Type of North Las Vegas Homes

There are many North Las Vegas homes for sale, from new homes to condos to single-family houses. When choosing a home, don’t just think of your immediate needs, but also want you want for the future. Are you going to have kids, or more kids? If you already have children, are they going to be leaving soon to go to college or start their own families? Do you want space for guests or a home office? How much upkeep are you capable of? And, of course, the big question – how much money can you spend? Condos and townhouses are alternatives for people who don’t need much room and don’t have that much money to lay out. As of 2010, buyers can find many beautiful condos and townhouses with amenities like cherry wood cabinets, granite countertops, attached garages and two bathrooms for between $50,000 and $60,000.

North Las Vegas Zip Codes

There are ten different zip codes in the city, and for sales purposes, most listings categorize neighborhoods according to their zip code. When checking out North Las Vegas homes, note what else is in the same zip code: schools, shops, restaurants, etc. Also, make note of what you don’t want to be close to. For example, if you don’t want to be near the airport, stay away from 89032. If you decide to use the services of a real estate agent, one of the first things he will ask you if which neighborhood you are interested in. If you do your homework beforehand, it will be easier to get a home that suits your needs and not the agency’s.

North Las Vegas Home Foreclosures

Unfortunately, as of 2010, North Las Vegas had one of the highest rates of foreclosure in the United States. Many homes for sale are foreclosed homes, which is bad news for the previous owners, but good news for people looking for bargains. Sometimes foreclosed homes are auctioned off, at a fraction of their worth. The website Trulia has a real estate search engine which you can use to specifically find homes in foreclosure. Some homes, particularly town homes and condos, have starting bids as little as $5,000.

Neighborhood Schools

If you have, or think you will have, children, becoming familiar with which schools lie in which neighborhoods is an important part of buying a house. Even if you don’t have a specific school in mind, you’ll need to check out the schools in your zip code to see what is around. If you have high-school aged children, you might not especially want to live in the neighborhood of zip code 89030, which contains nothing but elementary schools. If you are interested in sending these same kids to private school, it is to your benefit to know that 89081 contains Mojave Preparatory Academy.
