Buillding New Homes for Las Vegas Families

For many families, owning a new home is a dream come true. The pride, satisfaction and the sense of achievement in owning a home are one of the few great joys in life. This is the stage for the drama of life, where children will grow, where memories will be made. Nobody understand this better than American West Homes who has been building new homes since 1984.

Larry Canarelli, company founder of American West Homes, has a dream of his own. His goal has been to build new homes for the families of Las Vegas  where they can live and grow and that dream comes true each day with the families who choose American West to be the builder of their new home.

Canarelli formed American West Homes in 1984. Home by home, he built the company’s reputation as “The Best Built Homes in America”. He accomplished this by focusing on quality, superior construction, customer service and outstanding architecture. Larry puts his heart and soul into every home and neighborhood that American West builds. As a homebuilder, Larry is concerned about where American West builds neighborhoods and how their homeowners live in their homes. No other builder listens to the wants and needs of their homeowners more. American West’s home designs reflect how families live in them today.

“Families are what this business is all about,” said Canarelli. “I’ve learned to keep that in mind with each home that we build and with each new neighborhood we open. Las Vegas is the place where I and every American West employee is raising their family, so it’s easy to ask myself, ‘Could I live in this home?’ Our home designs are incomparable. We know how families in Las Vegas live because this is our city too. Our home designs have been awarded with numerous local and national awards. Homebuyers see the quality and superior construction when they walk through our homes.”

Today’s families spend more time at home and place a greater importance on the community in which they reside than ever before. Understanding this importance has led American West to pioneer communities in the most desirable Southern Nevada locations and ensuring that those communities are family friendly. As a local builder, Larry has the foresight and knowledge of area amenities and growth throughout the valley. He is committed to designing communities and neighborhoods to the best advantage of homebuyers.

Canarelli’s dream for his Las Vegas based company is coming true. He sees the happiness that families living in an American West home have nurtured and the memories that have been made. Like passing down a treasured heirloom, living in an American West home has become a family tradition.

American West is currently selling at 9 different communities located throughout the Las Vegas valley. The home designs range from 1,608 to 4,770 sq. ft. For more information on any of American West’s communities, visit their website at www.AmericanWestHomes.com or call (702) 308-1111.


Benefits of A New Home

The National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) has declared April to be New Homes Month. To help celebrate New Homes Month, we thought we would share with you some benefits of owning a new home:

  • New homes feature designs that suit modern lifestyles, with open space layouts, high ceilings, large windows, innovative kitchens and design features such as laundry rooms located near bedrooms, walk-in closets and large pantries. New homes are built for the way families live today.
  • New home buyers enjoy the ability to choose the finishes, fixtures, flooring, paint colors, and more that suite their preferences, without the hassle or cost of changing the previous owner’s taste.
  • Even though new homes tend to be larger, energy costs are about 10 percent lower in new homes compared to existing homes. Today’s new homes are built with environmentally-friendly features that make the home more comfortable and can save the home owners on energy costs. With an American West new home, these features are included in your home.
  • New homes are safer with newer construction materials and electrical wiring that can accommodate modern appliances and components such as high-definition televisions, security systems, complex lighting and audio setups.
  • New homes come with a warranty.
  • New homes not only benefit the home owner, they benefit the community. The estimated one-year local impact of building 100 single-family homes in a typical metro area include: $21.1 million in local income, $2.2 million in taxes and other revenue for local governments and 324 local jobs.
  • Today’s near-record low interest rates combined with the benefits of new construction make now the ideal time to achieve the American dream of homeownership in a brand-new home.

American West currently has 9 communities located throughout the Las Vegas valley with new home designs ranging from 1,608 to 4,770 square feet. Visit www.AmericanWesthomes.com for more information.

The New Home is Central to American Life

American West has been building homes for the families in Las Vegas since 1984 and we take great pride in being able to provide neighborhoods for families.   Your new home is where dreams thrive and the future takes shape. It is where families make lifelong memories, and children are nurtured so they can build a better tomorrow.

Owning the home that plays such an important role in their lives is a cherished ideal for most families. They know that homeownership promotes social stability and is critical in creating wealth and providing financial security.

Housing and homeownership are also critical to a strong and prosperous nation. New home construction spurs productivity, creates jobs for millions of Americans and generates revenues for all levels of government.

Homeownership has always been – and continues to be – the single best long-term investment for most Americans. It is a primary source of wealth and financial security for many households, helping to provide for education, retirement and more. Home owners consider homeownership and retirement savings to be their best investments and those most likely to pay off the most for them and their families.

Although there are many financial aspects to homeownership, a home cannot be valued in monetary terms alone. Not only can homeownership be a stepping stone to greater financial well-being, it provides a permanent place to call home and great personal satisfaction.

Let us help make your dream of a new home come true today! Every American West home is known for its quality construction, abundance of included features, and superior customer service. The value that is built into every American West home is incomparable.
