DR Horton

My fiance and I have seriously been considering a DR Horton home. The prices seem to be very good for the amount of space we would be getting. But, something feels a little off about this builder. Do you happen to have any advice or knowledge about his business practices and the quality of his homes? 

Sincerely, 

Worried Home Buyer

Check better business Bureau etc on DR Horton.  They seem to build decent mid priced homes.

The only thing I've read is that DR Horton homes don't get repairs that are needed after the closing. I'm looking at one in Whitsett NC because the price is good, neighborhood is great and it's in the right school zone. There are al many reviews for Florida and Texas but I can't find anything for North Carolina. I do have a realtor and she doesn't have anything bad to say about Horton homes. I thought buying new construction would be best but now, I don't know. Can anyone recommend a good builder in the Greensboro/ Burlington area?

Dear Worried Home Buyer:

You are making a big purchase, so it is best to protect and educate yourself.  As recommended above, always get a home inspection.  Do you have a buyer's agent for yourself?  Sometimes home buyers think that they are saving money or think that the seller's representative is their agent.  The seller's representative represents the seller, not you.  A real estate agent of your own will be able to provide comparable sale information and recommend a trusted home inspection company.

DR Horton is a national builder, get a home inspection and then make your decision.  Trust your gut.

DR Horton is like any large builder. They have complaints. If you are buying new, it does not mean the house has no issues so be sure to have your house inspected before you buy and expect that it will take time to have any discovered issues addressed after you move in. Some builders are better about fixing items than others.

Google the builder name with the word "review" after it or the word "complaints" or go to yelp.com
