The Las Vegas Valley comprises several incorporated cities, towns, and suburbs. Two of the largest and most popular are Paradise and North Las Vegas. These areas are quite different in terms of lifestyle, and they have different home offerings at the $600K price point. Not sure which one is right for you? Read on to find out.
Paradise is an unincorporated town adjacent to Las Vegas. It includes much of what many people imagine when they think about Las Vegas. In fact, most of the Strip is actually in Paradise, not Las Vegas proper!
Living in Paradise
Living in Paradise will give you a true city feel. The neighborhoods are more walkable than other parts of the Las Vegas Valley, and there are more public transportation options. You’ll also find plenty of shopping options in Paradise, from luxury shopping malls to massive complexes of outlet stores.
Paradise is the heart of Las Vegas action. Here you’ll find streets lined with restaurants, bars, nightclubs, theaters, and concert halls. Las Vegas’ famous casino hotels are located in Paradise, and each one features world-class entertainment and dining options. One thing is certain about living here; you’ll never get bored.
What $600K will get you in Paradise
For single-family homes around $600,000, you’re looking at 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, fully updated houses on lots around 6,000 square feet. The state of landscaping varies widely, from well-designed outdoor spaces with mature plants to blank slate dirt ready for your vision. In-ground swimming pools are also popular.
Since Paradise is one of the most urban areas of the Las Vegas Valley, condos are also readily available.

North Las Vegas
Taking up most of the northern half of the Las Vegas Valley, North Las Vegas is its own incorporated city—separate from Las Vegas and Paradise.
Living in North Las Vegas
North Las Vegas offers classic suburban living, featuring expansive residential neighborhoods, ample parks and green space, and easy access to nearby outdoor recreation areas. You’ll need a car to live here, as all that space doesn’t lend itself to walkability. However, any house you buy will come prepared, as most in the area include spacious garages.
Though North Las Vegas is technically the burbs, it still packs a Las Vegas punch with fantastic restaurants, live music venues, and casinos. While the nightlife is quieter than the scene in Paradise, you’ll still find plenty to do, and you’ll have easier access to outdoor adventure spots like Lake Mead.
What $600K will get you in North Las Vegas
$600,000 goes farther in North Las Vegas than in other parts of the Las Vegas Valley. For single-family homes at this price point, you can expect 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms on lots around 6,500 square feet.
