Just saw on the landlord protection agency website about reporting tenants that don’t pay to credit bureaus as well as a deadbeat tenant list. Might be an idea anyway.

My spouse is an RN with the VA, so it was a transfer from Texas. We had looked at buying a 2nd home in 2012, as prices were a giveaway. I thought it would be a good investment and it would have been for a re-sale. I wanted to live in a 55 and older community as I could not tolerate teenagers or a garage band living next door. We have better investments than having to take care of a rental property and put up with that headache. Property is not a giveaway like it was and you see the slow down already happening. Do you really want that crap in your life? My spouses family lives in Centennial Hills off Farm Rd. and I do love that area with its shopping and close proximity to the 95 and Red Rock. We are near the VA, in a 55 & older community that I love, but our house is WAY to BIG, at 1,811 sq ft, for 2 people. I have better things to do than clean house and here with the dust, you will be cleaning. Vegas is AWESOME! as you know. We did the same came 2-3 times a year. We have family here but would not tell them we were coming, as they would want to dominate our time. On our home inspection, my B-day I was forced to go to a dinner and I was tired. NP, RN you will not have a problem. My spouse has 20 years with the VA an MSN, so you can see where I am going there. No kids, lot's of Fur Babies, maybe a PhD for teaching in retirement. You will miss the food of Louisianna and when they say "Southern" it "ain't" so here. Vegas is wonderful, Shhhhh. 13 months here and I have to pinch myself to believe I live here. Our text every day when my spouse gets to the VA is "another wonderful day in Vegas" I love the South, but the humidity is a killer, not the heat.

There are plenty of nursing jobs here. Are you hospital based, LTC, outpatient? Let me know what type of setting you desire to work in and I can give you some expectations on hourly pay, and which facilities have the best reputation. Do you plan to work as an RN in Vegas, since you will be so close to graduating as a NP?

Nurse practitioners here do have good opportunities. Pay is good, and lots of options to choose from. Nevada is a "Full Practice" state for NP's. What specialty is she in? FNP? Let me know any other questions you have.
Sorry for the late reply. Been working and studying for finals. Yes, I plan on working as an RN for however long it takes to graduate and get a job as a NP. I work at a Urgent Care facility at the moment and love it. I know itís hard for new grads NPs in some areas. She works in ENT at the moment and has internal medicine and surgery experience.

You are so right about the humidity. It can be 90 degrees here and feel like 110 degrees elsewhere. We have always been interested in rentals as more of a retirement diversification. Not really looking to make huge cash flow. I can understand the headache, but honestly was gonna use a management company when that time came. The reason I was asking about locations was just in case the economy does tank and we get stuck living in the house for longer than we planned. We want it to be an area that we would still like if it comes to staying there ourselves for years. We love the Red Rock area. Ive actually never been to the Centennial Hills area, but have read good things. Iím coming in January and will rent a car and check out all the previous mentioned areas. Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I honestly canít wait for the move. Only thing Iíll really miss about Louisiana is family and crawfish season.

I don't think I'd ever want to own a rental here. Judging by the known rentals in my own neighborhood, there are a metric TON of crap tenants here and who wants to deal with that?
