I find the comments on this site interesting. First off, I have a Ryland home that I had built in 2000. A lot of these comments are from people who seem to have not cared enough to do a walk around BEFORE closing, let alone during the construction. With all big box home builders they will get away with whatever you let them. I had cracked tile that they replaced. I had 3 rooms of carpet and baseboards replaced because they forgot to tighten a bath tub drain. I have been in there 17 years next month and I along with my neighbors have been greatly satisfied. ... more

Yes after searching for 5 years, finally we have bought custom home and is from them. You may reach me for more details. They are top notch builders for custom home. The design architecture engineering and functionality of all their homes they built in East Cobb is outstanding and hard to find similar team!! We are very proud of our architect and builder and we get so many compliments all the time. All in all they treat us as family and not just clients and did a lot more extra work while building our home!! They always give right guidance on design and will never compromise to anything if it doesn't make sense or not good for house value !! We may be ready to build another dream home in next few years and we will be working with this team !! ... more

This is a great question, and no you should not avoid stucco homes. I am a certified stucco inspector and tester. I see stucco homes every day, and stucco is a cladding that can have a much longer life than products like siding. The thing to know, is that the stucco needs some maintenance. If the stucco is well maintained it will last and not have issues. I would say though, that you should not buy a stucco house without stucco inspection and testing.

Generally, what I see with stucco inspections, is that if the stucco has not been maintained for a long time, problems can occur. The problems tend to be with failure of the substrate and framing rotting, and are not generally identifiable with just a visual inspection. These problems can be very expensive. The good news for you is that typically its an item that once identified, is paid for by the seller. In some cases buyers end up with a brand new exterior of the home, courtesy of the seller.

SO in summary, as long as you get a stucco inspection, and stucco test then problems with stucco homes won't be able to affect your wallet.

It's best to check with your accountant. However, in talking with my mortgage people, they said PMI is currently still a deductible expense on your taxes.

As a rental, I think it will go right away. People want to be in those North Fulton County schools and inventory is tight right now. It might even go fairly quickly as a sale, provided the road noise can't be heard inside. ... more

Hi Brian! Congratulations on your move! Alpharetta is a amazing, kid friendly suburb. There are several subdivisions in Alpharetta in your desired price range it really just depends on what exit you were trying to move to. I am also assuming Schools are very important for you. You may want to start looking up the schools and their ratings and go from there. A great site is It will provide testing scores, demographics, and reviews. Please let me know if I can assist further.

Solomon Greene answered:

The purchase and sale agreement, then your agent would be the best source for answers to these questions. If you approached the seller or their agent unrepresented, please consider contacting an attorney. Any responses to your question posted here would essentially be conjecture since we were not involved in the transaction, haven't seen the contract and, frankly, are not licensed to provide legal opinions.

We really like our home. However, the warranty and customer service provided after the sale are very bad. So much so, given the opportunity to purchase another SR Home I would not.
