Options/Selections

We received a VA mortgage through NVR and we also selected one of the last 3 lots, so we earned pretty nice incentives! We got our morning room for free ($14,995 value), we received 1/2 off up to $50k in options and had our $4500 lot premium waived!!! I guess that makes up for the fact that getting a VA loan through NVR was extremely tedious and time consuming :( Best part about VA loans? No down payment required and no PMI! Woo-hoo!

  3. Great options! I particularly like your exterior color choices. It should be absolutely gorgeous. Welcome to the insanity of house-building! We're building an Avalon in Central VA, and are about halfway through. (avalonbuildingandblogging.wordpress.com)

  4. Question- Did anyone ever hear of losing your back Master Suite Windows when you have a 1st floor bedroom? I am getting Ravenna and very frustrated right now.
