In November 2021, Las Vegas homes for sale were up 22% year-over-year. However, the rapidly rising housing costs in the city are offset by businesses taking root and creating jobs in Las Vegas.

MacDonald Highlands, in particular, is where you can bask in the beauty of the desert landscape during the day and enjoy the sparkling city lights at night.
Space for work and play
Large estates mean having more square footage to accommodate spacious rooms and plenty of open areas. The remote working setup became the norm due to the pandemic, and more homebuyers are now looking for large estates where they can do everything in the safety of their homes. You can have dedicated rooms and indoor or outdoor spaces for a home office, entertainment rooms, recreation areas, fitness rooms, and a space to host parties. Of course, the luxury part of luxury homes is also present with extravagant extras like basketball courts, infinity pools, theater rooms, bowling alleys, and wine cellars.
Luxury golf course homes are made of high-end materials and showcase the finest finishes. Wood herringbone floors, marble kitchen counters, and high-quality stainless steel appliances are only some of the top features. These sprawling estates also typically have impressive landscaping and sealed cement floors in storage rooms and garages.
Smart home technology
Golf course homes in Las Vegas are equipped with smart home systems. These high-tech features add a lot of value to a house and are a worthy investment. They are amazing features that allow you to automate home functions like locking and unlocking doors, turning the lights on and off, and controlling the temperature using your smartphone. Moreso, smart home systems are also energy efficient and make for a more sustainable home. Furthermore, the latest smart home technology helps you and your family stay safe with advanced security systems, which also keeps your property secure even if you are away from home.
Attractions and Nightlife on The Strip
Living in luxury homes in Las Vegas gives you access to the Las Vegas Strip, lovingly known as The Strip. Lined with upscale casino hotels and neon lights, this 6.8km road is home to the Fountains of Bellagio and the High Roller observation wheel. The abundance of attractions and activities on The Strip keep locals and tourists busy at all hours of the day.
After a day of golfing in Las Vegas' world-famous golf courses, a stroll along The Strip will present you with many recreation and entertainment choices, including karaoke bars, arcades, and malls. If you want more adventurous options, you can ride one or all of the rollercoasters and go ziplining. Families can enjoy watching shows available every night, while there are more mature shows and music performances for the adults.
For a day of relaxation, spas and salons are also located in and around the resorts and hotel complexes on The Strip. Visit the Observation Deck at Paris Las Vegas or the LINQ High Roller for relaxing and spectacular views.
While Las Vegas is a common destination for the affluent, you can enjoy budget-friendly and free activities on The Strip. The Fountains of Bellagio and The Mirage Volcano are free for viewing. You can also take your family for a walk in the Wildlife Habitat at Flamingo.
At the north end of The Strip is Adventuredome, an indoor carnival and theme park in the Circus Circus hotel. Walking around and enjoying the unique atmosphere is free, but the rides require wristbands. There are also carnival games and arcades that are true to the circus theme.
