    Money vs. MONEY

    There are advantages to living in a high-rise. Safety, turn-key lifestyle, on-location amenities.
    With those come a price. The HOA dues are high, parking is sometimes limited, and high purchase price. big MONEY

    I have found that some comparable properties in single family homes can be found for the same money. Seems every location worth investigating has an HOA, the real question is the financial stability of the HOA, and future
    expenses coming up from the HOA and any future "special assessments" that may come up.

    Everybody has different comfort levels, but, if I could afford it, I would live in 1 Queens Ridge in a NY minute.

    parking isnt a problem they have valet and you also have asigned parking spots

    actually zilliow isnt for the strip the best,

    the best way is to figure out wich building you want and then search inventorty there are only around 6 strip properties so u have to do the initail leg work

    best way is to find a major brokers site as they all have the same listings you can search by condo name thats the easist.

    i can suggest a brokers site no i dont work for or used them they just have an easy way way to see what is available by each building to buy and rent or u can google one

    Live in as in Rental, or Live in as in own?

    Either one can be answered on realtor.com. put in your criteria that you are interested in seeing condo's only, and put your price criteria of at least $350,000.

    There is another website. VegasVertical.com this one belongs to a real-estate group and you have to register etc… but they do have a great showing of high rises and plenty of photos and availabiilities

    Seriously. Compared to NYC condos, even the luxury ones on and near the Strip are incredibly inexpensive. That's the biggest thing about NYC real estate, it completely skews your view of what's "normal".
