    What is the price range of homes in Henderson NV.? What are the property taxes also. Anyone know what you can get in Del Webb retirement community? Size & Price. Thinking of moving there in about 18 months. Thanks, in advance. Texas Lar.

    Dunno about Henderson but I heard from a ReMax guy here in town that Vegas had some really good deals on condos and patio homes-------they over built and the run is kinda over is the word he had. You might want to explore some of the sites on the web from that area thru the various real estate companies.

    FWIW: On the news yesterday, Las Vegas has one of the highest foreclousure rates in the country.

    My mother had lived in Sun City LV until she relocated back to Chicago last year - really nice set up - I wish I had been 55 to buy her place and keep it for the future.

    I think her 2br/2BA went for $300+K, Taxes were @$1800.

    Its a buyers market and that is nationwide from the news I have been getting ... I almost bought a new home in Las Vegas about 9/10 years ago, the cost then was $150,000 and now the same home would cost almost 3 times that if you can find a buyer who can qualify for the loan ... I just made an offer on a home for a rental across the street from my house, the banks is holding the paper in the amount of $240,000 and has it offered for $200,000 and cannot get a qualified buyer ... I offered them $175,000 and would not be surprised if I don't get it based on the fact they are not getting any offers on it ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Texas Lar . . . I also live in Las Vegas. The previously mentioned price ranges for Del Webb communities are pretty accurate for houses from about 1200 sq. feet to 2000 sq. feet. Property taxes on these size homes average about $175.00 per month. Del Webb communities are well planned and are very nice neighborhoods. They have also just opened a new Del Webb community in Mesquite, Nevada. Mesquite is about 85 miles noth of Las Vegas on Intersatae 15. Southern Nevada is a great place to live, play and shoot.

    You could always check out http://www.delwebb.com and see all the current communities nationwide along with the area around Las Vegas and also even see current inventory of homes and home models that are available per community in the area.

    Everybody, thanks for taking the time & replying for me!!! We moved from the socialist republic of Ca. after 25+ years there. We came to Texas when our son was going to Iraq. We wanted to be by our daughter-in-law & our grandkids whom we hadn't seen very much as our son is career military.

    We're now thinking in about 18-24 months of going to Vegas. That new shooting complex will be done then. Plus our younger son in Ca. just got married a year ago & new grandkids are going to be coming in about 3 years. So we want to be closer to them. 5 hour drive from Vegas.

    Plus grandma & grandpa are wanting to live where it will be best for us in our final years. After living in the greatest pro-gun state Texas, I would never live in CA. anymore. Vegas is going to be great with that new shooting complex. Plus oh, by the way, I do like casinos. Thanks, for all your help again & sorry for this long thread. Texas Lar

    Texas Lar,

    If you are in Vegas looking at buying a home, you might want to check out what is available in Pahrump, NV which is about 45 minutes NW of Vegas. A lot of active retirees are finding that to be more to their liking than Vegas. Either way you will probably enjoy living in Nevada.

    I'd focus on smaller communities that are within your tolerance for driving distance to Vegas....Bob Dodd

    Thanks, again for more ideas!

    BMC= Texas is great!! Problem is they don't have casinos. Like about almost everything in Texas except for that. When we first got here the heat in the summer was hard to take after CA's weather. But you do kinda get used to it.Plus that's what AC is for. People are really great, gas atleast 50 cents a gallon cheaper than CA. Home prices 1/3 of what I sold the same home for in CA.
    In the top 3 if not the tops in 2nd Amendment rights. Plus we have Ted Nuggent living 45 miles north of me.

    Wolfram, great idea. Will check it out on our annual trip to Vegas in January. Never looked before for homes, just went straight to the casino. Now we are serious about moving there.
    BDodd= Also great idea. I agree with that a 100%.

    TL, I was in Austin a few weeks ago during the tail end of all of that rain....man it was sticky! I've liked mid to south western Texas and have it at the top of my list should I ever depart the communist Republik of Kaleefornia. I don't gamble so having no casinos wouldn't worry me...lol. All I need is a good trap range close by, a place to hunt and fish regularly and a means for a steady income and I'd be set. I'd learn to deal with the humidty I guess.
