You should familiarize yourself with all the questions offered up by the two homebuilding sources. There are some hugely important questions that will play a large part in your decision, such as “do you build in the town I want to live in” and “do you have a floorplan that fits my needs?” But, that may not narrow down the field enough for you to make a decision.
