It is pretty likely, assuming you have no derogatory rental history and/or money being owed to a landlord.
You will likely be asked to pay an increased deposit however.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department
has Crime Mapping on its website.

When you arrive at the home page hover
your cursor over Protect Yourself. A drop down
menu will appear.

Highlight Crime Mapping with your cursor and
click on it. You will be able to see what crimes
occurred with a date/time stamp.

Take precautions to protect yourself and
your family in every neighborhood.

Kind regards,

to get to the point fast. If you'd like to take advantage of a foreclosure or short sale in any area. You should already be asking that question of your REALTOR. And if you don9;t have one get one to start searching for you. the Vegas market is very fast. if there is a great home with a great price. Odds are it will be gone in 24hours. or less. ... more

Richard Brody answered:
You may have an out if your lease contains a clause regarding safety issues and landlord's requirements and responsibilities. Some landlord tenant clients will represent you for far less than that amount, and some probably offer some sort of free consultation. Ask around for recommendations, and consider contacting your local housing administration to discover if you have other options. ... more

Brian Nguyen answered:
Your credit score can be hard for most lender to deal with. The lowest lenders like myself can go is to a credit score of 580. Since you are below that I recommend that you work on your credit score for a bit. The simplest way to fix your credit is to pay off your debt and revolving credit balance on time. Either way, I recommend that you speak with a lender like myself that would be happy to speak with you. Us lenders would be happy to point you in the right direction to get you started on the road to your loan. Well I hope this helps, if you have any other questions or need a loan please contact me through the information on my profile page. I hope this helps! Good Luck!

Gerry McLoughlin answered:
Bear with me are looking for a FSBO because you want to save the commission (no commission for buyers), or you perceive the selling price of an FSBO to be lower because no selling commission involved (99% of FSBO's are overpriced because the owner has no access to accurate comparables and wishful thinking leads to over pricing), so what are you gaining?
Check out my fsbo video. I have a network of really good buyer agents if you need a free referral for a free to you service. Best Wishes, Gerry McLoughlin

Damon Botticelli answered:
I see some good points below:
-no limit to the number if they're your properties
-you may be required to comply with Fair Housing laws with more than 4 properties
-some asset planning such as an LLC or a Nevada Series LLC would be good to look into

I should also add that there is a Nevada law that requires the landlord or someone designated by the landlord to handle emergencies and property issues to reside within 50 miles from the property. No problem if you're local, but if you live out of the area, you'll want to hire a property manager.

Reggie R. Dela Rosa answered:
Rather than trying to predict what's going to happen over the next 5 years, why not just research whether now is the right time for you to buy a home. Everyone's situation is different and only you can determine what's best for you based on relevant information that's currently available. If need be, consult a real estate agent, your attorney, your CPA, your family members and anyone else's opinion you find important in making a decision. Bottom line: no one can predict the future, but everyone can take action to shape their future right now! Best of luck to you! ... more

Deluxe Realty answered:
As John and others state below, there may be rental restrictions depending on the specific community, and it's best determined when a specific address is given, as this varies at Coronado Ranch.

Payal, myself, or other agents here, would be more than happy to work directly with you, and it really is important to have an agent representing you.

Rhonda, some people just want their questions answered, and don't want agents bombarding them with e-mails... I think once they are ready to buy / sell, they will contact the agent they feel most comfortable with, themselves. :)
