Las Vegas real estate market in the news

The media has actually been reporting some good news about the real estate market, at least in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas real estate market has been quietly making a comeback over the last six months. Even though homes are still sliding into foreclosure, home sales are up and gainning ground. Here is a short video report by Jane Wells on the Las Vegas homes market.

OJ on trial

If you have been watching TV at all, odds are you have probably watched at least a small portion of the new OJ trial. Like all sequels, it is showing elements of the first show. Thankfully this trial hasn't turned into a huge circus like the first one. However, like the first trial, the defendant's attorney is focusing on some of the police's comments. Will this influence the jury as it did in the first trial? Maybe.

I wonder if we'll see the same reactions in Las Vegas as they had in California. Of course, this being Las Vegas, there is betting going on about the outcome of the trial. Anyone know the odds on a conviction?

Rental scam on Craig's List

These types of scams are hardly new. Scammers will 'rent' vacant homes to unsuspecting victims. Earlier this year, an alert was sent out to local Realtors to beware of rental scams.

Metro has arrested two individuals who allegedly rented a vacant home to an unsuspecting woman. One of the scammers claimed to be a real estate broker. The scam came to light when an absentee owner from California found his Las Vegas home occupied by a woman and her two kids. The woman had answered an ad placed on Craig's list several months ago. She met a woman named Melinda Hertz, signed a rental contract and paid the rent in cash.

The police set up a sting operation to catch the criminals. On Monday, the woman arranged to meet at a restaurant to pay rent. Afterwards, police investigators swooped in and arrested 26 year old Melissa Cowan and Emilio Gonzales, 53. Both individuals are facing criminal charges of conspiracy, burglary and obtaining money under false pretenses.
