Is it Expensive to Live in Las Vegas?

Like many cities, Las Vegas is as cheap or as expensive as you make it – there are apartments that can cost as little as a few hundred dollars per month, and multi-million dollar homes a twenty-minute drive from said apartments. Las Vegas is a growing city, with new constructions popping up all the time, but the city also has its fair share of wonderful previously-occupied properties that could delight and protect for years to come. 

Where numbers are concerned, Las Vegas is generally projected to be more expensive than most US cities, but only by a few percentage points. To be sure, finding a one-bedroom apartment in Las Vegas that costs less than $1000 is relatively easy. You can even find one for less than $1000 that includes access to a swimming pool! There is truly something for everyone in the entertainment-driven city, and the possibilities to live frugally exist throughout. 

Average Salaries

homes in Las Vegas

With an average income of just under $60,000, Las Vegas offers a playground for all income levels. It is possible to be comfortable in Las Vegas for around $2,000 per month for the thrifty among us, and without a state income tax, you’ll see more of the money you’ve earned on each paycheck. Over half of the people living in Las Vegas are married couples without children, though around thirty percent of the households in Las Vegas do have children, which of course, creates the need for an educational system that can offer opportunities for children to learn and grow. Most of the people living and working in Las Vegas work in hospitality; the biggest money-maker for Las Vegas is the world-famous Strip, and thousands are needed to make The Strip sparkle with the glory for which the desert oasis is known. If you’re making the average salary in Las Vegas, not only will you be making a little more than most, you’ll have access to all of the things that make Vegas Vegas. 

Housing

With the average cost of a home running around $300,000, Las Vegas has plenty of affordable options for potential home-buyers. The national average cost of a home hoovers around $285,000, so, just as the previously-mentioned percentage points, Las Vegas is actually a relatively inexpensive city in which to live, especially when you compare the costs of cities from which so many move when arriving in Las Vegas. San Francisco, New York, Chicago, and Seattle have lost quite a few families to Sin City, where housing is clearly cheaper, and often already outfitted for a long and comfortable stay. Work with a local real estate agent to find a home that works just for you. 

Transit

Cars are still the best way to get around Las Vegas. Car prices vary greatly, of course, but the cost of gasoline in Las Vegas remains among the highest in the nation. Considering how easy it can be to save in other areas, though, this could easily balance itself. If you’re really concerned about gas prices, but are committed to using a car, consider a hybrid vehicle that can minimize your gas usage. Sticking to a smaller car, too, can help offset higher gas costs: smaller vehicles consume less gasoline, and less energy, even when they’re keeping you cool. 

If you don’t plan to drive in Las Vegas, that’s fine! Public transit is plentiful and runs late into the evening. The Deuce, a Strip-based bus service, runs 24 hours a day. The rest of Las Vegas’ public transit, for the most part, begins early in the morning, and runs through midnight. The public transit in Las Vegas, including cabs, served over five million people last year. With trips that can cost as little as $1 for some people, Las Vegas public transit is an excellent and reliable way to get around. Changing transit is also easy, and cheap. 

Groceries

Las Vegas is a great small city will big city ideas, including a collection of low-cost grocery stores. Whole Foods and other premium grocers are absolutely available, but there are also options like WinCo and Fiesta markets, where produce is fresh and ready for you at a much lower price. With these options in a digitally-driven world, shopping for cheap groceries can only be more expensive if you use a grocery delivery service, but the cost could be worth it on those triple-digit days. Of course, depending on how much you choose to spend on food, the dining scene in Las Vegas has so much to offer, it will take years to try everything. Delicious local eateries are plentiful, and reservations are accepted at five-star restaurants right on or off The Strip. 

Entertainment

This is a place where Las Vegas really shines – literally! Anything that you want to see can be found in fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada, and with a quickly-growing major-league sports scene, the entertainment landscape has a fresh new wave of events, and related events. Music fans’ favorite artists rarely skip Las Vegas, and many stay: Britney Spears performed a concert residency for four years at Planet Hollywood. Tickets to these types of events are typically priced like concerts typically are: it’s possible to see the show for around $100, but you’ll certainly want to pay more, if it’s possible. 

If you can’t make it to any of the many resident concerts, there are dozens of fun shows on any given night. These shows can be magic shows, theater, concerts, or TV tapings. Shows performed during the week tend to be less expensive, including the world-famous Cirque du Soleil. If price is no object, get ready to shell several hundred dollars per ticket to each unforgettable show. If sitting around isn’t your thing, go-karting, indoor rock-climbing, and hundreds of fitness classes are ready to get you in motion. 

Don’t forget about the wonderful eating options in Las Vegas! On The Strip, buffets can rule your world with a flat fee for a variety of food options. Fine dining is as available as late-night McDonald’s, and everyone is loving it. Like the rest of your Las Vegas experience, the experience of dining out in Las Vegas could break the bank, or leave you with plenty of pocket change, depending on what you’re looking for.

Me and my wife had gone through a divorce and we wanted a quick way to get rid of our property so we could just move on with our lives, Thankfully Ryan came in and helped us out, I didn't have the time to deal with the headache of people coming in and out as well as all the repairs that were needed. He gave me top dollar for my home and I was out in 7 days!

We have seen their signs around town and thought it was a scam, we decided to give them a call and I couldn't have been happier with our experience. They were professional and knowledgable, they paid for all closing costs and even helped with our family move. Great guys and great company! Thanks again!

What an AWESOME experience!! Casey and Ryan are THE BOMB!! They either answer their phone ALWAYS or respond within minutes. They originally called to see if I wanted to sell but I wasn't interested in selling. However, my neighbor had to sell immediately so I referred them to her, she accepted their offer & they closed escrow within weeks. It would've been A LOT sooner but there were delaying issues on the seller side. Anyways, they got it closed & EVERYONE is happy!! Thank you so much Casey & Ryan :). YOU'RE THE BEST!!!

I started off using a realtor thinking that I would be able to sell my home fast, but that wasn’t the case. I ended up reaching out to different companies and I ended up finding We Buy Any Vegas House. They were on it the second I reached out to them and were able to sell my home fast!

Unfortunately, I never thought I would see myself having to get rid of my home, especially in a fast time frame. However, life happens, and I needed to sell my home quickly due to a death in the family. I reached out to 4 companies in Las Vegas, and We Buy Any Vegas House not only was the most efficient, but the friendliest, most reasonable, and compassionate. The other 3 companies did not even compare. Casey and Ryan have gone above and beyond to make sure that this worked for me. They truly care about you, which means a lot especially during a tough time. They put in the effort to care about the client first, as well as my family during this tough time. I am so grateful to have found them, and to top it off, they bought my house and put cash in my pocket in 7 days. Would recommend to all! Use this company, you can't go wrong! Thanks to Casey, Ryan and John!

After a tenant trashed my rental property, I was faced with the decision of remodeling or selling the property in its current state. I called Casey and he walked me through the entire process, start to finish. After factoring in the amount of time and money the remodel would take, it was clear that selling to them was the best decision for me. Within a week of my first contact with Casey and his team, we closed on the property and I had cash in hand. I'll definitely be reaching out to them in the future. THANKS!!!

As a very skeptical person I always believe that my best interest is not priority when dealing with people that want my business. I cannot name the countless times that I have been burned. After looking to sell my house for a cash offer, I was called by a lot of investors, most of which had very little customer service. Several didn't return call when they said they would and then when they finally called me back, they got anger when I decided not to use their Services. From day one Ryan not only treated me like is #1 customer but also treated my whole family like long time friends. I most also state that his offer wasn't even the highest. I took the lower off with him due to the fact that he help with crucial tax situations that I needed taken care before receiving them money so it wouldn't bit me in the butt later. He answered every call before and after the process was completed. 99% of others wouldn't have even answered a text once they got the money. Could I have made a couple of thousand dollars more with someone else? Sure, but the peace of mind in knowing that it was done the right way by someone who actually was professional and care was more than worth it. Ryan has made a customer and friend for life.

I was in a really tough spot because my Husband was in the Hospital and had passed away. I was completely unready for this and had discovered that there would be considerable expenses!  I had received several letters from companies interested in the property on an "as is" basis.  Most had never got back to me after I called them or were too low of offers.  I put an inquiry in their website and was immediately contacted by the Owner who was able to come the very next day!  The entire process was easy and professional.  Thank you We Buy Any Vegas House!
