Arrow What Are the Best Zip Codes and Neighborhoods of Vegas?

Hello everyone. My family and I might move out of LA and I like Vegas because I like warm weather and the homes are cheap, big, and have pools. Everything is new as well. I either like really old or really new.

So what are the best neighborhoods or zip codes for a family to live safely with good schools in a home under 1mil with 3 beds and 2baths? Having things to do nearby such as large malls or a city with its own downtown would be nice, because Vegas doesn't really have a family friendly downtown area.

Thanks for any help.

89044 and 89052 are my personal favorite areas. Both in Henderson.

Above half a million...

89012.89052, 89044, 89135,89138,89134, 89129, 89149

While 89131 and 89143 are very nice they lack the bigger more expensive tracts.

I live in 89138 and its beautiful (Summerlin: The Vistas)
Go to the summerlin site and you can see a map of the different communities:
http://www.summerlin.com/life/ and towards the bottom of the page you can see "interactive map". It will tell you a lot.

Summerlin.com is a good source to get a feel for the area, but don't trust the homefinder on there (they don't have many listings up).

You'd be better off finding a Summerlin neighborhood you like, then going to a different real estate site to find homes there.

Not entirely true with regards to 89131. There are quite a few tracts out here that push the $1mm mark.

That being said, between $500K and $1mm will pretty much give you pick of the litter, regardless of location unless you are looking at fully custom homes in country club areas. The best schools in Vegas or Henderson are in the 89135, 89014, and 89074 zip codes. 89131 has some very good schools as well. Any of these areas is extremely safe and family friendly. Which of these specific zip codes to go with will depend on commute preference, locality to shopping preference, preferred "status" of the neighborhood (if that is an issue), etc.

I heard Summerlin and Henderson are the best areas, but I just wanted to make sure.

So are there places to hang out around those two areas for my children or for me and my wife to go out a few times a month? I don't want to have to go to The Stirp for everything.

Well, coming from LA, no commute is bad for me, but I will be working from home anyways. My wife is a nurse, but hopefully if we move to Vegas, she won't have to work. But, then again, we are still getting an expensive home.

Also, coming from LA, we will want the high end shopping malls withing reasonable distance, places that have stores that sell the skater apparel for my two sons and the ones that sell Victoria's Secret, Juicy, etc. for my daughter. You can take the you out of LA, but you can never take the LA out of you. So, to answer your other point, yes, status will be an issues, as it always will be with someone coming from LA. LOL. Sorry, if I sound snobby, but I just need to find an area where me and my family will fit in.
