It would help to know what you can afford? Income, credit score, work history will play a major role in figuring out the best neighborhood based on what kind of mortgage you get.

Hello!

My favorite website for school rating is GreatSchool's website, here's the link: http://www.greatschools.org/search/search.page?search_type=0…

Since you mentioned it is the most important aspect, the rest will follow once you have chosen the right school/s for your kids. They have reviews on private, public and charter schools. It's convenient to get around here and there's plenty of activities, golf courses, pools, etc. Feel free to call for more info.

Good luck!

The first step to purchasing a home here in Las Vegas is get your financing lined up. You need to speak to a loan officer about your specific scenario.

-If this is going to be a cash deal: we will need proof of funds to submit with the offer if we find a home you like. We will want this in hand when looking at homes. If we do not have this and we find a home you like we will not be able to submit an offer until we have the proof of funds in which time we may lose the deal and be back to square one.

-If this deal will require financing: we will need to get a preapproval letter before looking at properties. This way if we find a deal we can write up an offer and submit it right away. If we don't have you preapproved and we have to wait a day or 2 to get you preapproved we may lose the deal and be back to square one. Feel free to use your own lender or we can provide you with the contact information for lenders we work with all the time. We recommend you shop around and see who you feel the most comfortable with and who can offer you the best deal on your loan. Once you pick the loan officer you would like to use have them provide you with a preapproval letter.

If you have specific address you are interested in you can read below to check recent crimes and school ratings in that area.

Please see the following links to check crimes that have occurred recently around addresses that you plug in.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police website covering Clark County and the City of Las Vegas, has a page where you can search crime statistics. We've included the link below.
http://69.69.103.31/crimeviewcommunity/

For areas covered by N. Las Vegas police:
http://www.cityofnorthlasvegas.com/departments/police/CrimeS…

For the City of Henderson:
http://www.cityofhenderson.com/police/crime_search.php

This is the link to the Clark County School District. Again, you can enter in the address you are interested in and it will pull up the schools zoned for that specific house. There are reports and ratings on each school, this will give you a better idea of how well that each school is performing. Once you enter the address, you can click on the school name, then click on the school website and on their front page look for the "2010-2011 Accountability Report". This will give you very detailed information on each school and how they are performing.

Depends on what sort of activities and lifestyle you are interested in. Plenty of golf in Las Vegas so you can be on many different sides of town. Many of my clients like the community of Summerlin for its nice parks and recreation areas. Peccole Ranch is the only areas with miles of mature walking trails that also have disk golf. Some like being closer to Lake Meade which would put you more toward Henderson. There are many great areas there as well, like Green Valley Ranch or Mountains Edge just depends on your preference.

My last child is graduating in a couple of years and we have had good experiences with the school system. Our magnet schools rank really high in the nation so if your children have specific interest that may be a good fit.

If you coming out to Vegas let me know and we can take a tour.

Happy hunting!
