Why Did This Family Choose Silverado Summit?

Las Vegas native Tracy Covert and her family have the distinction of being the first buyers at Silverado Summit. They were already satisfied American West homeowners, so when the time came to look for a larger home, choosing to build a new American West home in Silverado Summit wasn’t a big leap. “We looked at many different houses on the market, both resale and new. We were already familiar with American West and the quality of their homes, because we currently live in one. Silverado Summit fit our family’s needs best.”

In fact, Tracy and other members of her extended family already live in other phases of Silverado Ranch. Tracy’s immediate family has lived in the neighborhood for three years, so they know it and like it. “Our primary focus when choosing a new home was keeping the kids in their current schools while finding a plan large enough to accommodate our family of six comfortably. Silverado Summit is still in the same area we currently reside in so the kids didn’t have to change schools.”

Tracy and her family loved the distinctive plans American West is offering at Silverado Summit. “We’ve seen so many floorplans, and few stand out these days. But this one was unique in that it had three levels, which provided my mother, who lives with us, her own private space on the lower level to enjoy. We love the open layout. And the kitchen is stunning. The other feature that really stood out was the front deck, which will be nice to sit on while the kids play outside.”

When asked what she liked best about American West, Tracy replied, “The buying process is fun! I have really enjoyed the experience. Todd White has been a pleasure to work with, and has kept us informed along the way. We are so excited and could not be more thrilled to be in our new home!”

Tracy and her family chose The Riley home which measures 3,990 square feet. They could not be happier with their choice and have loved the new memories they have already created and look forward to a lifetime more of them. We are thrilled that Tracy and her family chose us to be the builder of their new home.

 

How To Make Your New House Feel Like “Home”

Moving is stressful, whether it’s around the corner or across the country. Getting settled in and making your new house feel like home is always a priority. No matter how quickly you start the process, though, it takes a while for the new space to feel like it’s yours. Here are some tips for making things feel like “home” a little more quickly.

Sort out the closets and dressers first. Not being able to find your fleecy PJs or a favorite sweater, much less underwear, socks and shoes, will only make things rougher in the morning.

Stick to your routines. Especially if you have kids. If possible, set things up like they were in your old house – coat and/or key hooks, the cereal station, laundry baskets. Keep to bedtimes, and any other routines – like Sunday pancakes or nightly walks.

Make it smell like home. Scent is our strongest sense. It immediately transports us – and can be instantly comforting. So, if your old house smelled like bread, start baking! Or if you have a favorite scented candle, light it up. At the very least, buy some fresh cut flowers. Never underestimate the effect of freesia, lavender or lilies.

Make it sound like home. Your favorite tunes wafting through your new halls will also help make the space feel more familiar. And putting area rugs down on the floor will help kill the hollowness you might be experiencing. Open the windows so you can hear the sounds of your new neighborhood.

Fix up the kid’ rooms before you do the rest of the house. They’re going to be feeling out of sorts, so letting them unpack and set up their rooms will make them feel happier and more secure. Plus, you’ll have a safe place for them to hang while you’re trying to sort everything else out.

Don’t forget the outside! It may seem nuts when you have a million other things to do, but you’ll see. Hang a wreath on the door, plant some flowers in a pot on the porch, set up the patio furniture. You’ll feel more welcome when you come home, and your neighbors will see that you care about your home’s “face”.

 

 

 

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.

Home is Where Memories Are Made

A home is much more than 4 walls and a roof. It is where your child learns to crawl and then walk. It is where they learn to swim or throw a basketball. It is where your children grow. Home is where family and friends gather to help celebrate the milestones in your life. Home is where the memories of your life are made.

Think of a happy childhood memory. More than likely, that memory revolves around the home you grew up in. A home that was filled with love and joy. A home that your parents were proud to own. Why should you settle for anything less now? Owning a new home should give you a sense of pride. There is a reason homeownership is called the American Dream.

American West believes in building homes and not just houses. Over the past 30 years, we have welcomed more than 16,000 homeowners into our family and have been privileged to be a part of many heartfelt memories. We know how important a home and homeownership is to everyone. You may think that the most important thing about purchasing a new home is the best deal you can get. We believe it should be more about the type of value and quality you are getting when purchasing that home. Don’t you want the confidence that 20 years from now whether you are sending your child off to college, watching your first grandchild crawl on your floor, or enjoying your retirement years, that your home is still the envy of all your family and friends? Don’t you want reassurance that the quality and value of your home is still there? American West stands behind the belief that there should be no other answer than, “yes” and the proof of that can be found in every home that we build.

Let American West help build the foundation for your lifelong memories. Find your dream home at www.AmericanWestHomes.com

 

Reasons to Buy A New Home in 2014

The old saying goes that the three important things in real estate are location, location, location (American West does have some of the best locations in Las Vegas). Another important element is timing. Prospective homebuyers always fret about when is the right time to buy a new home. Here are reasons why you should buy in 2014:

ECONOMIC RECOVERY

Although it’s far from setting a record pace, the economy has turned a corner. And although we’re not out of the woods just yet, USA Today states that “as the economy continues to grow, it may make buying a home even more attractive.”

HOME PRICES

Analysts predict that home prices will increase in 2014, which would make some homebuyers cautious about buying a new home. However, prices are expected to increase slowly and if the economy continues to rebound, prices will increase more steeply after 2014, meaning that 2014 may be the sweet spot to purchase a new home. The other great news is that as home values rise, more homebuyers will see their equity rising.

INTEREST RATES

Interest rates are still at record lows. It is anticipated that they will rise in 2014 but more importantly, continue to climb well into 2015, so it makes sense to buy this year before rates could go higher.

OWNERSHIP

Although these are reasons to buy this year, the joys of homeownership cannot be overstated. Homeownership brings a deep sense of emotional satisfaction that no money could ever buy. It is the American Dream that everyone hopes comes true.

Visit any of our 7 communities today and let us help you discover how owning a new American West home may be easier than you think. We’ll build the home of your dreams, you fill it with lifelong memories.

Quality Assurance

American West’s first step to quality is making sure our homebuyer’s questions are answered and that they understand the sales and construction process. In addition to a sales and escrow representative, a Quality Assurance Manger is assigned to every home we build. Together with the construction team, they will provide specific expertise throughout construction.

The Quality Assurance Manager specializes in construction techniques and procedures. He meets with inspectors and architects to make sure your new home is built and finished to the highest standards. The Quality Assurance Manager’s primary job is to insure that your new home meets the highest construction standards required by American West.

Upon completion of the home, your Quality Assurance Manager will take you through a room to room New Home Demonstration. He will familiarize you with all of the home features and components. “It’s very important that our buyers feel comfortable with all of  the working components of their new home. It’s a great feeling to deliver a home that you’re proud to be a part of,” Ron Reynolds, American West Quality Assurance Manager.

At American West, we are committed to excellence. Part of that commitment is providing “Quality Assurance” that insures that each and every home is built to American West’s strict construction standards. A commitment that each of our homebuyers get to experience day after day. This is the American West difference.
