Location? That's a tough one. There is good and bad in almost every part of town. I've been here 10 years and the northeast part of town has always had a negative reputation. The closer you are to the strip the higher your car insurance is due to traffic density. Based on your price range I'm guessing you are looking for an older home to work on? Since you want to rent (which I should warn you that tons of homes are for rent here) I'd suggest that once you find a potential place, look and see how many homes are vacant or being rented around it. You'd probably find rent prices that way too. My friend has a 2 bed/2 bath/1 car garage town house in the southeast that she's been renting for $900 but its been vacant for quite some time. I also know larger homes are going for similar prices. All depends on how desperate the owners are to rent it out. I'd check Craigslist.

Now that the market is showing signs of improvement investors are really making buying a challenge. I know a couple that, just 2 weeks ago, finally had to look at buying new and still had to put their name in a raffle (seriously) against other families and investors to get a lot.

That's my .02

Good luck!

Yeah seems like buying is a pain. I've found a lot of condos, well a few at least, with renters already on a lease, and no plans of leaving...

I guess I'll keep off the strip then, insurance really goes up with an address closer to the strip? That's shitty... should be a city or county wide thing! I hate insurance companies.

On the smog test thing, is there a visual part? Or do they just test the tail pipe emissions and call it a day?

Visual checks would be at the DMV for VIN inspection when you first move here, or at least my bike and an air-bagged truck I owned were both scrutinized during that process. So I guess it depends on the overall look of the vehicle in my experience.

When I lived in 89109 my car insurance was higher with a 2 mile commute to work than when I moved to 89123. Proximity to the strip was how the agent explained it to me when I asked why my insurance went up. That was a few years back but I think it is still true. This town is very transient so vehicle registration, insurance, etc is easier to tax or inflate since many people do not own homes.

If its OBD2 they only hook up to your port and if you have no check engine light your fine.

OBD1 they do a sniff test and visual

Banks are holding in to the houses to help drive demand up= drive prices up. There are a lot of houses but banks won't make them available.

Might I recommend the Fierce MTs I am currently running. Everyone will know you're a badass with barbed wire on your tires and you will be the envy of everyone who has sub-badass tires. Oh, and they have tacked everything I have thrown at them including pulling two race trucks simultaniously through silt, rock, asphalt. The tread life is amazing as well. I bought mine with supposedly 10k miles on them, I have put another 50k on them, and they are still knobby as hell, look great with minimal "chunkin".
