What to Expect: Buying vs. Building a New Home

by Shea Homes on June 6, 2018

What to Expect Building vs. Buying a Home

It’s decided. Your dream home from a few years ago is just no longer your dream home today. The single sink in the master bathroom isn’t cutting it. The kids are getting bigger and sharing a room really is not feasible anymore. And, no matter how many late-night Pinterest sessions you’ve embarked upon, that awkwardly shaped room still isn’t styled the way you’d like.

So, you’ve downloaded the real estate apps and stop to grab a flyer when passing by any “for sale” sign outside a house on your drives around town. But, have you considered building your new dream home? Often, those in the market to buy a home don’t consider building a home personalized for them. However, building a new home, instead of buying an older home, could be a great option, allowing you to get the home features that will serve your family’s wants and needs.

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.

Many of our communities also offer the option of adding a swimming pool in the back yard. 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.
