* I think if would be wonderful to live in Vegas, it would
be cheaper than here in New York. Unfortunately my wife has her
entire family here and we could never move away from them, but I can
always dream of coming to Vegas. Yes, I would move in a minute.

* I think it's great. I'm just
waiting for the bubble to bust then I'm buying. Howard Kendall
* My husband and I would love to
move to Las Vegas but the housing bubble has become astronomical. The
prices in just one year has priced us out of the market. Instead of
retiring there we both would have to continue to work almost full time.
I guess we will have to stay here in the snow belt awhile longer.
* Yes, I believe housing
prices in Las Vegas are too high to consider moving there. Keith
* The prices of homes have gone up
significantly, however, they were way to low to start with and with all
the new casinos and continued growth, I feel it is still a bargan.
Sure it is much higher in prices than it was a few years ago, but so is
gasoline. I am not going to park my car and wait for gasoline
prices to go down either. With 8,000 people a month moving to
Vegas, every month I wait costs me more money, but I retire in four more
months and Vegas bound I will be traveling. See you soon.

* I currently rent a condo in
Henderson Nevada and have been trying to buy a home here for the last
year. Yes, prices are still too high. The older homes are not worth the
price they are asking and the new homes have NO land. Alanna
* The only way I would move to Las
Vegas and be able to buy a house for $280.00 is if I won big sum of
money or I would build my own house. Then maybe in time if the increase
in housing is going up my moving there would be profitable. Paulette
* The price is not the
issue. its what I can get for my house here in Conn. So its a break even
venture if I so choose to move. However the summer heat is the main
deterrent. and don't tell me its a dry heat. 115 is 115. We have
humidity yes, but it comes and goes. the oven like conditions stay with
you for months. Then there's the issues of living
expenses, schools systems, local govt. and state matters, along with
everyday living concerns. and to close, no ocean to go to and tan or
