Virtual Tours Let You See Our Phoenix Models in 360° Online

by Shea Homes Arizona on June 22, 2018

 

It’s hot. That special Arizona cook-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk-don’t-touch-the-seatbelt hot. We get it. When it’s 115 out, it feels wrong to be anywhere that’s not your air-conditioned living room or beside the pool. That’s why Shea Homes® has put together a way for you to tour our model homes without leaving your house: 360 degree Virtual Tours.

Now available for Aperture, Emblem, and Origin at Gateway Quarter, you can take a stroll around all our stunning communities without leaving your desk or couch – every one of our 17 Shea Homes Arizona communities has at least one model available to tour online. Instead of studying floorplans and using your imagination, click and pan your way through these homes to get a real sense of space.
360 Degree View of Model HomesVirtual Tours are easy to find and intuitive to use. First, head over to our communities page and select the community you’re interested in. As you peruse the list of different homes, keep an eye out for this icon:IconThat means there is a Virtual Tour available for that floorplan. Click it, and the tour will open up in a new window (be sure you have Flash player installed and up to date). Now it’s as easy as clicking the floor to “walk” to a new spot, clicking and dragging to get a 360 degree look around, or you can even view a “dollhouse” image by clicking on the little white box near the arrows.

Prepare Your Home for Monsoon Season

by Shea Homes Arizona on June 15, 2018

Monsoon 2018

Rain. Wind. Hail. Haboobs. Ready or not, Arizona monsoon season has officially arrived, and will be here until September 30. While the temperature dips may be nice, all that inclement weather can bring some nasty surprises with it. So if you live in the Phoenix area, now is the time to prepare. Here are Shea Homes® top tips to get your home ready for the monsoons 

Prepare plants and trees

Protect your plants (and your home!) by preparing in advance. Trim any big tree branches that could snap off and damage your roof. Stake down young trees that might not make it through an intense storm. And remember, the heavy monsoon rains that often come before the strong winds can loosen the soil and make trees more prone to becoming uprooted.

Evaluate your Home’s Drainage

If you’ve noticed drainage issues in your yard that cause pooling of water during a rain storm, make sure you have it taken care of before the monsoons hit. You may need to hire a landscaping company to provide a drainage solution that will keep your yard and home protected from possible flooding.

Install or Clean Out Rain Gutters and Downspouts

Rain gutters and downspouts are the best way to direct the rain that comes from monsoon microbursts or macrobursts away from your home. Don’t wait until it’s too late to make sure yours are ready to do their job and divert the rain away from your home’s foundation.

Clean out the Garage

If you’re the type to procrastinate your spring cleaning well beyond spring, now is the perfect time to put the family to work and clean out that over-stuffed garage. Parking your car on the street or in the driveway could put it at risk during the monsoon storms since flying branches and falling trees are common occurrences when the wild weather comes to town. Make room in the garage for your car and keep it safe from flying objects, as well as hail, rain and wind.

For more information on the June 15 through September 30 monsoon season in the Southwest, visit http://www.monsoonsafety.org/.

What to Expect: Buying vs. Building a New Home

June 6, 2018
