Reasons to Buy American West – Part 2

American West is proud that we are the largest local, family owned builder in Nevada. We are the only locally owned builder that can say they have been building new homes in Las Vegas since 1984. We were recently ranked 53 on the Builder 100, an annual ranking of the nation’s top homebuilders. The list was comprised mostly of national building companies who build throughout the United States.

There are many elements that make up the American West Difference. A “difference” that sets us apart from other builders. One of the main elements is that our company founder, Larry Canarelli puts his heart and soul into every home that American West builds and has since the start of the company in 1984. How do other homebuilders know how Las Vegas homeowners live in their homes if they live out of state? We know because Las Vegas is our home too. American West takes such pride in our homes and communities because we are a part of the city that is our home. Everyone at American West lives, plays and works in Las Vegas and most of us live in an American West home.

American West’s neighborhoods are the best masterfully planned in the valley and located in the most desirable locations. We understand that today’s families spend more time at home and place a greater importance in the community in which they reside. Our company is committed to designing masterfully planned communities and neighborhoods according to the wants and needs of our homebuyers. Since 1984, American West has been operating with a straightforward philosophy – to build spacious, beautiful, and affordable homes in the best areas for the families in Las Vegas.

Our commitment to excellence is evident in everything we do and is the reason why we hold the reputation for the “Best Built Homes in America“. So when you buy a new home built by American West, you can take comfort in knowing that you have bought a home built by Southern Nevada’s Number One Homebuilder.

The Importance of Drowning Prevention

It’s that time of year when more and more families are spending time in swimming pools. Unfortunately, drowning is the leading cause of unintentional deaths in Southern Nevada for young children. There was a total of 96 fatal drownings in Southern Nevada between 2000 and 2012. That’s an average of 7 child drownings each year.

Constant adult supervision is essential to preventing childhood drowning. These tragedies often occur while a caregiver is at home and there is a brief lapse of supervision.

A drowning can occur in seconds, in any water that cover’s a child’s nose and mouth including pools/spas, inflatable pools, bathtubs, toilets, buckets or natural bodies of water. It is extremely important for everyone to remember the simple rules to stay safe around the water.

THE A B C & D’S OF DROWNING PREVENTION:

A is for Adult Supervision

B is for Barriers (for your pool)

C is for Classes (Swim Lessons & CRP)

D is for Devices (PFD’s/Life Jackets and Rescue Tools)

It is also a smart idea to make sure you have a phone by the pool. In the case of an emergency, you do not want to have to run back into the house to look for a phone.

The ABC & D’s of Drowning Prevention

Have a safe and happy summer!

Reasons to Buy American West

  •  Your home, not ours

Unlike other builders, American West let’s you choose the home you want, on the homesite you want with the exterior style and color you want. You also get to choose your front yard landscaping. This feature is usually only found in custom homes.

  • Quality Craftsmanship & Construction

Your new home is brand new and is built by a builder who is the only one in the nation to be awarded the ACE (Award for Construction Excellence) Award twice. We don’t have to build to the highest standards. We just do.

  • Confidence and Reassurance

Purchasing a new home is one of the biggest investments that you will make in your lifetime. Today’s home buyers are seeking homes constructed by quality builders with established track records, who stand behind their homes. American West is a local, privately owned business that has been building in the Las Vegas valley since 1984 with thousands of happy homeowners.

Benefits of A Tankless Water Heater

One of the custom features that American West offers to our new homebuyers is a tankless water heater. Are you aware of the benefits of a tankless water heater?

Comfort & Convenience:

A tankless water heater allows you to enjoy a continuous flow of hot water. There is no more having to compromise on hot water usage – no more cold showers. There is a constant supply of hot water. It also allows you to run more appliances at the same time as you do not need to worry about running out of hot water.

A tankless water heater will also save you space. They take up significantly less space than traditional tank water heaters.

Savings:

A tankless water heater only heats water when you need it. You are not wasting energy heating unused water sitting in a tank. A traditional tank style water heater heats and reheats water all day long.

Safe & Clean:

A tankless water heater does not use water that has been stored in a tank.

Fewer Worries:

The lifespan of a tankless water heater is longer than a typical tank water heater. Their life expectancy is typically 20 years. And with a tankless model, the risk of water leaks and water damage is a thing of the past.

For more information or to see a tankless water heater in person, visit any of our 8 communities located throughout the Las Vegas valley. Information of all our communities and homes can be found at www.AmericanWestHomes.com

Reasons to Buy – Price Stability and Building Equity

Are you unsure about whether or not now is the best time to purchase a new home? Have you been “playing it safe” in regards to making a decision?

The best way to “play it safe” when it comes to buying a home is to actually buy a new home. And here’s why:

Studies show that owning a home is the best way to build household wealth. The sooner a person owns a home, the faster they begin to build up equity and wealth. When you buy a home, you are also purchasing price stability, knowing that you will pay the same monthly payment for the life of your 30-year fixed-rate mortgage.

Building equity, price stability, buying from a homebuilder who holds the reputation for the Best Built Homes in America, how much safer can you play it?

Reasons to Buy – Fantastic Interest Rates

Are you on the fence about whether you should buy your new American West home? The great news is that interest rates are still at historic lows.

Did you know that in 1980, interest rates were as high as 16% for a 30 Year Fixed-Rate Mortgage. In 1985, it was as high as 12%. 1990 saw it as high as 10% and in 1995 and 2000, it was as high as 8%. Between 2005 and 2010, it fluctuated between 6% and 5%. Today a 30 Year Fixed-Rate Mortgage is at 4% – the lowest it has been in a really long time.

The unfortunate thing is that if inflation picks ups, you won’t see mortgages rates this low again in your lifetime. So don’t hesitate, come into any of our 8 beautiful communities and let us help to make your dream of a new American West home come true. And with our partnership with our Preferred Lender, imortgage, obtaining a new home loan may be easier than you think.
