Home Buying Basics

For one of life's biggest purchases, be sure

While there are so many factors that go into any home buying decision, there's one aspect of the process that you really can simplify—know the track record and reputation of the builder of your home. We gladly offer that advice as we're sure you'll like what you discover about Van Metre homes.


What should I look for in a homebuilder?

  • Your homebuilder should have many years of experience and offer a wide variety of models.
  • Choose a homebuilder with the proven financial wherewithal to guarantee they'll be there throughout the life of your home’s warranty.
  • Choose a company with roots in the area you're in which you're settling—it will be easier to confirm claims of a quality reputation.
  • Pick a homebuilder dedicated to satisfying your needs and delivering quality service for years to come.

Should I buy a new home that is already built or build a new home to my specifications?

You're going to live in your home for a long time. Buying a home that is still under construction allows you to customize to your exact needs and interests. Van Metre will work with you to design the perfect home to fit you and your family. Van Metre’s standard features far exceed those of other builders, so a new, move-in ready Van Metre Home may already be ideal. Talk to us to determine which is best for you.

How do I know that a Van Metre home is right for me?

Van Metre’s reputation for building top quality homes at affordable prices is renowned, but don’t just take our word for it. Our owners are glad to speak on our behalf about their Van Metre homebuying experience.
