Splitting hairs at this point. Averages reflect only that. Some days it's cooler in Summerlin, some days it's cooler in Anthem. When it's hot, it's hot.

The place I paid 22,000 for in 11-2009 Phoenix now rents for 1200 pm. The place I paid 35,400 for in Summerlin in 1-2009 rents for 800 (smaller at 540 sf vs, 702 sf). The Summerlin area is almost no comparison nicer than the North Central Phoenix hood. Job market is likely better in PHX, but not that much better.

Practically they are about the same. A degree or so difference is lost in the noise.

Vegas is pretty much uniform with a small difference driven primarily by altitude.

currently the job market would be much better in Phoenix.. it is nonexistent in Vegas. Vegas has a lot of 10-15 per hour jobs... why go back to work if unemployment is paying you 80% of that and you can stay home?

Did you look at your own data? Most compare the highs since the lows are overnight and not when most are active. Your data shows Anthem warmer - every single month - by 1-4 degrees every month. Anthem is also quite a bit lower elevation and would expect to be warmer.

Summerlin/Anthem average highs
Jan 57/58
Feb 61/64
Mar 70/72
Apr 77/80
May 87/89
Jun 99/101
Jul 103/105
Aug 100/102
Sep 93/95
Oct 79/83
Nov 66/68
Dec 55/56

Where are you seeing Summerlin is warmer? The advantage is being cooler anyway since the biggest effect of being warmer is in the summer.

Sorry but low temperatures are measured based on the overnight low.

This is climate data. How likely is a freeze? How bad a freeze?

Developing a new metric to prove an incorrect point is a move the goalpost stunt.

And not getting it right cost me a prized ficus benjamina a couple of decades ago.

And once again the problem with the comparison is a vast difference in size.

Basically the two areas are climatically similar. Not enough difference to worry about.

Digging a little further it gets more interesting. Summerlin itself claims to be cooler than any other area in the Vegas Valley.

There are lots of funny numbers...claims that Summerlin ranges from 3500 to 4400 feet. Which is utter nonsense. Sun City Summerlin for instance maxes around 3,000 ft in the SW corner near the 215 and Summerlin Parkway. And that is not the low point. The Pueblo tops around 2500 feet. The Adelson estate is across the street from the Pueblo and would get no higher than 2700 feet or so.

Sorry - it was you who changed the goal post - most of us were talking average highs - only you were talking lows and apparently without letting anyone else know. Nowhere did you indicate that you were referencing cold temps- nobody looks ONLY at cold temps especially when almost never freezes. It is as likely to freeze the same at either location - that is NOT averages which is what was being discussed. When picking a place it is what normally see that is important not the outlier data point.

In both areas, these are the top of the top, almost all the homes in the area are below that in elevation.
When I visit Vegas, I completely avoid The Strip and make use of my rental car for services in suburban Vegas. (Have relatives who live in Vegas and some gave me recommendations for local places which are much cheaper than the stuff on The Strip.)

For instance, I prefer Downtown Summerlin over Fashion Show Mall and pump gas at the Costco nearby. I admire Summerlin's newness, but the elevation drop on the inbound Summerlin Parkway gets me every time! My ears pop like crazy as I'm driving (visiting from sea-level Houston) down to the Valley floor. Oddly my ears aren't affected as I drive up The 215 on the way there.

Anthem was the hot spot for Vegas residents 20 years ago (dated IMO compared to Summerlin), but at least my ears don't pop like crazy when I visit relatives in the area.
