1. Home pricing between builders is
As with cars, you have the base model and the fully loaded
one. The difference between the two, are all the options.
Most builders employ two ways of pricing their homes. The first is
the striped down model, with the customer being charged for each option or
upgrade. The benefit to the builder is they can advertise a low "Base Model"
price. The down side to the customer is they can easily feel like they are being
nickel and dimed for every little thing they want.
The second, which Worthington Homes uses, is to strike
a balance between including enough nice features and not so many you are paying
for features you don't want. Of course, as a custom builder we view the features
as a guideline. Our customers have the freedom to add or remove features as they
2. What does Worthington Homes' price
Our price provides you a completely finished home, inside and
out. The outside includes the driveway, sod, & landscaping. Inside includes all major appliances,
and flooring. We even include hand mounted storm shutters in our
The interior décor, such as you see in our models, is not
included. Things like window coverings, furniture, wallpaper and the like are
displayed in our model to help our customers see how their home might look.
3. We don't have a home site. Can you help us find one?
While we are not a real estate firm, we do work
with several Realtors who specialize in home site sales. You are
welcome to use one of them, find your own agent or search for a site
Keep in mind the size home you want to build. Make
sure the foot print of your home will fit within the set backs of
the home site you are considering.
4. What do we need to keep in mind
about site preparation?
If you are considering buying a site, does it have
central water and sewer? If it will be a septic system, a perk test
will verify that the ground can accommodate one. Is the site in an
bald eagle zone? If it is, no building permits will be issued during
the nesting period, which is several months long! Does the site need
clearing? Does it need fill? Is there any hidden debris, such as
discarded concrete slabs, that are covered by vegetation?
As you can see, there are many factors that can
affect site preparation. Hiring Worthington Homes, takes the worry
out of all this!
5. Does Worthington Homes provide financing?
We are not set up as a lending firm. We do,
several lenders we can recommend that are both competitive and
service driven. Or you are welcome to chose any lender you wish.
6. Can we make changes to floor
plans, selections, etc.?
Oh yes! We are a custom home builder. That
means, as long as you apply enough money, we can build it.
You can make changes to our stock floor plans or
we can create a new plan using your ideas and concepts. You, not us,
select everything from the front to the back door, from the flooring
to the roof.
7. How long does it take to build?
That depends on the complexity of your home. Our
stock plans typically take 5 - 6 months from the time we break ground.
delays do happen from time to time and are typically out of the
builder’s control. (Weather, materials shortages, etc.) Barring any
of these types of delays, once we get started on your home, a reliable
timetable can be provided.
8. Can we build 2 story homes?
Absolutely! We can go as high as the local
restrictions allow. We can even build in an elevator!

handicap access or special needs?
