American West’s Guide to Relocating to Las Vegas

When people think of Las Vegas, they tend to envision casinos, glitzy hotels, and neon lights. But there is so much more to Las Vegas. After all, almost 2 million people live here, and most of them never go near The Strip! American West Homes is a born and bred local company. Las Vegas is as much our city as it is our homeowners.

Here are some things we want you to know if you’ll be joining us here:

1. Housing options. There are many options in the Las Vegas market when it comes to buying or renting. There are apartments, townhomes, older homes, new construction, and everything in between. Obviously, we recommend a brand new American West home.

2. Weather & Geography. One of the biggest perks of living in Las Vegas is its location. It’s an easy drive to California or Utah and an even shorter airline flight. Set within the Mojave Desert, Las Vegas can be hot and cold. On average, though, there are more than 300 days of sunshine. There’s no humidity. It is a dry heat and for those coming from humidity, you will notice the difference. And you’ll adapt by drinking lots of water and wearing sunscreen.

3. Cost of living. Surprisingly, Las Vegas has a very low cost of living. Housing is affordable, and there is no state income tax.

4. Livability. Las Vegas is a great place to live and raise a family. There are plenty of classic and contemporary suburban neighborhoods with parks, state-of-the-art schools and businesses. You’ll find churches, civic groups and kid-centric activities, too.

5. Things to do. What’s your pleasure? Hiking, boating & skiing… parks & gardens… food & drink… theatre & the arts… clubs & casinos… festivals & sporting events… You name it, you’ll find it here in Las Vegas.

6. A car is a must. While Las Vegas does have public transportation (The RTC), the sprawling nature of the city means that having a car might make traveling easier.

7. Travel. For those who like to hop on a plane, it doesn’t get any easier. McCarran International Airport is the 5th busiest airport in the U.S., moving approximately 48 million passengers a year, providing service to many destinations worldwide.

8. Diversity. In terms of both ethnicity and income, Las Vegas is a true melting pot. While there are native Las Vegans, many of the residents are transplants from somewhere else. An astonishingly diverse collection of people from all over the US and the world come to Las Vegas for work and play. It’s one of the reasons this city is so interesting!
