Lennar Homes has a goal of selling 30 homes this month

The goal for Lennar Homes in Las Vegas is to sell 30 homes in the next 30 days by slashing prices up to 25 percent off the base price of selected remaining inventory homes and offering special financing fixed for the first year and special financing fixed for life, according to Jeff Galindo, vice president of sales for Lennar Las Vegas.

Buyers who would want to move into a new home before year-end should consider this opportunity before their buying power is affected by lower loan limits and increasing Federal Housing Administration down payment requirements that start in 2009.

“We are very optimistic about a strong 2009 year, but the deals we are offering to close 2008 are unprecedented,” Galindo said.

“The opportunities available right now are opportunities we may never see again, especially with changes coming up in lending limits starting next year, so we are doing everything we can to sell 30 homes in 30 days.”

Beginning Jan. 1, 2009, the minimum down payment for an FHA loan will increase, Galindo said. Additionally, the conventional jumbo loan limit on a new home purchase is scheduled to drop. Before this happens, buyers have an opportunity to get deals on Lennar’s inventory homes in Las Vegas, including models.

Special financing will be offered and those who purchase one of the inventory sale homes this weekend can opt for up to 25 percent off the list price in lieu of the special financing.

“Now you can own a $209,990 home for as little as $1,028 per month,” Galindo said. “These homes are not only extremely attainable but they are ready to move into immediately.”

Among Lennar’s remaining inventory in Las Vegas, decorated model homes is another option. These homes feature landscaping and professionally designed interiors that are upgraded to include flooring, wall treatments and media niches, wine racks and many other extras per model.

“The benefits of buying a model home are related to the quality of work put into them,” Galindo said. “We’ve worked with the area’s top designers who are experts at maximizing the benefits of the living space. They stay on top of the latest trends and are able to showcase the style, flow, and livability of the homes.

Community hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday and noon to 5 p.m., Monday.
