A Range of Housing Options.

Aerial view of housing

Published by the National Association of Realtors, the Housing Affordability Index (HAI) ranks from baseline of 100 (which equates to the median family income meeting loan qualification for a median home price). Henderson’s HAI number of 125 reveals a real estate market where residents can flex greater buying power, making it easier to find homes they’ll love for years to come.

And because of strategic foresight, Henderson’s 14 master-planned communities are also convenient to offices and businesses, reducing daily commutes, allowing residents to maintain lower vehicle miles (and higher life happiness—an incalculable value!)

Excellent public schools.

elementary students

Graduation rates are the highest in the region, and test scores are equally superior. Among schools in the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, fifth grade reading and math scores rank 7th and 12th, while seventh grade reading and math rank 17th and 29th.

Public recreation of resort-style quality.

hikers

Henderson’s sprawling network of trails sets the stage for an exhilarating panoramic playscape offering an impressive range of choices for hiking, biking, tennis, golf, swimming, ice skating and more. And while a few venues are private, most are public facilities like the beautiful and sustainably designed Heritage Park Aquatic Complex and Henderson’s new dual ice rink. While two pro sports franchises have made Henderson home, we’re also the place where everyone loves to play.
