Age Restricted Communities in Las Vegas

As I mature in age (OK fine, get older) I realize that I am only 18 months away from qualifying to purchase a home in an “age-restricted” community.
Over the years The McKenna team has worked with a large number of clients who bought and sold in these types of communities.
Now that it is a little closer to home, I decided to take a closer look at age restricted communities in the Las Vegas Valley.
We actually visited 2 such communities over the weekend. We went to Trilogy by Shea Homes and Regency by Toll Brothers.
Both were located in Summerlin. Both were very, very nice. Usually in a community in which you must be 55 or older to own you would see only single story homes.
The interesting ...

The Las Vegas valley has a lot of amazing things on the horizon! News of the largest solar farm and a high-tech, digital mini-city has been broadcasted. While we are a ways out from projected ground breakings, it brings in the next steps towards upgrading to renewable resources in a metropolitan area.


Imagine stepping into a building that takes you out of this world? We would expect nothing less from our ambitious city. The innovative project plans to have supertrees, vertical gardens, and an array of renewable energy technology throughout the area. Bleutech Park is reported to be featuring a completely “off-the-grid” along with high-tech residential and tech-smart

Allegiant Stadium Takes Shape

temp-post-image


Is Raiders Stadium taking shape or what? As we are driving around the city lately, it is becoming more and more obvious that the new Allegiant Stadium is going to be an amazing venue. I am sure UNLV football and the Raiders are chomping at the bit to get into the new facility and let the pigskin fly.


The Las Vegas Bowl will be played there this December and I can’t begin to imagine the elaborate and exciting events that will take place at this terrific new venue. There is talk that the 2027 Superbowl will be played at Allegiant Stadium and I have to assume the NCAA Final Four and the College Football Championship game are taking a serious look at our city as the perfect location. A bran...

With the hotter days and longer nights there is so much you can do in Las Vegas - paddle boarding on Lake Las Vegas, enjoy a movie in the park, hike Mt Charleston, break ground on a new Google Building. That’s right! Google broke ground on their new $600-million -dollar investment located in Henderson on July 1st. This investment will create more jobs & in turn it will help the real estate market with the added job growth. Thank you, Google, for coming to town and investing in Henderson!

Visit Lake Tahoe

Visit Lake Tahoe - One of the prettiest places on earth.






temp-post-image


One of the most beautiful places in the world is right here in our state (well, half of it is in our state).


Just a short drive north on Highway 95 is Amazing Lake Tahoe. Ok, not so short a drive. It will take you about 7 and a half hours to get to Lake Tahoe. It is not the most exciting drive through Goldfield, Tonopah, Hawthorne and Yerrington. But the pay-off is worth it.


Lake Tahoe offers breath taking views of the surrounding Mountains along with every watersport you could think of. Take a kayak out for the afternoon or rent a speedboat and tour the entire lake. You could also rent a bike and ride the bike path up the Truckee Rive...

Talkin' Baseball ~ Willie, Mickey and the Duke ~ Terry Cashman






"Talkin' Baseball (Willie, Mickey & The Duke)" is a 1981 song written and performed by Terry Cashman. The song describes the history of American major league baseball from the 1950s to the beginning of the 1980s.
