American West in Top 5 for New Home Sales

It is a great time to buy a new home in Las Vegas. We are thrilled to be in the Top Five of all the homebuilders for the most number of Net Sales for the month of May. We were able to accomplish this task with 9 communities ideally located throughout the Las Vegas Valley while all the other builders on this list have 20+ communities.

American West is currently the largest residential land holder in all of Las Vegas. We have been the highest bidder of land at the last four BLM auctions held since 2013. Of the $105M of land the company has purchased since 2013, $35M has come from BLM land auctions. The huge cash investment required for residential land underscores why American West remains the only private builder in Las Vegas who can compete with the large public builders.

Being in this position, allows us the opportunity to continue doing what we love to do, provide new homes for the families of Las Vegas for many, many more years to come.

Watch a small sampling of our new homes currently being built in the Las Vegas Valley.

Top 10 Housing Desires

A recent survey of 10,000 households by The Demand Institute shows that one in three U.S. households say they plan to move in the next five years. The research reveals several unmet housing-related desires – gaps between what Americans say they have currently and what they say they want in their next home.

The following are the top 10 housing desires (and how a new American West home meets each one):

1.    Very energy efficient with lower monthly utility costs.

A newly built home is 30 percent more energy efficient than homes built in the early 2000’s. Every new American West home includes a variety of energy efficient features that contribute to improved home quality and homeowner comfort and that help to lower energy demand and costs. As a local builder, it is important to us to design energy efficient homes that fit the needs of our specific southwest climate. These features are included in every new American West home.

2.    Requires little or no renovation or improvements.

Our homes are NEW which means everything in it is brand new. You get to select your appliances, your flooring, paint colors and other design elements that suit your personal preferences not someone else’s. A new home is built to the latest safety standards and building codes. A new home also comes with a warranty.

3.    Has an updated kitchen with modern appliances and fixtures.

American West homes are renowned for our gourmet kitchens. They feature gourmet cook centers with state-of-the art appliances, center dining islands with pendant lighting, granite countertops and backsplash, beautiful cabinetry and tons of counter space.

4.    A home I can stay in as I get older.

Our variety of home designs range from 1,798 to 5,487 square feet and feature 3 to 7 bedrooms so there is something for everyone.

5.    Home is located in a safe neighborhood with low crime.

A new home also means a brand new community. Everything around you is brand new. We build in the best areas in the Las Vegas Valley.

6.    Fits my budget, without requiring sacrifices.

American West is the lowest price per square foot in the Las Vegas Valley. The average price per square foot in Las Vegas for new homes is $145.55. American West’s average is $114.

7.    Offers a lot of privacy from neighbors.

Our average size homesites are some of the largest in the entire Las Vegas Valley so there is plenty of room and privacy in both your front and back yards.

8.    Has a lot of storage space.

With spacious walk-in closets, pantries and lots of additional storage options in our homes, lack of storage will not be an issue.

9.    Has a good landlord that is responsive to maintenance requests.

With a new home, you do not need to worry about a landlord. Our new homes come with a warranty.

10.  Is a good long-term investment.

Homeownership has always been and continues to be the single best long-term investment for most families. Home equity represents the largest share of net worth for most families. In addition, interest rates are still at record lows.
