Asked by Link, San Jose, CA • Tue Feb 19, 2008
I had put several grand down to reserve a lot at Gables End new home community in Mountain View, CA. I thought I was good until they frame the houses and I can take a hard hat tour of the house.
I received a call the next day stating there was a mistake and I reserved a lot that was slated to be a model, therefore the builders took it away from me. At this point, the majority of the lots of phase 1 have been reserved (the very few left are plans I don't want). They tell me I can have first pick on phase 2 but at a higher price and later delivery. This is impossible for me as I have to buy a home buy a certain date as part of a work contract stipulation.
So I ask all the realtors out there, what can I do? I did nothing wrong and it was the sales center and builder who got their lines crossed and let me put money down to reserve a lot I shouldn't have been able to. So because of their mistake, I lose out on a house that I really wanted. Has big corporation won again????
