Summerlin attracting more Commercial Development

The office market in the Las Vegas Valley has been marching forward on the path to recovery after the Great Recession. The master-plan community of Summerlin, known for its award winning home development and Downtown Summerlin, is expanding the development of office space buildings due to a great demand.

The Howard Hughes Corp. expects to complete the six-story Class A office building in Downtown Summerlin this fall.  They already have many spaces preleased according to Summerlin president Kevin Orrock.  This is the second office building in the open air mall with many types of tenants like attorney offices, brokers and gaming technology companies.

Orrock stated “I think it gets down to what we’ve done here in Summerlin.  We’re providing an urban core.  We’re providing a place where people want to live, work and play- plus the sports venues that are here or will be here.”

A couple of miles away from Downtown Summerlin, the Howard Hughes Corp is almost finished with another office development for Aristocrat Technologies, an Australian slot machine maker.

The commercial submarket in Summerlin has seen less vacancy averages than other commercial markets in Las Vegas.  A senior director at Cushman & Wakefield said that Summerlin is the most desirable location for commercial consumers in the valley.  He also said that many employers are considering millennials predominantly when making decisions on the location of their offices.

Try Alternative Art rather than Traditional Artwork in your Home

Many people move into their home and do not have traditional pieces of art – no problem. These days you can improvise and show your own style and innovation.

The following is a good guide and tips for alternative art:

1- Use black and white photographs in a matte and a frame.

2- Frame mixed media elements such as paper.

3- Unusual or interesting prints or images can make a statement on your wall.

4- Mirrors can be used in small spaces. They can be a low-cost way to fill space.

5- Oversized prints that are bold make a dramatic statement.

6- Choose a color palate for certain spaces to complement each other – also don’t use too many pieces together.

7- Hang your artwork at eye level.

8- Keep your personal photos in one place – don’t mix them in with other artwork.

9- Go to second-hand stores, garage sales or home décor stores to find pieces of art you like and it won’t cost you a fortune.

10- If you travel you might want to pick-up a poster from that place and frame it. Not only will you have another piece of art – you will have a memento of your trip.

Your home is a living environment, so don’t be afraid of changing your artwork as you live in it and your taste changes.

Tax Lien Relief – This Information Could Help

What is a tax lien? It is a lien imposed by law upon a property to secure the payment of taxes owed. A tax lien may be imposed for delinquent taxes owed on real property, personal property, or as a result of failure to pay income taxes or other taxes.

Now, this credit tip isn’t for the likes of Wesley Snipes or Willie Nelson who have had millions owed and paid in tax liens; but for clients who have federal tax liens under 25K.

You might call it a loophole or a policy that’s rarely mentioned – there is an IRS procedure that will remove these federal tax liens from a credit report. If the federal tax lien is unpaid, yet still under 25K, all you need to do is to make three payments on an agreed upon payment plan and the lien can once again be removed by submitting the proper paperwork.

A tax lien can be the most terrible item to appear on your credit report. It’s considered very negative and can cause your credit scores to drop significantly. Even worse, under federal law, unpaid tax liens can remain on credit reports indefinitely, though in practice credit bureaus may remove them after a decade or so. (Once paid and released, a tax lien must be removed seven years from the date it was filed.)

Do you think you might have any liens? These are three ways to find out:

1 -Search the county recorder, clerk, or assessor’s office online. All you need is the name of the property owner or its address. …

2 -Visit the county recorder, clerk, or assessor’s office in person. …

3 -Contact me and I will reach out to my friends at a title company.

This is just one example how a good realtor and loan officer can help you. I have great relationships with all the people that help my clients with everything from loans to help getting settled in your new home.

The Summerlin Council Patriotic Parade – Only 1 Week Away

It’s really hard to believe that July 4th is only one week away – this year has just flown by. My family and I love the Summerlin Patriotic Parade so much. It has become a tradition for us to get up early on the 4th of July and find a perfect spot up front on the parade route to set up our little shade structure. In fact, a few times Nicole & Emma have gotten up even earlier to run the Firecracker 5K run (this year it is the evening before at 7:00 pm for some reason). I don’t run ☺

We always have a great time and besides watching a great parade we get to meet other families that are as excited as we are to see the pageantry float by.

This year is very special as the Summerlin parade celebrates its 20th year. There are 70 bands, balloons and floats – the parade gets better every year with additions to the festivities. This year there will be a float for the Las Vegas Golden Knights to show how beloved they are in the community.

The parade travels along flag-lined streets from Hillpointe Road and Hills Center, then south on Hills Center Drive concluding on Trailwood Drive at the entrance of the Trails Village Shopping Center. Arrive early to get a prime viewing area along the route.

You get to see neighbors wrangling the big balloons and marching bands keeping in time. Some of the floats are aimed at young children with their favorite stories as the theme of these floats.

The feeling you get watching everyone taking great pride in our country and our city is pure joy and how proud we all are to be in this incredible country. There is nothing quite like it. For parade details, just go to: http://summerlink.com/patriotic-parade

I want to wish everyone a happy and safe 4th of July. And please be careful if handling fireworks. The air is extra dry and you can easily start a fire, or get hurt. Maybe you just want to let the professionals handle it and watch the fireworks at Red Rock Casino or at Green Valley Ranch Hotel?

Inspiration for Your Home Interior Decoration

Are you moving into a new home or updating your existing one and looking for ideas on home furnishings? Inspiration for décor can come from a variety of sources like nature, looking at home magazines, various homes you visit, or a designer showcase home.

We often ignore what is right in front of us in our everyday life. The colors around you in nature like a flower or different trees can inspire wall colors or theme of a room. You also visit furniture stores and look at the vignettes on display. This can help you decide if you want your home to be modern, contemporary, transitional or traditional. When you visit friends homes look around there may be a design aspect you like, an arrangement of furniture or a grouping of artwork.

Recently over 60 designers gathered in New York’s Metropolitan Pavilion for the annual Design on a Dime event sponsored by Housing Works. Everything was for sale and the proceeds benefit those affected by homelessness, HIV and AIDS. In Las Vegas there are show houses with rooms created by local interior designers. To find out where and when contact the World Market Center https://www.wmclv.com/

Inspiration is not always the latest objects – while new items may be appealing there are many vintage looks that you can mix with contemporary looks to give you a warm eclectic feeling in your home.

Keep your camera ready when you walk into a hotel or restaurant – if you see something you really like snap a picture of it. If you see it in a retail store it is most likely available to purchase it. And remember you don’t have to redo everything at once especially large pieces of furniture – buy a sofa, live with it and then add the pieces to compliment it.

Are you one of those people (like me) who find inspiration, but then you feel like you don’t know how to complete the concept? Consider hiring an interior designer just as a consultant – someone who just guides you, instead of designing the whole thing. It’s really pretty affordable. I actually work with 2 whose information I would be happy to share with you. Just call or email me.

CapRock Partners from California Invest in Las Vegas

 

CapRock Partners, an industrial real estate firm from Newport Beach California has just acquired about 300,000 square feet of multi-tenant industrial space in the western and southwestern part of the Las Vegas Valley.

Taylor Arnett, vice president of acquisitions at CapRock, stated “An estimated 6 million square feet of industrial space is set to come on-line in 2018 and similar figures for 2019, with more than 90 percent of those projects estimated to be big box distribution space.”

CapRock owns and invests in multi-tenant industrial properties with smaller tenants and they see this type of property as hard to find in Las Vegas at the moment. A good reason for them to invest in the Las Vegas area, and they are looking at other sites to develop.

Brian Gordon, principal at Applied Analysis, agreed that most of the industrial ventures in Las Vegas are aimed at larger tenants. He believes that multi-tenant buildings can be a main component in the industrial market. With Las Vegas growing as fast as it is, having industrial space for smaller tenants can only be seen as a huge plus for companies that would like to move to our great city.
