Shea Homes successfully closed out 2012 with its highest home sale numbers since 2009. Opening seven new home communities last year, Shea averaged 8 home sales per week compared to the 5 home sales per week in 2010 and 2011.
“Sales are always a good indication of a recovering housing market and we are very optimistic and excited about the trends we are seeing in Arizona,” said Ken Peterson, VP of Sales and Marketing for Shea Homes Arizona. Visitors to communities remained consistent with previous years, which can be tied to more people being eligible to buy again and low resale inventory.
In 2012, Shea Homes adopted cutting edge technologies at its sales offices, including the use of iPads, Apple TV, Apps, online Space Planners, Microsoft’s Kinect motion sensing device allowing visitors to interact with Shea Homes community content along with the launch of a virtual kitchen and bath design tool, currently debuting at Shea’s Lantana at Power Ranch community.
“We are excited about what 2013 holds, we are opening numerous new communities this year including the launch of brand new product lines reflecting the newest innovations in exterior & interior home design,” said Peterson. “It’s going to be a good year for real estate in Phoenix.”
