Incredibly average. Having built a completely custom home and having bought similar new construction homes in the past I am neither impressed or unimpressed with Newcastle.

Nothing I can really say I disliked it was a little rough because I had to do everything from another state with my daughter actually at the house by phone showing the house to me.[name removed] the builder was great and took care of all we asked and answered all our questions.agents took care of all paper work and worked with us on dates because we could not be down there ourselves due to my wife being handicapped from diabetes complications. All in all they were very helpful.

Likes: home is beautiful, builders are usually easy to reach Dislikes: lack of upgrade options and felt misled about structural upgrades, lot is too small, landscaping was awful and have issues with how property lines were determined and how the home was positioned, driveway was not large enough and it’s impossible to turn into garage from driveway

We wish we had brought our own realtor into the deal. We did not feel the realtor that represented both the builder and us truly represented us. She wasn’t even at closing. In fact, there were no familiar faces at closing, which was off-putting. We were impressed with the overall timeline, though we have seen quite a few evidences of projects being completed in haste or without much care. (Feel free to contact me about these problems we have not reported to home warranty.) We loved [name removed], our builder. He communicated with us directly while the house was being built, and he has continued to show care even after move-in.

1. Quality of the house is really bad 2. The way you handed over the house is pathetic. There is a 40 lbs of construction waste in the basement I took care of. It was not cleaned at all. Garage was also really bad. Heater gas connection was not given and after repeated compliants for 2 months you guys fixed it. Weather proof was not done well. I see a lot of bugs in the basement and living area. Also huge fluctuation of temperature in the bedrooms and living area. Garage is flooded with rain water. Landscaping of the backyard is not done well and every small rain makes a small pond around there. 3. Warranty issues are not being taken care well. I have to follow-up for several time before we get to a a closure. 4. I just got an email saying my warranty is completed even thought it is only 10 months.

I have had nothing but issues since moving in. Things like painting certain areas were not done after the first and second walk through. [name removed] driveway needed to be repoured. It was not originally we had to ask again. Where the garage connects to the porch was not sealed well and had to be sealed. Garage door had to be fixed. Front door paint was chipping from day one it looks like they just put one coat of paint. They touched it up but still chipping Two warped cabinets had to be replaced in the kitchen. My air conditioner keeps dying on me they have only sent someone out once to look at it. Workers ruined the quartz on my island by putting their fast food cups on it and water stains firmed that cannot be fixed They refuse to replace the quartz on my island or even discount the cost My guest shower has a leak. I called when I found standing water on the floor [name removed] came the next day and looked at it and said there was no leak. By the next week I had water damage in the bathroom the hallways from the laundry room to the front entrance I’ve had dehumidifiers fans and an air scrubber running for five days straight. [name removed] hardwoods baseboards sheet rock etc needto be replaced. I have had chipped tile in my master bath [name removed] front of the dishwasher had to be replaced bc it had three dents in it [name removed] grout in my master shower is missing in some areas and one of my tiles has a blue mark on it- not art if the marble pattern. It has been one nightmare after another. I am very disappointed in how the quartz issue was handled. Even the quartz guy said he would see the workers leave their cups for days on my counter. I am also upset about the AC unit At least they have now gotten on top of the water leak and fixed the leak we will see how repairs go. Also my fence had two separate issues as well.

[name removed] was great, and for not a completely custom home I understand it. There were a few things I wanted to do that weren't "options." I expected to be able to find special lighting or work with design to do a more customized fireplace, etc. Overall it was an amazing experience. I think both [name removed], your realtor, and [name removed], our contractor, need RAISES!! They blew us a way with how personable and hospitable they were.

[name removed] enough agreeable conversation. I went into building this home all by myself. I tried very hard to stay on top of everything that was gonna on. I know I aggravated a few people but I definitely was right on some of the complaints I had. I’ve been in my new home 3 weeks now and still waiting on a few things that needs to be addressed. I have spoke to the builder and I understand that lots of things are backed up because of Covid but I’m sure everything will get finished as I expect. I am loving my home and neighborhood and just hope all issues that we’ve addressed will be taken care of. I hope I have many years here. Thanks so much, God bless, [name removed]

We were originally going to purchase in Griffin Park and were a few weeks from having our financial situation sorted out which we worked on every single day for months. Eventually, we were told on New Years [name removed] that our home was no longer ours. We were given 72 hours to sort it out, but being a holiday, we couldn’t get in touch with our mortgage broker. I felt like there was some flexibility given by NewCastle, but our situation wasn’t taken seriously and no one really took the time to see the bigger picture. Outside of that, we were able to close on this home in 45 days and we’re somewhat happy. Still wish we had our home in GP that we built and worked for.

1. Quality of the house is really bad 2. The way you handed over the house is pathetic. There is a 40 lbs of construction waste in the basement I took care of. It was not cleaned at all. Garage was also really bad. Heater gas connection was not given and after repeated compliants for 2 months you guys fixed it. Weather proof was not done well. I see a lot of bugs in the basement and living area. Also huge fluctuation of temperature in the bedrooms and living area. Garage is flooded with rain water. Landscaping of the backyard is not done well and every small rain makes a small pond around there. 3. Warranty issues are not being taken care well. I have to follow-up for several time before we get to a a closure. 4. I just got an email saying my warranty is completed even thought it is only 10 months.

Purchasing my home went smoothly. [name removed] was amazing and made sure all was complete and done. Some of the subcontractors who came back after I moved in to fix some items did not follow back through to make sure all was going well.

The speed with which the warranty department makes sure that my claims are handled. The home has been relatively maintenance free to this point as well.
