I have a similar concern and less than stellar experience with Bohland homes in Wayzata, MN. The property will be finished in a couple of weeks and I'm hoping for an upside surprise with the actual construction, but the process of getting there was the most difficult builder experience I've had in 25 years of selling real estate. We are building out a condo for a price well in excess of $1M and the allowances they have given appear to have been designed for base line bare bones property. We were sent all over the Twin Cities to make selections at 14 different vendors, (keep in mind that this property is designed for seniors), only to find that we were expected to make selections with no pricing information from most of the vendors who were apparently told they were not to make quotations to the customer. Over the course of several months, some pricing trickled in, but most if it arrived about 30 days prior to closing and contained errors and surprises tens of thousands of dollars over the allowances in some cases, despite the buyers being very careful to ask to be shown selections that were near the allowance. All in all, the process has been very chaotic and not at all what you would expect in a luxury home buying experience. Sorry for the vent, but needed to get this off my chest.
