Does it hurt when you try to think? Is that why you don't?

Just another asinine, uninformed opinion from someone who probably hasn't spent five minutes in Summerlin or talked with people who actually live there.

I've found exactly the opposite to be true. Is it more expensive to live in Summerlin? Yes. Is it worth paying the premium to live there? In my opinion, yes.

Aren't the "two large dogs" going to be a detriment to finding a house to rent, just as much as an apartment? Some people are willing to accommodate smaller pets, but I wouldn't be too thrilled about renting to someone with any, let alone large, animals. No offense to dog lovers, but ...

Neither mod cut:. Read a newspaper from time to time and you will see that 16 out of 20 zip codes, homes in foreclosure are in Las Vegas. Also people do not have the disposable income to spend in Vegas so layoffs occur and people cannot afford their mortgage, foreclosure, short sales and walk aways lead to price decreases. mod cut:

While it is certainly possible that home prices will fall further, real estate statistics indicate that the LV market has sort of stabilized. Everything you've written in your post has been true for the last year and yet prices are virtually unchanged from last August. Here is a chart that Olecapt prepared a couple of weeks ago that will give you a better visual picture of how the market has performed since last year:

I disagree with your use of personal attacks, but I do agree with your premise. As the economy is collapsing, it will drive home prices way down. Just wait until the UN ends the dollar as the worlds reserve currency. When that finally happens all the houses here will be worth literally nothing.

Every article and chart i have come across on the current LV real-estate market shows that the market has stabilized and on its way to a slow rebound. That is why I made the comment on your method of market speculation. The comment was a joke at best and not to be taken literally . If I did offend you then I offer my sincere apologies.

Both of you get over with your insecurities and you will enjoy Summerlin and the surrounding areas. I love Summerlin, Red Rock Resort, Red Rock Canyon and pretty much this side of Vegas.
