Anyone who has spent years saving up and working hard to finally earn a chance at owning a home would be wise to know it’s not quite like going to the store to buy a new refrigerator. Owning a home and getting a loan is serious business, and if you don’t make all the right moves you could end up regretting your decision before you know it. You also may be in a position to build your home, even if you feel like a custom home is out of reach for you. Read about our happy customers: the Rosen family.The Rosen’s were able to build their dream home with Drees Homes even though at first they thought a custom home was far out of their reach.
