cabinets out of a house?!?  For the love of god, if you can’t afford the house, you don’t get to keep the cabinets as a parting gift.

As always, Melissa and I are looking forward to another great time with our listeners!

See you on Saturday!
