Ready To Relocate To Las Vegas? How To Find The Perfect Home.

Where is the best place to buy a house in Las Vegas?  

This really depends on your lifestyle & what you love to do. Do you go to the casinos on the Strip or enjoy all the great outdoors we have surrounding the city more frequently? If you want both there are also some great locals casinos in many areas too. Far up North & West may be good if you love snowboarding, or hiking Mt. Charleston. A few communities my clients really like up there are:

Providence

Centennial Hills  

Skye Canyon

Head South & East and you’ll be close to lakes Mead & Mojave if you prefer more fishing, boating, &  jet skiing.  Lake Las Vegas is a prominent community in that direction that has its own man-made lake & plenty of celebrity neighbors.  You could even go out to Boulder City, a small-town feeling city not far from Las Vegas proper.  Boulder City is the town built around the creation of the famous Hoover Dam & Milo’s Cellar is still a gem of a little spot for lunch & even has a few rooms to rent for the night.

For Debbie & Peter, being close to family, having the job-relocation opportunity, & being able to say goodbye to those frozen New York winters were main motivators.

We’d done all the leg work to figure out what she & Peter were looking for in a new home, had her pre-qualified with Charles Christmas at Gold Star Financial, and were prepared to make a confidant offer when the right home appeared. Something low maintenance, secure, and comfortably appointed with great amenities were all on the top of the list. Fortunately, Spanish Trail community was not only checking all these boxes, it was a short drive from family already in town.

Debbie’s son & I had walked a few properties together, using Facetime to give a live feed to Debbie and Peter, while her son gave commentary on how he thought the space & design elements would
