American West Homes
Did you know?
A Las Vegas Builder pays for you to have buyer representation if you go to any of their housing tracts with your Realtor on the first visit. In addition, we have the ability to register you electronically with a builder. All you have to do is let us know you are interested, and we do the rest. For more information, read “About Us” or “7 Reasons To Use A New Construction Realtor” before you look at model homes or give a builder your name. With how quickly homes get built in the Vegas Valley, you need to be protected- and we give our knowledge and skills for you.
American West The Builder
American West first started building in Las Vegas in the 1980s. Their neighborhoods are large and have houses for a great price per square foot. Interestingly, even though their basic home isn’t highly upgraded, they have lots of architectural features and offer many higher-end upgrades.
Pulte Homes purchased American West Homes in 2019 and continues to sell well. If you want a large home for a good price, American West might be a good option for you. As a result of the homes’ large size, many families purchase there. In addition, due to their size, many homes are upgraded, have pools, and pride of ownership within the communities.
Las Vegas American West
As a result of having been a builder for over 35 years, American West is a Las Vegas fixture. Since building their first community in Las Vegas in 1984, they built over 100 communities and homes for over 18,000 families. Currently American West builds all of its communities in Southwest Las Vegas along the 215 Beltway.
The Southwest is booming with near-by shopping, schools, and restaurants thriving and established. Additionally, a large industrial warehouse area is close-by for businesses and employment. It’s still exciting to see more businesses and retail open continually in that area. The location is minutes by freeway to McCarran Airport and The Las Vegas Strip.
In the resale market, many of their homes built before the 2000s have air conditioning systems on the roof to increase air-flow. Makes sense, except that these leveled-off alcoves are LOVED by pigeons for nesting. Since pigeons return to where they were born to nest, this is a problem. If previous sellers and neighbors haven’t handled this it will be evident and you should be aware that this can be a BIG problem.
In Las Vegas, the recession 10 years ago greatly affected housing. In 2009 American West’s sales were over $61 million dollars but sales plunged to $12 million in 2011. They filed bankruptcy in 2012, pulled through, and then sold to Pulte Homes in 2019.
Pulte Homes purchased a company with a good history and reputation. Their large two-story homes and sprawling one-story floor plans combined with locations along the southern beltway make American West Communities very popular.
