5 Reasons to Call Las Vegas Home

Are you or someone you know considering a move to Las Vegas? As local homebuilders, we can’t help but be a bit biased when we say Las Vegas is a wonderful place to call home. The nearly 3 million residents already living here would attest that among the great reasons to love the Las Vegas lifestyle are the one-of-a-kind attractions, world-class restaurants, sprawling communities, and hidden gems you will find here. In a city that has everything, it is hard to narrow down its most appealing features; however, we have provided a few reasons to consider Las Vegas as your next landing place.

Las Vegas Has a Low Cost of Living

Compared to other major cities throughout the country, Las Vegas’ low cost of living and no state income tax makes it a very desirable place to live, retire, or run a business. From gas and groceries to rent and home prices, lower costs in Las Vegas are great factors to think about before your next move. All the money you can save on taxes is especially attractive to first-time buyers looking to achieve their goal of homeownership The median home price in the west is $478,800, whereas the median price in Las Vegas was close to $340,000 in October. At Edward Homes Nevada, we build unique floor plans at affordable price points, and our communities are developed with today’s value-conscious homebuyer in mind.
