President’s Message: Now, More Than Ever ...

By Heidi Kasama, 2018 Nevada REALTORS® President

WEB-Kasama

Following what I hope was a generous and warm holiday season, the New Year is now upon us. As you hang your new calendars, I wanted to send a note and wish all of you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2018.

I’m also excited to share with you some big news. Our state association has a new name and a fresh new logo. The new name is simply Nevada REALTORS®, replacing the old and longer moniker, Nevada Association of REALTORS®. Additionally, the association will no longer use the acronym NVAR. You’ve probably noticed the new logo here in this email. Your Nevada REALTORS® leadership is excited about these changes and it believes they provide better brand awareness as well as reinforces the power of the REALTOR® voice throughout the Silver State. Now, more than ever, each REALTOR® needs to engage in your local and state associations.

Marketplace: How a red-hot housing market became a crisis

 

web-housesThis week, 10 years ago, Americans learned that the U.S. had its largest single-year drop in home prices in a quarter century. Not that this was shocking at the time. The housing crisis was in full effect, the spillover effects into the financial system were clear, and though not everyone knew it at the time, the country was a month into recession, as economists would later determine. 

But before the recession, there was the housing crisis, and before it, the housing bubble. It began, in many ways, in people's heads. That is, after all, where hopes ultimately reside. As this century began, people felt great about housing.

"Oh, it was so hot!" Heidi Kasama recalled. Kasama is a longtime real estate agent in Nevada and president of Nevada REALTORS®. Read the complete story and get more insights from Kasama by clicking here.
