North Las Vegas

As a sprawling flatland cut through by Rancho Drive, moving north of the 95 means low-slung ranch-style homes and aging apartment buildings. Most of the area is hard-working and honest, and low-cost housing in the past three years is beginning to attract buyers from every step of the social ladder.  The area improves considerably the closer to the mountains you get, but the commensurate price increase may scare off more price-conscious folks moving to Las Vegas.
