I am in process of purchasing a home in Bartram Springs. While I liked the house and overall community features..
I came across this link below :

https://www.firstcoastnews.com/mobil...g/77-123507383

It seems like there were several homes were impacted and there were repairs, settlement done by builder with home owners.

And I am now concerned on over quality of the houses in the community.
Article is bit old and but if there were issues in the past then it might be popping up now/more that houses are about 15 years old for more homes...

Looking for honest opinion and experience from current, past resident and /or real estate agent on this.

For the longest time, you could drive through Bartram Springs and see LOTS of houses getting repairs done. While I can't speak to EVERY home in there, after 10-14 years, I'd guess that most of the underlying problems have come to light and have been dealt with. It's a nice community and I know a lot of people who live there. I manage several rental properties in there, as well. GET A HOME INSPECTION. Even better, find a stucco company to have a closer look at the typical suspect areas. You could even do a permit search for prior jobs that were done on a particular property, to see more details about work done (assuming it was permitted to begin with).

Thanks EricBoyd for quick response. While I don’t know how to pull permit reports... I went to coj.net and looked at property report for specific property I am interested...I saw that in 2015 some stucco repairs were done worth 47k...
I am guessing this may be part of builder settlement at that time..

This is why when looking at builders, if they only give me the option of stucco, I am not interested. I feel much more confident with Hardie board.
