Lennar to hold April sales event valleywide

Lennar will hold its BIG Spring Break sales event throughout this month. The home builder will offer reduced home prices across the valley and special financing packages through its preferred lender, Universal American Mortgage Co.

It also will offer its new Peace of Mind Mortgage Payment Protection Program, which helps homeowners pay their house notes in the event they lose their jobs. Qualified homeowners who are enrolled in the program can receive up to $1,800 per month for up to six months in mortgage payments.

Another focus for this sales event is to bring public attention to the government stimulus package that includes an $8,000 tax credit for qualified first-time homeowners, according to Jeff Galindo, vice president of sales for Lennar Las Vegas.

“With so many extraordinary financial assistance programs for homebuyers, it is the perfect time to buy a new home and take advantage of all the benefits being offered,” he said. “Lennar strives to offer only the very best value in homes each and every day but this incredible combination of offers is truly second to none. With the government tax credits, financing, and the lowest home prices we’ve seen in a decade, buyers have everything they need to get into the home of their dreams today.”
