I also have a client building a home with Avex. As Ian said its very important to have a Realtor that can help you through the process. We chose the floor plan & elvaton, picked all the options in the design center, went to the pre construction meeting. We are at the block stage. The pre construction meeting is very important. This is where the avex president will go over the specific plans (blue prints ) of your particular home. Sometimes things like windows that were on the floor plan flier are not going to be built in the home so its critical go to go over detail. A realtor can also help negiotate additional design center credits and reduce lot premium fees. Please feel free to call me with any questions or if you'd like to go up to the sales center. There is no additional costs to a buyer for using the expertise of a Realtor who looks out for your best interest. The sales folks work for the builder.
