Our Journey Building a Florence

The Venice or the Florence? We went back and forth for weeks but simply couldn't part ways with the Florence floor plan. Both are reasonably priced but the Florence is about $10,000 cheaper with 3 bedrooms, while the Venice has 4 bedrooms. We decided to go with the Florence because we were able to add a 4th bedroom and still end up $8,000 cheaper than the Venice while only sacrificing ~250 SF of living space. Now all we needed to do was sign a purchase agreement with Ryan Homes and pick a lot, and go over options. Incentives offered were a Value Package upgrade in the kitchen and Morning Room, free washer and dryer and $5,000 toward closing if you use NVR, Ryan Home's preferred lender.

Late note: We were able to get them to add an additional $5,000 in closing assistance, so it looks like we will get money back at closing or be able to update a few things after they give us the $10k. Yay. You have to love end of year sales.
