After fighting the short sale / foreclosure market for wayyy too long, I decided to purchase a small new home in Henderson 2 yrs ago for $148,000. The whole process was virtually stress free. Closed in like 2 wks! I've been happy as a resident. The public schools and aesthetics of "old Henderson" that one has to drive through-to get to the new & beautiful does give me cause for concern. So much so, I've been contemplating selling & buying elsewhere in LV. (Currently zoned for Brown / Basic HS)??? Sorry to jump in on your thread, but new to this process. I'm especially curious about this discussion because an exact lot / model size in my same community recently sold for $180,000?!? I keep hearing there are "no homes available". Which is driving the prices up. Does that mean another bubble will burst and prices will drop again? A realtor friend suggested "I sell while I have a very good chance of making a profit"??? Hope this makes sense! Thank you!

I briefly worked for a government agency. I know exactly what you're talking about. It's sad really. But this happens in other countries too not just the US. Something about having guaranteed money coming in (from our tax dollars) turns hard working people into lumps of lard.

I kid you not...I had a co-worker one cubicle over who would play solitaire for half his working hours everyday. And this was a PHD level researcher.

I herded a crew of Phds and similar for some years. Playing solitaire or other such behavior means very little. Some would work 100 hour weeks. Others would show up at odd hours and then vanish again. You generally did not value them on meeting some arbitrary schedule but on their production of whatever it is you are interested in. There is Phd work that requires adherence to a schedule. But much does not.

I was at Broadacres Marketplace today and the place was a ghost town, apparently the recovery has not trickled that far down yet.

All this talk about places in Vegas hiring has convinced me to expand my job search to include Las Vegas. Hopefully it pans out.
