Congresswoman Berkley News Flash

I Just received an e-mail from my Congressional Representative that I wanted to share:

Dear Paul,

    I am extremely pleased to announce that Nevada will receive an additional $57 million in assistance under the federal "Hardest Hit" fund, which targets help to states most affected by the foreclosure crisis and helps out-of-work Nevadans facing foreclosure remain in their homes.   

    When families lose their homes and our neighbors and loved ones can't find work, the whole community suffers.  I am fighting hard to deliver all the help I can to Nevadans caught in the middle of this economic crisis.  The "Hardest Hit" fund is a lifeline for struggling families at home in Las Vegas and across the country, having now provided…

Summerlin Real EstateIf I did not pay close attention to what is going on with Summerlin Real Estate and really cared...

Discounts for Las Vegas Deals

Sometimes when there is so much to do in Las Vegas, you can't make up your mind on what to do. I was recently reminded of something to do in Las Vegas and offered 1/2 off to do it with a recent Groupon deal.

Groupon is a service that businesses can use to announce specials and discounts. People signed up under Groupon are notified of the deal being offered through e-mail and can then pre-pay for the deal through the service if they want it. You pay for it and wah lah -- you get a Groupon Coupon.

Not a bad deal and hey... it's free to sign up to be notified of Las Vegas businesses looking for your business. You can get some pretty good deals from half off for food & beverage, activities and adventures in and around Las Vegas.…

Read this headline and the first paragraph from today's article in the Las Vegas Sun:

Some home prices come up as ZIPs with largest declines see rebound - Las Vegas Sun - Buck Wargo - 09/14/2010

"In some parts of the Las Vegas Valley, home prices have recently gone up by double digits. Year-over-year double-digit increases in home prices were reported for 15 of 57 ZIP codes in the second quarter of 2010."

Sounds like a statement that Las Vegas home prices in certain areas are going back up to me. For somebody that does not understand what is being measured (which is very vague in the article) they would think that there are some hot little zip codes in Las Vegas where prices are going up and…
