Want better quality and cheaper – Mattamy North Carolina


Surprising the difference in prices between a Mattamy home in North Carolina and here in Ontario.

“This to-be-built home is the “Marigold” plan by Mattamy Homes, and is located in the community of The Waterlynn (Moorseville, North Carolina). This plan home is priced from $211,990 and has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 1 half baths, is 2,225 square feet, and has a 2-car garage. The Waterlynn features Single Family homes by Mattamy Homes.”

Moorseville, North Carolina

Now, in Brampton, you will get a 1832 sq foot home with a one car garage, and the price starts at a whopping  $370.990. according to the Mattamy website.

$150,000 difference

Now, an executive townhome in Milton will start at $469,990 but it is 2,822 sq feet.  So, you pay an extra $258,000 for about 600 more sq. feet and detached but you get the 2 car garage.

Now, I know with the Canadian dollar, taxes and other issues, our homes will be more expensive.  It’s a given.  Now you know how much.

My question is:  For the extra money we are paying, are they any better in quality?  According to my unscientific research (web surfing), I’d have to say no when it comes to complaints, as I’ve really not seen any in North Carolina but I have Florida, Michigan and of course, various areas around Ontario.  Based on this, you can get a cheaper Mattamy home that is probably built better if you want to move to North Carolina.

For those of us stuck in Ontario, I guess we have to settle for second best.  Interesting, considering Mattamy started in Ontario. 

 Guess familiarity breeds contempt – right Gilgan?
