March 31, 2022 –– Shodeen Homes has extended its Spring Savings Event, which offers half-off options up to $20,000 on to-be-built ranch, two-story or low-maintenance Village homes, through April 30th at communities in Illinois and Wisconsin.
“The winter housing market has been strong,” said Craig Shodeen, President of Shodeen Homes. “New home sales have continued to surge as buyers gravitate to open-concept floor plans with today’s most sought-after design trends and money-saving energy-efficient features.”
A recent National Association of Realtors report estimated 762,000 new homes were sold in the U.S. in 2021, a record-pace not seen since the 1990s. Most sellers of an existing home, according to the same report, received full asking price with 35% getting more than what they asked. Buyers who purchased new construction, according to a recent Zillow survey, did so primarily to customize homes with new features with 37% choosing to be the first owner of a home because everything was new and never used.
“The advantages of new construction go beyond today’s most current trends,” Shodeen said. “Our homes feature industry-leading, energy-efficient features that, on average, are 40% more efficient than homes built just 10 years ago. New homes are built with the most current building codes providing the most up-to-date safety mandates and each Shodeen home comes with a 1-5- and-10-year warranty giving buyers peace-of-mind when making their new home investment.”
