I have been searching for rentals in Vegas the last few weeks. What I have noticed is the prices seem on par around town with the exception of the strip being a bit more and northwest around rainbow road being cheaper.

Dose this sound like an accurate view of things in your city?

I have also looked at a couple different crime maps in Vegas. Crime seems to be spread out evenly with the exception of more robberies just east of the strip.

In your Local experience what parts of the city would you stay away from when looking for housing?

On Padmapper.com, you can overlay the crime map right on top of the rental map!

It's in the "super-secret advanced features section" of the filters

Crime is not remotely uniform. It varies over a thousand to 1 by zip code. And below that crime occurs on the arterials and in commercial zones.

Generally avoid the NE quadrant and the strip and nearby...that mostly works.

There is a thread with this exact same title that is fairly recent. Use the search feature so we can avoid all the "anything that isnt summerlin or henderson" conversation again.

I don't understand why all these "where should I live" threads aren't just merged. [mod cut-- comment on moderation] Why not also merge the daily "where should I live" thread?

Hell, we could have TWO threads: 1) "Where should I rent?" and 2) "Where should I buy a house?"

All of the "where should I live" threads fall into one of those categories. Even the ones that start out, "I've searched and read everything, but nothing really applies to this bog-standard question I'm about to ask."

Interesting - Unfortunately it appears to work only for Metro. So it does not report in Henderson or NLV.

One more thing to be aware of...it is taking a variable with about a 2000 to 1 range and compressing it into a go/no go. A simple change of threshold by a factor of two would vastly change the zones covered.

That's not as simple as it sounds, as there are some variations depending on someone's specific situation, and people will end up weeding through a lot of information that doesn't apply to them on a really long thread, or two threads, which may or may not stay on the front page. Those are among the reasons why the city forums here all don't have general moving threads like that.

When I have some time, I'll look at some of the threads and see if there's a way to simplify this issue at least partially.

Well, it would have the effect of giving new users a jumping-off point to read up on the area. That way, when they inevitably hit the "new thread" button, there's a slightly better chance of them asking something more specific than "where are the nice areas?"

When you get down too it, the bulk of the threads are variations on "where are the nice areas."
