Sorry - but you are the poster child for landlord's that complain about tenants that destroy property values, IMO.
They are cheap veneer, over MDF. I wouldn't paint over hard wood. Are you crazy? And they rip them out all the time. These also have water damage. Take me to court? Bwahaha. First of all, the maintenance people here love me. Second, well, I will keep that one to myself. Just wait for the before and after pictures and give me an honest opinion about " damages "

Default Gold

Hey NLV gal,

The cabinets are made of gold, as is the rest of the place. How dare you

Seriously, though, don't do it. It is their property and they can be as delusional and self righteous as they like about it. OTOH, they'll probably find some other reason to keep your deposit. Nah, it's not worth it.

Just got a call from the PM. Since I am still feeling irrational on the subject, I let it go to message. I was delighted to hear he was out of town and had a good Thanksgiving and that he got my husband's message and that everything's great and that we don't have to do anything and that's great and we're just all around great.

What I heard was I put a gun to your head and raised your rent $200 with no added value because the owner heard of some other AH who was asking for that and you agreed to pay it because it's the holidays and exhausted because the past year probably was the worst year of my life.

As he said, he did give me an extra two weeks notice - after keeping me hanging for 4 1/2 months after the lease was up wondering what was happening. Told me everything was fine, go ahead and make that expensive and hard to move purchase. And then suddenly decides now. He's a great guy and everything's great.

I hope your adventures in renting turn out better than mine.

Cheers (no, too early for a drink.)

It's never too early for a drink in Vegas! Cheers! I don't give a fig about my deposit, and they can.. have nice day. I'm not going to look at MDF for thirteen months. This joint will be a model home. I don't have a lot of time left on this planet, and every space I walk into in this domicile will be pleasing to the senses.

You should come over when it's done. I will post pictures for everyone.

Other than improving the joint, I pay my rent on time, have no pets or kids, and treat everyone with kindness and decency. I am willing to pay for what I do. Taking me to court is a funny idea though. Good luck with that.

I did not mean to steal your thread, LVNYC, and I hope this ridiculousness ends up with you owning a beautiful and peaceful home. Hang on!

Talking Bold

I'd love to see it. Message me when mission accomplished (or sooner)

Edit:
Starting today to pare down our stuff to monk level. Will wait a while until I hire RE agent. After taking care of my mother day and night for seven years, getting both my knees replaced (old accident), and cataracts removed (old me), my mother finally passing away while I was talking to her, sitting next to the bed, more health problems because I had neglected my own health (my turn in the barrel), echh.

Not very organized at this point. Well, I am going to start my mission - getting the hell out of here.

Sorry to hear that OP. I hope you get better. If you want information on comparables in your neighborhood whenever you decide to move I'd be happy to look them up for you so you can negotiate from a stronger position. Happy holidays.

Utterly different. No where near the wild speculation or the vast number of new homes. In fact the price rise is probably more driven today by a scarcity of housing not an excess.

Anything is possible but it is different. Inflation is higher than it was in mid 2006 so even if the price of housing reaches that level again, it's not the same amount after adjustment for that inflation. Also more of the market has also been outright purchased now so it's not like they will be repoed by a bank. We have a good percentage of buyers buying all cash so it seems Vegas is still a destination for people wanting to retire a few years early. Also banks will not allow what happened in 2006 to repeat, they have learned from that time. They'd rather restructure delinquent mortgages than flood the market and sell a house and take a bath for 50%+ of the loan amount. For the delinquent mortgages that are just serviceable, they'll release them slowly instead of flooding their own market.

I agree with this statement. I keep hearing how the prices are climbing and climbing. Unfortunately, I am not in a position to buy anything right now. I should be completely debt free (excluding a house in Salt Lake City) in about 11 months. Then start packing away cash to hopefully build a building somewhere with living quarters on one end.
