My Fiance and I are planning on building a home in the very near future and are very torn between what we have heard about some of the post in regards to the negative response with Ryan Homes. Is there someone out there that has had a positive experience that would be able to assist us in making the decision? We are looking at the NAPLES model and it would really help if someone could give any insight good or bad with dealing with Ryan Homes. thanks so much

Why build when there are so many DEALS out there at 50% the cost of building..

Save the money , All the builders now are hurting, So expect shoddy work cause as the Old saying Goes ,, ''You get what you pay for '' .. Most Builders Sub out everything to the lowest bidder

What Riverside4ever suggests is your best bet...there are some awesome deals out there if your willing to do the hunting which won't require much effort on your part...they're out there and the cash you save can be used to customize the home to your liking and you'll still come out ahead!!

I have to disagree. I know a great builder, modular, if you are interested. I had my modular built with them and they also added a four season room stick built and I love my home. When I built in 2008 it cost more than it does now, but not because of shoddy work, its because of the economy!! If you want information about the builder please PM me and I will give you all the information you need.

ANY new house you build today Modular or stick built will be worth a whole lot less then what you pay for it. Within 1 day of you moving in

Disagree all you want .. Its a FACT ...

How can someone disagree with logic?? There are tons of homes being offered for sale on the market right now that were once worth 50% or more the asking price now...so how is that a bad deal?? I guess some people still have money to burn even in a real estate buyer's market!!

it might not make financial sense to build right now but some people just want to build their own house and there's nothing wrong with that. they want it to be their "dream" home and they want it just perfect the way they design it. i can't knock that. i've heard of Ryan Homes down here in berks, and montgomery counties. i haven't heard anything bad in fact i like their homes.

Default Ryan Homes

I am also building a Ryan home currently and agree with the building of your dream home. I looked at a few houses and I built mine for the same price as the few I looked at except I got to pick EVERYTHING I wanted in my home compared to moving into what someone else picked! My brother has a Ryan home and loves it and said it was a great experience! Good Luck!!! I am building a Victoria Falls.

It's actually a great time to build. The cost of materials is down (because demand is down and supplies are high.) Builders don't have a lot of work; they will concentrate on your construction instead of running between projects and subbing out large chunks of the job. I built a home last year and did it for about 15% less than a friend who built a very comparable home a couple of years earlier. My builder did a beautiful, problem-free job that was finished ahead of schedule and on budget. No right or wrong here....buying an existing home certainly has its advantages...but I'm happy I built one.
