High Above the Fray
“Historically, when people bought in Las Vegas, condos were a relatively new thing. People coming to Las Vegas think they’ll buy a single-family house but what we’ve seen is so many people forget about lifestyle. You have to really think about the lifestyle that you want,” Realtor Uri Vaknin has said. And for Las Vegas buyers and investors, having a gym and a pool on site and no yard to maintain is often the perfect combo. “What’s so great about condos is they afford people this wonderful lifestyle that’s lock-and-leave, that’s amenity-rich.”
Protect Your Turf
Desert landscaping is a must in Las Vegas. It’s a given that Vegas homeowners need to be water smart, and one logical solution is to opt for artificial grass. There are a variety of different looks and feels, and whether a putting green is on your list of must-haves or you’re simply being environmentally conscious, finding a turf option just makes sense. One thing to consider is most homes will require some sort of solar screens on at least some of the windows to prevent sunlight from reflecting off them and damaging your investment.
Expert Look: Mahsheed Barghisavar
Mahsheed Barghisavar has spent the last 14 years developing her brand in the Las Vegas market as one of the top names in luxury home sales. She owns her own brokerage here and also has a brokerage in California. With 17 years in Las Vegas, Mahsheed certainly knows the ins and outs of this city, its suburbs and how to get clients what’s on their wish lists.
She notes the type of custom homes people are seeing now has undergone a major transformation. “There are more and more modern-looking homes being built, but not the older ‘desert modern.’ It’s more contemporary, like things you would see in L.A. and Southern California. The exteriors, especially, look a lot different. It’s not so much of the cookie-cutter look where everything looked the same. We’re moving away from that now to a more custom contemporary look. The interiors are way more high-end now, so they embody cozy luxury.”
Mahsheed explains interior finishes have also taken a turn toward contemporary luxury. “You still see a lot of granite but now you see thicker slabs of granite that make the homes look even more luxurious. You have some quartz mixed into the granite, so you don’t just have a basic granite slab. In some of the newer builds, I’m even seeing very high-end custom countertops made out of wood. They’re so beautiful.”
