Tips on buying a new home during the holidays

by Shea Homes Arizona on December 19, 2014


Thinking of buying a new home during the holidays? You may be surprised to learn that now could be a good time to buy. While everyone else is running around shopping, wrapping and baking, you could be enjoying a great deal and celebrating the New Year in your dream home.

Don’t settle

Just because you’re in a hurry to get into a new home doesn’t mean you have to settle. Yes, some move-in ready homes (also called inventory homes) may not have all the bells and whistles. But that is not the case with all homebuilders. Shea Homes®  outfits their inventory homes with great designs and finishes.

“Our sales team excels at matching homebuyers with the perfect home, no matter what time of year it is,” said Ken Peterson, vice president of sales for Shea Homes Arizona.

Buy during the off-season

Most people buy new homes in the spring and summer, so demand tends to be lower during the winter months. Fewer shoppers means you’ll be a big fish in a small pond, and the financing process may move more quickly than usual since fewer mortgages are being approved. If you’re looking for a quick move-in opportunity, now is the time to take advantage of special offers on inventory homes.

Give yourself peace of mind

Short sales or foreclosures may be tempting, but remember — the only way you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing how your home has been treated, and that the warranties are intact, is by buying a new home. Start the New Year with a new home that is perfect for your family.

“There is nothing like new– whether it is a car, home or suit,” said Peterson. “All Shea Homes come with great technology in energy efficiency including the Environments for Living (EFL) designation, which guarantees the home’s energy usage for two years. With all that is currently available, this is a great time to buy!”
