Hi All-
Been looking at houses in Bucks/Montgomery Counties for a while and not finding anything we like. We see a lot of nice homes built by David Cutler, but I have heard some negative things re: this builder. Anyone have any insight on this topic?

I have about three friends who's families bought David Cutler homes and almost immediately began having issues, some bigger than others. These homes were being built so quickly and now that the boom is over they are sitting and offering great deals, but ... I have a good friend who's a renowned architect and he always told me, never buy anything younger than 10 years and as for the DC homes, well, it's a lot of money spent to have issues like things falling off your house, walls flaking, etc... I'm sure they are not ALL like that though.

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.
DO NOT BUY DAVID CUTLER.

We almost bought one in 1990. They told us we could have stone on the exterior of the house, then 3 weeks after we put our deposit down, they told us that they could only do brick. "Stone" was on the contract, yet they told us "too bad" when we said the only reason we chose that house was because they told us it would be finished in stone.

They would not give us our deposit back, so we had to sue them. They have shark lawyers, but luckily we knew someone who could help 'behind the scenes' so we received a settlement (only part of our intial deposit, better than zero).

DO NOT BUY CUTLER ~ nasty company to deal with.

I grew up in one. Seemed OK to me. I don't remember my parents having major issues.
