Hi there, I have been looking at homes for sale in Clark County for a long time. However I cannot find anything decent (i'm talking about a safe area) for under 250k. In a safe area, such as 89144, townhomes that are 10-20 years old are still for sale at around 250k. Houses are going to be more than 280k. Yes you can find a lot of 100k ish houses in 89115 but I prefer to survive to see tomorrow's sunshine. I don't want to live in an area with daily shooting news reported in local news...

So where is the absolutely cheapest cheapest area or zip code or location I can scout for townhomes/ houses in the entirety of Clark County besides 89144?

Clark County is a big area. The farther out from Las Vegas you go, the less expensive it gets. Overton still has some decent places in the $250K range. Moapa, Logandale, maybe Indian Springs if you don't mind living way out there.

Your budget is too low.

Double your budget to $500K. There are many affordable houses in the sub-$500K range.

Try west of Rainbow in the NW. There are 177 for sale under $250,000. Even some relatively new in Centennial. And at least a 100 are under $200,000. There are some things to be aware of...but most of the tracts are reasonably safe.

You spend $530 a month on rent, complain at every turn about how expensive it is in Vegas and now you want to buy a home?

What is your plan to qualify for a loan and make mortgage payments? I commend you if you can pull that off...

I right now use tricare reserve select, but in a couple of years I won't be eligible anymore so I will seriously consider the Nevada Health Link.

Yeah... I just drove to Van Wagenen Street in Henderson today, months ago there was a Townhouse I really liked for sale at $119000. And Thank god I did not make any rash decisions. The illusion of home ownership is sweet and nice, but imagine paying 250 a month in HOA fees, 200 a month to Nevada Energy, Southwestern Gas and Las Vegas Valley Water District; paying yearly property taxes (nothing for Nevada which is good); and share a wall with other potentially sketchy neighbors who might blast bass heavy hip hop music all day long.

I will not be buying a 50 year old lead paint home that comes with a myriad of repair bills and stuff. Renting my tiny room for 530 a month makes me super happy. Spending 250k on a wooden cardboard box for the privilege of paying overpriced HOA fees for them to waste on watering trees is not my cup of tea.

Sure sounds like someone moved into town and decided to get annoyed at everything through posts on here.

Yeah that "box" may seem expensive but those with a little more income than you can buy it with a mortgage that including most of those costs is less than the going cost of rent in an equivalent box. The cost of that townhouse or a rental has nothing to do with what you think it's worth. It costs as much as the market is willing to pay for it and thats largely a function of how much income potential buyers can make. Your opinion of what's a fair rent or a fair cost of living in Las Vegas is completely irrelevant.

Sounds like you have no understanding of home ownership. I ask again, how do you expect to pay mortgage payments? How do you expect to even qualify for a mortgage?
