Hi guys I just moved to Vegas, I am looking for a house! I have been looking everywhere and if you guys can help me find my dream home that will be awesome! I can live anywhere it doesn't have to be limited to a certain area, I am kinda semi-retired. So which area is best bang for the buck? I am looking for a safe, good above average neighborhood, big lot so there are some distance and privacy between me and the neighbors, maybe 11k sq ft and more. I would prefer the house to be newer like 1998 and newer. Close to shopping and stores, like within 15,20 min. my budge is around 270k to 340k Is it good idea to get a house where it dropped the most in prices? maybe there are a lot of empty houses around and the area is turning into s**t. When you guys get a used house do you pay attention to who was builder? or if you get a good inspector then it's ok? They usually don't provide that information. One of the houses I really like is in Aliante, the builder is KB home, now I heard KB home they ain't too good as a builder. But I really like the house the owner seems to have done a good job maintaining it and kept it in pretty good shape. However you don't know about the places you can't see in the house so I will have two inspectors to check out the house if I buy it. But I bet there will be some problems inspectors can't see so what do you guys say? KB home don't buy it? it was built in 2003. Inspectors can't see everything and Aliante even thought it's a good area, it's surrounded by crappy ghetto areas right? They might influence Aliante more than the other way around. thanks guys for the help!
