April is New Homes Month

Your home is where dreams thrive and your future takes shape. It is where lifelong memories are made and where families grow and nurture. Owning a home is a cherished idea for most people. American West has always taken great pride in being able to make the dream of a new home come true for so many families in Las Vegas.

Homeownership has always been and continues to be the single best long-term investment of most families. A recent Freddie Mac survey showed that Americans have more than $10.8 trillion of equity in their homes and for most families, home equity represents the largest share of their net worth.

Housing also plays a vital role to local, state and national economics. It accounts for about 15 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product.

NAHB (National Association of Home Builders) analysis of the broad impact of new construction shows that building 100 average single-family homes generates:

  • 297 jobs
  • $28.0 million in wage and business income
  • $11.1 million in taxes and revenue for state, local and federal government

April is New Homes Month and it is a perfect time to buy a new American West home. The benefits of a new home are enormous to not only your family but also to the Las Vegas economy.

With 9 communities located throughout the Las Vegas Valley, there is sure to be a perfect American West home for you. Our sales offices are open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
