Well Neumann Homes may be out of our neighborhood, The Village at Harmony Park in Westminster, Colo. They had to auction off their remaining inventory because they couldn't move them in this real estate climate. Problems continue in the sub-division with many homes that were bought on spec are remaining on the market. Our subdivision does not allow renters, so many of them were left out in the cold when the market crashed here in Colorado.
Also, there are many problems with the infrastructure. The sidewalks are cracking and are not sloped correctly. Also the concrete was not finished correctly and the top layers are flaking off. But according to Neumann, it is not their problem. They are blaming the concrete contractor, but they hired the contractor, so I don't see the problem.
And now people elsewhere are having problems with Neumann Homes. In their Chatham Grove subdivision, in Aurora, Ill., they are also having problems. In an article in the describe many problems in the subdivision. It sounds familiar.
I think that Neumann Homes has been hit hard by the problems in the real estate market and they are struggling to keep moving forward and build out their subdivisions.
Overall, we are happy with the house. There has not been any structural problems and the designs of the homes are some of the best I have seen on the market. But their customer service has not real great and some of the concrete work was horrible.
