If you have a blast in Las Vegas while visiting, you might just decide to move there for a while. It’s also possible you’re transferred there for a while. Since taxes and fees levied on the casinos fill the local coffers, companies don’t have to pay many if any taxes and so love setting up shop in Las Vegas, drawing in thousands of employees with them. You also might just love the area for the abundance of outdoor activities the Great American West is known for. Whatever the case, you are probably wondering what kind of Las Vegas housing options there are.
Some think that because Las Vegas is in the desert, the housing options are different than elsewhere, but the truth is, they really aren’t. Granted, there are often serious restrictions on water usage, so xeriscaping is quite common, and particular architectural styles work better than others. However, you can expect the usual assortment of housing options you’d find in any other city. That would be standard residential homes, apartments, condominiums, and townhomes.
If you’re looking for something more temporary there are listings on Airbnb where you can rent a home for a short while, as well as extended-stay facilities, many hotels, and a good selection of spas and resorts. The adventurous can also find a number of campgrounds too.
As you can see, there are quite a few Las Vegas housing options, ranging from starter and forever homes you can buy or build to extended-stay suites or apartments you can lease for a few months. It all honestly depends on how long you’ll be here, why, what you need, and what your budget is. Of course if you get really lucky at one of the tables, you might just get to live in a hotel room on the Strip forever.
