Getting back to the housing market trends, as I keep saying, look at what's happening in LA. LA seems to be cooling off, but not imploding. I would expect the same in Vegas.

Cute, but probably not correct. Interest rates probably have much more to do with it, as does political uncertainty.

That sounds like a very cheap property tax bill.

Similar home in Las Vegas would be around $2,000 or half as much.

Texas has property taxes that could choke a horse. Yeah, yeah, no state income tax! But NV has no state income tax and the property taxes are way easier on the wallet. A friend of mine moved out of Austin, TX 8 years ago to escape the high taxation and moved to Arkansas. She was in real estate and the biggest complaint she received from ex-Californians was the high property taxes.

Come on now! You're omitting AZ! Living in Tucson I meet up with a number of ex-Californians, even in my community. A great number also move to Phoenix and one of their favorite cities of all is Prescott!

No kidding...property taxes seem really low here in comparision to most major metros nationwide. Far, far lower than any I have lived in anyway.

In Harris county Texas I was paying somewhere north of three times my property taxes here...Texas has absurdly high property taxes, I have no clue why the state attracts so many out of state investors.

I try to do that myself, but then you are met with angry honks from the people behind you for not flooring it the second the light turns green. Lose-lose situation.

I can recommend West Virginia for you after west Texas. (Or perhaps they are about the same??)
lol, nice assumption but completely incorrect, I moved from UK to Vegas 8-9 years ago due to job. I didn't even think of making any money at all when I bought the house from foreclosure, I was just happy to get a nice house compare to houses in UK.

No not moving anywhere anymore after Texas, I already retired a year ago and the main reason for moving to Texas is to be closer to family thats all. I already picked out 10 acres for $60K, 10 minutes from the city. I moved too many times and this one will be a dream home.
