Sheep Range

Sheep Range, Nevada is just north of Las Vegas and is surrounded by 9,000 Ft mountains.  Part of the Desert National Wildlife refuge, the area is home to many thrill-seekers and bird-watchers alike, and extends from the Spring Mountains in the Northeast along the Las Vegas Valley with its' center the Las Vegas Wash,  a breath-taking 12-mile long channel of water.  The area offers over 6,500 different properties with a variety of eye candy surrounding it and it is a great investment if you want to be as close to the city as the desert.

Tule Springs

One of the more developed and expansive areas of the Mojave Desert, Tule Springs' lakes have created an Oasis that is quite an interesting ecosystem.  Native Americans made the area home Pre-Columbus and parts were designated as historical archaeological sites with buildings that exist still today.  The location was once a hot-spot for those looking to move to the state because of the easy divorce proceeding and now is being petitioned to be considered an 'Ice Age' park to protect the 23,000 acres it is spread across and make it a national park.  The area has several beautiful properties to invest in with stunning desert and mountain views and all the amenities you need to call it home.

The Las Vegas Real Estate Market

The favorite refrain of visitors to Las Vegas is, “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas,” but for residents of Sin City, the town offers all the amenities that one comes to expect from a major metropolitan area.  While the town remains a popular tourist destination point, in the past few decades have witnessed the desert city transformed into a popular choice for setting up residence as well.

Shopping and Dining
Gambling on the world famous Las Vegas Strip is not the only draw to Las Vegas, and for those who tire of the bright lights and ringing bells of the casino floor, there are any number of shopping and dining opportunities in town to satisfy visitors and locals alike.  For great deals on designer and named-brand fashions and goods, the Las Vegas Premium Outlet Mall, located at 875 Grand Central Parkway, features over 150 retail outlets offering discounts up to 65% on a daily basis on such name brands as Banana Republic, Kenneth Cole, Nike, St. Johns, and many more.  Of course, for those who don’t wish to stray too far from the Strip, The District in the MGM Grand offers a unique and fun shopping experience that is unlikely to be experienced outside Las Vegas.  Additionally, The Crystals at City Center, located at 3720 Las Vegas Boulevard, is 500,000 square foot shopping and dining extravaganza. 

Parks and Recreation
While known widely for its adult entertainment venues, fewer people are aware of the great outdoor activities that are readily available for Las Vegas residents.  Nearby Lake Mead is a popular draw for area residents for year round recreational opportunities that include boating, hiking, fishing, photography, and sightseeing excursions.  Additionally, Clark County Parks and Recreation Department manages more than 1,600 acres of parks, pools, open spaces, as well as recreation and senior centers designed to meet the recreational needs of Las Vegas.

Living
With median housing prices in the mid-$160,000s, ending the fourth quarter 2013, these figures represent a 2.5% jump from the previous quarter, and a 27.3%, per square foot, rise from the same period last year.  Some of the more popular neighborhoods within the city include: Spring ValleyDesert ShoresAnthem (located in nearby Henderson), Summerlin, and highrises in downtown Las VegasMountains Edge, and Southern Highlands.

An unknown jewel in the Las Vegas neighborhood crown includes Meadows Village.  Meadows Village lies close to Rancho Charleston and is one of the smallest neighborhoods in the city.  Quiet and peaceful compared to the rest of Sin City, Meadows Village residents won’t need to travel more than a mile to the nearest grocery store or shopping options.      

Schools, Health, and Transportation
The Clark County School District, the largest in Nevada and the fifth largest in the nation, serves the educational needs of more than 300,000 students.  Indeed, the district has witnessed impressive growth in the past two decades as increasingly larger numbers of families have moved to the area.  Several bond issues were approved by Las Vegas voters in the 1990s to aid in the building of more school to meet this rising demand

The health needs of the community are met by a variety of hospitals, medical centers, and clinics in the area.  Sunrise Hospital is Las Vegas’ largest acute care department and is well respected member of the medical community.  Spring Valley Hospital ER Reserve program lets you schedule an emergency room visit for your less than critical health needs.  Why wait around in an emergency room for nine hours when you can schedule a time to see the physician.

While transportation in Las Vegas is best conducted by car, the city does offer a bevy of transportation options designed to get you from Point A to Point B.  Citizen Area Transit (CAT) operates a fairly efficient mass transportation network, while the famed Las Vegas monorail is ideal for scenic, resort to resort travel.  The I-15 bifurcates the city and international travel is just a short cab ride to the McCarran International Airport.
