D.R.Horton has had a good reputation in the industry for many years, but things do change, so it is always best, when purchasing a new home from D.R. Horton, or any other builder for that matter, to do you own research, meaning online, there sure to be a blog or to out there in cyberspace on the developer or community you are looking at, ask others who have purchased in the community what their opinion is and consider hiring a home inspector to conduct a home inspection for you. The builder, in most cases, won't like this, but if they have done their job correctly, then they should embrace this opportunity to show off their work. Remember, once they have sold the homes in that community, the sales agent is moving on, you, on the other hand, are going to be living in the home you purchased.
All the Best.
