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.

My family and I, live in a Shea Home, built in 1967. My family and I have been ‘home owners’ since 1989; for 29years, now. I absolutely love the ‘floor plan’. However, the Floor Plan is in need of a Remodeling Upgrade (Interior and Exterior). Is this needed Upgrade something that the Shea Homes Builders/Contactors can help Us with?

Hi Bernice,

Thank you for sharing your comments, so great to hear that you are a long-time Shea homeowner! Unfortunately, Shea Homes does not handle remodeling projects, nor do we refer any contractors. We would recommend you select licensed, bonded contractors for bids on your remodeling project. You may want to ask friends or neighbors for recommendations, or do an internet search for highly rated contractors in your area. Good luck!

Does Shea have plans to build a 55+ in central bucks county in Pennsylvania soon?


Sheri Troy October 23, 2017 at 10:26 am

Hello Nelson,

Thanks for your interest in our homes! We do not currently have any plans for the PA area or Northeast at this time. The communities that would be the closest on the East Coast at this time would be in VA and NC. Shea Homes is always looking at land opportunities around the country, so something in that area may be in the future. Thank you!

I would love to live in one of your communities but I want a one story home that I can age in and I want a home with an interior courtyard so that my small dogs can be outside but not in a backyard accessible to others or to coyotes. When will you design something like this??


Sheri Troy October 23, 2017 at 10:28 am

Hi Joan,

Thank you for sharing your comments with us. We do have plans at various communities that have courtyard areas. Give us a call and let us know which area/s you are looking at, and we can provide additional recommendations for you. We’re here 7 days a week at: 866.696.7432. Thank you!
