Across America various real estate markets are starting to show signs of turning around for overall home value. It is a good sign to home builders like Ashton Woods creating new communities like Phoenix, Austin, and Orlando.They now have energy efficient homes Homes for sale in Phoenix that offer a wide range of features and looks that will appeal to a large base of home buyers. With their focus on offering energy efficient homes that can save most home owners up to 47% off their utilities this can be a huge advantage. I had a chance to check out of their planned communities Laurel Ridge where they offer two story homes with three car garages and great features like vaulted ceilings. Phoenix is a great area to live and offers a lot to do outdoors and year round climate that is sought out by those looking to escape the colder areas.
