    Moving out in May....moving to Summerlin...I haven't found anywhere nicer..if you are looking to rent, just use Zillow....the property contact info is always listed ...without a realtor, you can probably negotiate a better deal, as the realtor was going to get paid something !!

    I have just as good of luck renting out my rentals on Craig's list as I have had using rental realtor. If you are a good tenant you will have
    no problem. When you go to look make sure your car is clean. I judge a prospect on how they would take care of my house by how they
    treat their car. People with cars full of crap tend to be same who have dirty houses.

    Looks like our move is in motion ~ just sold the condo here so we're starting to pack up all the personal stuff we've accumulated in the last 12 years. Sold the place turnkey, so we don't have to bring a lot of big stuff! I think Summerlin is at the top of our list, but we haven't ruled out Henderson just yet. Anxious but excited! :woohoo:

    I always use a property management company.

    They are professionals and when something breaks they fix it right away. If its a private owner you sometimes have to beg them to do simple stuff and its a hassle.

    GMS5997... If you're still looking, one of my friends who lives in Vegas is a former realtor there, and I know she's very well-connected as far as currently practicing realtors, as well as current rental vacancies that may not be on the public market. Last I checked, she was selling one of the houses which she owns, and it's possible she may be willing to rent that to you. Could be worth having a discussion with her, even to feel out which neighbourhoods might be a good fit. PM me if you'd like me to put you in touch with her.

    Like all things their is good landlords and bad landlords. I always managed them myself and my tenants always told me I was much nicer to work with than management companies. Plus they want 6 - 10 percent of rent so that might make rent higher. I stop by my tenants houses much more than most management companies do.
