Amid Real Estate Cooldown, Las Vegas Seller Gets Attention by Listing Home for Just $1

LAS VEGAS, NV – As the real estate marketplace continues to experience a cooldown amid record national inflation, spiking interest rates on mortgages, and skyrocketing home prices, one crafty Las Vegas seller is getting attention for the bold move of listing their house with a starting price of just $1 in an effort to draw more offers. 

In a real estate climate that are seeing more and more homes sitting on the market for extended periods of time when compared to the mid-pandemic housing boom where they were selling hand-over-fist amid fierce competition, sellers are trying to figure out new ways of drawing prospective buyers to their listings. 

And if you’re browsing ads for a new home and notice a residence in the vicinity of St. Rose Parkway and I-15 with an initial asking price of $1, real estate agent Lana Boley wants to assure you that is not a typo. Instead, it’s part of a strategy intended to help move the house quickly for clients who are in a rush to sell in a slow market. 

“It is not a mistake. You basically have to talk to the listing agent and see what’s the highest you could do for that home,” she said. “Sometimes people just need to move to another state, or they have a different situation, and they don’t want to wait for an offer. So if they would like to sell it fast, they could list it for $1, or really, really low, so they could receive several offers and choose the best one.” 

The creative move comes as sellers in Vegas are dropping the prices of their homes after sales have dropped in recent months; according to reports, 2.4 percent of homes for sale in Southern Nevada have actually been “delisted” by their agents in order to wait for the market to recover. 

79 LOCKHEED AVENUE, LAS VEGAS – Accepting Offers

However, Boley noted that this is a sign that what was recently a very strong seller’s market is transitioning into a buyer’s market… albeit slowly. 

“There are a lot of opportunities, especially for the first-time homebuyers,” she said.

Las Vegas Luxury Home Purchased and Extensively Renovated on Market for Over $5 Million

LAS VEGAS, NV – A “fix and flip” luxury residence located on Boulderback Drive in Las Vegas that was purchased and extensively renovated has now been listed on the open market for a whopping $5.895 million.

Shelly Kramarczuk, principal and owner of SK Design, first noted the home earlier in 2022, and after purchasing the single-story, four-bedroom, 4,832 square-foot property, oversaw a complete transformation of its interior.

Many of the changes in the home made extensive use of Neolith, a type of sintered stone made from three types of natural materials: Glass, Porcelain, and Quartz. The stone puts together the best features of these raw materials, creating a stone that is highly durable, waterproof, scratch resistant, and resistant to UV rays.


An entire wall in the home’s great room is completely made up of Neolith, Kramarczuk noted, and influenced her decision to make it a common design motif throughout.

“It transformed the entire feeling of the home. I am in love with the Neolith product line. It’s so rich in its look and appeal,” she said. “I immediately saw it in my mind when I first entered the home. I had a vision of re-slabbing it to transform the feeling of the home, so that is where I started.”

The great room Neolith wall features a 98-inch television with an integrated sound system and a 100-inch Dimplex fireplace – with the components are built into an AV media wall box behind the television – all of which have been incorporated seamlessly into the structure.

Kramarczuk added a number of other elegant design aspects into the home over the course of its 5-month renovation process, including a $70,000 custom Bocci chandelier hanging over the formal dining table, floor-to-ceiling glass throughout much of the residence, dual contrasting waterfall islands with quartz countertops in the kitchen, and much more, creating what Kramarczuk referred to as a “timeless, organic-modern aesthetic.”

“Boulderback is a special property,” she said. “The floor plan is functional, with four bedrooms and flex rooms that can be customized to the buyer’s interests and needs.”

White Sands Motel

Abandoned 1.1 Acre Las Vegas White Sands Motel Site Hits Auction for Discounted $1.5 million

LAS VEGAS, NV – The long-abandoned Las Vegas White Sands Motel site – with the pool empty, existing building boarded-up and encircled with barbed wire fencing, now home to a stray cat colony – has been listed on the local real estate marketplace for $1.5 million by the estate of late owner Spartaco Colleli, in the hopes that even the most dilapidated property in Southern Nevada can fetch a healthy sum from the right investor.

The former motel – located on a 1.1 acre parcel of land on Las Vegas Boulevard, across from the Luxor Hotel and Casino – is being auctioned off on a website called Ten-X, which is accepting bids from December 12 to 14. The listing claims that the property’s “redevelopment opportunities are endless” due in-part to its proximity to Allegiant Stadium, T-Mobile Arena, and other well-known establishments.

Currently, it’s unknown if any bids will be made upon the property, or how much money overall it will generate in an auction; however, the building – originally constructed in the 1950s – is currently in a substantial state of disrepair, having been the target of vandalism and squatting by homeless people and cats for years.

With that being the case, the motel will most likely be torn down and the land re-developed if it does indeed sell next month, with the property likely used for some sort of tourist attraction due to its prominent location on the Las Vegas Strip.

The White Sands Motel site has been unsuccessfully put on the open market several times over the years for various asking prices. It was initially offered for $25 million in 2016, then for $18 million in 2021, and finally $12 million in spring 2022, with no takers each time. The $1.1 million starting price for this new auction represents the lowest amount it’s been advertised for yet, and experts believe that this may finally push buyers to take the plunge.

Las Vegas-Based Luxury Modern Equestrian Farmhouse Listed for Nearly $2 Million

LAS VEGAS, NV – An “outdated” equestrian property extensively transformed into an “organic luxury modern farmhouse” located in an out-of-the-way section of Las Vegas has been listed on the open real estate marketplace for nearly $2 million, according to reports.

The residence, located at 7435 W. Richmar Avenue – situated in a “peaceful nook” under Exploration Peak in the southwest Las Vegas Valley – was originally purchased in February 2022 by the husband-and-wife real estate team of Natalia and Ben Harris before their extensive renovation of the property.

The 3,358-square-foot home has now been listed for $1.849 million and features six bedrooms, four baths, formal living and dining and an executive office/flex space, all situated upon two acres of property isolated enough to give homeowners a strong sense privacy, but close enough to shopping and entertainment venues for when groceries or a night on the town are desired.

The house also boasts a detached casita, mature fruit trees, a greenhouse, resort-style pool, recreational vehicle parking and an oversized motor court entry.

7435 WEST RICHMAR AVENUE, LAS VEGAS – $1,849,000.00

Another selling point of the property is the large amount of nearby wildlife, with the owners noting that hundreds of species of birds are on display on a daily basis and coyotes are visible running up the nearby hills.

The property’s $250,000 in renovations – carried out by Gary Martin of GC Construction – were primarily confined to the residence’s interior, which Natalia and Ben Harris noted had a “cramped” feeling due to an excessive amount of partition walls; many of these were subsequently knocked down to create a spacious open-concept floor plan.

The overall aesthetic of the home, according to Natalia Harris, is now one of an “organic, modern farmhouse to pay tribute to the equestrian aspect of the property,” avoiding a completely modern feel in favor of an emphasis on warm, natural colors and textures.

Other upgrades include the gutting of the outdated kitchen and substituting it with a gourmet kitchen featuring quartz countertops and a striking black chevron backsplash, replacing the existing central multicolored stone fireplace with a LED black porcelain tile fireplace, and ripping out the old primary bathroom and transforming it into an exotic, resort-style bath.

High-Tech, Sustainable, Energy-Efficient Mansion Under Construction in Henderson

LAS VEGAS, NV – An Australian native is currently in the process of constructing a custom, high-tech, energy-efficient mansion in Las Vegas’ Henderson community by paying tribute to his experiences with the sustainable building methods widely utilized in the Land Down Under.

Adelaide – named after the South Australian capital city – is the brainchild of Michael Gardner, founder of Studio G Architecture and LUXUS Design Build, and features four bedrooms, five bathrooms, an office, and “flex space,” meaning a large, wide-open area that can be used for a variety of purposes.

Gardner noted that environmental sustainability is a vital component of Australian construction, and it’s a concept that he wanted to introduce in America.

“Sustainable design is so important in Australia,” he said. “As a tribute, we’re naming our custom homes after Australian cities. We’re trying to introduce a new, more sustainability-focused construction methodology.”

Many of environmentally sustainable aspects of Adelaide consist of passive, innovative technologies and enhanced construction methods, with the end goal being to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.

“Everything we do marks the LEED certification list,” Gardner said. “This home we’ve chosen to keep the price point in a place that makes sense to meet a LEED Silver certification.”

Some of the energy-efficient features that Adelaide boasts include closed-cell spray foam roof insulation, oversized exterior overhangs, north-facing windows, energy-efficient appliances, water-saving plumbing fixtures, LED lighting and high Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rated mechanical equipment.


However, the home is not simply about tech; when finished, it will also have numerous luxury amenities, such as an electronically-controlled gate that, upon opening, will reveal a natural Zen-styled garden.

Work on Adelaide originally commenced in July; the estimated completion date is spring 2023, with Gardner noting that he hopes to have the spec house sold while still its construction phase.

Summerlin Mansion Featuring Indoor Shooting Range, Hidden Rooms, Goes on Market for Nearly $9 Million

LAS VEGAS, NV – A lavish mansion located in Summerlin’s Tournament Hills community has just gone on the market for nearly $9 million, featuring many unique amenities, not the least of which being an indoor shooting range.

The $8.975 million, 21,835 square-foot residence is situated upon three-quarters of an acre of land, and boasts a mind-boggling 11 bedrooms, 16 baths, a commercial elevator, and even hidden rooms. Marble and granite flooring abound, and the 27-foot ceiling in the foyer provides astounding acoustics for music-playing; it is the perfect accompaniment to the home’s Savant System, which provides music throughout the entire residence.

The kitchen – which is hotel restaurant quality – proves to be no less impressive, with extensive cabinetry; two dishwashers; a trash compactor; two Dacor ovens; two Scotsman ice makers; and multiple refrigerated, freezing, and warming drawers. The appliances are stainless steel with Viking hood commercial fryer, a Hobart commercial dishwashing station, commercial Besam automated doors, a commercial refrigerator, and a dishwasher.

8920 PLAYERS CLUB DRIVE, LAS VEGAS – $8,975,000.00

The house also has a 46-foot-by-20-foot professional gym with mirrored walls, wood flooring, three televisions, and state-of-the-art equipment. There is also a game room and a sound-proofed home theater with 15 reclining seats, surround sound, and a Rincon Projector. The bathroom in the master bedroom bath features a dry sauna, Jacuzzi tub, dual sinks, dual vanities and dual toilets; in addition, there is a secret passage in the walk-in closet.

However, the main draw of the property has to be the indoor shooting range, which is located in a hidden room with rubber-coated walls to capture lead dust – the range is designed for no-lead emission – and can accommodate up to 50-caliber handgun ammunition. The target’s distance can be adjusted with an electronic system.

It is currently unknown if the home – which has only just recently been listed on the market – has received any offers as of yet.

Spanish Hills Mansion Offering Views of Entire Las Vegas Valley Listed for $8.9 Million

LAS VEGAS, NV – A Spanish Hills “ultra-contemporary” mansion that purportedly offers breathtaking views of the entirety of the Las Vegas Valley has been listed on the open market for $8.9 million.

Located at 5198 Scenic Ridge Drive, the 9,084 square-foot residence – according to Jim Ross, owner of Unique Custom Homes, whose company built the house – is an entirely unique property that has the best views in all of Southern Nevada.

“This property has one of the best views in Las Vegas,” he said. “I wanted to capture those views from every room.”

The mansion began construction in 2017 as a “spec home” and was completed one year later. According to Ross, the residence offers six bedrooms – with two of them being primary suites – along with cutting-edge design techniques that emphasize “clean horizontal lines,” a warm, neutral color palette, distinctive detailing, and eye-catching curb appeal.

5198 SCENIC RIDGE DRIVE, LAS VEGAS – $8,900,000.00

The home’s design showcases “seamless indoor-outdoor living,” with a spacious great room with 12-foot ceilings leading to a formal dining area, gourmet kitchen, and an exterior deck that has retracting glass walls that blur the line between the indoors and outdoors.

There is also a vast wine cellar; a resort-style exterior with a pool with fire edge, covered patio, barbecue area, elevated spa and an outdoor gazebo; oversized four-car garage that can accommodate the installation of vehicle lifts to expand its capacity; and, of course, access to the Spanish Hills’ guard-gated community’s many amenities, including parks, swimming pools, tennis courts, a fitness center and clubhouse.

“The beauty of buying in Spanish Hills is it’s a hidden gem,” listing agent Ivan Sher said. “Whoever buys this not only gets these incredible views, amenities and fully built-out neighborhood but you’re getting it at a price you couldn’t get anywhere else.”

Lake Tahoe Nevada

Lavish 16,000+ Square-Foot Lake Tahoe Estate Hits Market for Whopping $64.5 Million

LAS VEGAS, NV – Crystal Pointe Estate – a massive, lavish abode overlooking Lake Tahoe’s Crystal Bay – has been listed on the Nevada real estate marketplace, with the sellers hoping to fetch a massive payday of $64.5 million when or if it sells.

Crystal Pointe Estate, located at 300 Highway 28 in Crystal Bay, is an astounding feat of architecture. The home is a custom, private-gated estate consisting of a huge, 16,232 square-foot main residence, adjoining guest wing, detached garage pavilion and a 3,600 square-foot beach house, all interconnected by two hillside funicular trams enclosed in glass.

The asking price, if met, is record-breaking for the region; the previous record-holder is $56 million for the purchase of the Whittell Estate – including the historic Thunderbird Lodge – that took place back in 1998 by the Del Webb Corporation.

Crystal Pointe Estate was originally the brainchild of Stuart and Geri Yount, a couple who painstakingly designed every aspect of it from the ground-up. After buying the property it stands upon in 1994, the development of the main residence alone took five years; due to permit issues, the beach house took an additional 10 years to finish, having been completed in 2016.

The estate is comprised of 5.1 private acres that includes 525 feet of lakefront with a terraced beach, four buoys and a pier. The house itself has eight bedrooms, 12 baths, formal dining and living rooms, 13 fireplaces, a primary bedroom office with leather door inlays and a Brazilian mahogany library, an old English pub-inspired billiards room with bar, 1,687-bottle wine cellar, game room, movie theater, and caretaker’s apartment.

The home also features floor-to-ceiling windows, custom-designed fireplaces, wood vaulted ceilings, grand wood pillars and custom lighting. Throughout the estate intricate detail abounds and no two rooms look the same, with Geri Yount stating that when designing the home, “We went room by room and I insisted nothing be the same anywhere. Everything in the house is unique to its own space.”

Upon completion of the home, the couple resided there for the 24 years, only recently deciding to put it up for sale in order to move to be closer to their grandchildren.

Jerry Lewis

Home of Late Comedian Jerry Lewis to Hit Market Again, Seller Asking $2.7 Million

LAS VEGAS, NV – The Las Vegas home of late comedian Jerry Lewis, which has changed hands several times over the years since his passing, has been listed on the real estate marketplace once again, with its current owner asking for a cool $2.7 million for the former abode of the legendary funnyman.

Lewis had resided in the home – located in Las Vegas’ swanky Scotch 80s neighborhood – for almost 35 years; upon his death in 2017, it initially had difficulty in finding a buyer before eventually being sold to Jane Popple in 2019 for $1.2 million. It was then auctioned off for the sum of $2.5 million, but when the bid fell through, it was listed on the open market for $1.8 million.

Thereafter, the property, 1701 Waldman Ave, Las Vegas, was sold to Iddo Gavish of Century 21 Gavish Real Estate for approximately $1.4 million.

Gavish had spruced up the property before putting it up for sale, modernizing the home – while not taking away from the home’s nostalgia or history, he said – with several large-scale updates due to its need for “rehab and renovation.” The work included a renovation of the landscaping, gates, pool, master bathroom and kitchen.

The home, coming in at 7,230 square-feet and offering an impressive six bedrooms and six bathrooms, will officially be listed on the market this week for $2.7 million

Gavish also noted that he wanted to pay homage to Lewis’ legacy – especially due to his history as a long-time advocate of the Muscular Dystrophy Association with his famous “Jerry’s Kids” fundraisers – by hosting several charity events sponsored by his agency, with the proceeds going to the organization that Lewis represented for so many years.

The main fundraiser will take the form of a “socialthon” – the date of which will be announced – will run on multiple social media platforms, during which supporters can make online donations.

Another attractive feature of the property is its location within Summerlin’s guard-gated Eagle Hills community, which provides numerous top-of-the-line amenities for its residents, such as private tennis and basketball courts, shaded children’s park, walking trails, and access to a top golf course.

15 Fire Rock Court

Las Vegas Developer Lists Southern Highlands Golf Club Spec Home for $5.29 Million, Includes $100,000 Tesla

LAS VEGAS, NV – A Las Vegas developer has listed a swanky new spec home built on the grounds of the Southern Highlands Golf Club for the whopping sum of $5.29 million, and to sweeten the deal they’re throwing in a $100,000 Tesla to help fill out the dwelling’s spacious four-car garage.

A spec house – short for speculative house – is a new house that a home developer builds on the speculation that it will sell easily for a profit. Builders design these move-in-ready homes to be as appealing to home buyers as possible.

That being said, Domanico Developers – the builders of the new Southern Highlands Golf Club listing – certainly gave it their all when attempting to offer an appealing home. Located at 15 Fire Rock Court in a guard-gated enclave, the home comes in at two stories and boasts a contemporary design.

The home uses stone on its exterior, and a huge double-height great room boasts vaulted ceilings and a humongous fireplace mantle. There are two master bedrooms on each wing of the lower level, each with a spa-steam shower, walk-in closet, a washer and dryer, and a private trellis-covered courtyard. Next to the great room is a game room that can be used as a theater.

15 FIRE ROCK COURT, LAS VEGAS – $5,290,000.00

The backyard has a swimming pool, barbecue area, a fire pit and serving bar.

According to the realtor representing the developer, in addition to the $100,000 Tesla, another move to sweeten the deal for prospective buyers includes a $100,000 allowance for furniture as well; the home comes with furniture from Staged To Sell which can be purchased by the buyer, if they so choose.

And if the buyer already happens to own a Tesla, they can instead receive a discount on the sale if they prefer, according to listing agent Ernie Domanico, Jr, who noted that the impressive incentives included in the same are part of a creative marketing strategy.

“If the buyers already have a Tesla, we can just credit them $100,000 and they can do whatever they want with it,” Domanico said. “We are trying to do something new to grab people’s attention. Electric cars are a big thing and everyone that goes with electric cars seems to be going toward a Tesla.”

11489 SNOW CREEK AVENUE, LAS VEGAS - $3,500,000.00

Heavily Renovated Luxury Home in Red Rock Country Club Hits Market for $3.5 Million

LAS VEGAS, NV – An aging million-dollar-plus home located in Las Vegas’ Red Rock Country Club community that has received a huge facelift – now boasting numerous new modern touches – has just been listed on the open market for $3.5 million.

Forte Specialty Contractors, owned by developer Scott Acton, has been responsible for renovating many high-end homes in Southern Nevada and building some of the iconic sights of Las Vegas, such as the pirate ship at Treasure Island 20 years ago.

In September 2020, Acton purchased a home in Red Rock Country Club for $1.025 million that was originally built in 2003, and spent a year gutting, renovating and sprucing it up to suit the tastes of today’s homebuyers that are seeking out the latest in high-tech bells and whistles, along with luxury trappings such as high-end finishes and appliances, along with new open floor plans.

The two-story home – listed by Acton’s daughter, Samantha Paez – offers five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and comes in at 4,546 square feet, with 100 of those feet having been newly added during the extensive renovation process.

11489 SNOW CREEK AVENUE, LAS VEGAS – $3,500,000.00

The home – located on the golf course in Red Rock – now boasts numerous modernized amenities, including a home office/gym combo, steel windows and doors, high-end upgrades with marble and stone throughout, a double island marble-countered kitchen with white European millwork finishes, Viking appliances and custom banquette seating.

The master bedroom features a patio, custom fabric headboard attached to the wall, a bathroom featuring floor-to-ceiling Vanilla Onyx marble, and an upgraded the backyard with etched concrete, lush landscaping, and a new pool.

Currently, Forte Specialty Contractors is one of the main developers of high-end properties in Las Vegas, with 15 projects currently in the works in The Summit, adjacent to Red Rock Country Club.
