Best of Houzz 2016
We’re huge Houzz fans here at Shea Homes Arizona. So we were pretty excited to hear that we won a “Best of Design” on Houzz®, the leading platform for home remodeling and design.

Calling all Houzz and HGTV junkies. Two stylish, new model homes are debuting later this month at Stepping Stone. And here’s a sneak preview of what you’ll see.

Shea’s new Watercolor Collection in Stepping Stone’s Butterfly Neighborhood includes four ranch plans with exteriors that artfully blend classic architectural design with contemporary accents. As to the way they feel, modern is the best descriptor. Each plan syncs up perfectly with today’s busy lifestyles, maximizing living space with smart, open plans where families can flow from great room to kitchen with island to covered patio. Bedrooms flex from 2 to 4. Optional finished basements can include children’s and guest bedrooms, or simply extra space for hobbies or entertainment.

To better prepare our customers for their design studio appointments, we have recently joined the popular, online platform called Houzz! So what is Houzz, you ask? Houzz is the leading platform for home remodeling and design, providing people with everything they need to improve their homes from start of finish. Essentially, we’d call it the realistic Pinterest for new homeowners. You CAN get the features you see in our photos! Here’s how:

On Houzz, users are able to create their own ideabook, which is a place for users to store and categorize their favorite photos by style, trend, color and room! You can flip through photos of all our communities and models, in addition to photos of other Houzz users’ (aka HOUZZERS) Shea Homes; read questions submitted by other HOUZZERS and responses answered by Shea Homes professionals; read thorough reviews and even write your own review about us! Plus much, much more!

Do we have your attention? If so, sign up for a Houzz account now! Here is a chart of the quick and easy steps!

We are also so excited to announce a new feature that we will be launching on our Houzz profile in the very near future! Here is a simple outline of what you can expect:

The Idea:

Utilize our SheaHomesAZ HOUZZ account to aid buyers in selecting their personal interior design style based on 5 style categories predetermined internally.

The Program:

The main idea was to keep new buyers excited about their new home. So HOUZZ will be used as a tool for homeowners to look through options we offer based on what other homeowners selected. We have made it easy for them to discover their personal style because we categorize the homeowner photos for them.

Additionally, homeowners can see the name of the option as well. While review the photos if they see an option they love, they can write it down and bring that with them during their Design Studio Appt.

How will it work?:

We will upload images of completed homes, prior to key release, showcasing the home’s style. We would like to showcase cabinets, countertops, flooring, and grout. Therefore, the best images will be of the main hub of the home (i.e. kitchen/great room). The images will be placed in their corresponding design style, based on that buyers design studio selections.

Prospective/New Buyers:

Prospective/New buyer(s) will have the option to view the Ideabooks on HOUZZ to better determine their own personal style based on options that we offer. This can aid in keeping the buyer(s) excited and help set expectations for the Design Studio appointment.

Styles:

The ideabooks that we will offer are based on popular house styles, such as Contemporary, Eclectic, Modern, Traditional and Transitional. We will provide links to these ideabooks in the near future so that you can look through photos and get an idea of what designs you like best for your Shea Home!
