Dr. Horton Express HomesDr. Horton, Americas largest Home Builder, recently announced a new series of homes designed specifically with first time home buyers in mind. Their Express Homes series offer new, affordable homes designed for home buyers looking to achieve the benefits of home ownership. Their focus is on value and quality, while offering an affordable monthly mortgage. Express homes all feature 2-Car Garages and offer at least three bedrooms and two baths. Perhaps the most attractive feature of the Express Homes series is the price point, which are starting in the low $100’s. Jacksonville is fortunate enough to be one of the 13 test markets for the new series.

“We wouldn’t be getting into the Express brand if we didn’t feel like that that was the next segment of the business to recover,” D.R. Horton CEO Donald Tomnitz said during the company’s April quarterly conference call.  As home prices have risen the past two years, first-time buyers have been priced out of the market, Tomnitz said. With Express Homes, the company hopes to convert young adults who are living with their parents and renters into home owners. “If we can get that product price point down, then I believe there are people out there who truly will buy,” Tomnitz said.
