You really need to find an agent you can develop a rapport with and work with her/him to help you find a property. 18 months ago I would have killed for a buyer client; today I would rather have seller clients although most of my clients are currently buyers so if you accept my business model you work with the clients you have regardless of their status.
Numerous agents won't represent you unless you are purchasing a property of X value or they tack on a buyer premium ranging from $350-900 depending upon the brokerage. We don't charge those fees but you need to be aware of them if you are a consumer.
I just found a buyer client a condo for $62k that they purchased for $3k under list and it wasn't a short sale or REO so they are stoked. However I had to write 14 purchase agreements and had to look at another 15+ properties before we found the successful transaction.
So as a prospective client with any real estate representative you have to understand the frustrations they are going through along with you in the eratice/chaotic market that is Las Vegas.
Having lived in Atlanta Georgia, I understand where you're coming from. You're used to big homes on huge lots. Certain older areas of Green valley do have larger lots, but not as large as the lot sizes you're use to. Green Valley has tons of Parks, Walking trails, shops, restaurants and so much more. I love living here and raising my family here. If you need any more information about Las Vegas or Henderson areas please feel free to contact me.
Green Valley is a great place to live and has a wonderful sense of community. I've made it home for the past 13 years. I walk my children to school, the park, the library, movies, concerts and shopping. It's a great place for an active lifestyle but moves at a pace where you can enjoy life.
Yes, we often build our homes a little closer together than they do back East. We like to know what the neighbors are barbecuing so we can pop over at the right time. But seriously, we do have homes on larger lots; they are often harder to come by. Our market has been dynamic to say the least and our inventory is low. Don't let that discourage you. Persistence will pay off!

I found two homes with pools in Green Valley that were built in 1993 and 1994 respectively that are listed for under $325,000 with lots just over 10,000 sq. ft. but nothing newer than that. There are very few homes in Green Valley and the areas south (Seven Hills, Anthem, Green Valley Ranch) with larger lots and pools that fall into your price range. Most of the newer homes in Las Vegas and Henderson were built during the boom years in subdivisions with relatively small lots. If you want a newer home on a larger lot, you are looking at spending a minimum of $400,000 and probably considerably more than that.
The Green Valley area is considered one of the most popular areas to live. Homes in Las Vegas/Henderson neighborhoods are in very short supply right now and our inventory is historically low, making it a challenge to even find a home on a smaller lot in your price range.
I know the southeast very well as it is where I both live and work. If I can be of any further assistance, please contact me at (702) 321-0131 or email@example.com and I will be very happy to help you find a home that would work for you.

Four were built since 2000. Of the 30 only 6 do not currently have offers and all 4 of the newer homes are currently under contract, however, since they are all short sales they might get put back on the market.
Being a buyer right now will take a lot of patience on your part and a knowledgeable real estate agent to represent your interests. As of this morning there was only 1.7 months of supply of single family homes in the entire metropolitan area so inventory is quite low.
It is very nice to live in Green Valley. It is near everything and the people are nice.
