We bought in Circa in 2012. Had a few leaks and landscaping wasnt the best, (mainly grass), but other than that absolutely no issues. A year later, still OK. They were quick to fix the faults in the defects liability period. Pretty easy really, put deposit down, pay money, move in. No stressful building decisions to make. I know a guy who is spending $800k+ on a new home and it is full of issues, wallpaper peeling, incorrect measurements, no integration with tradespeople - glad I didnt build. He didnt save much money either.
Not really. We were pretty happy with them. Only problems we had were with our manhole and a few little cosmetic problems(door hinges etc..) nothing that was drastic. Villa World in my opinion were one of the better ones to deal with.
