    I can't speak about any of these apartments specifically, but I've lived in the area for 5+ years. I lived in Savannah apartments (Now, Milan - they do have 3 bed units (I had 2 bed 2 ba with garage) for two years to see how I liked the area - we previously lived on the west side for 10 years. Turns out I really liked the Silverado Ranch area 89183. I loved apt living. We had bug service included - only had the occasional cricket in the unit. Public areas would have waterbugs/roaches during the hottest part of summer. I really miss having maintenance available at my convenience. Light bulbs, air filters, etc were magically taken care of while I worked. Gym, heated pool year round, plus a second and two hot tubs.

    When it came time to buy, we stayed nearby and moved to 89052. Silverado/West Henderson is now booming. There have been 3 new apartment complexes that opened this year on St. Rose and another 2 or 3 currently under construction. Sprouts opens today, I believe. Costco in Nov. There will be a whole entertainment complex built by M Resort all bicycle friendly. Starr will have an exit on I15. Plus, all the activities the Raiders practice facility will spur. I'm sure traffic will worsen overtime, but planning definitely accounted for a decent start.

    My sister moved from Chicago 3 years ago and decided to stay nearby after living with me for a year. She is renting a townhome in 89123. Convenient to everything, but slightly older and less expensive.

    I've done all my home searches on my own. I've only hired realtors for the actual real estate transaction. When we decided to simplify and try apartment living, we looked at a dozen places between LV Blvd to St Rose, and it became clear to us, almost immediately, which were our style and a good fit. We had it down to two in one weekend.

    That rent is really cheap! Sq ft wise would be to big for us. We also are determined to rent an apartment. We sold our house two years ago and now live in an apartment.....it's soooo nice:)


    It all sounds so nice and convenient. Can't wait to check it out. I looove South Point.... so the area gets preference :)
    If we are going to buy house there some day remains to be determined. First we have to see how we like living there, especially with the heat in the summer and the bug/spider issues. I am sure the critters there are a lot more abundant than in good old...mostly cold and wet PA.


    Thank you all for the responses.

    We got back a couple of weeks ago from our last trip and I believe we found a place to live........if the timeline works out.
    I wrote a while back that we want to move next summer and so we looked at places. Has to be gated and an apartment. We very much liked "Summer Winds" and "Amalfi". Now we just have to hope that someone wants to move by spring so we get shot at it.
    Please keep your fingers crossed.

    Good luck to you! They look great and are next to each other and close to the strip yet safer than most!

    Thanks! We checked the crime map and it seems ok. I guess there are no guarantees anywhere.

    Nice apartments in an excellent location. I have friends that live in that area, it's a good choice. Convenient to South Point, too!

    Good luck and thanks for posting this. I have been looking at condo's to buy the last couple of days. I found a couple I was really interested in, but then when I saw how little they were renting for, I changed my mind quickly. Since I am not positive exactly where I want to retire, I am just going to rent, at least for a couple years. This just reaffirmed my decision. They look really nice.

    Good luck for finding something nice!
    We liked the places we looked at. It's just a question if they have something available when we are ready to move.

    I found a couple really nice condo's, 2/2 for about $179k in a gated community with resort like setting and low HOD's. I think they were in Summerlin. Then I noticed the rent was only $850. Lol, I do not need the headache of trying to rent it out until I am ready to move for that little. Will always keep my condo in Seattle, so when I get ready to move I will be in a good position to take my time to find a place. I would even be happy in an extended stay or VRBO while I look.

    A year ago I would have said buy and don't rent it out just use it for vacations. The price appreciation would more than offset expenses. Now I'm not so sure, inventory is way up and prices are leveling off if not declining.

    Moving sooner than next year June / July. Now I have to start over with the search. Any recommendations for apartment complexes?
    Please! No we don't want a realtor.
    I rather hear from peoples experiences. Thank you!
