Feeling intimidated at the thought of customizing your new home? Here’s a hot trend right now that has everyone swooning: beautiful wood floors! With an amazing variety of stains, finishes, plank width, or texture…wood floors can instantly give you the elegant look you’ve always wanted.

If you’re leaning towards a more sophisticated style for your kitchen and living room, a Coffee Bean stain will do the trick and transform your living spaces from shabby to chic. Or, if you live a coastal lifestyle and love a beach-inspired look, Whitewash is another popular stain of choice that is taking off this year.

These are just a few wood floor options that are favored by homeowners in 2016…there are lots more to choose from! That’s why our amazing Shea Homes® Design Studio Team is here to be your personal guide. See what the experts have to say about wood floors, and why YOU should get on board with this exciting design trend.

Making a Difference: Summer Food Drive Recap

by Shea Homes on August 15, 2016

Shea Homes Food Drive 2016This season, from June–July, we hosted a Summer Food Drive to support our local food banks. Over 70 Shea Homes® communities participated, hoping to aid a rising need during a time when supplies are typically low—and you responded generously. Because of your kindness, Shea Homes was able to make a matching donation for the 13,342 pounds of food items that were collected! We just wanted to extend a big THANK YOU for helping us truly Live the Difference® by making a difference in the communities that we’re all a part of.

For a snapshot of the event, check out these great photos below! Thanks again for making the 2016 Summer Food Drive such a huge success!

Heroes Rewards

As summer vacation comes to a close, teachers are gearing up for another year of hard work. We want to thank Arizona teachers for their service by reminding them about the Heroes Reward program, which provides them with a 1% base price credit toward the purchase of a new Shea Home. This special offer is also available to active and retired military, active or retired police officers, and active or retired firefighters.

The Heroes Reward Program is just one small way we at Shea Homes® Arizona are able to recognize and thank our military, teachers, police officers and firefighters for all that they do to make our communities a better place to live and work.

The redemption process for the Shea Homes Heroes Reward Program is simple:

  1. Eligible active or retired military, teachers, police officers and firefighters print out a certificate, available here: http://bit.ly/HeroReward
  2. Participants fill out the form, and present it to their Shea Homes Community Representative, along with proof of current or previous employment.
  3. The 1% credit is applied toward the base price of a new Shea home (program not valid at Trilogy or Encanterra communities). 

If you or someone you know qualifies for the Heroes Reward Program, we invite you to come tour one of our Shea Homes communities around the Valley and see for yourself what it means to “live the difference.”
