Hello:

What's the best area for renting an apartment..??

Planning to move from Houston to LV in aprox. 6 months is just me and wife but will need extra space for the Family visits (very often specially the in-laws).

I own a house here but with the high price of Real State in LV I do not think I can afford one.

I would contact the Chamber of Commerce to see if they can send you the Apartment Guide. So many apartments have been converted to condos in the last couple of years. I would also check, once you find an apartment, to see if they are planning a conversion. I know several people who were told they had to vacate when their lease was up or try to qualify for a loan to purchase their apartment because it was being turned into a condo. Generally speaking though, decent areas tend to be southwest, northwest, Summerlin, Green Valley and Henderson. One thing to consider is we have no rent control here. So, even if you find a decent apartment, once your lease is up, they can raise your rent however high they want to. It's not like other areas where there is a maximum amount allowed. With that said, it would be beneficial to sign the longest term lease available so that your rent can't be raised within that time frame.

Stick to the Summerlin or Green Valley area. Stay clear of North Las Vegas and the NE and then the SE. Those are not good areas. Summerlin and Green Valley are nice.

STAY CLEAR OF NORTH VEGAS. THAT IS ONE THING I DO KNOW. CALL THE METRO POLICE ASK THEM FOR INFO ABOUT CRIME AND ETC. There is a reason why they call it SIN City!!!

Much Peace

There are a number of apartment guides available on the net. Google Vegas Apartments.

I also suggest you consider renting a condo. Generally better properties and the rents overlap the apartments. Except at the very bottom you do better with a condo.. Note also that you can rent small homes for less than the mortgage payments on buying one. Start at around $900 in nice areas.

As a general rule nice areas are outside the 215 or within a few miles of it. North Los Vegas is very nice north of Craig Road and generally a very good buy.
