Real estate experts have predicted that by 2008, there will be a 200% rise in property values for Las Vegas homes. With this in mind, a number of high rise condos and master planned communities have been built in Las Vegas and its environs.
Aliante is the newest of these master planned communities. Located in northern Las Vegas near Decatur, this family oriented community offers a variety of conveniences such as drugstores and supermarkets. Three schools are also being built for this community.
First time home buyers should look into purchasing a home Camino Del Norte, which is located in the northwest section of the valley. Given that it is not in the center of the action, the savings in land values can be passed on to the buyer. Convenient shopping as well as an established school system makes Camino Del Norte another excellent choice for families.
If you want to wake up to the sight of ducks and swans floating on a man-made lake, Desert Shores is the place to live. This active community has a lagoon at its center, where you will find a swimming pool, basketball courts, volleyball courts and picnic tables. You can also fish or boat on the lake, or jog along the trails of this beautiful gated community.
Do you harbor fantasies about moving to a small Italian village? The good news is that you don't have to give up your citizenship to do so! Galileo, da Vinci, Alberti, Michelangelo and Petrarch were the inspiration for the charming MonteLago Village at Lake Las Vegas. Stroll across the Pontevecchio-inspired bridge, sip a cappuccino or enjoy a gelato while you watch the gondolas float across the lake. This is la vita dolce at its finest.
