On Tuesday, February 19, 2008, a couple in Franklin County Court won a jury verdict against Maronda Homes for nearly 3.2 million dollars.  The couple, Roman and Jennifer Cosner alleged that Maronda Homes knowingly sold them a defective home.  The jury verdict in favor of the homeowners stated that Maronda Homes did sell a defective home and that Maronda was aware of that fact.  Maronda acted in an “unfair, deceptive or unconscionable” manner.

Maronda has always had a reputation for building the biggest square footage home possible at the lowest price.  No other local production home builder can even come close to the price and square footage of Maronda Homes.  There is usually a reason why this happens.   It is not really complicated.  Home owners should stop being so naive.  You buy the lowest priced “anything” and you are going to have problems.  I don’t care if you buying a new home, a toilet seat or a widget.  You get what you pay for!!!!  Like many home builders, Maronda has had it’s fair share of unresolved consumer complaints.

In my opinion, this could be landmark case for new home builders.  The jury ruling in this case has now set a precedent for all future, similar cases.  I would be really curious to see how this affects the policies and procedures of other builders in our area.  I bet many builders are now “scrambling” to figure out how to adjust their business practices to deal with this jury verdict.  

I’m glad the home owner had won their court case.  But, I guarantee you, that they probably didn’t use an Exclusive Buyer Agent to help them purchase their new built home.  If they had the proper Buyer Broker representation looking out for their best interest then this problem probably would not have happened.  As consumers we have to be accountable for our bad decisions or lack of…..
