Now that you have seen the “Strip,” you may wonder if Las Vegas would be a great place to live. As you start your research, know that the individual tax picture here is one of the lowest of anywhere in the U.S. You have probably seen articles about our great climate with more than 330 sunshine days a year. (That’s more than any place in the “Sunshine State.”) You may have read articles about Henderson, Nevada, being one of the safest cities in America to live. Have you wondered where Henderson is relative to Las Vegas? In real estate articles about the Las Vegas market you may have seen that Summerlin is the writer’s favorite area of Las Vegas for finding a home. Where is Summerlin relative to the famous “Strip,” where you found such exciting amenities and shows?
Let me tell you about real estate in the Las Vegas Valley, so you can decide on the area that best fits your lifestyle.
First, if you are considering retiring in a community that is designed for those looking for “active retirement,” we have multiple locations within the valley which include Del Webb designed Sun Cities. There are also other retired living communities offering a variety of amenities and opportunities to meet new friends and take advantage of that free time that you have worked so hard to enjoy. These can be found in Henderson (which is really just the southern part of the Las Vegas Valley with its own government, police force and friendly community spirit) with its reputation for safety and small town feel; Summerlin (a short drive west of the Las Vegas Strip with many famous tributaries connecting directly to “the greatest lifestyle” experience on earth and amongst some of America’s most spectacular “red rock” formations) with its progressive, active community lifestyle; and the north valley, where the rush of the big city has not yet arrived, and the major growth corridor is still moving forward.
If you don’t want to be in an age-controlled community but want a place where retirees and those with families who are still working enjoy shared neighborhoods, we have many great developments designed to appeal to all lifestyles. Again, you’ll find those communities in Henderson, Summerlin, and the northwest. We have some older areas of this type on the east side of Las Vegas as well, up against the scenic Sunrise Mountain area.
We will discuss other features of real estate opportunities in future blogs. No matter what type of home you want, the Las Vegas Valley has plenty of opportunities for you to find that Great Las Vegas Home. Let our team help you find your next home in a location that offers a unique place to live and enjoy your particular lifestyle.
