Ready to buy your first home? Congratulations on this exciting milestone!

When choosing a new home, it’s important to consider a number of factors, including the floor plan, features, amenities, price point and—you guessed it—location. If you need a little help with the latter, consider these three great markets for first-time buyers.

Jacksonville, Florida

Mild temperatures, sandy white beaches, a thriving economy and entry-level home prices make Jacksonville a great choice for brand-new homeowners. This hot housing market beckons first-time buyers who are looking to enjoy the ultimate Florida lifestyle without exceeding their budgets.

If you are considering calling the Jacksonville area home, check out our versatile Seasons™ Collection homes, priced from the upper $100s at Rolling Hills at Lake Asbury, and from the low $200s at The Crossings at Bartram.


Tucson, Arizona

The 33rd largest city in the US is surrounded by five distinct mountain ranges which, as you can imagine, makes for some pretty breathtaking scenery. Tucson also boasts over 350 days of sunshine a year, drawing the attention of hikers, bikers, golfers and all manner of outdoor enthusiasts. Factor in the city’s rich cultural and emerging food scenes (if you have yet to try a Sonoran hot dog, you’re missing out!), and it’s no wonder so many people are planting roots in this southwestern paradise.

If you would like to buy your first home in Tucson, explore our inviting Seasons™ Collection homes, priced within reach at La Estancia.

Las Vegas, Nevada

There’s no denying that Las Vegas is a top vacation destination. But the dazzling desert oasis is also a wonderful place to live and work. In addition to the bright lights of the legendary Strip, the city boasts abundant recreational opportunities, including hiking in the Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, boating at the Lake Mead National Recreation Area and golfing at one of the area’s many notable courses.

If you’re ready to double down and settle down in Las Vegas, be sure to visit Moonstone. Our sought-after Seasons™ Collection homes at this exceptional community start from the mid $200s.
