Buescher Homes - Home Builder
Update, 2008-05-12: An update on Buescher can be found here (Abandoned homes, some lots bought up, some vandalized, weeds aplenty).
Update, 2008-03-11: A reader (who bought a house from Buescher but now cannot get in touch with them) sent us an informative set of links related to Buescher:
A number of people also pointed out that Buescher apparently holds a high percentage (1/5-1/4) of vacant homes in Tarrant county. See this screenshot someone sent in for an example, and also check out the Collin Central Appraisal link below for more.
Update 2008-03-10: We have received word that Buescher Homes has filed for bankruptcy. Here is the relevant information: Buescher Homes - US Bankruptcy Court District of Northern District of Texas Case # 08-30781-sgj11.
One tipster pointed us in the direction of the Collin Central Appraisal District where a search of Buescher properties turned up 281 results.
We have received word from various tipsters that Dallas/Fort Worth-based Buescher Homes (buescherhomes.com — site down - archive) has put "ALL BUSINESS OPERATIONS ARE CURRENTLY ON HOLD." From one email, apparently sent from a Buescher Homes email address:
We recieved further, separate correspondence regarding Buescher Homes indicating closure. From one such tipster:
Regarding Buescher's size, another informant has indicated they close as many as 250 homes a year.
Finally, another tipster has speculated that Buescher was forced into bankruptcy. However, we have as of February 29, 2008, been unable to corroborate this rumor:
It looks like they were forced into filing Chapter 7 liquidation by some of their subs on 2/15/08. Most of the homes built within the past year have mechanic liens on them.
Hi there, I am trying to find wall paint information that the builder used. I have had 0 luck so far. Is there any information about this that anyone can assist me with? Really would like to match the paint! :)If worse comes to worse and no one knows, chip off a sample and take it to Home Despot, Lowes, or a paint specialty store to get it matched. Even if you had a can now, the exposure to light, air, daily traffic, etc. changes the color. Permalink

Important: This company is on our list of builder operations that have "imploded" (see also ailing lenders). This is a somewhat subjective call, and does not necessarily mean total shutdown or bankruptcy. It can also mean steep and rapid declines in enterprise value; or abnormal "bail-out" by corporate parents or peers in order to continue to operate. The builders may be residential or commercial.
