Stop Paying Rent And Become An American West Homeowner

Selling people on the idea of homeownership isn’t usually too hard. After all, it’s the quintessential American dream. From the sense of security to the sense of community, not to mention the financial benefits, the advantages of owning a home – especially an American West Home – are clear.

Our new homes combine unmatched value, prime locations, well-planned neighborhoods, and the newest amenities to create the best new homes and communities in Las Vegas. Plus, we offer the lowest price per square foot around! 

Still on the fence? Totally understandable. Deciding to buy a new home is among the biggest financial decisions that many people make. The advisability of buying versus renting depends on many things – location, financial stability, future plans and lifestyle preferences. Here are a few reasons to consider buying a home instead of renting:

  1. Building equity. As a renter, your monthly payments only benefits the landlord. Mortgage payments made by homeowners build equity for you.
  2. The home will be yours. As a renter, you have a limited ability to personalize your living space. As an owner, you can have things just as you want and everything is brand new.
  3. A measure of inflation protection. Studies by Case-Shiller suggest that, over the long term, housing has beaten inflation by a couple of percentage points a year.
  4. It is forced savings. Part of a mortgage payment goes towards the principle repayment. You’re paying yourself by building equity. As a forced monthly savings, it is a good discipline.
  5. Stable housing costs. The curse of renting is the inevitable increase. With a fixed-rate mortgage, the payments are fixed for the life of the loan, a clear advantage over rental market fluctuations.
  6. Tax benefits. Homeowners enjoy tax deductions on interest payments and property taxes.
  7. Controlling your destiny. A renter is always at the mercy of the landlord. As a homeowner, the power is in your hands.
  8. You’ll get a better home. It’s getting harder to find a good rental. If you want the best home, in the best neighborhood, you are better off buying.

Always consider the true cost of renting, investing your money – month after month – in something you don’t actually own. Instead, turn that rent payment into a down payment on a home of your own.

Quit throwing your money away. Buy an American West home in Las Vegas.
