by Shea Homes on July 19, 2017

New Home Type

Choosing the Right Home Type is Personal – So Find What Works for You

What type of home you decide to buy ultimately depends on your household’s needs, lifestyle, and preferences (amongst other more tangible things like budget and location). Is a townhome the right fit for you right now, or would you prefer what a single-family home offers? Is your dream home in the middle of a master-planned community with various possible shared offerings like BBQs, parks and pools? Based on all of the options out there, the decision can be seem overwhelming! But, never fear, we’re here to try and help you approach the first step of the process – research – with slightly less uncertainty by pointing you in the direction of the home type you may like. To start, take this quiz to help you get a better idea of what type of home is best for you.

6 Affordable Home Gym Ideas

by Shea Homes on July 18, 2017

By Jesse Silkoff

A home gym may be great for your fitness routine, but it can be a real drain on your wallet. A dumbbell and plate weight set costs between $300 to $1000 alone, plus another $100 or so for a weight bench. Want to add cardio to your workout? Plan on factoring in another $300 to $5000 for a treadmill. However, your body is generally pretty ignorant of your financial situation—and it needs to be worked out regardless of what’s on your bank statement. Having a gym at home makes the whole process that much simpler: no drive to make, no bag to pack, no communal showers to negotiate. Plus, you never have to wait in line for a free treadmill or feel weird about working out in front of strangers!

At-Home Gym

But exercising at home doesn’t need to be a luxury reserved exclusively for those with a lot of expendable cash. With some workout smarts, you can have the whole thing set up in a matter of weeks—without emptying out your kid’s college fund first. Here are some of the best tips we’ve seen from practical-minded fitness addicts for a home workout station that’s affordable enough for almost any financial situation. [read more…]

One Big Secret to Energy Cost Savings

by Shea Homes Arizona on July 7, 2017

Energy Star CertifiedAs a family homebuilder, we strive to be a leader in innovation, customer care and overall, in enhancing lives so that families can wake up and start their days in a safe, comfortable living environment. Throughout the year in the desert, and especially in the summer months as temperatures begin to rise to new heights, comfort comes in the form of cool AC & energy efficient homes that don’t break the bank when the electric bill comes in.

That is why we partner with Energy Star®, a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. The program’s mission is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants. They also work to make it easy for consumers to identify and purchase energy-efficient products that offer savings on monthly energy bills—all of this without sacrificing the performance and desired features of the appliances or the comfort of the consumer.
