Past Clients We've Helped

  • We had the pleasure of working with Scott when we were searching for a property in a very hot market of Henderson, NV. Scott was by far the hardest working, most responsive realtor I have EVER worked with (and I have worked with many realtors over the years). We were out of town and Scott would  personally preview each house and even took additional pictures for our review! Scott was always very professional, but also very personable and great to work with. I would highly recommend Scott for any of your real estate needs. You will not be sorry!

  • Ehren and his team made purchasing our first home very easy.  We felt they had our best interests in mind and helped us find the right house.  We were very specific on what we wanted and Matt gave us plenty of choices.  Even after the purchase was final they were there to assist when needed.  Great team, will gladly recommend them to anyone and we look forward to working with them in the future.

  • I want to thank Ehren Alessi and his team at Resolution Realty. He and his team helped me purchase my home in Las Vegas. I have never purchased a home before and honestly was a little freighted of the process. Ehren explained all the details, answered all my questions and never made me feel I was alone in the process. If you are looking to buy or sell your home there is only one Real Estate Broker to call, Ehren Alessi! Thank you Ehren and your team at Resolution Realty!

Home Is Possible FAQs

Here is a list of most commonly asked questions.

What is the maximum purchase price?

The home must be under $400,000.

Are there credit requirements?

Yes, the buyer must meet credit requirements. For more information on said requirements please contact us for a checklist.

Will the borrower receive a 1099 or 1098 for the bonus down payment money received?

No. The money is truly a gift.

Does the buyer need to live in the home for a specified period?

The buyer may sell or refinance at any time.

Are there any restrictions if the buyer is relocating to Nevada from out-of-state?

There are no restrictions. However, the home must be their primary residence and they must occupy the home within 60 days of closing.

Is there a recapture of the down payment money?

There is no recapture or prepayment penalty.

Will the HIP program slow down the closing?

No. The borrower will sign one document, the gift letter, at closing. The Nevada Housing Division also provides a commitment letter. The lender is responsible for providing all funds to the borrower.
No, the borrower must use the HIP program, as the down payment is not a standalone product. (However, you may use the MCC program as a standalone product.)

Is financing for new construction allowed under the HIP program?

While HIP cannot be used as construction financing, it can be used for the permanent financing. Wait to reserve funds once the house is complete and the date is within 45 days of closing.
