Building your home from the ground up is an experience like no other, but some buyers need something more immediate. Maybe you’ve just moved to a new job in Phoenix and are looking for your family’s new home, or maybe you already live here and want all the benefits of a brand-new home without the wait involved with a new build. Depending on your situation, you may want to consider the advantages of purchasing a Shea Homes® Quick Move-In home.

A Quick Move-In is a home that is already completed or near completion and is therefore available for a quicker sale and move-in date than a typical new home construction.  Shea also has several move-in ready homes that are already finished, available for you to move in as soon as possible.

What’s not to love? Here’s a look at five of our favorite Quick Move-In homes that are ready for you now:
