Las Vegas, NV - A new community opened this week in East Las Vegas, with models available for viewing. Prices start in the $200s, aiming on making homeownership possible for first-time homebuyers. 

Located on the former Royal Links Gold Course, Independence is developed by Las Vegas-based homebuilder Touchstone Living. The community offers 14 floor plans with four townhome collections. Homeowners will have access to large parks, dog parks, multiple swimming pools, playgrounds, shaded picnic areas and walking trails all within the community.

Touchstone Living is also offering 5.99%, 30-year fixed rate financing for homebuyers through Independence’s preferred lender. 

The four townhome collections include Achieve, Success, Prosperity, and Triumph. Achieve homes have two bedrooms, two baths, approximately 1,134 square feet, and a private backyard priced in the $200,000s. Triumph homes are the largest at 1,774 square feet and offer three or four bedrooms, two and a half baths, a two-car garage, a private backyard, and start in the mid $300,000s.

Every home comes with solar panels and ENERGY STAR-certified Samsung appliances, including a washer, dryer, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave and stove cooktop/oven. Upgraded countertops, window coverings, Ring doorbell and closing costs are included in the price of the home. 

"Many people continue to rent even though they can afford the mortgage," says Tom McCormick, president of Touchstone Living. "Renters tell us the additional costs - above the mortgage - keep them renting, like closing costs and the significant price of purchasing all their own appliances. Independence homes include everything at no extra charge, making that transition from renter to owner possible. With the addition of solar panels to every home, we're also helping owners reduce their electricity costs.”

The Independence community will be managed by Touchstone Community Management, a division of Touchstone Living. The monthly HOA fee includes Cox Gigablast service providing high-speed internet and 220 channels including HBO and Showtime. Water, community patrols, street maintenance, common areas, solar panels and buildings are included in the monthly HOA fee.
