    May 10, 2017 | Las Vegas Sun | Adam Candee

    Lease negotiations between the Raiders and the Las Vegas Stadium Authority have intensified in the past few days as NFL owners set a soft deadline of May 23 for approving the document.


    League owners will gather in Chicago on that date for spring meetings, and they want to bless the Raiders lease because they will not gather again until fall. Authority board chairman Steve Hill confirmed the NFL’s request to approve the lease in May.

    “We’re going to do what we can to get the lease basically in final form by then, if it’s possible,” Hill said. “We told the Raiders we’ll do everything we can to make that happen.”

That’s a jump of more than 3 percent over the same period from last year for a three-bedroom, single-family home. Nationally, the average rent moved up 2 percent to $1,379 per month.

  • Raiders' stadium in Las Vegas has deep ties to gambling industry

    May 03, 2017 | USA Today | Brent Schrotenboer

    The new NFL stadium in Las Vegas doesn’t yet have a name and isn’t expected to open until 2020. But when it does, at least one nickname certainly will apply: The House That Gambling Built.

    The $1.9 billion project never would have made it through the state legislature – or attracted the Oakland Raiders – without the support of the gambling industry, according to experts and the legislative record.

    “The industry has been instrumental in the project,” said Jeremy Aguero, an analyst who works for the Las Vegas Stadium Authority, the stadium’s landlord.

  • Nevadans giving more cash to charities

    May 01, 2017 | Las Vegas Business Press | Buck Wargo

    Charitable giving by companies and individuals is up in Southern Nevada and credit goes not only to the recovery of the economy but the small-community feel that permeates Las Vegas compared to some larger cities, according to a high-wealth executive at Nevada State Bank.

    Charitable giving by individuals in Nevada reached an all-time high in 2014, the latest Internal Revenue Service data available, according to a High Net Worth report compiled by research firm Applied Analysis on behalf of the Private Bank by Nevada State Bank.
