builder discounts. After the neighborhood is finished, resale value will begin to grow kind of like their landscaping. Two: Are you thinking Pulte offers a better home? Davis? What are you comparing
these builders to? Sandstone Lakes (Ryland) is appreciating - even those homes without basements. Three: I find neighborhoods under the $150k buy in threshold suffer most from foreclosure. There seems
to be a shake out period from 3 - 8 yrs after buildout is finished before the glut of foreclosures end and the neighborhood can begin to appreciate. Off subject/but related - I am pro anything that helps bring jobs to the greater Indy area. Well, that's my four cents. If you want to talk further, Mike, give me a call. 513.4652. email@example.com

We were shopping in the area builders in Fishers, and trapped into Ryland's "quality" trap thinking they provide better quality as their comparable home is approx. 40-50 thousand expensive than their competitors.
You'll be surprized if I tell you they no better than any cheap builder. The sidings started meted from one side. They said it was because of the neighbor's windows reflection, not because of low quality materials. The outside color was entirely different than what we asked them. The water stoppers in the sink (look like made of stainless steel) have lost their crome. The garage door have been attempted many times to fix but still we need to standby it otherwise it opens back when half way through. They seeded the backyard AFTER the closing, when the weather was already freezing, saying if the grass didn't come properly they will re-seed it in spring, and also put more dirt to grade the yard.In spring, they responded they won't do it as they do it only once which has already been done.
The upgraded granite counter tops in bathrooms (for which we paid a lot of money) get water stains right after you use them. Ryland's supervisor (Cameron???) visited to see, and said he was but he cannot do anything about it.
The arch above the main entrance shivers and makes sounds when you close the door or when there is windy weather.
If there is something that can be fixed/adjusted with some makeup, they will fix it. If it takes them to replace, or in other words, where they see fixing will be expensive, they will simply deny. ---- That's the Ryland Homes normal practice.
And, yes, I am talking about Tanglewood community in Fishers.
If I buy another home, I'll buy from Centex or any other cheaper builder who stands behind their work, and save 40-50 thousand in the price for the same home.
