If you are thinking about building with Schumacher Homes some things you need to know prior to getting hooked on their model homes. The base price will not include any of the items you see in the models, all of it are upgrades, you will pay top dollar for junk for the so called included items!
We went as far as the design meeting to be told 2 days later that our lot prep would cost nearly $60k, we were given an estimate of $35k to start with. I know for a fact it will only cost a maximum $24k we have had several builders give us quotes throughout our process. They try to excuse it all away by saying that it is just an allowance but we all know that they will find away to eat up every penny in the end. We started out with a base price of $287k and we kept most of the included items which where sub par materials to try to keep the cost down, however everytime we wanted to make an upgrade is was thousands of dollars is upcharge and very little credit give for what the house came with that we were changing.
By the end of the day they sent us a revised quote showing $385k, almost $100k more.....That is when I drew the line. Enough is enough. I would not recommend this builder to anyone. Bunch of greedy uncaring people that I do not care to do business with.
They were told upfront that I had received several lot prep quotes as this was not my first rodeo and for them to come back with almost triple what everyone else quoted is not only a shame just flat out ridiculous. They have out priced this so much I cannot purchase if I wanted to. I was told that a general manager would be contacting me and I never received that call. Beware if you have a lot of money to throw away with nothing to show for it then this is the company to go with, otherwise run as fast as you can away from them.
There are other builders out there that are honest and get will get what you want for your money instead of settling that we will use in the near future. I am sorry I ever stopped in this place it has left a bad taste in my mouth forever.
They are not to be trusted. Bait and switch company.
