Match Your Lifestyle to a Taylor Morrison New Home

Some folks go for the hustle, bustle and energy of urban living. Others prefer the easier pace, peace and quiet of life in the suburbs. No judgment here–both lifestyles have their perks and attractions. But if you’re in the market for a new home it pays to prioritize your preferences (especially if you’re not the only person making the decision). After all, you wouldn’t want to be stuck driving an SUV if you have a sports car soul. And a home mortgage is a way bigger commitment than a car payment.

Here’s a quick quiz to help you decide whether you’re an urbanite or suburbanite. Then you can take a peek at some new  Taylor Morrison communities that might be just your style, or do a little exploring on your own to find your perfect new home.

You Might be an Urbanite If:

  • The night life is your life
  • You do not enjoy a long commute (if any)
  • Museums, concerts, art exhibits and lectures ring your chimes
  • You like walking to the corner coffee shop
  • A walk in the park is your idea of communing with nature
  • A 10-speed bicycle replaced your sedan

You Might be a Suburbanite If:

  • You want a yard and lots of it
  • The sound of cicadas, hoot owls and wind rustling the trees puts you at ease
  • You’re into playdates, PTA and other parenthood pursuits
  • As long as you’ve got a good audio book you’re okay with commuting to work
  • Backyard barbecues and block parties with the neighbors are a great way to spend Saturday
  • The closer you are to nature the closer you are to happiness

Okay, it’s not a conclusive test, but it will get you thinking about what you want in a home and community. Now let’s help find a place that appeals to you.
