In this area, we have homes built by Standard Pacific Homes, DR Horton, Lennar, Ryan Homes, KB Homes, M/I Homes, Terramor Homes, Poythress Building Co., John Wieland Homes, Chesapeake Homes, ForeverHome, LLC, Pulte Homes, and the list goes on and on. Most of these builders have been in business for years and years and their reputation precedes them. If they were not building a good product for satisfied customers they would not have survived this long.
You are on the right track by looking at the warranty they offer but I think that is where the comparison ends because all the builders use different types of decorative crown moldings, tray ceilings, fixtures, windows, stairs, doors, etc. etc. depending on the style of the home, the price point and design features, etc. Unless you specifically want a â€˜greenâ€™ home which would sway you more to a builder like â€˜Meritageâ€™ I think the comparison becomes a personal preference. Toll Brothers has won many, many builder of the year awards and I donâ€™t get the fascination but have fallen in love with homes built by Standard Pacific Homes, MI Homes and many other builders instead. My point is: look for a home that meets your criteria and suits your lifestyle, and if it gives you that warm, fuzzy feeling, has a good inspection report, appraises and you can afford it, be happy in it :-)ïŠ
