About Us

The Paytas commitment to quality began in 1970 when the family name started in home building. Paytas Homes, Inc. was founded by second-generation builder Jim Paytas, Jr., and has built a reputation upon quality, superb design of homes, communities and lifestyles, impeccable service and customer satisfaction. Consistent glowing referrals and hundreds of satisfied customers are the driving forces which continue to make Paytas Homes the best local builder. Jim Paytas, Jr. is a lifelong resident of the greater Daytona Beach area and is well known and respected by the community and his peers. He is a longtime member of the National, State and Local Home Builders Associations and serves as a Director for the Florida Home Builders Association and past President of Volusia Home Builders Association.

We continue the tradition that began years ago with Jim Mather as President, who has been dedicated to the company since 1999. He is a Licensed Florida Contractor, Realtor and 2015 President of the Volusia Home Builders Association who has embodied all of the values that have made us successful.


We offer a wide range of home designs and floor plans that host the latest in features and functionality while understanding the needs of your lifestyle. Whether you desire a home for a growing family, an active lifestyle with low maintenance or a grand custom design with all you can imagine, we have an option for you. Our communities feature floor plans that have been designed specifically with expandable options to allow you to customize your new home to fit your needs. All home designs also feature the Paytas award winning touch in architecture both inside and out to allow you many years of proud ownership.


Everyone involved from introduction to move-in shares the passion for quality that you can expect in a Paytas Home. We put extraordinary effort and attention to every detail. From concept to foundation and shingle to shrub, Paytas Homes are built with one thing in mind. You.
