2017 New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home

by Shea Homes Arizona on January 13, 2017

New Year's Resolutions for Your HomeNow that the chaos of the holidays is over, many of us are hungry for change and a fresh start. A new year is the perfect place to implement new habits & routines to live the life you have always wanted and to reach the goals that you have set. These new habits usually include healthy eating and more exercise, but we would argue that home improvement and care is just as important (your home is where you do most of your living after all!). As you take a look at the coming year with a fresh set of eyes, here are a few New Year’s resolutions for your home: 

Remove Excess

Put your house on a diet by getting rid of the junk! Schedule a day to take a good, hard look at all of the things you own, recall the last time you used them, the likelihood that you will use them within the next six months and the value that they bring to your life and your home. If you find items that haven’t been used in ages, that you aren’t likely to use in the near future and that don’t serve a specific purpose in your life or home, put them in a pile and let them go. This practice is simple, yet life-changing when you experience the mental space that is cleared up by simply decluttering.

It has been a busy year for us here at Shea Homes® Arizona. We opened four new communities: the modern gated community of 24 North in North Phoenix, the beautiful Carino Villas condominiums in Chandler, the luxurious Vantage condos in Ahwatukee, and the Shea 3D community Ambition at Eastmark in Mesa.

And while it’s always exciting to open new communities, the most rewarding part of this business in helping families select, build, and ultimately move into their dream homes.

So after all this activity in 2016, will we be slowing the pace in 2017? Not a chance! In the coming year, we will be opening more Shea Homes communities to meet continued demand, and welcoming even more happy homeowners to the Shea family. Here’s a peek at some of our upcoming activity.

The Reserves – Gilbert
The Reserves at Val Vista
In spring 2017, we will open the doors to our luxury gated Gilbert development, The Reserves. Here, we plan to offer 383 four single-story, distinctive floor plans, measuring approximately 3,282 – 3,982 square feet.
