Relocating to Nevada?
Whether you're retiring from the hustle and bustle of California, looking for a more affordable first-time home, or searching for a commutable location, Nevada has a lot to offer. The area itself is surrounded by growth, beauty, and excitement, and—thanks to plans for a new LA to Las Vegas high-speed train—you'll also be able to zip away to California at a moment's notice.
Curious about what life in Nevada has to offer? Here's what you need to know before you start your relocation journey.
Life in the Las Vegas Area
If you're searching for a more affordable alternative to California, then look no further than the Las Vegas area. Here, home prices are nearly one third of those in Los Angeles, and they're only predicted to rise by less than a percent over the next year. In LA, that number looks more like 2.5%. And it's not just the housing affordability—you'll also find that Las Vegas is home to some exciting growth and innovation, a bustling job market, and tons of things to explore in your free time.
Here's a quick look at the highlights.
With prices ranging from the low $100k range to well over several million, the Las Vegas area is perfect for home buyers of all kinds—whether it's your first time or you're a seasoned investor.
Still working in California or want to visit? A newly announced high-speed train will be able to take you from the Las Vegas Strip to California's Victor Valley region in just 75 to 90 minutes.
Hospitality, government, finances—if you're looking for a new job in Nevada, you'll have plenty of options. The largest employers in the state include MGM Resorts International, Las Vegas Sands, and the State of Nevada.
