We Build Homes, Not Just Houses

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 baseball. 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?

American West believes in building homes and not just houses. Since 1984, we have welcomed more than 18,000 homeowners into our family and have been privileged to be a part of many heartfelt memories. We know how important a home and home ownership is to everyone. Our neighborhoods are the best planned in Las Vegas. As you walk through our homes, you will see the commitment to cutting-edge design that is highlighted by amazing architectural features.

Buying a new home is one of the biggest investments most people will ever make in their lifetime. Don’t you want the reassurance that 10 years from now 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. Our reputation for the Best Built Homes has stood since the first home we built in 1984 and continues to grow with every new home we build.

We love helping make the dreams of home ownership come true for the families in Las Vegas. It’s one of the many reasons why we have been doing it for so long.

We look forward to being a part of building the foundation for your lifetime memories.

The Las Vegas Housing Market is Strong

While 2016 was a good year for the housing industry, with housing starts up 5% from 2015, 2017 is on its way to being even better. Job growth is fueling population growth, which is fueling housing demands. According to Realtor.com, even though interest rates have been rising, causing mortgage rates to increase, housing demands are still high, especially in hot markets like Las Vegas.

In fact, the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors says the Las Vegas real estate market saw moderate price growth even during the slower winter months, which is a good sign for the stronger spring and summer selling seasons. “We continue to see a strong demand for housing,” reveals GLVAR president David J. Tina. “Combined with a tight supply, I think our home prices and home sales may continue to get a boost from the positive economic news we’ve been enjoying.”

Real estate experts also point out that though rates are rising, mortgage credit will become easier to obtain due to slightly loosened lending standards.

All of this is strengthening the Las Vegas housing market. As the Las Vegas Business Press found when they surveyed a wide variety of business and economic leaders in January, optimism is truly the watchword. From tourism and gaming, to banking and health care, and housing, they all predicted that 2017 will be a banner year for growth, new projects, and economic success.

As Larry Canarelli, Founder of American West Homes concludes, “Everything we’re seeing shows a stronger economy and shows us moving in the right direction and we’re happy to be building so many new homes for so many great families in an amazing city.”

This award is unique because it is not given to recognize sales. Rather it is given to someone who is a true ambassador for American West.

As David says, “I love helping people. I try to be a real person rather than a sales person, looking at the process from their point of view. I try to give them good information so they can make a decision, and show them the benefits of buying an American West home.

“My favorite part of my job as a sales consultant is giving people their house keys. Buyers are so happy when they get their keys… they cry because they are so happy!

“I love working at American West. It is a fantastic, family-owned company that really cares about its buyers and its employees. We’re building so much more than just quality homes here.”

Stop Paying Rent And Become An American West Homeowner

Selling people on the idea of homeownership isn’t usually too hard. After all, it’s the quintessential American dream. From the sense of security to the sense of community, not to mention the financial benefits, the advantages of owning a home – especially an American West Home – are clear.

Our new homes combine unmatched value, prime locations, well-planned neighborhoods, and the newest amenities to create the best new homes and communities in Las Vegas. Plus, we offer the lowest price per square foot around! 

Still on the fence? Totally understandable. Deciding to buy a new home is among the biggest financial decisions that many people make. The advisability of buying versus renting depends on many things – location, financial stability, future plans and lifestyle preferences. Here are a few reasons to consider buying a home instead of renting:

  1. Building equity. As a renter, your monthly payments only benefits the landlord. Mortgage payments made by homeowners build equity for you.
  2. The home will be yours. As a renter, you have a limited ability to personalize your living space. As an owner, you can have things just as you want and everything is brand new.
  3. A measure of inflation protection. Studies by Case-Shiller suggest that, over the long term, housing has beaten inflation by a couple of percentage points a year.
  4. It is forced savings. Part of a mortgage payment goes towards the principle repayment. You’re paying yourself by building equity. As a forced monthly savings, it is a good discipline.
  5. Stable housing costs. The curse of renting is the inevitable increase. With a fixed-rate mortgage, the payments are fixed for the life of the loan, a clear advantage over rental market fluctuations.
  6. Tax benefits. Homeowners enjoy tax deductions on interest payments and property taxes.
  7. Controlling your destiny. A renter is always at the mercy of the landlord. As a homeowner, the power is in your hands.
  8. You’ll get a better home. It’s getting harder to find a good rental. If you want the best home, in the best neighborhood, you are better off buying.

Always consider the true cost of renting, investing your money – month after month – in something you don’t actually own. Instead, turn that rent payment into a down payment on a home of your own.

Quit throwing your money away. Buy an American West home in Las Vegas.
