Beazer Homes and ActiveRain Challenge: What’s in Your New Dream Home?

Services for Real Estate Pros with ActiveRain

There is nothing quite like buying a brand new home. I’m talking fresh out of the box, like the type of homes Beazer Homes sells.

When you have a reputable builder, new construction is the crown jewel of the home buying experience. And when you can personalize your newly built home, without paying an arm and a leg, a house becomes a home a heck of a lot quicker.

Personalization is one of the many benefits of building a new home vs. purchasing a resale. Consumers love that they can truly ‘make it their own’ upfront instead of a lot of the hassle that comes with renovating an existing home. Beazer takes personalization one step further allowing homeowners to personalize their home at no extra expense through Choice Plans.  Choice Plans are flexible floor plans that give customers the freedom to choose how they want to personalize the most commonly used areas of their home based on their lifestyle…AT NO CHARGE.

Would you rather have that 4th bedroom become a media room or den? Dying to have an island in your kitchen? (I am! I am! Something about a kitchen island that screams "hey everyone, gather around, let's have quality family time!") No problem, the Choice Plans make personalizing your kitchen, master bathrooms and secondary spaces a breeze (where breeze = free)


Why does this matter?

Beazer would like to hear some of the awesome features you and your clients have seen, or would like to see in their next (or if they are like me, their first) brand new home.

The Challenge

Choice Plans from Beazer allow your clients to personalize their new home to fit their needs and lifestyle. What feature (or features if you just can't decide on one) would you most like to see as an option in a new home?

Write a blog post about the feature you'd most like to see in a new home. Share with us why you think every new home should come equipped with this gem and why anyone living in a home without this feature is missing out on the good life.

How To Compete In The Challenge

Once you write your blog post, leave a link to your blog post in the comment section of this post. All entries will receive 500 ActiveRain points. Exceptional entries will receive up to an additional 500 points (based on judging from the staff here at ActiveRain)

In your post, please link back to this post somewhere so that others who read your post will have a chance to participate.

Entries must be submitted prior to Monday, June 30th 11:59pm PDT

Share your entry on Facebook and tag the Beazer Homes’ fan page. (This one is optional, but you can pick up an extra 500 points)

Tweet your entry to @BeazerHomes and include the hashtag #ChoicePlans (again, optional, but you can pick up an extra 500 points)

When you leave a link to your blog, please include whether you should be awarded points for Facebook or Twitter.
