We're new to the Dallas area and just starting to scout for houses.
I don't know if this question is allowed, but are there any notoriously bad builders to avoid?
And what about bad build years? For example, in the city we moved from, we knew to avoid houses built during the 2005-2010 time frame because builders used extreme cost-cutting measures due to the economy.

She definitely needs a good local RE agent who knows builders.

all she has to do is run a search for home construction or new homes and she will get some info
and run a Google search and see which ones have national rep for being bad

but yes--definitely needs good local RE agent because a SALESPERSON from any home builder is nothing but that--someone interested in selling a home to get a commission...could care less if it is a good home for the buyer...
