They provide you with buyer representation because sales tract agents ONLY represent the builder in the State of Nevada. Builder contracts are ALWAYS in the builder’s favor. New construction sales agents may be friendly and give you water, but they are not on your team.

Del Webb – The Beginning
D. W. is an exemplary builder of Active Senior Communities in the United States but didn’t start that way. Delbert E. Webb’s family was not wealthy as he grew up, and a familial illness had him quitting school to bring in a paycheck as a carpenter’s apprentice for a few years.
A career in semi-pro baseball was supplemented by doing carpentry jobs to make ends meet. While playing a baseball game with San Quinton Prison, Del contracted Typhoid Fever and, after barely surviving, was advised to move to a dry climate.
Del and his family had $100 in their pockets when they relocated to Phoenix, AZ, at age 29. He started off doing carpentry jobs wherever he could find them. Finally, the government awarded him a contract to build grocery stores in Arizona during the depression.
With his foot in the door building grocery stores, he applied for more government contracts. Soon Del Webb’s company was building over 3 million dollars of buildings a year – in the 1930s!
Towards the end of the depression, the NY Yankees owner needed to sell his franchise. Del and two others bought the NY Yankees for 2.89 million dollars.
In the late 1930’s they diversified into building schools and airfields. During WWII, they built the Japanese internment camp at Poston, AZ among other government facilities for the next 15 years.
Del Webb Corp. Started The Las Vegas Strip
The next expansion D. W. Corporation made was moving into the Las Vegas market. Soon D. W. Corporation teamed up with Bugsy Segal to build the Flamingo Hotel in 1946 and became part-owner of the Flamingo. The D.W. Corporation and went on to build many Flamingo Hotels.
After meeting Howard Hughes in Las Vegas, D. W. Corp. built several Hughes factories and office buildings. The 1950s were all about houses, hotels and hospitals, and a few smaller projects for the D. W. Corporation. Of course, the World Champions, The NY Yankees baseball team was his passion.
Sun City’s – 55+ Living
In January 1960, the first retirement community in Sun City, Arizona was built. It became the model for retirement communities across the United States. Going public on the NYSE in late 1960 led to the acquisition of the Sahara Hotel.
Next came The Mint in Las Vegas while ironing out how to build a successful retirement community. Del Webb Corp. built all types of high rises, Madison Square Gardens, and the LA Art Museum in the 1960s.
Diversifying, they tackled creating an infrastructure in some US cities and several South American countries. Del Webb died in July 1975, but Del Webb Corp. remained strong.
They continued to build more retirement housing, schools, hospitals, hotels, high-rises, convention centers, stadiums, and airports. Del Webb Corporation was a top company for many years.
In 1987 corporate decided to restructure and focus strictly on their extremely successful retirement communities. Restructuring led to selling off most divisions while still collecting monthly overrides from Sun City residents.
Still friendly with the Howard Hughes Corporation, when planning Summerlin, they asked Del Webb to become an anchor.
Today Sun City Summerlin has three 18-hole golf courses, four community centers, and about 1000 acres. Sun City Summerlin is one of Summerlin’s 25 villages within the master-planned community, the largest in the United States.

The best tip I can give you when buying any home, new construction, and resale homes for sale is to get an inspection. Just because a home for sale is new, doesn’t mean that it was built without mistakes.
Get a new construction inspection. New homes become resale homes and homeowners typically do not go in their attics or on the roof. Get resale homes inspected too.
