What is the time frame for completion once I’ve chosen my Ryan Legacy Builders home?

  • Most people who choose to build one of our floor plans are able to move in within six to ten months. The length of time to build your new home is dependent upon many factors such as county approvals and permitting, weather conditions, availability of materials, backlog of previously sold homes, inspections, loan processing, etc.

I have a home to sell before I purchase my new home. How does this work?

Where does Ryan Legacy Builders currently build?

  • Currently, we are building in the Meadowridge Knoll and Lake Linganore communities in Maryland. Ryan Legacy Builders also is available to build on your own home site as well.

Is Ryan Legacy Builders associated with Ryan Homes?

  • We are a separate company, but there is a family connection. Pete’s late uncle founded Ryan Homes and his father founded Ryland Homes. Therefore, there is often confusion due to the family homebuilding heritage. However, Ryan Legacy Builders is a privately owned new home builder and the other two companies are separate, publicly traded, homebuilders.

How am I kept informed during the building process?

  • At Ryan Legacy Builders we understand the excitement of building a new home. That is why our sales agents are readily available for on-site visits.
  • In addition, we will also arrange three formal meetings with you at different stages of construction:
    • Pre-Construction Meeting
    • Pre-Drywall Walk-Through
    • Pre-Settlement Demonstration

Do I need a real estate agent to buy a Ryan Legacy Builders home?

  • However, if you do have a real estate agent and they bring you to our community, both you and your agent will be warmly welcomed.
