American West Believes Your Home Should Be Built Your Way Not Ours

As a homebuilder, we understand how important purchasing a new home is to any individual or family. We have been providing homes for the families of Las Vegas since 1984. We pride ourselves on being able to provide custom features and benefits to our homebuyers. Because this is your home and not ours, we leave the choices on how you will live in your new home up to you.

Our homebuyers are given the luxury of choosing their homesite and choosing what exact home they want on that homesite.

“We don’t say, ‘This home goes on this lot,’ like most builders. That decision is entirely up to the customer. You pick the homesite that suits you best, then we’ll build the home you want on it,” said Larry Canarelli, President of American West Homebuilding Group.

Homebuyers are also permitted to situate the placement of their home on their chosen home site. “Letting buyers plot their own house gives them the opportunity to maximize the yard space that’s most important to them,” he said. “Incorporating our buyers’ needs and dreams into each of our homes… that’s one of the fundamental keys to American West’s unprecedented success.”

As a company, it is important to us to have our homebuyers involved in all aspects of their home building process. We allow them to customize their home. They pick the homesite. They pick the floorplan. They pick the exterior color and roof tile. There is also a long list of other custom amenities offered. “We do things that help buyers turn their new house into a ‘home’’’, said Canarelli.

We realize that your new home will be a reflection of your family’s personality and values, so it’s with a sense of commitment, honor and pride that we build every American West home. Our homes are in the best neighborhoods, with great schools, parks, golf courses and shopping right at your doorstep. When you buy a home built by American West, you can take comfort in knowing that you’ve bought the best quality, choice and value in town.
