An ‘Almost’ Slow Real Estate News Week for Henderson Readers

If, as the saying goes, “”no news is good news,” last week was almost a good week for U.S. real estate. Henderson real estate watchers like me found no hint of the kind of sweeping changes that can alter residential real estate patterns for buyers and sellers. Possibly because of the looming election, little space [...]

When you go in for your annual physical, you’re hoping for a sunny prognosis. Realtor® magazine isn’t a medical journal, but it does have a feature called “Market Pulse.” It reports on the patient’s vital signs (if you imagine the patient being the nation’s housing market).

Henderson Real Estate News Can’t Top These Items

Whenever a month’s Henderson real estate activity ends on a Friday, the number-gatherers close up shop knowing there will be a longer than usual lapse until they can be sure of the Henderson real estate activity statistics.

House Hunting in Henderson Can Offer Surprises

  When you go house hunting in Henderson, you’re likely to share a lot of the same basic assumptions that most everybody does. Whether you have a lengthy list of hard-and-fast requirements or are in more of a “just seeing what’s out there” mindset, you’re probably assuming that you’ll “know it when you see it.” [...]

Nationwide, Real Estate Prices Stabilize as Sales Climb

If you try to predict what Henderson real estate activity is likely to be based on only our local activity, you soon find what causes statisticians to turn up their noses: the sample size is simply too small to project reliable trends.

Henderson Real Estate Investors Tune in to AIG Strategy

A Listing Flick Henderson Sellers Can Google (and Giggle Over)

      The days of boring slideshow type “virtual tours” are disappearing fast. Today’s Henderson listings can include actual virtual walk-through videos, breathtaking aerial drone shots, and sweeping panoramic 360-degree views. Now it appears there can even be the possibility of James Bond-style suspense. That’s right—Double-O Seven himself (almost). I offer an example that’s [...]

Biggest House In The World Is A Sizable Commute From Henderson

     Exactly what makes a house “big”? That’s a judgment call, for sure.      In Henderson, houses that are 4,000 square feet or larger would certainly be considered “big,” “spacious,” “ample,” “accommodating,” etc. Most families can get along quite nicely with the U.S. average of 2,600—so even Henderson houses with 3,000 square feet can be [...]

All Connected: Mortgage Interest Rates & Breaking News

One way or another, it’s all connected. Last week ended with what some observers justifiably called a “shocking” development—one that could impact Henderson’s home buyers and sellers measurably—at least in the short run. It came with the release of the employment statistics from the Department of Labor. They weren’t good numbers. But the surprisingly weak [...]
