Lake Mead Water Levels Fine for Now, but Cutbacks Could Be Coming as Soon as 2019
If considering a retirement location in the Southwest you need to think WATER!!  Mesquite does not rely on the Colorado River system for its water. Mesquite gets its water from wells and natural aquafiers. Arizona will be facing a HUGE dilema in possibly just 13 months.  St George is growing too fast and needs to build a super expensive pipeline from Lake Powell for more water.  Here are excerpts from an article I just read:
"Officials say they're not concerned about water levels on a key Colorado River reservoir for the next 13 months, but an expected shortage could force cutbacks as soon as late 2019. An extended forecast from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, paired with previous warnings, all point to the same reality for Lake Mead: prolonged dry periods and rising demand could drain so much water from the reservoir that mandatory cutbacks might become necessary. "If these projections materialize, we're very quickly going to lose control of how to manage the deteriorating conditions on the Colorado River," said John Entsminger, general manager of the Southern Nevada Water Authority, which serves 2.1 million people, including the city of Las Vegas. The water is divided under international treaties, court rulings and interstate agreements. If there's not enough water to go around, Mexico, Arizona and Nevada would be the first to see their shares reduced. The Bureau of Reclamation forecast says all the users will get their usual share through September 2019. But the report projects that by October 2019, the surface of Lake Mead could fall below 1,075 feet above sea level, the agreed-upon point that would trigger an announcement of cutbacks that would occur sometime in the following 12 months.  The river has been over allocated.  A good book on the Water Woes the West may face is "Cadillac Desert" by Marc Reisner

Mesquite Ranked #1 Safest City in Nevada for 2018

A new report, just published by SafeWise, lists the five safest cities in Nevada for 2018.  SafeWise is an online safety resource that regularly releases “Safest Cities” reports, and other reports on a variety of safety topics to raise awareness about the state of safety in our country.  The data they use for their reports comes from the most recent FBI crime report.Mesquite Nevada is currently ranked on their report as the #1 safest city in the state of Nevada.  Just as exciting is Mesquite has reported up to 83% less violent crime than the state average.SafeWise also builds their evaluation based on the number of reported violent crimes (aggravated assault, murder, rape, and robbery) in each city.  They also factor in the number of property crimes (burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft).  To level the playing field, they calculate the rate of crimes per 1,000 people in each city. This makes it easier to directly compare the likelihood of these crimes occurring in cities with vastly different populations.

Sun City Mesquite article posted in Denver Post
At Sun City Mesquite, Nev., just south of St. George, Utah, you’ll find a place with affordable new ranch plans wrapped by seven golf courses and where residents brag about their scenery and views, particularly during fall and winter.  But if you want to find a home there that’s ready-to-go, you need to come see it this summer.  “We just can’t keep an inventory; there’s too much demand,” says Annette Forgie with Sun City’s builder/developer Del Webb.  But visit Sun City this month and you’ll find four rare ranches that are set to deliver, priced from $273,000 to $420,000 — way, way below the average price of a single-family resale home in the Denver area.  And to make that drive out to age-55—plus Sun City more enticing still, Del Webb will put you up for a “Summer Special” at Mesquite’s Eureka Casino Resort — 1,100 slots, plus tables, sports betting, indoor/outdoor pools and a good steakhouse — two nights for just $99.  Tucked up against the Virgin River Mountains 80 miles north of Las Vegas, Mesquite is just the fix for what ails longtime Colorado residents now: a town of just 18,000, where residents joke that a traffic jam is three cars occupying a three-lane boulevard at the same time.  Its popularity with the age-55-plus crowd has created a sizable sports scene — not just golf, but senior softball tourneys, and very active ATV clubs that explore the canyons leading to seven national parks and monuments within four hours of here.  Goody and the Del Webb staff will introduce you to a number of Coloradans who made the 10-hour drive out to see Mesquite and have stayed.  “They all tell us how hot the Denver market is, and how fast their home will sell,” says Goody, adding that Del Webb is getting an even larger throng of visitors from California, where rising prices and affordability are even larger issues than they are in Colorado.  To meet that demand, Del Webb is readying a new area called Settlers Canyon (you’ll see plans during your visit).  Sun City has base prices for a selection of new ranches from $219,990 to $353,990. Add on a lot premium of $80,000 to $120,000 and you could have a site in its current Wishing Well neighborhood, overlooking Conestoga Golf Club, and still come in under that average Denver single-family price.  But now’s the time to explore. “Price increases are the norm here, and we see them in the very near future,” Forgie notes.  You’ll tour a new Daisy plan, two bedrooms/two baths and a two-car attached garage, ready at $273,000, or a roomy Preserve plan, over 2,000 square feet, ready at $420,000.  The $99 two-night special is good through Aug. 31 (you must reserve in advance).  Sun City Mesquite is 660 miles west of Denver. Contact  Robert ”Goody” Good with RE/MAX in Mesquite for more info.  Goody has been a resident of Sun City Mesquite since 2011 and loves living here.  He can show you new homes as well as existing “Resale” homes.  Remember, you can use an outside agent to represent you in the purchase of a new home in Sun City.  Their sales people all represent the builder.  I would represent YOU!

Buying a home is not like purchasing a plane ticket, and selling a property is not like selling a car

In the eyes of some consumers, the Internet and associated technology have replaced the critical importance of the working Realtor. Unfortunately, a bad experience or failed transaction is the painful lesson for buyers and sellers who forgo a professional real estate agent to represent them in the most expensive purchase/sale they will ever make. Before joining the ranks of these now-enlightened consumers, take a moment to understand the extraordinary value your agent brings to the table — and the risks he or she must accept on a daily basis. The internet (through major real estate sites such as Zillow, Realtor.com, Trulia, and many others) has made it possible for laymen to do much of the initial legwork of buying or selling a home themselves. According to The Digital House Hunt (Consumer and Market Trends in Real Estate), 9 in 10 homebuyers today rely on the internet as one of their primary research sources, a fact that modern Realtors not only accept but use to their advantage.  However, at the end of the day, there is no substitute for having an experienced agent represent your interest on a real estate transaction.  In the eyes of some consumers, the Internet and associated technology have replaced the critical importance of the working Realtor.
