Our Ryan Home was built in 2005. We are ready to downsize and have the house under contract. Today, the septic test was scheduled. It FAILED!! We always made sure to have it serviced every year. It was explained to us today that whoever Ryan used as the contractor,...

We are a retired couple in NJ thinking of moving to a Ryan homes community in Delaware. We have seen a community in Bridgeville and will possibly visit Middletown/Smyrna area too. Can anyone from these areas tell us about their experience with Ryan? Reading these...

If you still intend on moving to Delaware, here are some tips that will be helpful. There are two electric companies that service Delaware.

One is Delaware Electric Coop and the other is Delmarva. Delmarva is way more expensive than DEC. You'll notice those communities as many homes will use solar panels. Try finding communities that use DEC.

Secondly, most communities heating systems in Delaware are supplied by propane instead of natural gas. Propane is very expensive so I recommend that you have a heat pump installed in your new home. It will cut down the propane use as electric, DEC is very cheap. My highest electric bill to date was 118 dollars.

Thirdly, water in Delaware is very expensive so I would suggest having a well dug for that water to be used for outside irrigation. You can easily get a 900 bill from watering your lawn for 3 months. A well costs 3000 dollars but you will get that back within a few years from not using your tap water. You will definitely miss the shopping stores that you have in New Jersey.

You have to drive to Maryland to go to a shopping Mall. One thing Delaware needs is better stores. If your cell phone carrier is Verdon or AT&T, your phone will operate fine. If you have TMOBILE , you will have to change carriers.

Make sure that the medical plan or Doctors that you use in New Jersey are also available in Delaware. As a GHI member in New York, I found that there were no GHI providers anywhere in Delaware. I had to go to either Maryland or New Jersey for the nearest Doctor. Beware of the many speed traps throughout the State.

The speed will go from 40 to 25 for a few blocks and the local police are waiting to tag you for speeding. I've never been tagged but they are there.

Ryan Homes Home Construction Review from Monroe Township, New Jersey

Ryan Homes built our townhouse neighborhood with very narrow streets. Parking is not allowed on the streets (to allow emergency vehicles to get through), and there aren't enough spots for all the residents (Ryan Homes counted everyone's garage as a parking space - good job, geniuses), and I can't have guests come over! We need expansion of and construction of side parking lots, and Ryan Homes refuses to accept responsibility and refuses to help us! Buyer beware!

Ryan homes suck.

Poor craftsmenship. Poor quality inside and out. Trim work sucks. I had to replace the windows when the house was only 7 years old. Now. I'm worried about the roof. The siding buckles in the heat. I would never recommend buying one of these homes. Plus way over priced ... I'm sure I missed some of the other *** work they did. I live in SPRING VALLEY DEVELOPMENT. 62 VANCE AVE. ID BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO SHOW YOU HOW BAD THEY BUILD A HOUSE. The air conditioer is to small for the house. I'm waiting for that to go and the heater already broke all within 10 years. Sorry *** builders.

Ryan Homes

The quality of my home is terrible. Every product in the home is bought to look good but reduce costs for them. The buyer is who pays in the long run. Their homes are well polished tirds. They install low quality windows, split jamb doors, cheap trim, highest upgrades to floors are of average grade, 24" centers on stud walls, and they have outside engineers approve plans that are suspect. They pay someone for an energy star inspection they brag about that any average builder would get and the sales pitch is good. Very nice employees but they are too young to understand the big picture of this ruthless national homebuilder. It is a bad decision to buy. I will never again.

:sigh My Ryan home is 5 years and 7 months old. The company that was supposed to come out and fix nail pops never did - they switched the policy on us. I notice a lot of plain old shoddy work. Walls that have been badly patched during construction (including a sheet of plywood sized patch in the living room ceiling), walls that aren't straight....

Our sump pump doesn't have a check valve (thought that was code?), and originally emptied out right against the foundation. Of course, it developed a crack that had to be repaired, and RH relocated the exit drain. Now, the entire line is sinking, and the exit flap is about an inch below ground level.

The tin roof over the bay window was never sealed at the overlaps, and when there is rain and wind too, it forces water in.

The siding is bowed, like they cut the piece too long and then tried to shove in into place anyway.

The windows are cheap, and the holes where the screen pins are supposed to go in don't line up. Most of the screens have been forced into place. If my HOA Nazies didn't require it, I'd remove them.

Sod was just dropped into place in the yard, the ground was never leveled or soil added below it. And so much waste! I watched them throwing away PALLETS of sod that were left over from other homes being built.

The back portion of my lot is some sort of environmentally protected area, we aren't supposed to build there or anything. But I had to clean an awful lot of builder trash out of there, and even this many years later, still have not gotten up all the broken glass from workers lunches. (I know this was why, as I witnessed them throwing their lunch trash into the yard while I was there measuring for blinds during construction)

My driveway developed a badly sunken spot, and they fixed that, but their equipment caused a mess in the lawn next to the driveway...and whatever they used to resod there is not the same grass as the rest of it. I have a patch of odd colored grass and burrs.

My AC and furnace can't keep up. We have had to keep the master bedroom door closed all the time to keep in the heat or cold. When the wind blows, the upstairs can be as much as 15 degrees hotter or cooler than the room the thermostat is in. We had someone from RH check this out, but he did not find a temperature difference. We used a thermal imager on our own and confirmed the temperature difference. Even with insulating and drywalling the garage, it doesn't help. I would guess the outer walls are not insulated, as the bonus room on the other end of the hall that also has two outside walls to it, is frigid or boiling as well.

After 14 months, the stairs to the basement started squeaking. It's only gotten worse.

The only reason I bought a Ryan Home was because they were the only ones with homes beng built at the time, that would be ready to move into when we neede to be out of the other place. I don't recommend them.

Realtors often get upset when the buyer goes ahead and purchases a newly constructed home without them. They don't want to miss out on the sales commission.

Instead of focusing on the task at hand, which is to sell the client's current home, they are bent out of shape because they feel they "missed out" on the commission of the new home.

Some realtors need to grow up and worry about the task at hand.

Im a Realtor and had a buyer venture into a R.H. on her own and ended up signing a contract.

Yeah, they sucked her in.

I fear that she has made a huge mistake and will understand in about 5 years when stuff starts to fall apart. :(

I just purchased a home that Ryan Homes built back in 2006. The concrete work out front is falling apart.

Ryan Homes blames the previous home owner stating they used d-icier. I investigated further to find out that Concrete experts as well as the ACI (American Concrete Institute) both say that the concrete used at my house was not entrained properly. Bad bad Ryan Homes for lying. Ryan Homes then calls me to tell me I dont know what I'm talking about and there is nothing they can do, jerks.

I asked why concrete sidewalks in my town (at least 30 years old) dont break up the way mine is? Onl;y explanation, Cant answre as to why the towns concrete isnt
