Improving housing market luring would-be brokers

MIAMI (AP) -- The number of U.S. real estate agents is increasing as the housing market recovers from the Great Recession.

Applications for new real estate licenses doubled in Florida and California last year. Even hard-hit Nevada has seen the number of people seeking licenses grow by almost a quarter.

And the National Association of Realtors says its membership grew slightly last year after six straight years of declines.

Experts warn that real estate is a tough profession and that many new agents quit before they sell a single house.

Three new road projects set to start in Henderson

HENDERSON, Nev. -- The three extra cents per gallon every time you fill up is really starting to add up.

Since starting up in January, the fuel tax has raised about $80 million. The money is being used to update and fix roads all across Clark County.

So far, it has funded at least 37 projects. Three of those projects are set to get underway in just a few days.

The goal is to make things safer for three very busy areas of Henderson. Next week, workers will start repaving Warm Springs Road from Arroyo Grande Boulevard to Stephanie Street.

They will also tackle Eastern Avenue from Silverado Ranch Boulevard to Coronado Center Drive.

They're already out near Whitney Ranch Drive from Russell Road to Arroyo Grande Boulevard, adding bike lanes and much more.

The intersection of Whitney Ranch Drive and Patrick Lane has been a point of concern, not only for Henderson city leaders, but local business owners for years.
