From Sacramento to Las Vegas: What to Expect When Moving

Then, learn about a moving company that can help you get there.  

A Lower Cost of Living 

While the cost of living in Las Vegas is higher than the national average, it’s much lower than Sacramento. Home prices in Vegas average $256,300 compared to Sacramento’s median home price of $313,700. You’ll also enjoy paying less for things like rent, groceries and products. 

Different Business Opportunities 

Sacramento is a hub for agriculture, energy, life science and higher education. Can you guess what Vegas’s top industry is? If you guessed tourism and gaming, you’re right! But, that’s not all that city has to offer. In 2017, Chief Executive Magazine named Nevada as the top state to do business with in the Western United States. Las Vegas has put itself on the map for being a city easy to find job opportunities. With more than 980,000 workers and a 5% unemployment rate, the workforce continues to improve. Besides tourism and gaming, there are industries in finance, healthcare and logistics.  

Endless Entertainment 

Sacramento is rich in history and culture. Numerous museums and structures detail the stories of the Gold Rush, Indians and religion. It’s also a fun city for sports, biking and shopping. But Las Vegas is the “Entertainment Capital of the World!” You’ll find world-famous casinos, high-end dining, live concerts and productions, art galleries and so much more. Anything you can think of, you’ll find it in Vegas.
