Las Vegas Real Estate Update – January 2017

lasvegas2017-2Welcome to 2017 and the Political Challenges Ahead!

First, I want to reach out and thank Congressman Joe Heck for all of the support he has provided our REALTOR community.  Then I want to congratulate Senator Catherine Cortez Masto on being seated in the Senate as the first Latina Senator!  Now it’s time to begin reviewing Bill Draft Requests (BDRs) as we prepare for the 79th session of the Nevada Legislature that opens next month! Which bills from the 2015 Session will be revisited in one fashion or another?

One thought on “Las Vegas Real Estate Update – January 2017

  1. it is great to find an article that provide metrics to reinforce their positions that are promoted. The ability to predict the ebbs and flow of the real estate market is as difficult as predicting the stock market. However, those who utilize statistics/metrics to do so versus so called experience or gut instinct are the ones that I would put my money on.

    Great article.
