Hello Sjhoffman, you did not mention the address and you should confirm with a licensed agent to verify the address and who you should be dealing with. You have to be very careful with so many scammers out there these days.
You should also study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments. You may qualify to buy and pay less than rent in NV.
If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment you are looking to achieve and you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria.
