With its Holidays Are Here promotion, American West is offering new homebuyers some gifts this holiday season.
“We’re making the holidays a lot brighter for new homebuyers,” said American West President Larry Canarelli. “American West is giving numerous gifts away this holiday season. For a limited time, we are giving homeowners the gift of upgraded flooring, closing costs, fully landscaped backyard, complete appliance package, one-year home concierge package, granite countertops, dual master sinks, spa showers and radiant-heat, barrier roof sheathing. As a company, our goal has always been to help make the dream of a new home come true for the families of Las Vegas and this holiday season, we are making it much easier for everyone.”
Canarelli said his homeowners tell him they get “bang for their buck” with the purchase of a new American West home.
“Home shoppers are continuing to discover that they can get more for their money when buying a brand-new home from American West,” Canarelli said.
“Our newest communities represent a new generation of American West home designs. These homes represent American West’s latest innovative design features, which include unparalleled versatility and architecture; beautifully appointed, upgraded, standard features; luxurious baths and, of course, our signature gourmet kitchens with center dining island. These homes are truly enchanting and a must-see.”
American West is selling at 10 communities located throughout the Las Vegas Valley.
Home designs range from 1,216 to 4,770 square feet with prices starting at $178,500.
“Each American West community is a little different and appeals to different types of buyers. First-time home buyers, growing families, empty-nesters and those seeking luxury residences are all discovering homes that meet their personal needs at American West neighborhoods,” Canarelli said.
“Today’s home buyers are seeking homes constructed by quality builders with established track records, who stand behind their homes. We are a privately owned business that has been building in the Las Vegas Valley since 1984 with thousands of happy homeowners. American West is the only builder in the nation who has won the ACE Award for construction excellence twice. We look forward to providing quality homes to our homeowners and to exceeding their expectations,” he said.
The homes built by American West are certified as NV Energy Plus.
“We have chosen to be a part of the NV Energy Plus program because their specifications and guidelines were developed for the homes built in Southern Nevada. This program understands better than any other the unique temperatures we experience in Las Vegas. The NV Energy Plus criteria is focused on energy efficiency in a Southwest desert climate, reducing our carbon footprint and, of course ,energy savings,” Canarelli said.
All of American West’s energy-efficient features includes in its homes. These features include: Carrier and Lennox 14-SEER natural gas heat and electric central air-conditioning with Puron, the environmentally sound refrigerant; R13 insulation in exterior walls and R30 in ceilings; Prime Wrap house wrap; fully insulated, fiberglass, front-entry door; vinyl-framed, dual-paned, low-e windows and sliding glass; quick-recovery, natural-gas water heater; and water-conserving Moen faucets and showerheads.
The company built and pioneered such master plans as The Whitney Ranch, The Lakes, South Shores in Summerlin and Green Valley South. This tradition is being continued with Highlands Ranch and Coronado Ranch in the southwestern valley and Silverado Ranch in the south.
“By using foresight, we only build in the best areas,” Canarelli said. “For example, we’re adjacent to the master-planned areas yet we’re able to give the buyer much more house for the money. Factoring in all the new schools, parks, shopping and dining, buyers get every bit the livability of master-planned communities without the high monthly fees,” he said.
Canarelli said his homebuyers won’t pay special district fees.
“We think it’s proper for a developer to pay the infrastructure fees up front, rather than passing them onto the homeowner through expensive monthly LID fees.”
Highlands Ranch, located in the southwest, features four neighborhoods — Lexington, Fairmont, Newcastle and Kensington. These neighborhoods feature two-story and split-level home designs ranging from 1,216 to 4,770 square feet with as many as six bedrooms.
Another planned community in the southwest part of the valley is Coronado Ranch.
American West is currently selling at Brookside, Reserve and Woodbridge. The two-story and split-level home designs range from 1,608 to 4,770 square feet with as many as six bedrooms.
The planned community of Silverado Ranch in the south, adjacent to Green Valley, was pioneered by the builder and currently features Silverado Springs with two-story and split-level home designs ranging from 2,363 to 3,790 square feet with as many as five bedrooms. Due to demand for this area, the builder will be starting a new community, Silverado Summit, after the first of the year.
“As a builder, we are thrilled to be able to contribute to the growth of Las Vegas,” Canarelli said. “Over the past four months, we grand opened two communities — Brookside and Carmel Hills. Featuring open floor plans, gourmet kitchens and incredible flexibility, the homes combine the best of American West’s signature architectural touches. Home shoppers are surprised by our smart use of space and amazing flexibility. These homes represent the future of American West and we look forward to building on this new generation of homes as we move toward 2012.”
