American West’s Love for Las Vegas!

The commitment to Las Vegas from Larry Canarelli and his company, American West Homes, grows out of a love for the community. As a local, family owned homebuilder, American West has been providing homes for the families of Las Vegas since 1984. Everyone at American West is embedded in the Las Vegas way of life and involved in this amazing community.

“I love Las Vegas.  I think this is a wonderful place to live and raise a family.  And I always have.  Since the day I got here, I’ve worked hard to make Las Vegas a beautiful place.  My personal involvement is simply a carry through of my philosophy to help make a better Las Vegas,” said Canarelli

For Larry Canarelli, being part of Las Vegas means giving back to the community. He has raised his family here. He has coached over 20 children’s sports teams. He participates with school boards and actively gives to local schools. He has served on the board for many local charities. In recognition of his role as a leader and supporter of the Las Vegas community, a school in Coronado Ranch is named in his honor…The Lawrence and Heidi Canarelli Middle School.

Larry’s philosophy and commitment has also carried through in his company’s efforts and activities. 

“As a home builder, we have the opportunity to benefit the community in many ways.  By helping schools, building parks and being involved with community programs, we can help provide an environment where people feel comfortable raising their children,” Canarelli said.

American West has built over 15,000 homes in Las Vegas over the past 25 years.   Canarelli’s concern for the community is reflected through his involvement in every planning stage of each American West neighborhood.

“Our commitment to making a better Las Vegas is seen in each of the homes we have built since day one,” Canarelli said.   The company has won numerous local and national architectural design awards since its beginnings in 1984. 

“We want to see Las Vegas developed where quality of life is preserved and enhanced, at its highest possible level.  For us, that starts with making our communities absolutely beautiful.  We do that in part with superior architectural designs, greenbelts, entry monumentation, state-of-the-art schools and larger yards,” he said.

“As we enter 2010, home shoppers are continuing to discover that they can get more for their money when buying a brand-new home from American West,” Canarelli said. “American West offers more included features than other builders for some of the best prices per square foot in Las Vegas. We anticipate 2010 to be a great year as more and more homebuyers discover that their dream of owning an American West home can come true.”

American West is currently selling at 9 communities located throughout the Las Vegas valley. Home designs range from 1,216 to 4,770 square feet with prices starting as low as $188,500. The builder’s collection of beautiful home designs reflect American West’s tradition of architectural excellence, quality construction, innovative floorplans, pool sized backyards and superior customer service. These are some of the reasons why American West is one of the most successful, privately owned homebuilders in the nation.  Our sales centers are open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

The “American West Difference” Continues in 2010

American West homeowners insist there’s an “American West difference” – and that it contributes to the enjoyment of their new home and neighborhood and that this “difference” is what sets American West Homes apart from other homebuilders. According to Larry Canarelli, president of American West, in addition to our homeowners, many home shoppers are discovering that they can get more “bang for their buck” with the purchase of a new American West home.

“As we enter 2010, home shoppers are continuing to discover that they can get more for their money when buying a brand-new home from American West,” Canarelli said. “American West offers more included features than other builders for some of the best prices per square foot in Las Vegas. We anticipate 2010 to be a great year as more and more homebuyers discover that their dream of owning an American West home can come true.”

The difference in an American West neighborhood is unmistakable. The pride of ownership in the homes is overwhelming. “I have been dreaming of owning an American West home since 2002”, said Andrea Jordan, American West homebuyer. “For seven years I have wanted to be the owner of an American West home and now my dream is coming true. This is huge for my family, it will be the home we grow old in. This is the best Christmas ever for my family.”

“We’ve listened to our buyers and met their demands for the newest and best amenities offered in new homes,” Canarelli said.  “Incorporating our buyers’ needs and dreams into all of our homes… That’s the key to American West’s unprecedented success. We build to meet the needs of Las Vegas families.  We combine unmatched value, outstanding locations, our trademark huge homes, and the newest amenities to create an unparalleled new home package.”

American West is currently selling at 9 communities located throughout the Las Vegas valley. Home designs range from 1,216 to 4,770 square feet with prices starting as low as $188,500. The builder’s 2010 collection of homes will continue the tradition of architectural excellence, quality construction, innovative floorplans, pool sized backyards and superior customer service. 

“Each American West community is a little different and appeals to different types of buyers. First-time home buyers, growing families, empty nesters and those seeking luxury residences are all discovering homes that meet their personal needs at American West neighborhoods,” Canarelli said.

“Today’s home buyers are seeking homes constructed by quality builders with established track records, who stand behind their homes. We are a privately owned business that has been building in the Las Vegas Valley for over 25 years with thousands of happy homeowners. American West Homes is the only builder in the nation who has won the ACE Award for construction excellence twice. We look forward to continue providing quality homes and to exceed the expectations of our buyers in 2010,” he said.

“We’re offering amenities that no other builder in our price range can offer,” said Canarelli.  “For example, our included elevators take our split-level homes to a whole new dimension. Because of their cost, they are usually limited to very expensive custom homes but we include them in the base price of our homes.”  Included elevators can be found in homes offered at Kensington, Silverado Springs, Windsor and Woodbridge.

The homes built by American West are certified as not only Energy Star® but also Energy Plus. American West was the first builder in Las Vegas to receive both these certifications. With the Energy Plus certification, American West homes are twice as energy efficient as a home that only qualifies as Energy Star®.

All of American West’s energy-efficient features are included in their homes. These features include: Carrier® 14-SEER natural gas heat and electric central air-conditioning with Puron®, the environmentally sound refrigerant; R13 insulation in exterior walls and R30 in ceilings;  energy-efficient radiant-heat barrier roof sheathing; PROInstaller E2S Complete Weatherproofing System; fully-insulated, fiberglass, front-entry door; vinyl-framed, dual-paned, Low-E windows and sliding glass doors; 50-gallon, quick-recovery, natural-gas water heater; and water-conserving Moen faucets and showerheads.

“It’s an impressive list of energy-conserving products. These products are in addition to the building practices and products we already utilize to meet Energy Star standards and they come at no extra cost to the homebuyer,” said Canarelli.

As a home builder for over 25 years, Canarelli cited buyers’ appreciation of their homes as a great source of satisfaction.

 “I put my name on every home American West builds.  I’m proud of that.  Knowing from our homeowners that they’re pleased with their home brings the greatest delight to me as a home builder,” Canarelli said. “My dream has always been to provide beautiful, affordable homes that all families could live in. That dream turned into a reality and can be seen throughout the 70 neighborhorhoods that American West has built throughout the Las Vegas valley.”

Creating attractive communities and sound investments for homeowners is no new venture for American West. “By using foresight, we only build in the best areas,” said Canarelli.  “For example, we’re adjacent to the master-planned areas yet we’re able to give the buyer much more house for the money.  Factoring in all the new schools, parks, shopping and dining, buyers get every bit the livability of master-planned communities without the high monthly fees,” he said.

Canarelli refers to L.I.D. fees.  “We think it’s proper for a developer to pay the infrastructure fees up front, rather than passing them onto the homeowner through expensive monthly L.I.D. fees.”

 The company is in the process of developing a planned community in the southwest, Highlands Ranch.  Upon completion, it will include over 2,000 homes and will be home to three schools and two parks. The builder is currently selling at 5 neighborhoods – Lexington, Fairmont, Kensington, Newcastle and Windsor. These neighborhoods feature two-story and split-level home designs ranging from 1,216 to 4,770 square feet with up to six bedrooms.

Another planned community in the southwest part of the valley is Coronado Ranch, the jewel of the southwest. American West is currently selling at Kingsbridge, Promontory and Woodbridge. The two-story and split-level home designs range from 1,486 to 4,770 square feet with up to six bedrooms. Due to the demand of this area, the builder will be starting a new community, The Reserve, after the first of the year.

The planned community of Silverado Ranch in the south, adjacent to Green Valley was pioneered by the builder and currently features Silverado Springs with two-story and split-level home designs ranging from 2,363 to 3,790 square feet with up to 5 bedrooms.

Founded in 1984, American West has become one of the most successful, privately owned homebuilders in the nation.  American West sales centers are open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. For community directions and more information, please visit www.AmericanWestHomes.com  or call (702) 308-1111.
