Yup, that was someone else. Currently I have a studio appt. And I'm fine with it. I have a big ass TV, a bed, and a computer, that's (basically) it. 1 BR would be fine, even another studio. I wouldn't mind if it was a little bigger than my current one though.

You will have no problem finding a place then. It come down to convince.

I'm thinking about moving to Las Vegas also. Real estate is much more affordable there than here in San Diego. Taxes - both income and property - are significantly lower too.

Now if only the weather was better in the summer it would be paradise :D

We are looking to relocate very soon to the Henderson [probably] area.

Hope this question is ok, but can anyone recommend a good Realtor in that area? Respond on a pm would be good.

Also the extended stay near Boulder was mentioned as being ok then I think it was mentioned it was sketchy. I may be interested in something as was said for a month or three while looking for a permanent place.

I'm inclined toward 55 plus community, no stairs. Quiet enough to sleep once in a while would be great too, low crime etc.

If anyone is looking for a Good Realtor. I do in fact know one. He is a very good AP as well. He has sold to some high profile poker players/AP's. He is very honest and not pushy to his buyers, he has been doing it for about 14 years. He will even cut his commission down significantly. PM me if you are interested.

You will have no problem finding a nice one bedroom apartment 800 to 1000 sq feet in a nice neighborhood for $800 a month. It will all come down to convenience for you.

The effective property tax in Vegas is usually closer to 1.00% compared to nearly 3% in Texas.

Orange County can get close to the 3% with Mello-Roose payments, but most California properties are also 1% to 1.25%.

When interest rates are this low, the property taxes can make a big difference in the carrying costs.

Just an FYI to consider if you aren't familiar. I think I pay $3,000 per year in property taxes for a $300,000 home in general. In Texas you might pay $5,000 per year for a $160,000 to $180,000 home. Northern California, $5,000 a year might be a $450,000 home. IE: property taxes are easier to pay here in Nevada for the same home as a general rule. This might matter more if you have good credit and/or don't have a big loan amount.

I had a home in Orange County that cost me about $20,000/year in taxes and Mello Roos. Not fun!!!

Aaron, this is what -- percentage of assessed value? So you'd be right at 1% but the Northern CA is slightly over 1% and TX is a gouge. Is there also a property tax on vehicles? Any softeners like over 65 or Veteran's exemptions in Nevada?

And sunscreen and bottled water. Hopefully not at $4 a pop.

I have one year left of law school and want to get the hell out of Ohio, and since the gaming industry is at the top of my list, Vegas is my dream. I've heard that the only way to break into the legal profession in Vegas is as a public defender, but I'm not sure that person knew what they were talking about.

The fact that the summers are hot doesn't bother me that much; it's hot and humid in the summers here, and after the winter this year, I'll take 100 degrees day after day over not being able to get out of my driveway because of some unholy snow/ice/slush combo.

It's windy because the temperature differential in the desert is so large between night and day, and you don't usually have any clouds to hold in the heat. All the pavement and parking areas, along with all the cars producing heat, and the AC from everywhere exhausting heat, makes it even hotter than if it were pure desert. Hot air rises, relatively cooler air comes in from the sides to replace it, gets air moving. Further affected by the terrain, with the mountains just west of LAS, and prevailing westerlies/southwest air flow during summer, the air coming over the top of the mountains helps the air mass roll with the thermals. Nighttime the process reverses, with uneven cooling.

Contact Brandon; his info is on the banner ad on the Diversity Tomorrow page. He's built a successful solo practice in Las Vegas.

I also met with Bob Nersesian while I was there. He didn't say he was hiring, but it was good to meet with him. We had dinner at the El Cortez.

Wind, rain, temperature, ... whatever? People do indeed complain about Las Vegas being windy and some bingo-fanatics probably look at the weather reports before deciding which Bingo Room will get their business that morning since wind and early-morning attendance levels are often correlated.

However, there is one factor about wind that you should perhaps be aware of. There are several sites around the world where health researchers have identified an extremely high number of people living into their late 90s. Now of course there are a great many factors. Genetics, founder effect, rural lifestyle, exercise, diet, etc. However one factor, usually unnoticed by researchers, is the areas always seem to have high winds that blow microbes out of people's homes and out of their bedding.

Yep, an unusual factor not often looked at in aging: wind speed!!

For those wishing additional information:

THE BLUE ZONES


In 2004, Dan Buettner has collaborated with National Geographic and the best researchers on the longevity of the world to identify areas of the world where people lived better . These areas were called "blue zones" : here people reach and exceed 100 years.

The 5 blue zones :

Barbagia , Sardinia region in the highlands of Sardinia mountainous interior with the highest concentration in the world of male centenarians .
Ikaria , Greece: Aegean Island with one of the lowest rates in the world of mortality in middle-aged and lower rates of dementia.
Nicoya Peninsula , Costa Rica: lowest percentages in the world of mortality in middle-aged , second in the world for the highest concentration of centenarians males.
Loma Linda , California: home to the largest community of Seventh-Day Adventists : live 10 years longer than their North American counterparts .
Okinawa , Japan: women over 70 are the most long-lived people in the world.

Anytime that I visit Vegas I get nose bleeds when I blow my nose. I assume this is because of the dry air and I come from a pretty humid place. Is that normal for others, and do locals get over it if it is normal?

I would NOT consider that normal in any way. I think there are too many people flying in from Washington and Oregon, fairly humid places, who do not complain of nose bleeds for that to be normal. Perhaps you are underestimating the amount of water you need to ingest in Las Vegas even if you are inside in the air conditioning. Remember also, your flight starts out in a very dry dehydrating atmosphere. There is evidence that the high breast cancer rates among stewardesses is not at all due to the fumes from exotic fuels or the long exposure and re-exposure to microbes, but is solely due to the "clean room like" dry air. Or as some lusty young ladies put it "I'm so thirsty, my tits are dry". The lusty young ladies may be right, literally. The research on this issue, oddly, is being conducted in Tobacco Country but it shows women in ultra dry silicon valley clean rooms and women continually in air planes each have high breast cancer rates.

So I would suggest ingesting much greater amounts of water and see what happens.

The same thing happens to me. It usually takes a day or two to happen. I also tend to drink probably 10% the amount of water in Vegas as opposed to what I drink at home.

yeah I guess I should have mentioned that it usually happens about 3 days into the trip. I honestly don't think I drink any water while there. Today I had 120oz so I normally drink a lot of water. I didn't think no water would lead to a nose bleed.

Well, air borne allergens are a possibility, but you can easily experiment on that water intake while in Vegas and see if after a few days of diligently guzzling water you start to get a nose bleed or not.

On a related note and question...I'd like to live in a motel/hotel year round in Las Vegas. A room, cleaned every day or at least every other day. No nonsense, don't need a kitchen and can buy a fridge. I just like living in a motel for some reason. Exact location not important but of course, security is. Downtown and near/on the strip is fine. Any suggestions? $1000-$1500.usd a month is fine. Don't want to be kicked out on holidays and weekends.

That is pretty normal in dry heat. Your nose needs moisture. Mucous helps regulate the amount of airborne particles being absorbed by your nose through the air. A dry nose makes you susceptible to tears in the interior lining resulting in a nose bleed. Also, a dry nose applied against friction or force from a sneeze will do it.

yeah it usually happens around the 3rd or 4th day. I live in Pittsburgh where there is pretty high humidity so my nose probably is not used to the dryness. At least that is what I have always told myself.

Today the high is 92 degrees with humidity at 84%. It is going to be 1 sucky day.

How do you treat a dry nose? At night and while in your room you can easily run a humidifier. I've no idea whether there are nasal drops for the purpose for when you're outside. It should be worth looking into. And it should go without saying to keep hydrated throughout the day.

We began to use a humidifier from Walgreens about a year ago. It's pretty helpful. I prefer the ones that sort of shoot a vapor into the air that looks like a dense fog using ultrasonic technology because they are quieter and work well for me.

http://www.walgreens.com/store/c/walgreens-cool-mist-humidifier/ID=prod6211862-product

That's the one that we got. I think it cost somewhere between $24.99 and $39.99 but forgot exactly how much. If you buy one after you get here you might find you could safely take it back with you for your next trip to Vegas? I waited a long time to buy one of these because of the cost, but I think I got it on sale for pretty cheap. It's worth the $39.99 even if that's what you have to pay IMO.

So it's looking like this move is going to happen. Will probably be moving out towards the end of September. I plan on staying in a week to week place while I check out some apartments. I'll be working in Spring Valley and looking to stay within a 15 minute drive. I currently commute between 3-4 hrs a day so I'm really looking forward to the short drive into work. Few more questions:

- Rough idea what electricity will be in a 1 br with pretty liberal AC usage?
- Any suggestions for apartment buildings? Probably looking to spend between 600-800 per month on rent but flexible
- I'm gonna need to buy a used car also. Anyone know of any reputable dealers? I obviously have been looking online but would feel more comfortable with your endorsements.

Sure I will have many more questions but that's it for now. Excited and terrified....

If you are willing to go to $800 per month you should be able to find a nice apartment in a decent area. Depending on how liberal you are with the A/C, I would budget about $100 per month average. Probably closer to $40 in winter and $175 in the hottest months. Definitely buy a programmable thermostat if the apartment doesn't have one.

I think that's low. I could be wrong, perhaps I wasted a ton of electric.

What part do you want to live in ? Do you want to be close to work or centrally located?

What year and price range for a car are you wanting? Are we talking cash or payments? When buying a used car I really spend a ton of extra time looking for a really good deal. This way if something goes wrong I don't feel bad spend the money fixing it.

PS. I know were you can get a used Miata.

You may be right. I haven't had a one bedroom apartment I am just basing off of a percentage of what I pay at my house. Mine average $300 in the hot months but only around $50 five months of the year. I also have mine set at 83 from 8am to 4pm during the weekdays when no one is home.

I guess it's hard for me to determine without being there to check the actual place out. I've been advised there are some nice buildings downtown. I really like the idea of 15 minutes or less to work, but I'm not going to strictly limit myself based on an arbitrary number.

Definitely not a car guy. Looking for something reliable that wont embarrass me in the parking lot at work. I finally made the transition from the 80s to the 90s with my last car (Nissan Sentra). Probably ready to take the next step and get something that was build in a year starting with a 2...I probably would be willing to spend up to $4k or so cash.

Electricity usually stays below $200/month per 1000 square feet in the summer, and goes down to about $50/month per 1000 square feet in the winter assuming you want 75' to 78' temperatures inside. If you heat with gas, I would say $33 per 1000 square feet in the winter and $8 per 1000 square feet in the summer for natural gas. Otherwise you will pay more in comparable electricity for heating and your stove and what-not.

I guess it's hard for me to determine without being there to check the actual place out. I've been advised there are some nice buildings downtown. I really like the idea of 15 minutes or less to work, but I'm not going to strictly limit myself based on an arbitrary number.



Definitely not a car guy. Looking for something reliable that wont embarrass me in the parking lot at work. I finally made the transition from the 80s to the 90s with my last car (Nissan Sentra). Probably ready to take the next step and get something that was build in a year starting with a 2...I probably would be willing to spend up to $4k or so cash.

Not sure were your work is but I don't suggest down town.

I don't suggest downtown.

I suggest renting one for a week and scouring Craigslist list then. 3k to 4k should get you something just fine. You can even be some what picky. Apart from a solid tyranny and engine Make sure the air conditioning is really good and it does not over heat both while driving and a good 15 min while just sitting.

I don't suggest downtown. Unless you get into something like City center apartments they are within your range. Most places are dumps downtown. numberd streets are the worst. 5th -10th and Carson nothing near bonanza or Marilyn and Charleston. Vegas is not that big so you can get a bit further from downtown and have good choices yet still be reasonably close .

After several of the most tumultuous weeks of my life, I've accepted an offer and will be moving to Las Vegas in September.

Well, gts, congrats are maybe not appropriate if it's been tumultuous, but sincere best wishes on the new job and the move. I hope you enjoy it out there.

I used to think I'd live in Vegas, but have
since realized it's not even a nice place to
visit. I go there out of necessity and leave
as soon as possible.

Congratulations.

Whatever the job is, I hope you enjoy it.

If its in a casino, always have a clean pressed uniform in your car trunk.

Wherever you live, let us know whats like.

Once upon a time, I thought I would like to live in Vegas. After 5 year of doing so, I have realize that I LOVE living in Vegas. When I leave on one of my out of town trips, I just can't wait to get 'home' to Vegas.

Let me be the first to welcome you to your new home gts4ever. :)
