Jonathon_VA_Ext_Willowsford_RET_2_W.jpgIf you are considering a new construction home, there are many decisions to make in order to get started. One of the very first is the type of home you are looking for and the best builder for that home. As an experienced realtor for new construction homes, I've worked with the top Virginia builders to negotiate discounts and upgrades for my home buyers. In my two recent blogs, we've explored Pulte Homes and their technology as well as Beazer Homes' energy efficient construction. In this article, you can expect to learn about another one of the top builders in the Virginia, Maryland and DC Metro area -Richmond American Homes. I recommend researching and comparing as many builders as you can within the buying location before making a decision in order to ensure you are getting exactly what you need in your new home.
