I live in Centennial Hills. There is crime in any neighborhood, but it isn't a high crime area. Zip 89149 would be considered CH.

I am also looking to move the Las Vegas area soon and very interested in Centennial Hills area. As other poster said, EVERY area has crime, but the schools score great!! A tool I have been using when I look at a home I am interested in is CrimeView Community Incident Map : Las Vegas Metro Police Department It is the crime reports for the area, you can look UP TO 60 days back for an area, or specific address. It has been VERY helpful for me. My daughter loves Libraries and we all love the idea of shopping and parks being nearby, so that area has been a big "must check out" for me. I hope this site helps you some!! Good luck!!

Quite a few homes for sale in Centennial Hills. One of the good things is that it is a relatively new neighborhood, so there aren't any very old homes around. Shopping is convenient, and we have a library and a YMCA in the neighborhood.

Thank you for your response
You are right- unfortunately crime can be found anywhere.

Centennial Hills I think is pretty nice. Newer construction, newer streets and new shopping centers. We like it and the crime didn't seem like a problem here. In most big cities there is really good areas and really bad areas, but in Vegas there doesn't seem to have that distinction in areas and I think that is why so many people post so many questions about different neighborhoods. I found that to be the hardest part about buying in Las Vegas was finding the really good neighborhoods. I'm really not sure they exist here. I think it is just different levels of crime and poverty and how much are you willing to spend to experience less of it.

As others have said, there's crime everywhere, but I'll say that CH is the safest I've felt in Vegas

How is that hard? There's The Ridges in Summerlin, MacDonald Highlands in Henderson, Tomiyasu Lane in Las Vegas.

See? Easy. Three really good neighborhoods. Finding the really good neighborhoods is easy. Finding the funds to buy a house there is the hard part.

You're naming small, gated communities and a single street. That's like 0.01% of Las Vegas. I'm taking about large areas that the average to upper end buyers can afford that is considered really nice, very low crime and no poverty. You're right about finding the funds to buy the nice homes. Not easy these days.
