Ryan is a huge builder and can handle the slow down in sales a lot better then a small builder. If they adjusted their prices slightly downward, they could sell these houses. Greed is still getting in the way.
Remember, Ryan homes did go bankrupt once prior many years ago....

A slowdown in sales to any builder will have an negative effect (big or small).

Good observation, as if a slow down was good? I didnt state that a slow down would not hurt Ryan, I simply stated they can handle it a lot better then a small builder.

We are considering the house up for sale on Ridgeway Ct - subdivision of Regency Manor off Tollgate Rd. Does anyone have helpful info, thoughts? Sounds like this Qtown Bypass will alleviate some of that Tollgate traffic?

Tollgate road is a traffic nightmare. Plus with the Lowes and Wawa there, why would you want to live by that?

Well, I resent this statement...I live in the borough, neither my husband or I smoke, we don't drink, and our kids are well supervised. My girls have boyfriends but I find them to be very respectful. We have had an issue with 1 or 2 kids in town but everything else is fine!

I have 2 relatives in the borough and their kids are good too. There are people in developements outside of the borough who have kids that act up too ya know. SOmetimes the being in town might make it easier for kids to get into trouble - doesn't mean those out of town are better.
Don t be so

...stereotypical. Kids are victimized and neglected in all socio-economic levels and family constellations. If your logic held true, you should not let your children attend overnight camp because some kids are victimized by camp counselors, not attend overnight church retreats because some have been victimized by ordained ministers and youth leaders.
You should also not allow your kids to stay overnight in the mansion or mcmansion of a high-powered executive couple who has allowed their child to be home alone overnight since he was in middle school.
There are intact families and people in this community who assume a tremendous amount of authority whom I would not allow in the same room with my child.
There are very moral and ethical people with a lot of personal adversity in their life who are some of the best role models our youth can have and would protect and defend children at all costs.
Some mothers are single because their husband was a wife-beating religious zealot. I would prefer my kids stay over at their house opposed to the the home of the intact family who encourages people to send pre-schoolers to their nursery school because they still paddle them when needed and train children in ways and life-style choices that I find concerning.
I know a child who was molested in the home of an intact family in an upscale new neighborhood. The perpetrator was a visitor to the home and the incident occurred in the middle of a family gathering in the seconds that all other adults had left a room.
The key is not to cast disparaging remarks based upon marital status, wealth, or location; it is to meet the families of any children where your child will spend time. Assess if their values and rules are consistent with yours. Ask tough questions about guns, alcohol, and other substances in their life and home. Get a handle of their views of sexuality. Are their kids allowed to watch sexually explicit movies? Are they horrified by any adult or sexual-like behavior in young kids or do they have pre-school daughters dressed provacatively and running round naked when there are visitors in the home and talk to about the pre-school girls having boyfriends?
Have their kids to your house and learn whether they are rebelling against the rules stated by their parents or consistently making good choices or those that are within your comfort zone as a parent.
Teach your kids about the dangers of substances and the laws and your rules related to them. Teach your kids about the sanctity of their bodies and that no one has a right to make them uncomfortable whether it is a peer or adult horsing around, tickling, or playing too rough. Adults in your children's friends' homes should not be asking your child to sit on their lap for any reason. Give your child direction to say "no" to this adult and come home immediately.
It is a balancing act to get a handle on someone being child-centered for purely altruistic purposes and those that are doing so for their own sexual gratification (peophilia). Trust your gut if a parent, grandparent, other relative or paramour seems too interested kids. DO NOT allow your child to stay over at the home of a single or married childless adult who is way too child-centered in how they spend their time and has no affiliation with an organization that screens their mentors.
If you continue to think it is about single parents and people who live in town, you risk having your child victimized and making poor choices along with continuing to inflame and divide this rapidly growing community.

First of all, if you live at either end of BGII, you either have to drive or hike to get your mail from the central mailbox location (wouldn't go there at night..). Same goes for Spring Meadow and Acadamy Place. There may be others. You may as well live in Richlandtown as they have to go to the Post Office to get their mail!
They may be 'new' homes, but are built as quickly and "economically" as possible. You are NOT, and I repeat NOT getting a well-constructed home like you would from a custom builder or an historic home. There are MANY homes from the 70's along Hillcrest Road in Milford that were built by Lewis and Son...and, even though they are 30+ years old, they are far better constructed than what THP, Judd, Ryan, et. al. can build...bar none.
As for the "front porch community," that all wears off after you're there a few years and you hardly see your neighbors anymore...or they finally show their true colors and one day you have a bunch of wackos next door.
If you want information on the "nature trails" as you call them, or "driveways" as I call them...just talk to a few residents of Hunter's Crossing on Mill Rd. They had a "love nest" on a secluded section of their trails, and possibly that's how a few creeps who broke into several cars and attempted a home invasion got out of the development. They also have gangs of hoods on bikes coming over from the slum on Hickory Drive behind the Grundy House riding all over the trails and leaving trash in their wake.
Take off your rose-colored glasses--these trails are just easy access to undesirables.
Again, as the other posters have stated, look into one of the older, much better built homes in Qtown Borough.
I hope I have given you something to think about...
I agree just don't move into Richland Meadows trialer park Rose (the OWNER) is a bitch and dosen't follow township rules! The water is always going off and when it comes back on it's dirty and I mean DIRT!

Last time I checked this wasn't a poll for best trail park. This poll was for the "Richers"...not low life scum like yourself. No wonder your upset about the cripples in this town...your one of them. Go get your cigarettes and beer and get ready for your next episode of "Cops". If your lucky maybe you'll be on these weeks show.

I drove through Brighton Gardens II tonight. I feel bad for the people who take great care of their house, just to have their neighbors house and landscape look like sh!t. Their are a ton of "mortgage poor" people in that neighborhood. I guess its just a sign of the times.
Yeah

The borough has been on the rise since the manager left. They have many new programs and is managed very nicely. The borough workers are happy, the pool is great and they are adding to the park system. The senior center will be re-built, and from what I understand, they are getting a streetlight makeover. They have a brand new restaurant in town that has the best clam chowder in the world! A few more businesses in town like a decent gift and coffee shop and you will be able to walk downtown for everything you need. All they need to do is pass that landlord thing, and get rid of the Bush House.

First of all, I've lived here MUCH longer than you; 42 years! I am indiginous to Quakertown. I was born in Quakertown Community Hospital. I don't live in a "fancy home." I live in one of those better built homes from the 70's. I don't drive a Mercedes, but a 10 year old Ford.
As for the 'undesirables;' I see these kids hanging out on the street at 10 or 11 at night when I go to visit a friend in your neighborhood. They talk of the neighbors having drug parties and can't wait until they can move out. I actually have pity for the original owners of these homes. I remember when they were first built, as my piano teacher lived there. They were nice. But since then, you'll have to admit, you've certainly got some trouble with some neighbors.
I brought up the issues in hunters crossing as I have friends who live there and tell me what goes on. I've been on their "trails" and have seen the "love nest" that was there. Disgusting. If you look at the world through rose colored glasses, these trails are a great idea, but in reality, they just attract undesirable behavior. We can thank Mrs. Patricia Keller of Richland Township for that!
We can thank the vast influx of people into these "bedroom communities" for the traffic nightmare on 309 and increased school taxes.

Richland Meadows trailer park had DEPA investigating water issues yesterday on September 26, 2008. Residents are feeling ill due to the ongoing problems in the trailer park. It saddens me that people are so critical of other people because we are all born into this world the same way; through a human being. However, in any neglectful manner in a human being there are concequences, and Richland Meadows trailer park residents need to speak their voice and speak to an attorney for thier protection.
