As professional real estate agents we have alegal obligation to NOT "steer" clients from one neighborhood to another. Rather we can point you in the right direction to websites that can help you educate yourself on the crime rates and school ratings for the areas you are interested in.
Here is the link for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police. You can enter the actual address or cross streets to view the crimes that have happened in that area within the last 60 days. This will give you a better idea about each neighborhood. http://www.lvmpd.com/crimeviewcommunity/
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. http://ccsd.net/schools/zoning/search/
If you would like further assistance or would like to go see the neighborhoods in person please contact us as would be more than happy to assist you.
