Southwest Las Vegas

Southwest Las Vegas Communities are part of a strong developmental movement of new homes. For decades the area has been barren desert with an occasional home. Now, it is a thriving location for Las Vegas residents looking for a comfortable way of life. Communities like Rhodes Ranch and the expansive Mountains Edge master-planned community offer home buyers a great variety of housing options. Styles, prices, and amenities vary considerably from community to community. Hundreds of new homes are popping up in skillfully crafted neighborhoods. Trees and vegetation are imported turning the desert into an oasis. Some of the larger communities surround golf courses and some have access to community swimming pools and other recreational facilities.

The I-215 was recently completed in that area of town and it provides nonstop travel along the southwest end of the beltway. As new Las Vegas real estate developments are established, new roads are added or enhanced. In the next few years, considerable work will be done in the area to cater to the vast number of new residents.

Like the northwest, there are land-sellers and developers who have custom home lots. Home buyers can build a house to their specifications and according to their time frames. Land values have increased a great deal over the last decade and are expected to climb over the next decade.

Quality Las Vegas home builders are responsible for the construction and development of southwest Las Vegas communities. They often offer incentives and warranties to care for their customers.

Many southwest Las Vegas homes have great views of the mountains in the south and west of the valley. Some homes can see the Strip, and many are built near parks or golf courses. The surroundings of these homes offer spectacular vistas.

Mountain’s Edge – SW
This master-planned community located in the southwest portion of the Las Vegas valley boasts more than 500 acres of land devoted to open space, parks, and trail systems. With an eye towards the future, the 22 different homebuilders developing Mountain’s Edge build to Energy Star standards, saving money on utility bills for homeowners, and saving natural resources for us all. Located near Rainbow Blvd. and Blue Diamond Road, Mountain’s Edge conveniently resides within Clark County and is served by Interstates 15, 215 and 515 and several other major roadways. When complete, the community will offer 12,500 homes for sale in dozens of different Clark County neighborhoods. Each neighborhood in Mountain’s Edge offers its own set of amenities, including swimming pools, neighborhood parks, views, exercise areas, athletic courts, and walking trails. 


Exploration Park opened in May 2007, built on 80 acres at the community’s main entrance and features volleyball courts, horseshoe pits, picnic areas, and an amphitheater. It also includes a western-theme park which blends elements of the community’s geography and history. Behind the building facades are climbing structures, slides, and other equipment. Dirt streets line the town square capturing the Main Street appearance and sense of the Old West. The streets of the town square lead to play areas featuring covered wagon play structures, rocking horses tied to hitching posts, and a water tower splash park.

Exploration Peak rises 2,846 feet and offers a series of hiking trails, ranging from leisurely to more challenging hikes. A 280-acre regional park is planned near the center of the community with adult and youth baseball fields, multi-use sports fields, picnic areas, and children’s playgrounds.

Arroyo Market Square, on Rainbow Boulevard at the Las Vegas Beltway, has welcomed nine big-box retailers since it opened late last year. This affords residents in this area convenient “one-stop shopping” in a convenient location.
