As a former manager for LGI homes I can tell you that you are getting a tainted product. LGI closed on numerous house with foundation defects.
Additional, multiple houses that did not pass 3rd party frame or energy inspection were sold nonetheless. The moisture barriers used on these houses is being used as air barriers, which is against the moisture barriers mfg. recommendations. Some houses don't even have the termite treatments or pest defense systems installed as required.
LGI throws houses up in 45 days. Any issues that arise are quickly covered up as to keep their "build schedules" and "closing dates", which are NEVER missed. LGI is as hypocritical as you can get. They have a motto...don't build a house you wouldn't let Eric Liper's grandmother live in.
The joke is that LIpers grandmother isn't living!!! Ha ha joke is on the consumer. Go visit their Manor, TX community, Presidential Glen and see these issues first hand! Note how bumpy and roller coaster like the neighborhood streets are.
These houses are built on the same expansive soils, which is starting to result in foundation issues in the houses that are 2-3 years old, that the houses are built on. LGI knows this. They don't "beef up" the foundations (because of cost - remember, 1 of LGIs core values is profitability...apparently at the expense of their consumers) because they chemically inject the soils in an attempt to stabilize the soils. It isn't working.
Don't read the positive reviews!!! Those are from new and recent homeowner purchases.
Find an LGI homeowner older than 2 years and get their opinion. Buyer and employment seeker...BEWARE!!
