PROTECT YOURSELF

check this website and others for information - get all contracts reviewed before signing - check with the neighbors - put all monies into an escrow account when ever possible (even at closing for the "punch list) - HIRE a qualified inspector or inspectors from the START!!(even before moving dirt) get comparison rates/closings cost from others!! the people at Ryan are selling you something - who do you think they look out for the most?? several websites have checklists - get one and follow it. i share my insprction reports and methods with anyone looking to build in our neighborhood. my inspector even interviewed the subs and said no to some!! i am not the expert - so i hired them protect yourself!!

Ryan Homes Scammed Us

Ryan homes completely lied to us when we purchased our home. We were told we were getting a pool, fitness center,for a small fee and could opt out. After we purchased our home we find there are no amenities,and if we do not pay for a public golf course they can put a lien on our house. They never gave us all the information,and now we are stuck. Trying to fight this in court is hard, and the sales agents are still lying to people. We cannot sell cause of disclosure and foreclosures are everywhere. I would not buy a home from Ryan again, and BEWARE of false promises, ask questions, get several attorneys to look at your documents. PROTECT Yourself

I purchased a Ryan home and was happy with the outcome of the building, but NVR was a nightmare. Theloan officer i had was a lier and a cheat.

She didnt do all she was suppose to such as lock in my rate when i told her to and there was nothing we could do about it.

If i ever by another Ryan Home i will never deal with NVR, I will simply refuse whatever incentives they are offering. :sigh

Master developer -- whatever! Hindsight's 20/20, and I can pick out the moments when the sales rep either flat out lied or "spun" the actual language about a particular topic, when my wife and I were negotiating the contract.

We haven't yet taken delivery on the house, so I can't speak to the quality of the product -- but beware the contract, and the salesperson "helping" you. Get a lawyer -- no deal is worth the headaches you'll have the rest of the time dealing with Ryan!

I'm an NV homeowner (Ryan's sister company under the NVR umbrella) and I have to agree with Chris that this is most likely a master developer issue and not a Ryan issue. Ryan generally reserves lots from the master developer (rather than acting as a master developer themselves) so they are responsible for building their homes only - not responsible for infrastructure or the common areas.

In our community the master developer is going through a really hard time because of the economy, so they were really slacking on providing us with the amenities that the NV sales staff had promised verbally and on the community website. It obviously doesn't do NV any good to have a bunch of pissed off customers, especially since we are such a good referral source for new home sales in our community - so NV stepped up to the plate and made sure that we got the amenities that we were promised. Sorry to hear that your experience was different!

Do you know who the master developer of your community is?? I would be very interested to know.

I have bought a Ryan Homes and this sounds like a developer issue more so than a Ryan Homes issue. Sales Reps usually only represent what they have been told/promised by someone else.

Usually there is a developer at fault in these situations, because they are responsible for what are called "Common Area Improvements". If those were not installed, then that is on the developer.

they did the same thing to us, but we were able to move before the market turned. good luck

DO NOT finance through NVR Mortgage. They have been known to alter contracts, and give people the option of signing the *** deals point blank at closing or default on their contract and lose tens of thousands on their non-refundable deposit. In one case, NVR/Ryan homes...

I just locked in a 4.75% interest rate with NVR and they are also giving me a 2,400 credit towards closing. Although I initially did not want to go through NVR just to receive the incentives, I'm glad I finally did. They have been one of the more professional mortgage companies I've worked with.

I purchased a Ryan home in 2005. What a major disappointment. The trouble began from day one with the closing. NVR mortgage and Ryan homes are one in the same. Be careful. After construction, my punch list consisted of approx. 100 items to be repaired or finished.(i.e....

We have had a Ryan home for four years and just found out the dishwasher had a crack in it this whole time. Now we need to have 7 feet of our floor taken our and the island is starting to buckle.

Also there is mold and the floor is rotted.

Ryan claims they will not cover anything. This is so sad because I actually met Ed Ryan 20 years ago and I am sure this is not what he had in mind for his companay.

Don't buy a Ryan Home!!!! We have had an ongoing issue with an improperly sealed exterior that has been causing water damage!!!

We now have rotten wood, a window where the insulation has warped and a front door frame that is now warped and causing major issues. Instead of stepping up and fixing the problem, the guy who is responsible for our development told me Ryan Homes will do nothing to help and that it is my fault. Even though we caulked the thing EVERY year, the problem continued to persist and we had them come out numerous times to fix, but it never was fixed properly. The independent contractor we brought out to look at this also said that Ryan Homes did not fix this properly.

Very dissapointed in the lack of customer service and the attitude I received. again DO NOT BUY A RYAN HOME!!!!

Sure there are happy Ryan Homes homeowners in Knox, TN. Wisconsin, Illinois and(blocked I.P.

location) No matter that Ryan Homes doesn't build homes in any of these places. I'm sure there are some actual good reviews from real customers on gripe sites.

To think otherwise would require a complete loss of faith in the incredibly *** American consumer. :sigh
