Arizona has long been known as a popular destination for homeowners further north to build homes to spend the winters in. Instead of worrying about sub-zero temperatures and getting snowed in, they head south to enjoy mild winters and the occasional white Christmas. Sometimes referred to as “snowbirds,” these visitors help boost the state’s economy and sometimes become permanent or semi-permanent residents. With summer coming to a close, it’s time to welcome back those friends and neighbors that spend summers elsewhere. For readers that may be considering buying or building a winter home, read on to learn a little more about some of the recent changes to Dorn Homes’ communities that could help you make that decision.
Homes for Your Home on Wheels
While not necessarily snowbirds, our RV owning homeowners do share the desire to wander to better weather. You may spend more time on the road than you do at home, or maybe you just enjoy the comfort of an RV on a sightseeing trip across the country every once in a while. Whichever the case, Dorn Homes’ communities at Walden Farms, Pronghorn Ranch, and The Vistas all offer RV garages, making them ideal locations for your home away from home. All three communities also make great base camps to explore Northern Arizona’s Rim Country, the Grand Canyon, Painted Desert, and Historic Route 66, not to mention the millions of acres of National Forest land that surrounds us.
As Dorn Homes works to develop many exciting new communities we also wrap up construction in some of our favorites. In fact, we currently have two communities that are winding down. This means that, if you’ve been thinking about relocating, the opportunity to be part of these communities is going fast. Quailwood, our popular and affordable community just East of Prescott Valley is down to their last lots, as is our Victorian-inspired community of Astoria. For homebuyers interested in the hill-perched Astoria community and its breathtaking views overlooking Prescott’s area lakes and Granite Dells, there are spec homes available as well.
Options and Opportunities in Walden Farms
For homebuyers interested in the location and amenities of Walden Farms that may be looking for lock-and-leave options or part-time living, you’re in luck. Dorn Homes now offers a wider variety of floor plans at Walden Farms, including homes with smaller footprints that would be ideal for homeowners that spend parts of the year traveling or even living elsewhere.
If the possibility of relocating to one of these communities has been on your mind, take some time and come back for another visit. You’ll find new opportunities at some communities and the last chance to be part of others. Whether you’re looking to put down roots or you’d rather let the winds guide you where they may, you’ll find a community at Dorn Homes that will welcome you with open arms.
