The Las Vegas Market Is Hot, In Case You Didn't Know

Many people purchased homes in Las Vegas during the down turn for pennies on the dollar. Some may have even bought sight unseen and still live in other states. If you are an investor or property owner living out of state now may be a great time to sell.

That will help you get the home sold with fewer hassles and requests from the buyer. You'll likely pay between $300 and $500 for an inspection, but it's well worth the money.

It's worth the money to have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that no one else has the keys to your home. Changing the locks can be a DIY project, or you can call in a locksmith for a little extra money.

Steam clean the carpets
