Can It Get Any Worse?


We have run into one problem after another throughout this process.  Either, we have been very unlucky or these problems are occurring across the board to everyone.  I just cannot imagine that anyone has experienced the number of problems that we have. 

When I started this blog, we had already been dealing with Ryan Homes for 3 months.  I did not even go into those 3 months, because I was trying to get off to a fresh start and move forward.  When I get the energy to blog about the unacceptable problems that we have been dealing with (especially the one today that might cause this entire deal to fall through), I will.  In the meantime, let's just say that my husband and I are two very dissatisfied customers.   This is our 3rd home purchase and I am a realtor and I have never experienced this number of problems with a home sale.  I do have to say that my sales rep is a pleasure to work with and she has tried her best to keep me positive throughout this process, but my patience and nerves are wearing very thin.

  3. You are welcome Maria! This is actually Nadase (wife) and Rick (husband). Smile. He may decide to join the blog one day. I remain optimistic and we get to keep each other encouraged because it can be very stressful. We are in a similar position. We have been working with the underwriters for four months and have yet to receive our loan approval. I am confident this will be the week. Some of the things they have asked us to do could have been done back in February. In the meantime, we are choosing to NOT GIVE UP!

  4. There can be a few bad apples in the basket that will leave a bad taste in your mouth. If you can make it though those then the better things are to come after that.

    Keep records of everything too, even notes about phone conversations, so you can have more solid footing when working with them.

  5. I'm sorry that you are dealing with so many issues. If this house is really what you want, then fight for it. If not, I know there was another blogger who was set to build the year before they did and decided to walk away. Whatever you decide, I wish you the best!

  6. You should blog it. Two reasons. 1-by doing so will document with time and date for records. and B-you may help other bloggers understand the pitfalls that may come.
    Good luck.

    1. I agree! The point of the blogs are to be open and honest. Record the good and bad.

      That said, I'm so sorry to hear you are having so many issues. *hugs*

  7. I agree. You should definitely blog about it. Could be cathartic as well.

    Sorry you've had so many problems. I can understand how frustrating that can be with something you really want (and are paying for). We were on hold for awhile waiting for the sale of our current home so we could move forward with RH. It was very nerve-wracking to think that we were going to lose the lot we wanted or not be able to do the house at all. But I kept reminding myself to find perspective. At the end of the day, what's meant to be will happen, and it's just a house. Your family is so much more than the walls that surround it.

  8. I agree. It would be unfair to future builders if we just told the good or the bad. I think everyone should expect some problems, stress - whatever you want to call it - along the way. If it is way more than what is acceptable, I would take it as a sign.

    Don't get me wrong, we got plenty of answers we did not like to questions or even issues we had during building.

    Weigh it out in your mind. You already know what is best for your family.

    1. Hi WJ, Yes, things are better. I need to write a post explaining what happened. Magically, Ryan Homes was able to get on the ball and get things started. They cleared a few trees and dug a little yesterday. I'll be sure to get my post up this week. Thanks for checking in!
