My wife and I built two Ryan homes. This company is now part of Heartland. Two daughters built with Heartland and another daughter built a Ryan. We are experienced with these companies. Up till now very satisfied. HOWEVER son is in the process of building an expensive Heartland and it is nothing short of disastrous. Foundation walls broken and cracked and repaired, roof leaking, hurricane bolts not installed properly, beer cans found stuffed in basement drains, when lumber was delivered it was crashed into hillside, steps twisted, I-beam support shims improper and covered with insulation spray. I could go on but you get the picture. I could go on. For peace of mind my son and pregnant wife had to hire structural engineer and home inspector at a cost of $1,000.00. The house isn't finished but has been a nightmare up to this point. I'm writing a letter to the President of the company. If you use Heartland you MUST be there every day to check on their independent contractors. If you don't know what to look for hire someone!!! This house could have been built better by first year trade school boys!!!! ... more

Benny Smith answered:
NO, In fact the lenders can no more base your approval on age than they can race or sex. Have you found a lender that you are happy with. I am happy to help you with getting to where you need to be. I live and work in Allegheny and Washington counties, if you want some local assistance. Best of luck.

Coraopolis is an old community of stately Victorian brick houses that sits along the Ohio River. Many have been renovated into apartments but many still are single family homes. It is a walking community with a good library, yoga studio, great local restaurants and a neighborhood grocery store. You can bike or drive to the Montour Trail, which spans miles and miles of converted railroad lines for hikers, bikers and walkers. The school district is financially strapped, if you have school aged kids. It's a mix of old families and younger people looking for rentals.

We loved living there for five years, walked everywhere, walked our dogs and felt safe. Most parking is on-street. Best of luck.

Virginia Stump answered:
Projecting what will happen in the market over the next five years is truly a guess, but here is mine: As the economy improves, I expect housing values to trend higher, just like the stock market is doing. From January 2011 to January 2012, the overall SW PA market appreciated 5.07%, then appreciation dipped slightly in February. I expect the warmer than usual winter and spring will bring buyers out in droves, since the bank lending rates are "on sale". Right now, it is a better deal to buy than rent. Those lending rates will probably also start to go up slowly, so now is a really good time to buy. I'll go out on a limb and project that housing values in the greater Pittsburgh region will be at least 10-15% higher in 5 years than they are now. ... more
