I'm looking into moving to Vegas from NY and wanted to know if anyone can help with which neighborhoods are good and which to stay away from. Looking to rent for now, will buy after I'm there a while. Been looking online at all of these places that seem really nice, but just want to make sure where to go when I come to look around. Also not looking to be more than a half hour drive from the strip. Thanks in advance for any assistance!!

Its always helpful to be a little more specific.

For example: How many : people in your family, bedrooms, baths, cars in garage or no garage.

Or: Gated community? Price range? What area of town will your work be? Are schools involved? Are pets involved?

People here can be very helpful when they know your preferences. Welcome.

Try searching this forum for the names of some of the places you've seen online. I mean this to be helpful -- you're asking what a hundred people have already asked, so there are a ton of great answers here already. Most people on this forum would suggest living in Green Valley or Summerlin, or so it seems. I live downtown and love it there...

Centennial Hills is also great, if you don't mind living out in BFE.

Crime in Las Vegas
Was really helpful to me.

Be careful renting houses, though. Don't want to get into a house that's being foreclosed!

Coming from NY where I'd expect that you're accustomed to some urbanness and nearby conveniences, I would recommend the "townhouse district", and older area of Las Vegas with lots of older townhouses built between the very late 60's and 70's. You'll find a number of these complexes east of the STrip, east of Eastern Avenue, South of Sahara and north of Tropicana. Take a look! I live in Greenbriar, and love all the "ubanness" of this area, no further than 6 blocks in any direction to 6 grocery stores.

Some of these older townhouses were very well-built, and in my complex, they built garages, back then, for big cars. In my garage I could park three small cars, it's that big! There's also Heritage South & North, Briarwood, Tiburon, Pecos Estates, The Colony, Sunrise Villas, Garden Park, along with others. And being here 13 years now I've never had any problems, always have felt safe.

that area is one of the nicest areas of Las Vegas, always reminds me of the urban East Coast with lots of shopping and restaurants too, i also agree that its safe...

Sunrise Villas and all its incarnations are supposedly very nice...

Sorry to bump an older post, but I didn't want to post a new one.

I just found some listings in the area of Sunrise Villas. Is this a nice, older area? Are there more like these houses in this "Townhouse District" and since it's older, is it age restrictive to 55+, or can any one buy in these areas.

Here is one I think is wonderful, but I'm worried about the price, it's very much in investor range, is there alot of flipping in these areas?

MLS 1133138: 3071 MIRADO CT Las Vegas NV 89121

Thanks
