Downtown Las Vegas Homes
Downtown Las Vegas Homes For Sale have fabulous personality. Whether they are lofts, condos, or older homes, they are full of style. If downtown Las Vegas homes for sale fit your needs, let’s take a look at them.
Also in the heart of downtown Las Vegas, are homes that are older and smaller on good-sized lots. They circle the City, State, and Federal Courthouses. These houses have become legal offices and businesses that converted houses into office buildings. I call that area the Legal District.
How Downtown Grows In Every City
When a city grows, it usually circles downtown As growth occurs, homes, ranches, and businesses spread out from the center of the city. Las Vegas was established in 1905, so we’ve circled downtown many times to finally be building homes in the mountains.
Because that’s how a city grows, that means that theoretically, the oldest homes are in Downtown. Since the County, State, City, District, and Federal Courts are Downtown, many houses and businesses are related to marriage and bail bonds. Of course, the area needs restaurants for court employees, juries, and attorneys, and their clients.
When the Strip started its growth spurt, Downtown Las Vegas needed to keep up. Fremont Street Experience was created and revitalization started in 1995. Zappos was part of the big picture when they made the old Federal Courthouse into their office campus.
Housing and Buildings
Besides small older homes, there are also many multi-family, large older homes, and manufacturing buildings. The revitalization movement to modernize for over 20 years and make Downtown Las Vegas a great place to live again has worked.
High-rise condominiums and mid-rise lofts are “on the rise” with 6 towers so far. Local businesses and restaurants are enjoying the growth in evening business. There is a big convenience factor about living Downtown.
There are some extremely nice homes for sale in Downtown Las Vegas. A listing I had 10 years ago had an old 1955-1960 record player that folded down, built into the kitchen wall. Restored and unrestored homes are being recognized as hidden pockets that residents are happy to call home. There’s a lot to appreciate about living in “the middle” of a city.
Buying Downtown Las Vegas Homes
Buying any kind of property anywhere in any Downtown in America means that caution needs to be exercised. That ground has a history. In some cities, it has hundreds of years of history.
We research the history of every property to verify that the dirt wasn’t contaminated or there isn’t an abandoned gasoline storage tank underground. This is super important when buying a home for sale in Downtown Las Vegas.
Know that some searches can be positive. Our verification searches have always shown clean dirt and a non-issue history, and we always check. There is a story of a man who bought an old ice warehouse in downtown Las Vegas.
Unbeknownst to the seller, there were considerable water rights that came with the property that this man ended up purchasing with this crumby dilapidated building.
It is always a good thing to know what you’re buying, or selling, especially the history of a parcel downtown. We work for you and research for both buyers and sellers.
Searching For Houses in Downtown
With the ongoing revitalization project Downtown, the City of Las Vegas is willing to wheel and deal if you want a fixer-upper. There are always investment opportunities that you can take advantage of. Since I am a former Nevada building engineer, at least we can take an educated look at all these jackpots waiting in Downtown Las Vegas.
