Owning a home is a goal most of us strive for. Typically, that goal involves a single-family home. But there are other options: most notably, a condominium.
A condo -- short for condominium -- is a dwelling unit that, like an apartment, is usually located in a building with other units. Your neighbors may be above you, below you or next door. The difference between a condo and an apartment is that you own the condo.
So who is most likely to gravitate to condo living? Generally, it's the person who wants to own his or her dwelling but doesn't want to be bothered with maintenance. But there are other factors that may impact your decision about whether buying a condo might be right for you when compared with other Las Vegas homes for sale.

Ever find yourself growing tired of the prequels, sequels, and remakes filling today's cookie-cutter multiplexes? Rediscover the joy of movies at the 16th annual Dam Short Film Festival, taking place February 13-16 just minutes from Boulder City homes for sale.
History of the Film Festival
Users of FilmFreeway, a festival submission platform, rate the Dam Short Film Festival in the top 1.5 percent of more than 7,000 film festivals and contests worldwide. The largest film festival in Nevada is also one of the most popular cultural events in the state.
The festival's roots date back to 2003 when Lee and Anita Lanier formed a non-profit organization devoted to sharing their love of short films. Over the previous 15 years, the pair had worked in film production and computer animation while directing half a dozen of their short films.
In 2005, the festival made its official debut with screenings at the American Legion Hall. As the festival's scope expanded, it moved to the historic Boulder Theatre in 2008. John LaBonney served as festival director from 2012 to 2019, and under his stewardship, the festival began attracting sell-out crowds.
The Boulder Theatre
The background of the Boulder Theatre is a worthy topic for its own short film. Built-in 1931, the 400-seat theatre was at one time the only air-conditioned building in the Boulder City area. Legend has it that laborers working on Hoover Dam would splurge on a 25-cent ticket to escape the blistering heat for a couple of hours.

If you're planning to put your Las Vegas home for sale, one of the most important parts of getting your house ready is getting rid of clutter. Our real estate agents know it helps with open houses to have as few personal possessions as possible so that potential buyers can imagine filling the space with their own belongings. Studies have shown that a decluttered home sells faster, and at a higher price point. Still, the issue remains—what to do with all that stuff.
A lot of things can probably be donated, given away, or thrown out. It's also a good idea to have a big yard sale to unload some old, unwanted items. Still, you're going to be left with a lot. It can't go back into your old house, and your new house probably isn't ready for it yet. If you've found yourself in this tricky spot, renting a storage unit may be the solution you're looking for, but it's important to choose wisely.

Chances are, if you have a mortgage, you've probably wondered if it would be better to pay it off early. If that's the case, you're not alone. There are compelling arguments to be made for and against. Our real estate agents are here to help you make the best financial decision for your specific situation.
On one hand, there's some logic behind the idea that, if you have any kind of debt, it's always better to pay it off sooner rather than later. And paying off your mortgage early, if you have the available funds to do so, will certainly reduce the amount that you pay in interest in the long run.
But there's a counter-argument to be made as well. One of the most common reasons many financial experts give for not paying off your mortgage early is that the amount you save in interest probably won't be more than you could earn by using that money for other long-term investments, such as real estate or the stock market. At the end of the day, the right call depends on your unique priorities and situation.

Prohibition ended in 1933, but speakeasies are roaring back to life in recent years, and Las Vegas is certainly no exception. In fact, Sin City—where saloons with lax rules got raided on the regular, even in the middle of that federal ban—just might be the most fitting place to grab an undercover cocktail in a swanky, secretive locale.

Las Vegas homes for sale have everything you and your family are looking for, even the furry members of your family! Once you find the home of your dreams and moving time is upon you, you'll need to do some planning to make relocating your pet a success. Being prepared can make things less stressful for everyone and help moving day go smoothly.
The earlier you can start the moving process the better for your pet. Some pets handle change better than others. You'll be making big changes to their current environment by packing, and doing that a little at a time will make it less disruptive. You'll also be introducing them to a new neighborhood and surroundings. You may have to get them used to staying in a travel carrier or riding in the car. And you'll probably be disrupting their routine with travel and moving day. Giving them time to adjust to all the change can help avoid major problems.
Keep your cool
Dogs and cats can pick up on their owner's stress levels, so keeping yours in check is a necessity. If you don't, your pet may get agitated, over excited, aggressive or otherwise act in a way that isn't going to make things easier.
