5 Communities to Consider When Relocating to Las Vegas

Communities Map

The rush to relocate to Las Vegas doesn’t look like it’s slowing down. For the past couple of years, there’s been much written about Los Angelenos moving to Vegas, which doesn’t come as a surprise considering the price of housing in Las Vegas is less than half the cost of LA market.

And now, we are witnessing high numbers moving in from other states as well, including Pennsylvania, Illinois, Texas and Washington.

But for many, the search for a new home soon becomes a daunting task as they try to find the right community to match their needs from the hundreds that are available.

That’s why the first question we’re often asked is “where do I start?” So, we’ve listed five wonderful master-planned communities that you should consider regardless of whether you’re a transplant or a local.
