Original review: May 26, 2023

Beware!!! My husband and I loved a house that was listed for $355k and while under contract the company said the house is actually $360k due to the lot premium. Keep in mind the $355k included a $5k lot premium which Adams was trying to get an additional $5k so $10k for a lot. Only 2 square foot bigger. After much thinking my husband and I agreed. Meanwhile we have the appraisal of the house completed which was $344k. Adams Homes homes didn’t even want to negotiate on this. It’s was either take the $360k or we let you go. It’s ironic because it was their lender we used for the appraisal. We decided to let the house go. We’re not about to be $16k of negative equity for anybody even though we were putting a sizeable downpayment down.

The lies they tell. I was told to use their lender and no closing cost. My closing cost was almost $11k. $7k was added in that I didn’t see before. I have a email where it should’ve been included at no cost. The one hired to oversee the construction was a novice from a sales role and should have not been building homes. SO much still wrong, they are full of excuses.

The model we were shown we were told is the standard for our home (lies). We do not have a lot that was promised. Floors so loud, sound like a horse is walking upstairs. Flooring man said it’s the subflooring, they have not been back. Weak spots feel like you will sink in, they said it’s not deep enough to be considered faulty. Just trifling. Even had the nerve to say, "Your home better than mine. You should be grateful." I paid for this and should be happy in it. Contracted Feb 2020, Closed April 2021. Had to separate my family and live with others for 7 months all for a faulty home, lying superintendent, lying management, lying sales team. They have no morals. Don’t let build your dog's house. I wouldn’t have given one star but had no choice. I pray God have mercy on their lying souls.

    I purchased my brand new home May 24,2021. By October 2021 I started noticing cracks in foundation of the garage. By December the entire floor is covered in cracks. Now cracks run through the entire house that is tile out onto the patio. The only thing they offered to to was put epoxy on it but not fix the cracks. We have been fighting about the issue for almost a year. They hired a 3rd party who said Adams Homes needs to fix the issue. That was in June 2022. I have not heard from them since.

    Dean ** from Adams Homes has been to my home twice once in February when I showed up in person to the office in Venice Florida because after several appointments that he failed to show up to I decided to go confront them in person. He came, said, "No wonder your mad look at all the cracks," then turned around and responded to my BBB complaint that there was no evidence of cracks. These are some real idiots. Then in June Dean along with Jason ** from Maverick warranties and insurance come and look. I received a letter from Jason on June 17, 2022 stating that Adams Homes is responsible for the fix. Yet not a word. The cracks have not stopped. There are more. Adams Homes is one of the worst builders I have seen. They do not care about the people who have spent a fortune on their homes and the problems we are having. I guess next step is finding a lawyer.

    !!!!BUYER BEWARE!!!! We purchased a brand new 2330 sq ft home from Adams Homes for $300k on September 30th, 2021. Sometime during the process of the home being built their contractors crushed the drain line of our septic system which eventually led to flooding in our home. The first flood happened on April 26th, 2022 in the middle of the night and Adams Warranty Dept was contacted asap. They sent out a plumber who told us it was a septic issue and they would report back to Adams. We heard nothing further. Our home flooded again in May and again they sent a plumber who said the issue was the septic but we again heard nothing further from Adams.

    The last time our home flooded was May 25th and FINALLY Adams sent out the Septic company (Brian Davis Septic) and we watched as they dug up our yard to inspect the septic. That is when we were told the drain line was crushed and needed to be replaced. It was several more weeks before that happened and we only found out it had been done by repeatedly calling Brian Davis Septic. The Superintendent came out to our home and told us that the damage should be fixed and after weeks and weeks of phone calls made by us (my fiancé and I) we still had no answers. Finally Jason in the warranty dept reached out and came out to our home on Friday, July 1st and told us they *might* fix *some* of the damage!!! He told us he would call on Tuesday, July 5th with answers but didn't.

    Every time we call we reach Lisa or Michelle and are told Jason is out of the office or in a meeting and will call us back with answers but he never does. It has been THREE MONTHS and nothing has been done to fix our home! We are FED UP! We just want our home fixed so our family of 6 including 4 young children (ages 11 to 1 year old) do not have to live in a house torn apart, missing flooring and baseboards, with water damaged cabinets, doors, trim and furniture. We want answers and we want our home back!!! The home we JUST BOUGHT less than a year ago for $300,000! We want it back the way it was before it was destroyed due to your company's shoddy work and negligence. Since going public I have heard numerous horror stories of the same nature about Adams Homes! DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE TREATED THIS WAY!!!

    Signed contract in October 2020, was told would take 7-9 months with a max of 12 months to build house. Selected a “preferred” lender (if selected we didn’t have closing costs). 18 months it took of lies, being strong armed by the lender who was unethical. The Lender and Adams Homes lie in the same bed..they didn’t offer any first responder financing, they made it so we didn’t qualify for certain low interest financing or programs we did qualify for when we first signed, they constantly threatened us with failed financing if I didn’t sell my existing home that my husband's name wasn’t on.

    Guessing Adams homes pissed off the lender who basically told us that he was sick of Adams Homes and that our home was worth more than we purchased for and that the build was purposely slowed down as a tactic to get us to cancel the contract so it could be sold for more money (we were too far in for Adams to ask for more money like they are doing to people now).

    We watched houses being worked on that signed contracts after us and their permits went in after us. (Public records don’t lie.) Paint is a hot mess, went in with a marble and found hollow spots in tile floor, back patio concrete is cracked and was told “there are 2 types of concrete..cracked and ones that haven’t cracked yet”, dead grass with weeds (after 2 months we are still trying to get dead parts to grow), 1 closet door was installed backwards and you can’t open it all the way (swings in not out) gaps between the floor and wall (was told nothing can be done about it), sloppy grout and caulking), carpet is already pulling up where it meets the tile, water spout already had to be replaced due to breaking on first use.

    Horrible..horrible..horrible experience. You see all these photos of people with the house pic and welcome gifts…we got none of that..all we got was “here’s your keys” (and they didn’t open all the doors..had to call them to do that too). If we had listened to Adams Homes and their preferred finance company, we would have been homeless for 6 months.

    Do not sign with their “Preferred Lenders”, do not buy down your rate..lender sold off our mortgage before the 1st payment was due because I told them no to buying rate down. Wish we went with another builder and found our own finance company. The only good experience we’ve had was with Lance (Superintendent) who took over the gory mess of this build in Royal Highlands. I had a better experience when I built my other home with Maronda! SMH DO BETTER ADAMS! You made what was supposed to be a happy experience into a family’s nightmare!

    Lived in our home for 8 months and we love it. Neighborhood is still being built and it’s nice to see the progress. Had a couple issues that was found, but the warranty covered everything. Scheduling those repairs was all done through email and for the most part was seamless. The only hiccups was due to the third party contractors, who at times was hard to get a hold of. Considering the pandemic it is probably expected, but all issues were completed and it wasn’t anything major. Our sales manager was awesome and the super was fantastic! Still see them from time to time walking by or working on another property and always have pleasant interactions. Couldn’t be happier with living here and looking forward to years of enjoyment.

    Lies and nothing but more Lies. We signed the contract in February of 2021. It is now February of 2022 and still no house. We have been told for months "the closing will happen..." and then all of a sudden, they push it back again and again. They keep blaming covid for all their issues when I see other companies putting houses up with no problems. Talking to them gets you nowhere and if you tell them you are going to get a lawyer, they just say, "go ahead, you will have to pay for our lawyer's fees as well." We were sent the "official" closing date the other day with the dates and times only to be called the next morning and be told "sorry that was the wrong address". Stay as far away from Adams Homes as you can!! I wish I found this site before I bought.

    We decided after looking at many home builders that we liked the house and community and signed in November 2020 for our house to be built in Grand Oaks at Parrish, FL. We had to make sure we picked all our selections for the house in just a few hours at the office for our contract. After five months and them delaying on sending off for the permit until February they finally broke ground in April 2021. We were told it usually takes four to five months at this point so we were hopeful because we had always let them know we really needed to move in before school started. Unfortunately school started and we had to start driving our kids every day which took around five hours out of our day due to the distance of our rental and different school times.

    We finally decided that we would walk the house with their permission after they had been working on it for around five months and it wasn't even to drywall stage. While walking the house we found that they had not even installed our shower in the master bath. We brought it to their attention and they said it would be fixed and cause no more delays. Two months later there was still no progress made. At this point they offered to let us cancel our contract and give our money back because they couldn't even provide information on the next step in the process or an estimated date of completion. We spent 11 months trying to get our home built with little progress and a major error. All the other builders we looked at had their homes completed and the owners moved in by school. I was very disappointed with this being our first experience in building a home.

    After we cancelled our contract it seems like a miracle happened and they started completing the home much quicker. It seemed to me they wanted us to cancel so they could make more money. I just want to people to know our experience so hopefully they don't experience the frustration and heartbreak we had to. The only good thing to come out of this is that we found another company to build another home and the experience has been totally great with home also being of better quality.
