September 23, 2021 –– With school back in full swing and the holiday’s just around the corner, now is the perfect time to build a new home and save up to $10,000 when spending $20,000 on options and upgrades at Shodeen Homes’ communities in Illinois and Wisconsin.
“With busy summer schedules and vacationing behind and holiday gatherings and visiting friends and family ahead, homeowners tend to reassess their lifestyle needs,” said Anna Harmon, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for Shodeen Homes. “In addition, the pandemic led to homeowners working, learning and spending more time at home leading to lifestyle adjustments and a new list of home priorities.”
Shodeen Homes is offering buyers up to $10,000 in savings when they spend $20,000 towards popular options, such as gourmet island kitchens with upgraded cabinets and countertops, wood flooring, luxury master baths and more or buyers may choose to save on structural options such as finished basements, extended family rooms or screened porches.
“Kitchens are typically where buyers spend the majority of their design dollars,” Harmon said. “However, with more people working from home, we’ve seen buyers invest more in finished basements in order to create the perfect home office.”
For a limited time, buyers can save up to $10,000 when spending $20,000 in options and upgrades on a new ranch or two-story home at the following Shodeen communities:
