Industry Expert Review

Fairfield and Dorn Homes pull together a unique community with a one of a kind opportunity for residents to purchase a new home within the desirable Green Valley Recreation Area. While many people love the Green Valley Recreation Concept they must accept having to purchase a much older home, which may or may not require additional maintenance or updating. Today's more modern homes feature more open design concepts and more energy saving features. Most of the homes built in the 60's,70's & 80's featured 8' ceilings, so Fairfield and Dorn Homes are wisely building homes with 10' Ceilings. As well as other energy saving features to appeal to those wanting to purchase New Homes over Resales.
