DO NOT BUY FROM RYAN HOMES

Update by user Aug 07, 2013

Original review posted by user Aug 07, 2013

Cheap materials, unsupervised construction, mistake cover ups, *** service, terrible sub contractors...And that was all in the first 10 months. I do not feel safe in this home. Its all about getting as many homes built as fast as you can at Ryan Homes.. NO matter the consequences. Ryan prays that they get past their "1 year" warranty. The service supervisors are only trained to give "corporate answers" and try to put a bandaid over issues in hopes of getting past their 1 year. I should have paid more attention to the negative reviews. I will never purchase from Ryan nor will I ever recommend.

Ryan Homes - Poor craftmanship

my wife and I live in a community in Dover Delaware built by Ryan homes and I tell you my 5 year old son could have built a better house. From the outside it looks beautiful but on the inside there are so many flaws in this house its crazy. this house is just a little over a year old and base boards by the stairs are coming away from the wall. the wall line itself is crooked in some areas and it is very poorly insulated. There are no options for better insulation like spray foam to better insulate the house and there several cold zones in the house as well. I strongly recommend that none under any circumstances should buy anything with Ryan homes name on it or anyone affiliated with them.

Ryan Homes - *** placing of garage in front of house

A Ryan Homes ad in today's Phila. Inquirer shows a 2-car garage approached in the front of the house, with what appears to be two rows of bushes planted in front of the garage, with no hard surface in front of the garage. It's absolutely *** and silly. Further, the garage takes up about half of the front of the house, and with the entrance, it takes up about 70% of the front. Assuming that an owner would want to remove the misplaced plants in front of the garage, how in the world can you do any landscaping when you have only about 30% of the front available, all on one side of the front face? Homes like this have the potential for beauty, but when the the garage entry is in front their beauty is spoiled. Garages would be best if placed as a separate building in the rear of the property. If builders include the garage as part of the building to try to make it look like a big house (They must think they're fooling people.), the garage should at least be put at the back of the house, with the entrance on the side. Often people use the garage or part of it for storage; when the door is left open, the sight is usually far from neat or attractive. Often, they make a room out of the garage by removing the garage door and walling up the opening; this often looks strange or ugly, because it never matches the construction material of the rest of the house. Further, if all or many of the houses have garages in front, people park their cars on the driveway in front of the garage (or its converted room) and the street begins to look like a damned used-car lot. If builders think they must make the garage a part of the house, they should do themselves, their potential customers, and the communities a favor and put the garage in the back and its approach from the side – for greater beauty, better curb appeal, better street appeal, and better neighborhood appeal. My friends and I would never buy a house with the garage in the front. Builders should keep no-car clutter in mind, even if they have to make the building lot a little wider and less deep. I couldn't send these comments direct to Ryan Homes, because they don't have their email address on their website. Maybe you can forward this to them.

Saw the same picture. It is indeed a model home, they'll yank the bushes & do the driveway in settlement.

I think nowadays, most people - like me - prefer an attached garage. I agree that front entry is least attractive - though I've had 2 such houses, in 2 different states - but it's an issue of lot size / placement in many cases.

Three cheers for this site. I agree. These houses look horrible.

It is true that the lots aren't wide enough for a rear entry, especially as alleyways are a thing of the past, but it does seem that companies like Ryan go out of there way to make it look like a garage with a house attached.

Putting the garage in the rear is often not an option because there simply isn't enough room on the lot. You say to just make the lots a little bigger but many people wouldn't be able to afford the home then because the price of the land would drive up the home cost.

This to me sounds like a personal preference issue and shouldn't be posted on a website titled "pissed consumer" where it makes it appear as though the company referenced is providing a poor product.

It is just one that doesn't fit your arcitectural desires. "You can't please everyone"

the picture with the garage with flowers in fromt is most likely a model home where the office is. we have been in many of these homes and they have all been the same.. with the flowers in front of the garage door.

Ryan homes is a total joke. Do not bother trying to go through their mortgage company for incentives. NVR mortgage is an absolute mess. They never return phone calls and have no idea what they are even talking about half the time. There is always a new project manager....

NVR IS FULL OF ****...HOW DID THEY BUILD OUR HOME BEFORE WE WERE EVEN FINANCIALLY APPROVED? THEY ALSO TOLD US THAT OUR INTEREST RATE WAS GOING FROM 5.5% TO 5.8% AFTER THE WEEK WERE SUPPOSED TO CLOSE.

THEY ARE UNORGANIZED, NEVER COMMUNICATES ON A PERSONABLE LEVEL AND SIMPLY SIT AT THEIR DESK AND SEND ELECTRONIC EMAILS AND EXPECT YOU TO SIGN WITHOUT ANY EXPLANATION OF WHAT THEY'RE SENDING.

SO GLAD WE DECIDED TO BACK OUT...THEY CAN KEEP THE DEPOSIT! IT'S NOT WORTH THE HEADACHE
