What to Expect in a Las Vegas Home

Owning a Las Vegas home is a very proud moment for many people. Why is it a proud moment? The Las Vegas market has been one of the greatest markets to invest in over recent years. Many homeowners have been well pleased by the return on their investment in the Las Vegas Valley. Much of this appreciation can be attributed to the booming gaming industry, which provides a great deal of jobs for individuals who live out of state. With as many as 7,500 people a month moving into Las Vegas along with the growing population of investors Las Vegas has proven its worth to its homeowners.

Las Vegas has a unique feel to its neighborhoods that are not always common in other states. With the growing population and the limited land available for developing, homebuilders have become creative in their design of subdivisions and home design so to be able to provide for the immense growth. Though it is still possible to buy a ranch style home (single story home) it is more common to find two story or split level homes especially with newer homes within the last 5 – 10 years. This may surprise some out of state homebuyers who are accustomed to seeing a majority of ranch style homes or even homes with basements, which also is a rare commodity here in the valley.

The common size of a Las Vegas yard, in many of the newer home tracts, is less than a ¼ acre. Don’t worry, Las Vegas has many homes that suite the families that need room for the kids and the animals, cats to horses. If you like to travel and you have an R.V., there is a great selection of homes that come equip with R.V. hookups and parking for your convenience.

With the reputation of Las Vegas being a party city and a 24hr all night place it may be easy to overlook the fact that Vegas also provides a lifestyle of comfort and peace just minutes away from the action. Feel free to come join us in owning a part of Las Vegas.
