Thank you for contacting the Real Estate Professionals here at TRULIA for your home buying question.
RYAN Homes communities are growing here in Central Florida. As other agents have mentioned, all builders and their contractors are regulated by standard building codes and regulations. Ryan is just as good as any other production home builder in the area.
There are many advantages of buying from a builder, including getting to pick all your optionsâ€¦.Also, most builders have great deals on their in house financing that other, outside lenders can not beat.
Please keep in mind that the Sales Agent works for the BUILDER. It costs you nothing extra to have a Buyers Agent work with you AND I have found that builders Sales Agents are very accommodating when dealing with us Buyers Agents, as they want us to continue bringing them buyers.
Lastly, I would recommend that you have a complete inspection done at your walk through. No, in most cases you wonâ€™t be able to delay the closing until any issues discovered are addressed, however you can document them right away, and have the builder start taking action on them right away.
I like working with buyers, either on existing homes, or new construction from a builder.
If I can help, please feel free to contact e directly firstname.lastname@example.org or 407-832-4650.
A lot of these big builders are public companies that sell thousands of homes/year. Construction is a complicated process and there is always a possibly that things might go wrong,.. That being said when you build 1000s of homes, even if the chances of having defects is 1/1000 you will always have bad reviews on your product.
Please keep in mind when dealing with a brand new home, you are much better off to use a Realtor. Generally speaking, whether you use a Realtor or not the price would be the same. The advantage of having a Realtor is you would have a professional representing you and giving professional advice, negotiate,â€¦. The builder's representatives almost always work for the builder and consequently have the best interest of their employer in mind which basically means you are not being represented.
Hope this helps and let me know if I can help you in any way as I deal with a lot of builders and sell a lot of brand new properties.

You pose a difficult question for realtors to answer. Antitrust law prevents us from discussing negative aspects of other companies in the real estate business that could cause harm to their business.
There have been recent news articles about the shortage of sub-contractor laborers here in Florida. This may or may not have an impact on the quality of work that is being performed. Many people are choosing to go with new construction. I am currently working with new construction buyers looking at another builder in Orlando.
All I can say is keep doing your research and go with what feels right to your instincts...it's your investment. :)
Hiring your own qualified building inspector is a good idea. If possible, have him watch each stage as it is built to make sure it is built to spec. Drywall hides a lot of mistakes.
