So... By now ya'll know my sister has contracted to build in here too. (YAY!!!)
I swear though.... She is NOT having the same good experience I have had.
Before signing contract she got the Rep to verbally agree to have the house done no later than the 1st week of December. End of November being ideal. She was told "No Problem". So they signed.
Then they were given a date in Mid January to close. Um.... No. Then they moved the date up to Dec. 16th. Again, Um...NO! Company coming from Germany for several weeks arrives on the 17th. Not happening.
So they finally move it up to Dec. 8th as a tentative close date. Okay, better. Still cutting it super close, but better. Why promise an end of Novemeber/First of December date if you couldn't deliver? They would have NEVER signed otherwise.
Okay, well since the date is closer, things seemed smoothed over. They were told last week they were going to have their pre-construction meeting this week coming up. Now they are being told they have to wait one more week. Um..wouldn't that push the house closing back to the week of the 16th? So again, HELL NO!
I swear, sometimes it seems like they are getting the run around. Like our Rep has NO interest in even trying to deliver on the promise she made to them as to when the house would be ready. My sister is torn on moving anyway. She has lived in the house she is in since we moved here when we just young girls. She's raised her family there. Something new would be nice, but it's an extremely emotional journey. I can tell ya'll right now, Ryan is NOT helping her in thinking they have made the right decision, or making this any easier for her.
There have been times where I have truly thought they should just walk away. She is also having the same problem I did with having the Reps get back to us in a timely fashion. I wonder if everyone else in here had the problem? I know for a fact one of my neighbors also did. If Ryan strives for 10's, I can tell you our Rep did not get a 10 from us, and I'm pretty sure from our neighbor either. On top of that, it would take some major changes for my sister to give the Rep a 10 now too. I wonder how many non 10's it takes before you lose your job? Not that I wish on the Rep at all. Personally, the Rep is wonderful! Great personality! Love the Rep to death, personally. But professionally, not the best.
I feel like the Rep helped us out a lot. And when she was slack on communication, she did try and make up for it. But I hate how my sister is being done. This whole process has been nothing but telling them one thing, and then them getting another. I have actually told her to pull out of contract several times already. I hate seeing them so torn up over this. I hate seeing the emotional struggle this for them. It would be easier if things with Ryan were going smoothly, but they aren't.
What do you do?
I love my sister. I just want them to be happy. I think they could be very happy in the new house. But I know they'd continue being happy where they are. Why put yourself through the stress and headache and emotional struggles? To me, it just doesn't seem worth it. I feel like they have been sold a bunch of bologna. I REALLY hope Ryan can turn this around for them. It's so hard to see this when we had a good experience.
