Shea Homes reported a strong second quarter for new home sales. From April to June, Shea Homes recorded 137 new home sales, compared with 87 new homes sold during the same time period last year, a 57 percent year-over-year increase.

“We’re seeing strong growth across the Valley,” said Ken Peterson, VP of Sales and Marketing for Shea Homes. “From our beautiful and conveniently located homes in the Intrigue at Greer Ranch community in Surprise, to our family-friendly homes in Retreat at The Bridges in Gilbert, an exceptional master plan community which includes meandering streams and trails, BBQ and picnic areas, basketball/bocce ball courts, splash pads, play structures and community parks.”

The top five Shea Homes communities by sales volume in Q2 2015 are Intrigue at Greer Ranch (Surprise) Retreat at The Bridges (Gilbert), Hideaway at Johnson Ranch (San Tan Valley), Desert Intrigue (Peoria), and Inspire at Estrella (Goodyear).

“It’s safe to say the Phoenix housing market is heating up again,” said Peterson.
