Pardee Homes Las Vegas Becomes TRI Pointe Homes

NOTE: In February 2021, TRI Pointe Homes became the new name of  Pardee Homes Las Vegas. Pardee Homes officially merged with TRI Pointe Group in 2014 but didn’t officially change their name to TRI Pointe until February. The name change encompassed Pardee Homes Las Vegas and all of Pardee’s Southern California divisions.

See links below for All Pardee – TRI Point Homes Communities. Their divisions across the entire country are now named TRI Pointe Homes; AKA TRI Pointe Group, Inc. TRI Pointe Homes said they did the name change exclusively to benefit their national brand recognition.

How Pardee Homes Started

TRI Pointe Homes Pardee Las VegasPardee Homes was officially founded in 1921 in So. California by George Pardee and his 3 sons. After expanding throughout the Southern California area, Nevada was a logical “next expansion” move.

After WWII, Pardee Homes became a $1 down VA loan specialist builder, and in 1952 started building in Las Vegas. Pardee Homes Las Vegas was an instant success, selling out every home during their Opening Weekend Event.

Building a reputation for building good-quality homes in Las Vegas, Pardee Homes continued to steadily grow. Pardee Homes Las Vegas later expanded to develop large communities in Henderson and North Las Vegas.

In 1969, Weyerhaeuser Corporation, a lumber corporation, purchased 5 different building companies in the US, including Pardee Homes. The corporation became known as WRECO – Weyerhaeuser Real Estate Company. Then in 2014, WRECO merged with TRI Pointe Homes, Inc.

Pardee Homes Las Vegas – Now TRI Pointe Homes Las Vegas

Pardee Homes Las Vegas has built thousands of houses in hundreds of neighborhoods. When I moved to Las Vegas 30+ years ago, Pardee was pioneering North Las Vegas by building El Dorado. They were also building houses by McCarran Airport and were well known for developing Spring Valley.

At the top of MLK Blvd., El Dorado was the first master-planned community in North Las Vegas. Today El Dorado stands out because it was built before Las Vegas started water conservation efforts so everything is green.

Tri Point Homes Las Vegas PardeeI thought it was amazing that they sold these amazing houses and put one light bulb in each light fixture. When I asked why, they said it was only to show the new owner that the light fixture worked.

Since then, they have changed that practice. It’s an example of how they cut corners to build inexpensive, affordable houses in the early 1990s.

Nationally, Pardee Homes progressed into visionary energy efficient builders. As trend-setters, Pardee started building energy saving homes in 1998.

With that success, they expanded their Living Smart Green Home Building Program in 2001. Pardee’s use of energy efficient materials earned them numerous prestigious awards and national recognition for over 20 years.

TRI Pointe Homes Builds For Millennials

In 2016, TRI Pointe Homes teamed up with Hanley Wood’s BUILDER magazine to build responsive homes in Las Vegas before The International Building Show. As a result, Pardee Homes Las Vegas, now TRI Pointe Homes Las Vegas, built two houses in the master-planned community of Inspirada in Henderson.

These homes in Inspirada were their vision of what Millennials want in their houses. 

After the building show, Inspirada Model Homes continued doing great research at the community for the company. The following year their floor plans changed, and they are still using those floor plans today.

What TRI-Pointe found out while building homes in Inspirada was that Millennials mainly wanted open space in their houses within a lower-density community. The most important factor for these homebuyers was 86% wanted quality construction and 76% want low maintenance yards. 

Additionally, 80% want to walk to the park and 75% want to walk to the grocery store. Surprisingly, these features were more important than technology (only 48% found that important) as was previously assumed to be #1. TRI Pointe also discovered that 35% of home buyers planned to have a roommate.

Builder Options – Customize Your TRI Pointe Home

TRI Pointe listens. Today, their models offer adaptable, changeable floor plans, with the option of indoor-outdoor living space.pardee homes TRI Pointe Their houses for sale in Las Vegas feature contemporary and traditional looks.

Because TRI Pointe utilizes technology-enabled automation and energy-efficient green technology, you have a multitude of choices.

Some houses they build have been designed by their people already and have been “specced” with structural options added. They do a good job. However, if you order a house, your floor plan can include exactly what you want in your home.


It’s great to have the choice of adding a bedroom or making a bedroom into an office. You can also choose to have a den, a workout area, or a dining room. Sliding door walls have become increasingly popular. My favorite feature is always the detached casita, office, or studio that they offer. Versatility is their goal, and it shows.


As a former Nevada Building Engineer with Pardee Homes as a client, I have watched the quality of the houses that TRI Pointe has produced for the last 5 years. I am happy to report that I feel like their quality of home delivered to our clients has been good.

All builders have errors in their construction, and that is why you should always have a New Construction Home Inspection.
