Remembering Heroes

by Shea Homes Arizona on May 26, 2017

Memorial Day
During this long weekend, we take time to remember and honor those who have stood on the front lines to protect their country and to provide freedom to all of those who call it home. On Memorial Day, we pause to thank the heroes that have sacrificed their lives for us. We also remember the families who have mourned the loss of loved ones, and continue to stand alongside of them in their times of need.

At Shea Homes®, we like to thank the heroes for their service and help their families by offering our Heroes Reward program. This provides them with a 1% base price incentive toward the purchase of a new Shea Home in Arizona. This special offer is also available to teachers, active or retired police officers, and active or retired firefighters. It is a way to celebrate the heroes in our communities and recognize how they have made a difference in our lives and the way we are able to live today.

Those we recognize on Memorial Day should not be taken for granted or forgotten. We remember these men and women and honor their service and sacrifice. We are thankful for how they have made such a difference in our lives and we are encouraged every day to do our part to “live the difference.” [read more…]

2017 New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home

by Shea Homes Arizona on January 13, 2017

New Year's Resolutions for Your HomeNow that the chaos of the holidays is over, many of us are hungry for change and a fresh start. A new year is the perfect place to implement new habits & routines to live the life you have always wanted and to reach the goals that you have set. These new habits usually include healthy eating and more exercise, but we would argue that home improvement and care is just as important (your home is where you do most of your living after all!). As you take a look at the coming year with a fresh set of eyes, here are a few New Year’s resolutions for your home: 

Remove Excess

Put your house on a diet by getting rid of the junk! Schedule a day to take a good, hard look at all of the things you own, recall the last time you used them, the likelihood that you will use them within the next six months and the value that they bring to your life and your home. If you find items that haven’t been used in ages, that you aren’t likely to use in the near future and that don’t serve a specific purpose in your life or home, put them in a pile and let them go. This practice is simple, yet life-changing when you experience the mental space that is cleared up by simply decluttering.
