Shopping for a large production or custom home builder can be a daunting task.  Start by defining what architectural styles appeal to you and then seek out the builders in your area who offer those styles.  Due diligence is essential.  Unlike most builders, Lennar offer a home that has everything included.  What does that mean for the buyer?  In the case of upgrades, it is simply a matter of over pricing them above what you could get done from an individual subcontractor.  I’m not saying that Lennar does not offer upgrades, but most of the “typical” upgrades in the modern home as “granite” countertops are included.  Whereas, a lot of builder charge higher prices at their “design centers”.  This is just something to think about when deciding on purchasing a home.

Home prices are still very affordable in the Tampa Bay Market.  This is especially true for Spec” (speculation) homes, which are often the best places to get the best deals.  These homes are built by builders without an intended purchaser in mind (Hence the builder is speculating that they will find a builder to buy the home).
