What benefits do I get from building a new home?


Favorable Pricing

The competition among homebuilders makes new homes less likely to be over priced. New homes are easy to compare with other new homes in the market equating value to value. The homes are the same age and options are declared up front with a price breakdown for comparative shopping. We offer competitve pricing and are known tfor going that extra mile to keep our customers coming back and referring us to their friends and family.


Energy Efficiency

Low maintenance is one of the most important features of new homes being built today. New technology in building materials has made the homes of today virtually mantenance-free, especially on the exterior. No longer does a homeowner have to worry about painting every 3-5 years. Because we are using the latest technology, your new home also meets stricter energy codes than older homes. This results in savings for you on energy bills. ”


Your Opinion Matters

With a new home, you become the decorator before you move in. Choice of carpet, wall coverings, paint color, lighting fixtures, etc. enables you to live with your personal selections and not be restricted by the taste of the previous owners. DHC offers a wide variety of functional floor plans to fit your lifestyle, with the opportunity to eliminate or add rooms, upgrade materials, add special architecture, and customize your home.

tips for Building new

Understand your contract.

Start by reading the contract and understanding it. You are paying (or will pay over the next 25-30 years) for the knowledge of the builders -- their experience and ability.

Save on building costs.

Keep costs in perspective; $10 a thousand more for brick you like better translates into only $100 more when 10,000 bricks (a typical amount) are involved.

Be flexible.

The builder is fully capable of doing anything, BUT, this all will come with a price -- so be careful and wary of unique, inordinate, or far-out requests, new technology, and untested materials and equipment.
