Southern Nevada's Desert Land Rush

The search for new developable land pushes out beyond the Las Vegas Valley.

"At first, the thought is hard to process: Southern California-style commutes becoming an accepted way of life in Southern Nevada. But the day might come in less than a decade when a Las Vegas developer builds tract homes in Logandale or when Station Casinos opens its newest neighborhood complex in Pahrump. Low interest rates, creative home financing, out-of-state investment dollars and a perceived lack of developable land have pushed valley home prices higher, leaving many to eye the map as Southern Nevada's population blows past 2 million people on its march to 3 million."
