Recently Construction business owner, Hugo Diaz and his wife Blanca we arrested on various charges including money laundering conspiracy and harboring illegal immigrants.  His company is named De La Fuente Construction.

The building community has claimed Hugo Diaz, "has been undercutting everyone in the market by 30 percent or more.” 

There is much controversy about this issue and enough pointing fingers to go around.  Questions have been raised about local government officials as well as local businessmen using his company . 

At the end of the day, do the “below market” prices of labor translate to lower costs to consumers buying homes? 

Will a crackdown on the workers mean rising construction costs as well as construction delays?  It

It seems that when buyers talk about "new construction", they often are concerned about problems related to "construction quality".  I often hear comments about they don't build like "in the good old days, etc.  Clearly, we live in a different world with many new products and workers that have different values and work ethics.  Actually, homes today are built to stricter energy standards than just a few years ago.  I also see workers on new home sites working way past what many of us consider normal hours, even framing at 7 PM on a Sunday night in the summer months.  What's really happening? 

I don’t think there is any builder that wakes up in the morning and decides “today, I’ll cut corners and build a crappy, poor quality house”.  That just doesn't

"Builder Wars" begin in FT Gordon & Grovetown, Georgia Area

wilsonparkerhomes

While Animal Planet's Whale Wars take place in the icy Antarctic waters, the builder wars are just getting heated up in Grovetown and the Augusta area overall!

Since the arrival of Crown Communities a.k.a. Pillon Communities about 18 months ago in Augusta our real estate market has seen dramatic changes. While Crown captured a lion's share of the new construction business, it didn't go unnoticed. Local builders have adjusted construction methods and pricing while more "out of town" builders mainly from the Atlanta market have arrived on the scene. It's been very interesting to watch and the competition continues to increase especially in the Grovetown area targetiing the lucrative FT
