What is your buying power?
Plain City, Ohio’s cost of living is 11% lower than the national average. That’s great news, but how much is it going to cost to build in Plain City? There are many factors, including the cost of land, excavation, and which floor plan you choose. However, almost anything is possible once you define your buying power.
In order to do that, you need to get pre-approved for financing.

Simply contact Premier Bank to get started, and you will be pre-approved before you know it.
Where do you want to build in Plain City, OH?
If you don’t already have land, you’ll need to purchase a homesite. Since Wayne Homes is a custom on-your-lot builder, your next step toward a home will be identifying your land. A good place to start is by working with a licensed Realtor, like our preferred real estate partner in the area, Jodie Monebrake.
