As a Las Vegas luxury real estate agent, I encounter properties that vary from refined splendor to the fantastical. The two extremes plus all the categories in between make every day a real estate adventure. There is nothing too bold or outrageous for Las Vegas, and that translates to a “something for everyone” attitude towards luxury property in Las Vegas.
Addressing A Lifestyle
Buyers and sellers both agree that lifestyle needs drive the real estate transaction. For nature lovers, a custom home or newly carved parcel of land in either Summerlin or Henderson would be an ideal place to begin their Las Vegas real estate search. Fans of the fast-paced environment of Downtown or the Strip would most likely prefer a condo in a high-rise that provides a view and resort-style living.
My Las Vegas luxury real estate agent approach is to take inventory of your preferred activities, proximity to urban conveniences, and style requirements before matching you with potential properties.
For example, clients with dogs like to have a park nearby where they can walk their furry friend. Parents of young children usually prefer a short commute to schools and activity zones. Those who are independently living in their 50s benefit from the amenities of age-restricted developments.
Mountains, A Skyline, Lakes, and Golf Courses
Choosing your view is easy in Las Vegas. You can narrow it down to one element, or you can incorporate as many different vistas as possible. High above the basin floor in sky-scraping penthouses, homeowners can revel in 270-degree views of Las Vegas that include mountain ranges and an up close peek of the illuminated buildings.
In neighborhoods like Anthem and Country Club Hills, you have access to raised panoramas thanks to these developments placement along the mountains that surround the valley. Along with elevation, residents also have access to homes or raw land near golf courses so that you can have a mountain view as well as a golf course landscape.
Residents of Lake Las Vegas can have all of the above if desired. Our man-made lake, courtesy of the Colorado River, provides recreation along with a peaceful backdrop to luxury living. This self-contained subsection of Las Vegas invites homeowners looking for a turnkey solution to the luxury real estate quandary.
The lake hosts events like Dragon Boat races, stand-up paddle board lessons, fishing, and sunset cruises. Along the banks, you’ll find our Henderson Symphony Orchestra performing, yoga classes, and walking trails. Close by are restaurants and shopping for convenient dining and retail therapy.
Investment, Vacation or Retirement
Professional sports teams, stars in the entertainment industry, and former Silicon Valley inhabitants are making their way to Las Vegas, either permanently or on a part-time basis. The population spectrum in Las Vegas influences local culture, which then attracts new residents.
Las Vegas luxury real estate is an attractive option for investors who want to diversify a portfolio. Revenue from rental income is tax-free in the state of Nevada, and federal tax benefits like deducting the interest from a second mortgage, improvements, and repairs still apply.
Clients who want to build equity can lease out their luxury homes to convention attendees, tourists, or long-term tenants. These are also options open to owners who don’t live in Las Vegas full-time.
Our arid climate makes Las Vegas a year-round destination for vacation homeowners. Winter golf is always a possibility, as is skiing on Mount Charleston, which is less than an hour away from the city. Springtime brings warm days in the first few months of the year, and the same goes for autumn, in our extensive outdoor activities calendar. Even the summer heat is no match for elaborate swimming pools, nearby Lake Mead, or highly efficient HVAC systems.
Las Vegas is rapidly becoming a top choice for retirees thanks to our tax-free status, amenities that cater to leisure pursuits, social opportunities, and age-restricted housing developments. We have several Sun City locations within the valley, and all provide a safe, comfortable environment for residents.
Some prospective homeowners buy luxury property in Las Vegas long before the age of retirement so they can build capital until they are ready for the next life chapter. This hybrid approach to living in Las Vegas eases transition periods and provides a financial cushion at the same time.
