I currently live in Hall Station in Bowie (Mitchelvill MD). I've been in my house for under 2 years and here is a list of items that fail..
Steps creek (spelling) when I walk on them and I feel like i'll fall in.
Walls still show where they didn't smooth out the edges
Corking is HORRIBLE
Appliances are failing (Stove, Fridge, Microwave, Dishwasher)
Hard wood floors aren't tight (See cracks between each plank)
Grass in backyard is non existent and they say it's because my deck is up its not getting sun
If Ryan was the last builder I would not purchase and live on the street. If you do decide to purchase a home from Ryan, YOU BETTER VIDEO TAPE EVERYTHING that's being done on your house... I recently got an inspector to come out to the house and he said he couldn't come out and do it in his regular 4 hours because he ALWAYS has issues with RYAN homes (TERRIBLE)... Make sure you get an inspector BEFORE you move in or you will be sorry. I will be selling this *** soon.
Monetary Loss: $15000.
