Las Vegas, NV
Sin City might be a tempting retirement option for people who are drawn to the city’s glitz and glam. However, with one of the highest foreclosure rates in the country, particularly when it comes to bank-seized “vampire” and homeowner-abandoned “zombie” foreclosures, Las Vegas might not be as attractive as it seems, according to RealtyTrac. While the roulette wheels spin, the Las Vegas economy continues to suffer with negative job growth and an unemployment rate that’s 6 percent higher than the national average, according to Sperling’s BestPlaces. Worse, though, is locals’ poor access to doctors. Only 69.7 percent of Las Vegans have a usual source of health care, which is much lower than the national average at 82.4 percent, according to a study by the Commonwealth Fund.
