Hey I was extremely stupid! So if you just bought a home let me save you months of disaster! Walk around the house and bring a roll of take with you! Bring as many people to help! Tell the builder that you are going to walk around, and he should to a damn look at every corner! Ceiling especially if you upgraded like I did! My pitch looks like NC mountains! Explain to the builder please don't talk about the air or nothing first they will distract you on purpose! Please tell him to walk in every room and look! Make the builder so separate and triple check his rooms! Take a pad and write anything and everything down! They fooled me and I'm usually a pro at not being fooled! I would put head phones on and inspect! The main island cabinet was smashed like all the way across and you better know that they will act like they never seen it! Your doors will not close and have huge sunshine coming In! Don't be fooled about they all do that!!! Most importantly they fixed it but I never checked until a few weeks later the shelf fell the breaker kept tripping and the electrician came out! Then you get a 30-day inspection! They will come in and something like small they will tell you they might not fix that! Then they will have the contractors come in, and they will finally take care of it just so you felt wow I'm special! So the cabinet guy finally came, but he knows that he'SS getting paid, and cannot tell you that your cabinet is cracked inside and its going to collapse with your granite counter because they never fixed it just put a piece of wood and shot 1000 staples and glue! The cabinet was never fixed it was covered! Then your great warranty guy will hide outside stop the guy before he shows up so he can tell him just patch it up! Meanwhile, you have to leave cause you have children in school! So the cabinet guy can't tell you why you have daylight going through! But at least he feels bad and says I get you a new molding strip because 1000 staples and 5 minutes to rig it up just isnt enough time! So when your driving back into the neighborhood the warranty guy becomes a stalker waiting for you to yell at you I cant close the work order because hes going to have to come back! Yeah please dont let anyone touch anything like a paint brush thats isnt a pro! Please!!! So weeks later some othe cabinet guy will show up and when you ask him hey do you have the same molding because I paid extra and the other side don't look like this! Yeah, I wish you see the damage before the repaired the cabinet! Well the cabinet guy said the cabinet is still here and I can see how bad it was smashed because the added a piece of wood and painted it black!!! Then when you call the guy hes hiding around the corner all the cabinet guy said I just takes to him and hes in a meeting! Liar he told the cabinet guy just to add the molding with another 1000 staples! I seen that and my jaw locked like a pit bull! So told that warranty to stick it! I think the 6 months of being nice thinking they fix things to demanding that its replaced! Then what do you know Lazy lair shows up! He blames everyone and you know I had to get the kiddos so he stalked me again and came knocking on the door! Liar acted like well Im going to try to get you a new cabinet! *** that liar will not step on my porch! Please dont be nice! They will run a bulldozer over you! I just wish he actually broke in my house instead of the cabinet shelf falling! *** I would feel incredibly proud the body slam would have been so relaxing! Get this he came in and he grabbed my wallet of the counter! I actually was going to body slam him and hopefully smash the whole granite counter and cabinet! Thank God he put it back down cause the kiddos were watching him! When you kiddos say hes extremely rude! He actually helped me explain to the kids why great grades with benefit you and that liar is a looser! Please follow the simple rules! Ask for more! Use the blue tape and pad and tell the builder to please be quiet so you can inspect the house! Day light threw doors!! You demand a professional door installer and replace the rubber! Last but not least if you have really bad walls they will push them 11 months out! Say Nope I need it fix today! And make sure skilled labor!!! Termites they will scare the britches off on you! Stop them because its a diversion just so you dont address anything! Never sign anything unless you see it like double check everything! Please dont let the guys talk and smooth things out! They will blame others like the cabinet guys installed it someone else destroyed it!! Why would the cabinet guys cover it up! They get work and told to be quiet!! Please if you buy a house its easy once the leave its over they will not fix anything! For being the whenever you get a chance to when I seen the broken cabinet its game over no more nice guy! Pull your sleeves up because you might have to stoop to their level! Amen!!!! I hope this helps you! My sleeves are pulled up and I rather have the repairs done and force them to pay!!

I want a walk threw with a blue tape and fix everything yesterday!
The house like countless times before just sits and waits. It is basically done just needs insulation in and touch up and trim paint, the builder only has one crew which takes a week or so per house to do in the neighborhood. They tell us it will still take over a...

Letting others know what to look for

Make sure you get your own home inspector before you close. The tile job was horrible. Not flat at all. The sprinkler system had to get corrected several times. Poor craftsmanship on the trim work. I have 1/2 I ch separation in a corner which they just filled it in with caulking. When you do the walk Em through and tape everything that needs to be corrected make sure you video tape it because the majority of the issues we had they just pulled the tape off

User's recommendation: Need new laborers for a quality homr.

Unfinished Work

I closed on my home on 8/3/21 and is still trying to get Chris to correct the HORRIBLE job done on my landscaping. I have huge gaps in the sod, mounds and hills everywhere and drainage issues in the back of my home. I have constantly contacted Chris but to no avail. I would like for someone to come out and fix the issues.

Dissatisfied

Just a poorly designed, cheaply built home. The paint they use throughout is a cheap, flat paint that a cardboard box leaves a black mark on. When you try and wash it off, no matter how gently, the paint comes off. There is no storage in these homes. Some of what they call storage is unusable. Like a narrow wire shelf over the washer dryer in the laundry that cannot be reached once your appliances are in. The kitchen has sparse storage, no linen closet. It's a cheaply built home, and you don't realize all the problems until you move in. We moved in on March 1st and are planning on listing just it next spring.

User's recommendation: Just don't.

Lies about time frame

When I signed the contract in the beginning of January, they verbally told me the latest move in would be June. Well its June now and they barely got the wiring in. They let the house sit for weeks doing basic nothing and then they do a job way behind what they promised and tell you how great they are doing. DO NOT sign a contract unless you have completion dates with penalties in the contract. They dont care about building your house in any timely manner.

User's recommendation: Use someone who cares about getting your house buily.

Questionable Options Pricing

We priced out two Mungo homes in Conway, SC and found that the options selected, i.e. rear porch and flooring, were the same price regardless of the home's square footage!!! When we questioned this discrepancy we were told..."The price is the price". We bailed, so buyer beware.

User's recommendation: Do your homework.

Question

Mungo Homes - Question
I had asked why are Mungo homes at Clear Pond do bg they use regular paint in the bathroom my paint continues to peel off the walls even after they repainted it. I live in a 2nd story home at Clear Pond development in Myrtle Beach SC, it gets hot in the winter and summer even at night, it is 81 degrees upstairs and downstairs. I could get a real answer and they didn't look into it. The home is 2 years old now I purchased it when it was 1 years old and they did thec11 month inspection that was to be done from the previous owner. This shouldn't be happening to a young (new) home.

User's recommendation: Make sure your new home is sound you are paying yo much money to have builder issues fixed yourself.

No Business Ethics

Tried to purchase a Mungo home at The Preserves at Kitchin Farms, Wake Forest, NC. Both times within 10 days when I met with a check in my hand to pay the deposit they told me the price of the house went up. This is the truth...after every 3rd contract signed, the price of all remaining houses, built or to be built 8 months out, has a 1% price increase. That is $3000 to $10,000 increase. If they sell six houses the increase is double that. Bait and Switch if you ask me.

User's recommendation: Sign contract on initial visit or you’ll pay more with each following visit until you sign a contract. Beware Bait and Switch!

They are LIARS!! They are thieves!!!

Do NOT purchase a Mungo house I use the word house only because I cant use the true word ...Box of *** They are hustlers probably paying local state government officials to scam people. Do NOT purchase a two story as they are too cheap to even insulate in between floors. The wealthy Mungo families should be forced to live in these conditions. Theyd clutch their pearls if subjected to such *** work!

User's recommendation: Do NOT buy a Mungo Home! A mobile home is built better!

No Help

The Floors Started cracking and splintering. There was grout and puddy placed inbetween the floor boards! some of the gaps could have a quarter put through. contacted the company. sent 6 reps out 3 different times. They stated that they would fix it the first three times. the last time they came out and stated they would not fix the floors. that it was "natural wear and tear". now we have "hardwood" floors that look like they are 73 years old. Thanks Mungo. T ALSO. there HOA management group is garbage. they do not enforce rules. the neighborhood is starting to go down hill very quickly. Good Riddance.

User's recommendation: Buy a house from a quality home builder.
