American West Homes is celebrating being No. 1 in new-home closings in Las Vegas for July. According to SalesTraq’s July 2013 New Home Closings Monthly Report, American West closed 78 homes throughout its eight communities in Las Vegas, making it the top builder throughout the valley for new-home closings. The report also showed that American West is No. 1 in highest value with a price of $323,348 per house.
Closing on a home is when a family moves into its newly constructed home and is the final step in completing a real estate transaction.
“As a local, family-owned company, we take great pride in the homes we build and the communities that have helped shape the growth of Las Vegas,” said Larry Canarelli, American West Co. founder. “Each of our homeowners are a part of the American West family and we are extremely grateful that they have chosen us to be the builder of their new home. We recently moved in our 16,000th Las Vegas homeowner, which was a great source of pride for myself and everyone in our company. Nothing gives me greater pride than the happiness I see when our homeowners move into their new homes.”
He said the goal of American West has always been simple — provide beautiful, affordable homes that all families could live in. Owning a home is at the heart of the American Dream.
Besides getting married and starting a family, it is one of the biggest decisions that is made in a lifetime, he said. It means a lifetime of memories — family dinners, holidays, basketball in the driveway, cookouts in the backyard and watching your children grow up.
For more than 29 years, Las Vegas families have chosen to create these memories in a new American West home, he said.
Based on additional information from SalesTraq, American West is the lowest price per square foot with an average of $100 per square foot. Other builders in Las Vegas average as high as $130 per square foot.
The value that is built into each American West new home is one of the reasons it has been No. 2 in the number of new-home sales contracts since the beginning of the year, just behind market leader DR Horton, Canarelli said. “We build the largest homes in Las Vegas and show the highest value per home in the valley.”
“Our new-home designs are incomparable to other builders. I personally put my heart and soul into every home we build. Our homebuyers see the quality and value we are known for when they walk through our homes. We are thrilled with our success in regards to new-home sales and new-home closings, and August is looking to be just as successful for us.”
American West is selling at eight communities throughout the Las Vegas Valley. The designs range from 1,608 to 4,770 square feet. Each American West community is a little different and appeals to different types of buyers.
