I and several other people i know have bought a home from this place about 3 to 4 yrs ago and now the floors sinking in these homes. These homes were purchased for the people whose homes where damaged where Hurricane Floyd hit in N.C.

Original review: April 14, 2005

I purchased a home in the Dunes Park subdivision last June form Maggie Romero and Jorge who were sales representatives fro DR Horton. The home is beautiful and I love it. I was told at time of purchase that our community would be adjacent to a recreational lake that would be part of our community. Jorge told me that the lake would have a split rail fence and that the lake would be open to boating, fishing, walking trail etc. I was also told that I would be in a high tax district because of the future lake that would be completed by the end of 2005. I was ok with this because it was worth it to me if I was going to have this great lake a block away. Another selling point was that our home value would surely sky rocket once the lake was completed due to obvious reasons.

We were notified in an HOA letter to the community that the lake is not a recreational lake but a will become a water treatment facility. We are out of luck for all those who thought it was going to be a lake. Contrary to what we thought our home values are going down and we are now going to be smack dabb right next to a water treatment plant. This is the most major complaint I have with this home builder and I am very concered. There are dozens of my neighbors who are complaining as well as we all have been lied to.

My home was much higher priced that what I would have paid for thinking a lake would be coming and now I can not even sell it for what I purchased it for let alone gain any value from it.

Original review: April 8, 2005

My wife and I built a new home with Emerald (DR Horton) and closed in July of 2004. Prior to closing on the home we hired our own building inspector to inspect the home and create a report of defects and issues. The report generated by the inspector was fourteen pages long and encompassed a whole range of issues. A copy of this report was given to the builder, which in turn completed none of those items on the report. Thus work continued and still continues today to correct these outstanding issues.

The issue that has currently reached an impasse is a leaking shower in the master bathroom. The shower has leaked since August of 2004 and has been torn out and repaired over five times now. In the course of fixing the shower the glass and metal shower enclosure (provide by and installed by Luxury Baths by Arrow of Houston, Texas) has been replaced over eight times due to being damaged during delivery or installation. The latest shower enclosure was delivered and installed on 4/7/04 is also damaged and now both companies DR Horton and Luxury Baths by Arrow are refusing to correct the problem.

The damages that have resulted in this shower being torn out five times have been our ability to use it. The previous time it was torn out the repairs took over two months. The economic damage the cost of the replacing the damaged shower surround, plus the cost of damage to our title floor in the bathroom due to this on going construction.
