Purchasing a brand new home in Dayton should be an exciting adventure but can also be overwhelming with the vast number of home builders jockeying for your business, the many building locations to choose from, and the nearly limitless number of home options and possibilities available! As a locally owned home builder, Peebles Homes is an active member of Home Builders Association of Dayton and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).
In addition to the typical questions of “How much does it cost?,” and “When can we move in?,” NAHB suggest you ask your home builder the following questions:
Will the builder give you references of recent home buyers?
Does the builder have a financing plan established or relationship with an established lender?
Are there options in the floor plan — for example, can a basement or deck be added?
Can a room such as the basement be left unfinished?
How much “customizing” can be done versus standard features?
Can appliances be up- or down-graded?
Are there any additional fees relating to the home or development?
Will there be a home owners’ association? If so, what will the dues cost and what do they cover?
Does the builder offer a warranty program?
Does the price include landscaping? What if the plants die within a year?
Are there any restrictive covenants?
What are the estimated taxes on the property?
How is the school system rated?
Are day care and grocery stores convenient located to the neighborhood?
What about emergency facilities — police, fire department and hospitals?
Are there any major development plans for the area in the next five years?
