Nevada says No Drought Conditions in Mesquite

by Mesquite Realty on June 20, 2015

We don’t have to remind you how important water is especially in the desert. We also don’t need to remind you that most of the western US has been in a drought for over 10 years. Water is a very often addressed topic that comes up when discussing Mesquite and Homes in Mesquite. This is where the good new comes in… Nevada says no drought conditions in Mesquite NV or in any of the Virgin River Basin. This came as part of a reported by  Jason King, Nevada State engineer.

In 2015 the residents of  Mesquite enjoyed a long beautiful spring with more than average rain storms dropping rain in various parts of the Virgin River Basin. According to MesquiteWeather.com Mesquite has had 3.74 inches of rain this year.  Which is not far from our average rainfall of 5.7 inches per year.

 

We are grateful for the rain we receive and keep hoping and praying more will come to the West.

Mesquite is #4 on 5 Safest Cities in Nevada

by Mesquite Realty on March 5, 2015

The SafeWise Report Announces the 5 Safest Cities in Nevada

The SafeWise Report released its “5 Safest Cities in Nevada” report. To compile this report, SafeWise used the most recent FBI crime data from 2012 to analyze and rank these cities, which all have a minimum population of 5,000 people.

We look at crimes from part 1 of the FBI Unified Crime Report (UCR) reported crime data, which focuses on violent crimes (aggravated assault, forcible rape, murder, and robbery) as well as property crimes (arson, burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft). From there, we calculate the chances of these crimes happening out of a thousand in order to level the playing field for cities of varying populations. From all the cities in Nevada, we narrowed the list down to 5 and assigned rankings according to data provided by the FBI’s UCR report.

Mesquite on the RISE

by Mesquite Realty on February 13, 2015

DSC_0124

With much talk of Real Estate in the news… I can tell you that in Mesquite NV things are on the move. This time of year we are in full swing. The weather could not be nicer. We have had a few days of record high temperatures which have pushed up in to the low to mid 70’s. New Homes are selling quickly. Communities like StoneHaven, Sun City Mesquite, Bella Horizon, Royal Vistas, and Spyglass (to name a few) are building homes at a pace we have not seen since 2007.

This new growth is good for Mesquite. Mesquite has infrastructure sufficient for about 50,000 people yet our population is closer to 20,000. Most all new homes are going to the North side of I-15. Most all are single family homes 1400-2300 sqf.ft. We are seeing a mixed bag when it comes to buyers purchasing in our area. We have retired people, we have buy now and retire later people, we have second home people (some are snow birds coming from colder to Mesquite in the winter months).  We have a high number of people that pay cash for homes but many other that choose to keep the cash and opt to finance due to historically low interest rates.

Building a New Home???

by Mesquite Realty on August 29, 2014

The Mesquite market is coming back rapidly after the housing bubble popped a few years ago. It’s great to see that we are having more new construction builds. There are several communities that are constantly building new home all over Mesquite. Most people know of Sun City that is being built by Del Webb, which is by far the largest development in all of Mesquite, but other areas are also building such as the development of Stone Haven on the North side of I-15 being built by Advanced Construction. Homes in this area start just over $200,000 for a three bedroom two bath home 1,455 sqft that comes furnished down to the dishes. or you can go with the option of a third car garage for $213,900.  These homes in Stone haven have made the building process so much easier than most. The houses comes standard with granite counter tops, three-tone paint, walk-in master shower, covered patio with a built-in grill, and also the front and back yards are fully landscaped.  Some of the homes are used as vacation rentals and can be rented out for $175 – $200 a night with a four night minimum; $1,000 a week; or $2,400 a month. DSC_0053 [click to continue…]
