Honest reviews and recommendations. Got it. Honestly, Texas is a market unto it's own. Every builder has strengths and weaknesses. As Realtors, we are aware of these components. Texas has extremely hard rock in which many developments are built on. The key to success for any builder that I can relate personal experiences with is how they handle issues after the home is built.
Realtors are not authorized to sway you toward or away from a neighborhood or particular builder but we can answer your questions based on experience once a fiduciary relationship is established. This relationship is created by the home buyer and Realtor together acknowledging the terms of a "Buyer's Representation Agreement". At this point not only are we "authorized" we are "required" to share our experience with you and answer your questions based on facts and not opinions.
I lived in ABQ as well. Your weather conditions are much more extreme than Texas - ABQ is high elevation where as DFW is 131 miles above sea level.
Where "excellence" is a concern, I must advise you, every Builder will have negative comments. Every development has a named company that builds the homes as well as specific person responsible for project management. I have had MUCH success in several neighborhoods and at the end of the day, what makes the difference in my opinion, is the level of "hands on" the Project Manager involves himself and/or if the Builder is knocking out homes in a cookie cutter manner.
New home builds are my area of expertise.."pre-owned" homes are adequately priced in the North Fort Worth. Alliance Corridor area. However, a new build home means (obviously) it has never been lived in, you can choose the colors, upgrades, and personalize your home with a Builder's warranty. Builders also pay at bare minimum, the owner's title policy.
I am your new home builder specialist. Feel free to reach out to me.
I appreciate a client that performs due diligence prior to making decisions. An informed buyer is much more comfortable for me to work with as you are aware of the pros and cons of this industry,
I would enjoy hearing from you.
