I used to live in North Carolina, which a completely different atmosphere from here in Las Vegas. People are different, culture is different and even traditions. I think this is a good place to live, but I also think that it's not the best place for children to reside.
From what I have seen, the housing market did take a hit during the recession, but people are starting buy property again. The better part of town is Summerlin and Henderson, though there are others that are developing that are nice neighborhoods, such as North Las Vegas. The bad part of town is mostly by the downtown area and near the strip.

From what I hear of other cities, Las Vegas seems to have a very reasonably prices housing market for renters and buyers.
