Does anyone know what is going on in these subdivisions?

I live in one & they have uprooted all of the signs that say "Landview" even the homes that are still for sale. Additionally, I e-mailed our contact about a week ago regarding our punch list, but have not received any response.

lala,

Unfortunately, we've seen a lot of companies close shop in the last 6 months because they haven't been able to make ends meat. I checked all listings for Landview, with the 3 different agents they have listed, and apparently all listings are either expired, withdrawn, or closed, meaning I could not find any active lisitngs. This may or may not mean they are still operating. They are still listed as an active company for what its worth. I left a message on their business machine after several calls, so will see if I can get a response and will let you know if I run across any good contact numbers for you.

From here, if you still have punchlist concerns, you can go a few different routes. You can contact Helen Carter at the Knoxville Assoc. of Realtors, at 584-8647 ext. 6. However, I did speak with her about this and she had no idea or news of them closing shop. Your best bet is going to be to contact Katherine Lewis, at the Knoxville Home Builders Assoc. Her contact number is 546-4665. Both names listed are public numbers, and the public and professional contact for inquiries regarding our business field. If they have closed their realty office, but still operating as a builder, she'll inform you. Also, she may have news of their current state of affairs. In any case, best of luck and let me know if I can be any more help to you in tracking something down.

Ditto, as Williamsold has said, good luck, and I have worked closely a couple times with sells in there, and I will check with the onsite agent and get you the real skinny.

Hey Lala.miimi12, I have checked and talked to one of the active agents, and yes they did close down the Real estate side, and the one I talked with, took all the remaining listings with her, to another company. Landview Const, is still going, and plans on building more, when times are somewhat better. As far as you needing work done, they still have a great repair person, in fact, I have used John, and he is great, but I understand he is busy and backed up. So do not give up, and they will honor your request and get your punch list handled. I will send you a dm, once I have his number.

Default Do your homework!

As a resident of one of the Landview communities in the Knoxville area, I urge you to talk to the people living in the community you are interested in. Ask them about the quality of construction, the responsiveness to your concerns, and the general upkeep and conditions of the community (this should be obvious in a drive-by) in general. Construction debris with no active construction, trash, overgrown lots, etc. could be a warning sign.

If you decide to purchase, HOLD money in an escrow for MAJOR work that needs to be done after settlement so they have a reason to work WITH you to ensure YOUR satisfaction. Or if possible, delay your settlement until everything is completed as promised.

And ALWAYS rely on an expert to look out for YOUR best interests. Use a buyer's broker (don't rely on the salesperson to look out for you), insist on a home inspection (even if new construction) and always, always, always do lots of research before you make what could be the largest purchase in your lifetime.

Landview offers a nice product for the price but you have to be an active player in the home-buying process!
