Dan and Dee Miller (homeowners) Testimonial

Community: Preston, Cary

Buyers: Dan and Dee Miller

Builder: Rex Bost Construction

Dan and Dee Miller were perfectly happy in their home by Rex Bost Construction in Cary’s Wessex neighborhood, but suddenly got new-home fever as they saw another Rex Bost creation coming to life.

“We watched this house being built because it’s on a main road that we use a lot, and one day we just stopped and went in. We thought, ‘Gosh, this is a beautiful house.’ Several months later, we walked through it again and talked to the builder, who happened to have been our builder in Wessex,” explains Dee.

The Millers discussed the situation for about a month, deciding that any move they made was going to have to be worthwhile. They didn’t want to move into something similar to what they had, particularly since they were pretty happy where they were.

“We really didn’t have intentions of moving, but we started looking around and kind of got the fever,” she laughs. “We kept having this house in the back of our minds.”

At the beginning of November, the couple finally closed on the home they had fallen in love with, a Parade of Homes entry built on an acre lot in Cary’s Preston neighborhood. It is almost twice the size of their Wessex home, with a third-floor media room, which Dee jokingly calls Dan’s “dude room.”

Prior to deciding on the Preston home, the Millers had looked for a short while at existing homes in Cary, but couldn’t find what they wanted. Dee said she finds the new construction clean and appealing. In addition, she and Dan were able to select certain options, including wall colors and faucet fixtures.

“The nice thing is that we have a one-year warranty with the builder, who will fix anything that needs to be fixed. To be quite honest, I’ve never bought a house that wasn’t brand-new.”

Being able to work with their previous builder on the new house ensured a smooth building and closing process.

“We dealt directly with Rex because we knew him personally. Rex really wants to please people. I think it was a benefit to him to have a previous owner of one of his homes want to stay with him,” Dee said.
