With the average age of our properties here in Ahwatukee at around 20 years there seems to be a shift in what is most important to buyers out here looking to purchase. Ten years ago interior upgrades like granite counter tops, newer fixtures and flooring were on top of most buyers list when searching for a home. Top of the radar these days are big-tickets items that have reached their life span like roofs and air condition units. Another non-cosmetic item high on the list is energy efficiency such as newer windows and solar equipment.
Taylor Morrison Arizona has announced that all of its new home communities will now carry energy ratings based on the energy-conscious HERSIndex, giving Arizonans an opportunity to discover the most energy-efficient home available for their family. Taylor Morrison Arizona has 22 communities throughout the Valley, stretching from Peoria to Gilbert. As part of the program, all Taylor Morrison Arizona homes will be built to Energy Star 3.0 specifications with 100 percent Energy Star rated appliances. Radiant barrier roof sheathing, high efficiency 14-SEER air conditioning, low-E vinyl framed windows and programmable thermostats are also included. The eco-driven features are part of the homebuilder’s new Elem3nts program, which stresses environment, energy and efficiency. For more information, visit elements.taylormorrison.com.
