Just a couple of stats you might want to know or have some interest.

1) Las Vegas (specifically 89138 Zip code) was the 2nd most searched for on Realtor.com for 2014.  http://realtormag.realtor.org/daily-news/2014/12/24/top-10-most-searched-neighborhoods-in-2014

2) Nevada ranks #2 in the US for Mortgage loan fraud.  This is actually a 2013 stat as the rankings come out almost 12 months late, but it is significant.  Clients constantly wonder why it is so hard to get a loan now days... maybe on top of the loan guidelines tightening, getting a loan in NV might come under extra scrutiny from an Underwriter at times?
