Aliante, located in North Las Vegas, Nevada, is a 1,900 acre master-planned community originally opened in May of 2003 by developer North Valley Enterprises. Aliante has been previously ranked on a list of the top five best-selling master-planned communities in the country.
At the time of it’s opening, Aliante is slated to include approximately 7,500 homes and where nearly 20,000 residents would call home; housing units in the community’s neighborhoods were priced between $130,000 and $200,000, while some larger homes, starting at 3,000 square feet, would sell for $270,000. While first opening in 2003, it took many more years for the community to be completely built out. Over the years, as prices in the region have dropped and subsequently risen again after the mid-2000’s housing bubble burst, prices are now significantly higher, coming in an average of $200,000 to $300,000 or higher.
There are several types of homes for sale in Aliante, from starter homes to large family style homes to retirement bungalows. In addition, there are more upscale luxury homes offered in the Club Aliante area. Floor plans range in size from a modest 1200 square feet to more than 4,000 square feet.
Average temperatures in the region range from highs of 104 degrees in July to lows of 36 degrees in January.

Upon completion, the community was replete with amenities for residents, including an extensive trail system, an 18-hole, 6,900-yard golf course, and 45 acres of park land that includes a man-made lake, an amphitheater, soccer fields and tennis and volleyball courts.
