Rhodes Homes offers incentives

A federal government stimulus offering up to $8,000 to first-time homebuyers, along with Rhodes Homes current incentives, is reducing the price of new homes at Rhodes Ranch in southwestern Las Vegas. The Greens Collection in the master plan is offering three floor plans starting at $184,990.

"There is incredible value to be found at Rhodes Ranch," said sales agent DeAnna Forsyth. "Rhodes Homes is currently offering 3 percent of every home's sale price to be used towards closing costs, which can be up to $6,000 at The Greens Collection alone. Combined with the $8,000 federal incentive for new homebuyers, these homes are the absolute best values for master planned living in Las Vegas."

The Greens offers three floor plans starting at $184,990. Plan 1534, named for its size, includes three bedrooms, 21/2 baths, living room, dining room, kitchen island and upstairs laundry room.

Plan 1734 offers three bedrooms, 21/2 baths, living room, dining room, first-floor laundry room, formal entry and a loft on the second floor.

The Greens' largest floor plan is Plan 1841, which includes three bedrooms, 21/2 baths, kitchen island, second-floor loft, upstairs laundry room and master retreat. All three plans include a two-car garage and options for covered porches and patios, per plan.

"New home values are now nearly matched to resales and foreclosures in terms of pricing," Forsyth said. "We hear from nearly all of our buyers that buying a new home is much easier and less time consuming than bidding on multiple properties only to be rejected and have to start the process over. At Rhodes Homes, offers are accepted within 24 hours and we start building a brand-new home just for you.

"Every home at The Greens includes a standard microwave oven, beech wood cabinetry and cultured marble countertops in the bathrooms," Forsyth said.

Standard features in homes at The Greens include finished garages, a barbecue stub in the rear yards and raised panel entry doors. Inside, the homes include kitchen pantries, crown molding in the kitchens, custom rounded corners and prewiring for cable, phone, ceiling fans and alarms.

All homes at The Greens meet or exceed Energy Star standards with features such as blown-in cellulose insulation, low-e vinyl windows, programmable thermostats and 13 SEER air conditioners.

Rhodes Homes is developing 16 neighborhoods in the valley.
