The Deal With Cheap Vegas Real Estate

As I mentioned in other posts, I've bought a place in Vegas and have officially moved there (although I still spend a lot of my time traveling). Living in Vegas is a weird sort of loophole that most people probably aren't even aware of, so I figured I'd talk about why I decided to do it, and the unique advantages that Vegas presents.

If you work independently or remotely, Vegas is very likely to be a place you should consider moving. If doing so would require you to find a job, Vegas is probably not for you. The job market here is terrible, which is part of why this opportunity exists. That barrier is suppressing demand for housing.

The biggest reason to consider Vegas is the very low cost of living. There's no state income tax, and housing is cheap. Ridiculously cheap. My place would have cost approximately twenty-two times as much if I had bought it in San Francisco. Thats crazy! I bought a 1000 square foot place for under $45,000.

The thing that makes this amazing is the location. My place is six minutes from the airport, eight minutes to the center of the strip, twelve minutes from downtown, and five from Chipotle.

Early On a Sunday Morning: Where I Live

On Where Pianos Roam

As many of you know, I just moved to a new apartment in downtown Nashville, TN.  I went from living in the quiet and lovely suburb of Hermitage to a place that is in the middle of everything.  The image above is one of two main entryways into the building I live in.  Built with crab orchard stone, it is a gorgeous old building designed in collegiate gothic architectural style. 

My complex is sandwiched in between music row, Vanderbilt University, and Belmont University.  This past weekend, it was not uncommon to see parents walking around with their son or daughter and lugging around bags and furniture to be used in their dorms.  There must be hundreds of students from all kinds of places moving into the area right now.  There happens to be a huge contingency of Asian students.  This makes me quite happy.  (-:

This building is a neighboring one right next to mine.
