Las Vegas, Spanish for " The Meadows"

Las Vegas  is the 28th-most populated city in the United States, the most populated city in the State of Nevada, and the county seat of Clark County. The city anchors the Las Vegas Valley metropolitan area and is the largest city within the greater Mojave Desert. Las Vegas is an internationally renowned major resort city, known primarily for its gambling, shopping, fine dining, entertainment, and nightlife. The Las Vegas Valley as a whole serves as the leading financial, commercial, and cultural center for Nevada. And for those sports enthusiasts, Las Vegas is now the home of the NFL Raiders and NHL Golden Knights. Boxing and UFC is also synonymous with the Las Vegas name; UFC headquarters are located in the city and Vegas is known to be the mecca for boxing.

Scattered throughout the Las Vegas Valley are various master planned communities for those who cherish the rich suburban lifestyle. These areas are distinguished by the tremendous number of amenities and conveniences they offer local residents. Because of their sheer size, master planned communities can incorporate extensive recreational amenities like lakes, golf courses, expansive parks with bike paths, and jogging trails.

Most master planned developments are a coalition of many different builders. One important benefit of this 'multi-developers' concept is there is almost always a wide variety of building styles, floorplans, lots sizes, landscaping styles, and pricing options throughout each community.

Whether you're looking for a quiet suburban neighborhood or a high profile high rise on the Strip, Las Vegas will accommodate your needs. The affordable homes around the valley offers virtually every amenity you could want making finding your desert dream home a breeze.
