Moving to Phoenix - Why to Consider It Evolve at Cantilena, Peoria, AZ

 

Whether you already live in a nearby location or are lusting after the year-round sun Arizona offers, Phoenix is a city on the rise. According to the US Census, the population of Arizona has increased 9.8% since 2010, with the state’s population increasing 1.7% from 2016 to 2017. As the nation’s fifth-largest city, Phoenix is a growing, urban oasis contributing to the increase in population within The Grand Canyon State.

Insider tip from our Shea Homes® Arizona team: Now is the time for those in the market to buy a home in Phoenix to make a decision! It’s better to act while the home prices are still relatively affordable and interest rates are lower.

Adding a Swimming Pool to Your Home? Things You Should Know

by Shea Homes Arizona on May 18, 2018

Backyard Swimming PoolHave fun in the sun and stay cool by the pool! With that lovely extended spring behind us and the infamous Arizona summer on its way, Valley residents are pulling out their swimsuits and stocking up on sunscreen. Shea Homes® homeowners in communities like Recker Pointe and Ambition at Eastmark (and soon, 24 North) love the resort feel of their community pools, where neighbors can meet, play and barbecue together.

We chatted with Jim Pinson from Shasta Pools, Shea’s trusted resource for everything aquatic, to get the scoop on everything from construction to safety and maintenance. Shasta has been family-owned since 1966 and has been Arizona’s premier pool builder for decades.

While some homebuyers wait to build their pool until after closing, there are a few reasons to consider going for it right out of the gate.

buying a house after retirement

You’ve just about done it – you are almost there. After spending the last chapter of your life raising children and growing your career, retirement is just around the corner and it’s time to have time just for you! From traveling, to exploring new hobbies and building a community around new and existing friends, this chapter in your life is exciting and filled with lots of opportunities for changes. As you start to make your retirement plan, you may determine that your current home may not be ideal for your new lifestyle. To decide if you may want to consider moving around your retirement, ask yourself:

  • Do I have the right amount of space in my home?
  • Is there anything I wish I could get rid of, add, or change within the structure of my current home?
  • Is this the right state/city/neighborhood for me?
  • Without a job or children’s events to account for, does my community offer the activities and amenities I want?
