    Hi everyone,

    I found this forum and am hoping some of you can help me. I am guy who lives in Miami who is hoping to move to Las Vegas this summer.

    I've looked at hundreds of apartments online, most have bad reviews for roaches, crime, etc.

    I have reached out to some real estate agents.

    Beyond Sumerlin and Henderson, what are some the same neighborhoods with 1 room apartments that are decent and a person can live in? If you have any complex suggestions, would appreciate it. Want to keep the monthly rent around $750.

    Not to persuade you, but I just went through the apartment looking process and was looking for a 1 bedroom as well. I am in Henderson and pay $838 for what I feel is a really nice one bedroom. It's bigger than my 2 bedroom from where I used to live. It's clean, feels very secure and is not far from the 215. I originally looked closer in to the action in Vegas and never felt real comfortable for what I was looking at and at what price that would be. If I recall correctly, there were a couple decent complexes in North Vegas, just north of the Cannery, one was on Losee if I'm not mistaken. It wasn't far from the 15 and seemed like a better part of North Vegas. I wasn't really interested in that part of town, so I didn't give it serious thought, but I remember being positively surprised at a couple of the complexes there. Sorry I don't have more information. Good luck with your search!

    Rancho del Sol is an older complex, but the price is right and the location cannot be beat. It will come in under budget. My brother has lived there over two years now. I have a friend Camden Cove that is probably in the same price range, and Bella Vita condo has units in that range too.

    Hey guys,

    Thank you so much. I will look into those. Can you guys tell me anything about where this complex is located. I asked a friend who lives here and he said it was a decent/ok area. Analysis appreciated:

    The address is: 2800 S. Eastern Ave Las Vegas, NV 89169

    I think that area would be a little iffy. Check the crime stats. http://www.crimemapping.com/map/nv/lasvegas

    What type of transportation will you have? Do you need to be on a bus line?

    Checking crime rates is always a good place to start. My experience with the area is limited to driving through and dining at nearby restaurants. I would agree that it's iffy. There are nice homes, nearby, on the golf course. The trouble with the area is there are pockets of good and bad. That complex may very well be close enough to Sahara to be ok. Twain is pretty shady. Before Eastern started construction, I used it to go downtown from Silverado Ranch area. I have no issue using it as a thoroughfare but that doesn't give a fair assessment of the neighborhood. While location is close to the strip, it's not the most convenient location because it's congested. There's heavy traffic and the busses slow it down. You have to go through not so nice areas to come and go. I would check it out in person during the day and night to get a feel for it.

    try roomster.com too... it's a different site, you pay a fee if you want to answer an ad, but it's reasonable for the shortest time ($15). you pick from rooms in houses or apts as a roommate situation and there are also independent places to rent.

    Vegasbound,

    Would you consider Rancho Del Sol a safe place for a guy with his cat? Is it quiet enough, etc? It's so close to everything. Safety living thoughts. What has your brother said about living there?

    I would not be comfortable at Cambridge. The complex itself might be ok, but Twain is really shady in that area. I don't mind going to Harry's Bagelmania during the day, but at night it's like the walking dead.

    He's been happy at Rancho del Sol. He moved in before units came with washer/dryer. That's the only reason he'd like to move, but it's too pricey to go elsewhere. His friend moved in too a year ago. He's decided to sign another lease. My brother did have two mopeds stolen. The first was not chained, the second was and they cut right through - this is common all over the valley. Once he bought a car, his troubles ended. There is night security and it is gated, but like all complexes both are a false sense of security. It deters crime, but doesn't prevent it. He has a dog that he walks at all hours, he once reported a suspicious person, and there are homeless rummaging through the trash on occasion. But that's to be expected given the proximity to the strip. That said, it pretty quiet, neighbors say hi and most are casino workers so people come and go at all hours. It's tucked away so many people don't even know it exists - it's funny my husband's uncle lived there in the 80's. Like I said before, the price and location is hard to beat. Maintenance is good about responding to issues too. Surrounding neighborhoods, while older, are safe. At least, I consider them safe.

    I thought I was going to be able to fix you up with a 1 bed condo where we live. Used to have several available from $650 to $750, now nothing. I'll ask the manager if there is anything he knows of.

    We are farther away from strip so transportation can be an issue but reduces some other problems.

    Freemont is out. Spoke with a friend. What are your thoughts on this one guys? I was told it's closer to Summerlin which makes it a good area.

    I agree the condo on Russell is a good area. The apt on Flamingo is by UNLV. It wouldn't be my first choice, but the area is better than over by Twain. I'd check it out in person day and night to see how you feel about the area. The apt on DI is in a less desirable part of the west side, but I personally prefer it to those you mentioned on the east side. No experience with either complex, however.
