I helped some clients purchase a Brighton home in the Paramount subdivision last August. I check in with them regularly and they've been thrilled with it. At the time, it was a very competitively priced home, the fit and finish were great, and the layout was well planned. I thought their walkthrough process which included educating the buyer how to handle warranty issues, explaining the features and functions of the house and its systems, and addressing the buyer questions was well done.
I don't know anything in regards to their financial situation or their behavior in the other states. I do think it's an important question to ask any builder, especially in regards to custom built homes. A home buyer will want to feel secure in knowing that the builder has the financial ability to get them from start to finish. I would say part of the due diligence process should include conversations between buyer and builder, and if you've got representation buyer's agent and builder in regards to this.
Speculating online about such things can lead to misinformation. If you're contemplating purchasing a home from Brighton, or any builder in the valley for that matter, the integrity-based thing to do would be asking them directly to address concerns about information received or uncovered. If itâ€™s something youâ€™re not comfortable doing, get your agent to do it; theyâ€™re paid to represent your best interest.
