Keller Williams Realty
An experienced buyer's agent should be able to help you. Also, A HOME INSPECTION is critical because the quality delivered by each of these builders will vary depending on the construction superintendant on THAT community.
The new home agent may say "You don't need a home inspection". Not so. The county inspects for code compliance, not quality of construction.

"Better" is a subjective term so without knowing what you like and what your needs are, there's no real nor good way to answer your question. I can comment on my buyers' and my personal experiences working with those three builders, but that may not answer you question directly.
Feel free to give me a call or email me - I'll be glad to share my buyers' and my personal experiences with you and answer your question in detail once I know what your specific tastes and needs are.

Best of luck and if you decide to contact a realtor for representation, feel free to contact me - 540.454.1551 or firstname.lastname@example.org...thanks!
Thanks a ton for your suggestions. But the area am looong at is ashburn 20147 as the schools are of prime importance! Brambleton is a great location but don't match our expectations on schools! So question is if the suggestions would still b valid for toll Ryan or pulte homes located in ashburn 20147?
Once again Tx for all the inputs will keep all in mind before calling a realtor of the builder!
I agree with my colleagues below, and very much with Vicky. I believe that there are troubles in dealing with any new home builder, but I have built 2 homes myself. Ryan is probably ranked the lowest of the 3, and I have built with Ryan personally in the past. Toll Bros is usually ranked pretty high, they are a large company and probably build the most houses in our area out of the 3. At the end of the day, if you are not careful, any of these companies could end up putting you in a bad deal.
Get an agent to represent you as the sales rep represents the builder. Visit the builders, and Van Metre is also building in Brambleton area. I would consider them as well. Take a look at their floor plans, price out what you want including your options (this is where they get you!) and then see how they are willing to "deal". It will be helpful if you price out a few different builders to get a good comparison. Then you should also look at the re-sale units as comparables to make sure you are not drastically out-pricing your market.
You should consider that new construction is often like a new car...there is an up-charge for the "new". You can often get a more reasonable price on a re-sale home that has been updated or is a few years old.

I would love to help you and am very familiar personally and professionally representing clients in Re-sale and New construction purchases. I can help you weigh the pros and cons between the 2 as well as between the builders.
