Buying a NEW Home?

When buying a new home there are 3 types to consider: a custom home, a developer-built home, or a model home. What's the difference? 

Custom home

You have endless choices with a custom home. The products and materials you select are up to you!

Developer-built home

Developers usually have restrictions on the products and materials you use. They've made agreements with suppliers for quantity concessions, so the selection is narrower than with a custom home.

Model home

For model homes, the likeliness of making changes to the kitchen will depend on how far along the construction is. Typically, you will get what you see.
