I think builders in DFW are a little ahead of the curve compared to the US as a whole, but there are still "starter" home builders (F&J/DR Horton/Legacy) in 150-200K include about 70% of these features, but not all. You would be surprised at how many don't. Not all have 9 ft. ceilings and sep. tub and shower, and energy effiecent lighting standard. Builders will introduce a low base price and not include the before mentioned to get traffic in the door. That is why pros like us can help these buyers negotiate the upgrades for free.
