Take a virtual step into your new Shea Home…

by Shea Homes Arizona on March 14, 2014

Are you on the hunt for a new home but don’t have time to physically see all the communities we offer? Get the gist of what each Shea Homes community offers through Shea Homes Arizona’s website, where the family-feel of the living spaces and fresh air of the open backyards radiate through your computer screen.

Shea Homes offers several descriptions and photos of each community and floor plan, but nothing is as realistic as the panoramic virtual tours you can take, as shown in our YouTube video. Simply type www.SheaHomes.com into your 1.1browser, select “Find Your Home” in the navigation bar at the top, select “Arizona”, then “Phoenix Metro Area”, and begin browsing through the communities you would like to see based on location, size, price range, etc.

 Once you are on the page of the community you wish to look at, scroll down and view the home plans. The home plans with a light blue, circular icon have the virtual tour feature. 1.2

Click this icon and once the tour has loaded, click “Start Tour”. By default, when you start the tour, the photos of the model will appear. The toolbar beneath the photos gives you different view options, such as 1) Panoramas, 2) Gallery, 3) Theater and 4) Full Screen.

1.3The Panorama View gives you an interactive look into several rooms in the model home. You can even view the pans in 2D or 3D! The Panorama View also allows users to look up, down or side to side in the room. This way, see several different angles as if you are standing in the room!

The Gallery View just collects the photos that you see in the Photo View, and lays them out in a grid format so they are simpler to navigate. The Theater View takes you through a presentation of the model. You have the option to pause the presentation or fast forward through each slide. Click Full Screen Mode and the presentation will enter full screen on your computer, and just sit 1.4back and watch!

The “Tools” button gives you several options pertaining to the model you are looking at. These options include 1) Mortgage Calculator, 2) Analysis, 3) Print Brochure, 4) Email It, 4) Download Tour, 5) Share This Tour, 6) Nearby Schools and 7) Local Weather. 1.5

If you go back to the Home screen by clicking the “Home” icon, you will see a “View Details” button that is just under the “Start Tour” button you clicked at the beginning of your virtual tour. By clicking this button, you will see all the property details including the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, square footage and more.
