A recent John Burns article predicted what they call the “Great American Move,” as an influx of city dwellers flocking to the suburbs. We already see this in the Las Vegas Valley, the city of suburbs. Relocating to a new city can be intimidating, but you can make it a smooth transition with a bit of planning. Please keep reading for our tips on starting the home buying journey before moving to Las Vegas.
Consider Your Home Options
Townhomes are a fantastic option for urbanites accustomed to a maintenance-free lifestyle. Edward Homes Nevada is a boutique builder offering curated townhome communities across the Las Vegas Valley. Our homes are built with quality, functionality, and affordability in mind. Located near the best shopping, dining, and outdoor recreational activities, we build homes to fit your lifestyle needs.
Consider Your Timeline
When it comes to how far in advance you should start planning, there is no right answer for everyone. Even if you have children who need to finish out their school year, the earlier you strategize, the better! The Las Vegas housing market is hot, so a tremendous advantage to looking at new home communities is that you can reserve your floor plan and lock-in early bird pricing far in advance. You don’t have to worry about falling in love with a home online to have it quickly come off the market. You ensure your dream home is waiting for you when you arrive.
Find a Neighborhood
Many families relocate to Las Vegas because of our lower cost of living but have a hard time deciding on a community right for them. Consider some of these questions to narrow down the location of where you would like to live.
- Do I want to live in a gated community?
- What school will my child be zoned for?
- Will I have an easy commute to work?
- Are there parks and outdoor amenities nearby?
