Is Las Vegas that noisy?

Asked by skaa.wazzap, Las Vegas, NV Sat Jun 15, 2013

Las Vegas is known as the town which never sleeps. I'm interested to move here in the future. In comparison, the prices for condos or homes are way lower than other cities. They are just like the prices in my country (Romania, Europe). Why are those prices so low? Are here lots of crimes, or what? I can't figure it out. Please tell me in some words about the town and how noisy,dangerous and however 'spooky' it is. What about safety? I would be very thankful if I get a response. Wish you all the best!

Yes, if you're in a casino all those bells ringing as the slots are paying off those other people are noisy. Of course, if those bells are going off on the slot machine you're playing, that's not noise; that's music.

If you live there, I BET you'll like it.

Las Vegas and Henderson are both wonderful and vibrant areas. There are many neighborhoods and master planned communities for the professional or families that can offer a more relaxed setting with ample amenities. Sometimes, just the flashing lights of the strip are a reminder that you are near Las Vegas, a 24 hour city. There are also areas that are in close proximity to the busier and more vibrant parts of the city. An experienced Realtor can help assist with various parts of town that would best suit your property needs and budget.

The cities of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, and Henderson all operate their own crime mapping websites. The links as of the time of this post are:

Go 5 miles west of the strip toward Summerlin, and you will find bedroom communities just like every other city in America. I have friends who haven't visited the Strip in years. You get the advantage of hihgh end excitments and suburbia within a few minutes of each other.

It depends on where you want to live.

Just like any city, there are some parts of Vegas that are quite and some that are not.

Home prices are on the rise in much of the Las Vegas - Henderson area.

Some areas are noisier than others due to freeway traffic etc.

If you send me info regarding the type of home you are looking for I would be happy to assist you with find a home to purchase. The easiest way to get this info to me is to fill out our "Buyer's Form on our website here:

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.

For areas covered by N. Las Vegas police:…

For the City of Henderson:

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 "Accountability Report". This will give you very detailed information on each school and how they are performing.

It is safe, I am a native of Vegas and i'm 47 years old,I graduated , went to some college then into Real estate, my children turned out great , graduated high school, and college. We live in safe areas meaning we do not live around a lot of crime, drugs, etc. The city is the city, no matter where you go. Noisy ? Its only noisy if you hang around noisy places like casinos, bars etc. We are normal people who live in normal areas when we are away from the "Strip"

Most of Las Vegas is your basic suburbia, same as everywhere else. There are some areas that have higher crime rates, and some areas that can get "spooky" (and I don't scare easily!). The prices are low because Vegas built up a lot during the boom years and the recession hit hard here.

I love Las Vegas, but a lot of people don't...They move here thinking it will be a permanent vacation and are disappointed to find that it has real life, just like everywhere else. However, real life in Vegas includes a wide variety of restaurants, entertainment and outdoor activities that you won't find all in one place anywhere else. Make sure you "try before you buy" and see whether LV is really right for you.

don't gamble on Las Vegas until you check it out in person. then if you like what you see and hear, roll the dice and fine a property.

good luck

Las Vegas is not at all "spooky". In fact it can be very pleasant, depending on where you live.

Is it noisy? I think so. Every public place, restaurant, bar, casino, even the grocery store has slot machines and the constant "ding, ding, ding. ding" and circus music never goes away.
