I put down a deposit of 10% on a Pulte townhome, obviously with every intention of going through with the sale by putting down that much money. A few weeks before closing I found out that a job I was to start in january was not guaranteed, also that my daughter who was going to live with me would be moving to North Carolina when her husband returned from Iraq.
This was not the situation when I agreed to purchase the home. She was going to help me with the bills because I am currently on disability. We had been looking for a home for awhile and were excited. I did not feel comfortable that I could find a job in time, having been on disability it is not easy, to support the home so I canceled the sale due to financial hardship.
Pulte then sent me an email saying they would hold my deposit on account for 6 months to put towards another pulte home. When I called them about it they told me that email was a mistake and they would not hold my money nor refund it. I can never replace that money and depending what happens with my health I will really need it later on. How could they keep money from a person on disability??
They tried to talk me into buying the home and then reselling it and I just was not up for the stress of that or putting out the remainder of the money. I did not like their tactics when trying to sell the home either, they ignore all your concerns under the guise of making you feel like a chronic complainer when in reality they were real concerns. I am so sorry that I ever dealt with them
