    Well the cost of buying a house dropped but the borrowing requirements have really tightened here. Rental prices have climbed. Utilities are one of the highest in the country. Food is very affordable.

    Jobs are nearly non existent unless it is medical. I see guys all over the valley on corners with huge hand painted signs saying they fix computers. That must mean something. Never saw anything for artists. Did you try job searches for Las Vegas? Most people look for jobs before moving. You could find yourself in tent city here quickly these days.

    Do not move to Vegas. Unemployment is over 10% and growing. Casinos are laying off management and other employees, taking away any bonuses, and cutting hours. State, county and cities have frozen hiring. The State has a one day non-paid mandatory furlough for those people who has jobs and cut benefits and increased insurance rates.
    Businesses are closing/bankrupt daily.

    The cost of living is like LA, high. Our power bills were just increased by $ 20 a month on average. Water is high. Food is trucked in and high. Prices in restaurants has increased.

    Apartments are high. Two bedroom is at leat $ 1400 in quality areas. Vegas has the highest foreclosure rate of housing because no one can afford their home with a 3% increase in property tax this past year though values went down.

    Sorry, not the place to move

    I lived in a 1 bedroom 1 bath apartment 950 sq ft in Summerlin, which is a nice part of town.
    Rent: $ 750
    Power: $ 75
    Natural Gas: $ 20
    Water: $ 30
    Trash/Sewer: $ 5
    Cable/Phone/Internet: $ 120
    Food costs are up to you – prices are only slightly higher than the midwest, i.e. milk is about $ 0.30 higher a gallon.
    Sales tax is 8% now.
    No income taxes, so only federal taxes are taken out of your check.

    If you made $ 3000 Oklahoma

    Comparable salary in Las Vegas, NV

    If you move from Oklahoma City, OK to Las Vegas

    Groceries will cost: 12% more
    Housing will cost: 62% more
    Utilities will cost: 4% more
    Transportation will cost: 8% more
    Healthcare will cost: 6% more

    About as much as anywhere else. The pay sets it’s self to support responsible people who live and work there. If you own a home, stay out of the Casinos and Lap Dance Bars.
