RealTrends is a company that specializes in real estate communications and consulting. RealTrends is a leading source of real estate trends and analysis. Recently partnering with Trulia, RealTrends is one of the best places to retrieve real estate statistics and information.
The Ballen Group has been with Keller Williams Realty Las Vegas since 2010 and has been able to experience great growth during their time at Keller Williams. Last month they were presented with the “Top Producing Team” award for their Las Vegas Market Center for the month of June.
The Ballen Group is currently very busy, with more than 7,000 homes for sale in Las Vegas, many Las Vegas residents are looking to buy a Las Vegas home. Sellers are also looking to get their homes sold as prices are projected to decline within the next 6 months.
The Ballen Group’s Las Vegas real estate agents do much more than simply take their clients on a tour of houses and condos. They can help clients see the possibilities in a home, identify potential long-term value, and point out impending issues that could impact the resale value of a home.
The Las Vegas real estate agents at The Ballen Group can provide Las Vegas real estate agents with invaluable information about current Las Vegas home values. This includes how long a house has been on the market, current activity within the local market, and figures regarding comparable homes that have sold nearby. All of this information is crucial when determining what their clients should offer for a home.
According to the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors, about 70% of homes currently on the market in Las Vegas are considered traditional sales. This simply means a deal is made between a seller and buyer. This is usually the easiest way to purchase a home.
A short sale is a property that sells for less than the current balance of the mortgage. This usually occurs when the owners are unable to meet their payment obligations, but want to avoid foreclosure. If a person makes an offer on a short sale, the current owners may accept it, just like in a traditional sale. However, the lender must agree to the purchase price before the sale can be finalized. A Las Vegas short sales offers the opportunity for a good deal, but it is not unusual for it to take months before an agreement is reached.
A foreclosed home has been taken back by the bank that holds the existing mortgage when the owner is unable to make the payments. It is not unusual for these homes to be sold for substantially less than they are worth. However, this doesn’t mean they are always a good deal. When a Las Vegas resident purchases a foreclosure, they accept responsibility for any liens or judgments against it. The lender is not required to make the buyer aware of these obligations before the sale is closed. As a result, the buyer may be served with a notice of a lien months, or even years, after they purchased it.
The Ballen Group at Keller Williams Realty Las Vegas is an award winning team which was started by Richard and Lori Ballen. The Ballens became Las Vegas real estate agents in 2006 and 2007. Within their first year they were the top producing Las Vegas real estate agents on their Coldwell Banker team.
In 2010 they moved to Keller Williams Realty Las Vegas to build their team. It was Lori’s plan to build her company off web leads which she acquires through what is known as The Ballen Method. The Ballen Method is Lori’s online marketing system which she developed while building her different companies. The Ballen Method has been sold to hundreds of people and Richard and Lori Ballen have traveled to many different states teaching The Ballen Method Live class.
Richard and Lori Ballen were very proud of their team when they were notified of their team being a Top Nevada Team and that The Ballen Group is in the top .01% of all realtors nationwide. Richard and Lori Ballen are no longer involved in the day to day activities of The Ballen Group. They currently live in Summerlin with their family.
