Shea Homes at Ardiente, a 55+ resort community located in North Las Vegas, has defied the Nevada housing market crisis and is experiencing record high sales among Boomers looking for their dream community. In fact, Ardiente has sold more than 70 homes in 2013 so far  and is expecting to finish out 2013 with a staggering sales increase compared to 2012.

Why is Ardiente doing so well?… As our new homebuyers and Shea residents tell us, they don’t want to spend another year dreaming about the lifestyle they’ve always wanted. There is no better time than the present to start having the time of their lives.

55+ Living Re-imagined

For these new Ardiente homeowners, having an empty nest or shifting into retirement has opened the door to a whole new way of living. No longer bound by the responsibilities that have engrossed them all these years has made it possible to re-imagine life on their own terms. It’s an exciting time that Shea Homes understands more than any other homebuilder, and it’s also why Ardiente is the perfect community to embark on a new phase of life.

“How life can change in one short year. This was one of the best decisions my sister and I could have made. It was certainly a huge change coming from 6 1/2 acres in the woods of New Hampshire to living in the city. But, Ardiente isn’t just any old place in the city. Ardiente is a family with new friends and a close-knit community that makes these life changes so much easier,” explained Ardiente residents Kat Snell & Deb Dwelly.

With the community’s beautiful amenities and stunning location, homebuyers describe Ardiente as living half way between a vacation and real life. Tucked away amid the natural beauty of the Mojave Desert in the quiet corner of the Las Vegas Valley,  Ardiente is minutes from the The Strip – providing homeowners the peacefulness of a remote location while still allowing close access to one of the most vibrant, entertainment centers in the country.

“The community is simply beautiful and full of friendly people. The activities are limitless and there really is something for everyone,” explained Keith and Gloria Soales, residents at Ardiente. “The location is second to none in our opinion being about 20 minutes from the strip or airport and having limitless beauty to explore in every direction. We feel we couldn’t have picked a better place to live. In a nutshell, we’re lovin’ it!”
