"Alexa, Where is the Nearest Taylor Morrison Community?"
National homebuilder makes home shopping easier with release of Amazon Alexa skill and brand-new website

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Dec. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Now, more than ever before, consumers are shopping online—homes included. Taylor Morrison Home Corporation (NYSE: TMHC), a leading national homebuilder and developer, recently launched a Taylor Morrison skill for Amazon Alexa and an innovative new website to better help customers search for their dream home.

"The ability to meet our customers where they already are—which is largely in their homes—is instrumental in our mission of showing consumers we're considerate and compassionate," said Stephanie McCarty, chief marketing and communications officer. "Buying a home is often the largest purchase of someone's life and, truthfully, it comes with one of the longest, most emotional retail experiences of anything you can buy. Our goal is to help our buyers shop in today's modern era, and in the same fashion they do for everything else—digitally."

The new Taylor Morrison skill for Amazon Alexa helps customers shop for a home from the comfort of their current one. Alexa can search for nearby Taylor Morrison communities, send driving directions to your mobile device, schedule a tour of a community and more. To watch the Taylor Morrison skill for Amazon Alexa come to life, visit https://www.taylormorrison.com/alexa-skill.

To further solidify themselves in the digital age, the homebuilder also completely redesigned their website. It includes a sleek and modern design, playful and captivating copy, and stunning photography. Furthermore, customers can do more research at home with forward thinking  features like interactive community site maps showing which lots are available or sold and which floorplans can be built on each lot. Virtual 3D floorplan tours also make it possible for shoppers to experience visiting a Taylor Morrison model or community without having to walk out their front door.

"Our homes and communities are beautiful—and while we'd love for every shopper to experience them in-person—we know many consumers are eager to do much of their home search and buying process online," added McCarty.
