A very well thought out piece of Pahrump property recently listed and sold locally.
Property in Pahrump has many unique differentiations from property in Las Vegas. For example it is rare to see a septic tank or well from our large and colorful brother to the West, but Pahrump has it’s fair share. When a well is on the property it requires special attention that can translate into special expenses. Well water is typically very rich in minerals, since it is taken directly from the ground. We must use a water softening system to make sure laundry is not rock hard when removed from a mineral bath, and that shampoo and soap lather. Hard water is also a quick destroyer of water heaters, which can be an expensive replacement on any property size. Pahrump property with wells will require well pumps, which are around $1000 to repair or up to $10,000 to install, depending on the size and quality.
Compared to city hookups these expenses and burdens can seem like an obvious choice, but city services have their own special considerations in Pahrump. The water minimum monthly fee is not low and it only keeps going up. While you have complete control over when and how much to spend on your won systems, there are penalties and late fees when someone else is running the show. In Pahrump we do not use natural gas or have a natural gas service provider, so we rely on propane suppliers. The problem with propane is that it costs a great deal more than natural gas, so it can be a sticker shock for anyone moving from Las Vegas to Pahrump. The large tanks also have a minimum monthly use of around $200 to keep them viable for the propane suppliers, so a single household is usually not enough volume for an average Pahrump property.
