The best Las Vegas Real Estate regions to invest in
What differentiates Las Vegas real estate regions from other developments in the rest of the country is the fact that most of the communities are planned and designed to fit the landscape. Remember that Las Vegas is situated in the Mojave Desert which is not exactly conducive to fine living. The temperatures are searing, the wind can be extremely strong, the dust whips all around creating havoc, and there is no water. Yet in spite of all of this, the people of Las Vegas and the surrounding regions have not only managed to inhabit the area but have gone to great lengths to create something which is extravagant, luxurious, and downright beautiful.
Take for example, Henderson, one of the highly touted Las Vegas communities. Every piece of the city is finely tuned and carefully orchestrated. It is this precision and attention to detail that makes neighborhoods in Henderson good places in which to invest. Coupled with the fact that the city prides itself on small town values while at the same time employing forward-thinking ideals to attract new businesses, Henderson is the right mix of government, community and development – and Henderson offers great family-friendly real estate!
Another example of a lovely area in which to invest in Las Vegas real estate is Aliante in North Las Vegas. Like other luxury communities in the region, the large homes are not particularly expensive. One of the master builders for the project, Pardee Homes, offers multi- bedroom, multi-bathroom, two story, two thousand to four thousand square foot homes for mid to high $300,000s. Although the property taxes are a little higher here than the rest of Nevada, the investment is nonetheless, worthwhile, given the gated communities, gorgeous golf course, recreational parks, nature trails, and fabulous architecture in Tuscan, Spanish or Italianate.
To the northwest of the valley, is situated Desert Shores, a distinctive community based around four man-made lakes. Lake front homes actually have docks which would be unheard of in the desert and to add to the recreational value of the properties, there is even fishing.
Since the area has long been sold out, the only way to invest in the homes is by resale. But this creates an excellent investment because when a property does become available it will be snatched up immediately.
One last region to highlight is Eldorado, an up and coming community which is seeing much growth and development. As a result, many opportunities exist for the area that is part of what is now being referred to as the “Golden Triangle”.
Because all of these communities are self-contained with their own shopping malls, recreational facilities, golf courses, and parks, everyone has a vested interest in the community. This in turn makes an investment more solid since the end goal for all is to keep the area vibrant.
