Centex holds one-day sales event

Centex Homes' Opportunity Knocks promotion, a one-day sale, runs from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. today at all of the home builder's neighborhoods, according to operational marketing manager Jillian Lura.

Lura said the sale prices for each neighborhood will remain a mystery until 10 a.m. today. The first time Centex sales executives will have access to the one-day prices is when they report to work this morning, she said.

The Centex sales offices and model homes will close at 8 p.m. instead of the normal 6 p.m., she said.

"We want people to have ample time to shop, select and secure the deal that best suits them," Lura said. "We're hearing of some buyers who plan to make today 'Centex day.' They're packing up their families and visiting all of our neighborhoods with the mission of purchasing today so they can save thousands."

Home buyers can take advantage of the one-day sale at 15 Centex neighborhoods, including Mesa Verde, which opens today. The gated community of attached homes in North Las Vegas offers seven two-story floor plans, ranging from 1,493 to 2,392 square feet.
