Re: What are the best/worst areas of Las Vegas to live in?

If the GVR zip helps, it is 89012. Go to LVRJ.com (Las Vegas Review Journal)/real estate and use that zip to window-shop your price ranges.
A little further out on Horizon Ridge, and still only about 20 minutes from Bellagio Valet Parking, is the 89002 Henderson zip where I first lived with some friends. Family-oriented...middle class...VERRRRRRRY quiet. You can pick-up a lot of square-footage (3,000+) right now for less than 300K. I can personally recommend the neighborhood around Kind Ave.
The nearby Saxby's coffee shop compliments the neighborhood with an unusual sense of community (for Vegas) and unlike Starbucks, Saxby's doesn't burn the flavor out of their coffee beans.
Good luck!

Green Valley Ranch is the name of the entire development and much of it is in 89012.

89052 and 89012 are both correct. 89012 is simply my preferential area.

Re: What are the best/worst areas of Las Vegas to live in?

Sorry for the ridiculous bump. I have very limited free time and am looking at a few places only when I go to buy a place. Is this area safe? It's doesn't have to be Bel Air, just a nice area: 6125 Daisy Petal Street 89130. Thanks for any help.

Re: What are the best/worst areas of Las Vegas to live in?

yup, that's a good area from what i can remember, very little crime. also, being close to 215 is a big advantage in this city.

for anyone who wants to check it out, here's a crime map provided by metro:

I prefer the Naked City area right behind the Stratosphere...reasonable rents and walking distance to all the good strip clubs..

Re: What are the best/worst areas of Las Vegas to live in?

Dollar for dollar you can't beat the nice neighborhoods in Green Valley and the newer parts of Henderson. Just get as close to the freeway as possible. Commutes will be a breeze, especially if you've lived in CA or NY. Stay away from North Las Vegas, not that it's bad way out north (past Craig), but it's just too far from the Strip. Look at the crime map and you should notice the amount of home burglaries in Summerlin. Way over rated area if you ask me. It's gonna go down hill eventually. Being close to GVR myself, I can say that that's the area I prefer the most. And I've lived in Vegas my whole life.

Re: What are the best/worst areas of Las Vegas to live in?

I don't remember seeing anything on this specific area, so I'll ask: what about along Arville between Trop and Spring Mountain? Basically behind the Rio and a couple blocks from "Chinatown". Lots and lots of apartment and condo complexes, and they LOOK okay. No obvious signs, like bars on every window and steel gates and grafitti everywhere. Prices seemed very reasonable too.

Good location for a renter. I thought you were asking about buying. That's what I get for not reading every post. This will put you close to all the action.

** There is some gang-like activity in that area, but nothin too crazy. It's a busy area.

Re: What are the best/worst areas of Las Vegas to live in?

I believe the OP did ask about buying, I sort of sidetracked it a bit since I was just through that area so much the past few days.

Wow, the crime map is very telling. Virtually no crime in the entire Green Valley Area and Summerlin is just littered with auto and home robberies. Says a lot. Unless peeps in SUmmerlin just have more cool stuff to steal.

I'm pretty sure nothing shows up in Green Valley because that is Henderson, so it's a different jurisdiction.
