Hi All, we are looking to build a new home in greater dover area... and are looking at 3 builders (Mainly because they are the only builders offering townhome)

Right now we are looking at clearview meadows (PCS Home) and Eden Hills (Ryan Homes). Ryan home seems to be offering a bit more competititve pricing but the development community is right next to Kraft factory.
Anyone familiar with PCS Home or Ryan homes in the area? Any info would be appreciated!!!

Our house was built by Ashburn. While we like our home, Ashburn was not easy to deal with --- we eventually gave up on a pretty major issue, which is probably what he wanted. (During the walk-through on the day of settlement, there were many, many things that were not complete -- the son just kept saying "we'll handle that, we'll get to that, etc." but we had nothing in writing.....needless to say, many of these things never got done). A friend of ours purchased a Ryan home and has nothing but great things to say about their purchase. I think Eden Hill is going to be a great place to live once it's complete.

we purchased a ryan home, we allso looked at pcs and ashburn. theyve been pretty good at taking care of the few problems we've had so far. the only thing with eden hill is go look at the "neighborhood" there is only one row of houses built, and its been like that for almost a year now (unless something has changed within the last month.) to me it would seem weird to live in a townhouse with one row in the middle of nowhere. check it out for yourself.

Default Ryan Homes.

I currently have a home built by Ryan. I wouldn't recommend them to my worst enemy.

Default Ryan Homes

Militarymum, What was wrong with your Ryan home. I was looking at them for a home in Willowwood, a 55+ community. Thanks, Frank44

I live in a Ryan home in Glasgow - they have been good with any issues that we have had with the house.
Overall build quality is average and I still find little things here and there not done perfectly 7 years later.

One word of caution, do your research about the land use plans around the neighborhood. The salesman lied through his teeth to sell the houses about the land use around the neighborhood. Fortunately, the internet has so much more information now than it did 7-8 yrs ago and you can see who owns what land, what it is zoned for or see planned road projects.
Our neighborhood borders on state Del-DOT owned land originally planned as the on-ramps for the 301 extended to I-95 (the missing exit #2). Also, there was commercial zone behind the neighborhood that could have been home to a massive office park - would not have been fun in the morning getting out or the evening getting in.
Thankfully, it looks like 301 will not be routed here and the commercial land was acquired for the YMCA, the state police troop 2 and Canal Little League's new fields. We got lucky...but if I had been able to research the area, I would NOT have bought my house...

Even in different neighborhoods with higher-end builders, they didn't disclose until asked about apartments planned in the community - ask the questions and have them noted and documented by the builder with recourse if it isn't correct - exactly what that would be is up to you. They will balk but the time to make house sales is now if ever...

What happened to Eden Hills? I just called a sales rep. The project is now 3 years in: 77 units sold but saled for 650. So that's 25/year to date.
