Bought a home in Gulf Shores Jan 2014. Haven't been able use the master bath to bathe in since due to the shoddy construction and tub leaks. Have a mold farm growing out of the floor in the master bedroom next to my bed from the tub leak. I'm allergic to mold so I can't sleep in that room anymore. Contacted D.R. Horton's non existent warranty service center by fax requesting help. I've been COMPLETLY ignored as have the other problems I've sent them. Not even a call to offer an air purifier from Horton. They left insulation out of the walls during construction and I had to make them put it in. I have a shingle blown off my roof from your everyday wind here on the coast. Not even one nail in it I can see and plans call for 6. A yard full of dead sod they improperly installed and other things the show their complete lack of concern for any type of quality work. To make it worse they just ignore you if there are problems with the crappy work they did building the house. If you buy a Horton house you're a fool!!! Ask the other owners in my neighborhood.... more
This is the sort of thing that you can write into a contract as something the seller must agree to do before closing or to give you a credit at closing based on a written quote so you can take care of it after closing. However, depending on the type of loan and how picky the lender wants to be, I always recommend making sure it is done ahead of closing so the lender and you both know it's done.

We have a nice 2 bedroom 2 bath home for rent in Fairhope at 109 Spring Park Drive. The master bath has a walk in shower and there is a nice screen room in the back. All appliances are included, even a washer and dryer!
I agree with Jennifer - this question might be better in a survey. My team partner and I offer the services of a stager in our listing presentation; if the house and the owner appear to need it, we recommend it.... more
I am not personally familiar with that particular builder however, II always encourage clients to check with the Alabama building commission. They have information about each builder and you can also find out if there have been any complaints against particular builders in the past and if they've been resolved satisfactorily. The Better Business Bureau is also a great resource for consumers.... more
Why not buy a house with land & just put one in? There's a nice big house listed at 14073 State Highway 181, sitting on 10 acres with a barn in back giving plenty of land to put in a pool! The house is brick - all one level with 4+ bedrooms 3 & 1 half baths with lots & lots of extras. The master suite is to dye for & has a walk in closet the size of a nursery! The house price is unusually low for the value! That home would be twice as much money anywhere else in the US!... more
The Alabama Redemption Law is possibly the most misunderstood law in Alabama. Foreclosed properties or property bought on the courthouse steps can be an exellent investment with downsides that can be minimized by prior research. The fear of redemption is grossly exagerated. Out of 1118 foreclosure deeds issued in 2010, there were NO redemption deeds issued on these properties that I could find. If you would like a detailed explanation of why foreclosures can be an excellent investment vehicle, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 251 591 2568. I'm not an attorney, but I do understand foreclosures.
