Dear Blue Bell Home Buyer,
Your first step should be to carefully review the seller disclosure. If the home has an EIFS exterior you should consult with a licensed EIFS inspector who will examine the home you are considering. EIFS, when applied properly, and carefully maintained and inspected on a regular basis, can be fine. And, in fact, its insulating properties can save energy consumption over the long haul. In the development you mentioned there were problems, some of which may have been remediated by the builder. Only a licensed inspector can determine this for you and report back to you on the condition of the specific home you'd like to purchase. if you'd like any more input, I'd be happy to provide it. Best of luck with your house hunting.

Hello 12345678,

Some stucco surfaces are actualy EIFS which decays and causes moisture penetration. Many of the homes have had this issue corrected in this subdivision. You need to review the seller's disclosure carefully and ask you buyer agent to obtain as much info as possible for you.

Many homeowners were part of a lawsuit against Builder. Builder offered compensation and many homes in that development were entire redone on exterior. Seller's disclosure from Owner should provide data as to that particular dwelling.
