Naturally, while vacationing in Vegas, I couldn’t help but open the Real Estate section of Las Vegas classified. Considering “high-rise” living is a big part of Vegas, my eyes immediately focused on the High Rise-Mid Rise column. For a mere $229,000, you can pick up a condotel, fully furnished on the 29th floor of the MGM. Unfortunately, to the last owner it sold new for $710,000. What a deal.
Also, if you want to step it up a notch and own at Turnberry Pl., you can pick up a bank-owned unit for $479,000. The original price was not disclosed.
While gambling appeared to be down and after speaking with locals, the strip is in somewhat of a dull-drum slump. Food prices were higher than ever remembering in the past and deals were far and few between. At one sports book, the minimum bet of $300.00 on football was required in order to receive a drink ticket. Hopefully, better days are in store for “what happens in Vegas!”
