Do not buy a house from them
Once you sign the contract it's as if they are doing you a favor by building a house for you. Very disorganized
Hired an attorney

I got duped and I am approaching a Attorney. We lost the happiness of buying a new home.
My wife had tears the way they misguided us.

Double check what they agreed to you verbally and put forth on papers. Be cautious while signing any agreement papers.

We tried to buy from them but Erika would never get back to us after calls and even stopping in she always had an excuse of why she couldn't give us a price on the lot we wanted. It was like she didn't want to sell to us. We had enough and found a great builder with Capital Construction and are so happy we didn't go with Healy.

I purchased one and I am disappointed in the craftmanship and also the services. They are building still in my area and they damaged my property and they still have not come over to fix it. They never even came over to apologize until I confronted them on the issue. The foreman was rude and I even called the company 4 times. Everytime I called, they acted like they never heard about the damage.

I recently purchased a Healy Home in Carriage Club that was built in 2009. I few things to consider that Jack Healy doesn't include in brand new construction:

You will definitely need gutters, water softener, and landscaping. The water is hard water-- it's a community well even though you pay the County for water/sewer. Most big builders say you don't need gutters but if you don't want water in your basement or your landscaping swept away you will want them.

Other than watching out for those items which you will need with any new construction the neighborhood in Carriage Club is great and if you have young children they would be part of Hardy Elementary. If you have anymore questions about the builder or other developments just shoot me an email or text.

He hires the cheapest people he can to help build his homes. Don't know how this guy sleeps at night. Our house is falling apart around us.

So this is the first thing that comes up if you Google "Healy Homes reviews" and aside from the ONE (!!?!) person who liked their experience and the typical client-chasing from the realtors these are abysmal.
The lack of response from Healy Homes really illustrates some people's concerns about their customer service.
This company, who claims that it "specializes in building premium high end homes with superior quality and friendly helpful service" (copied & pasted from their website), doesn't seem to be so acommodating for its home buyers. From what I've read, the home warranty is good for a year, and the customer feedback makes it sound like they got a house built to last 12 months.

I did and i am very happy with the home. The quality is great, and i was able to get exactly what I wanted kn the house. I should say that my house is very custom with many changes including circular staircase. I am very pleased. I just moved in a month ago.. Sincerely, Mark Krysiak

Hi Lisa,

We've worked with Healy Homes on several occasions and have found they build a beautiful home. As you'll likely find with any builder, some homeowners are going to come away from the experience with praise for the builder and others will come away disappointed. From our experience, most issues can be resolved during the building process. As several other Realtors have pointed out in this forum, working with an agent experienced in the new home construction process can often be the difference in a positive or negative experience.

We would be happy to listen to any concerns you might have about the process and discuss - please don't hesitate to contact us!

All the best,

Has anyone else had issues with Healy during construction?

When buying new construction you will want to make sure you have a qualified Agent to represent you. An agent that sells new construction will know what "extras" are and are not included. These extra can add 30K+ to a sales price.
