We were recently were shopping for a new home in Gastonia(North Carolina) development that had recently sprung up. Most of the homes were under construction but some were completed so we got a tour of the of the homes that were finished.
The homes were being sold as is, but were still in a attractive price range. So we decided to sign the contract on one of the homes, which the sales representative so kindly explained to us. However, what he failed to mention is the policy on refunding the earnest money that you initially put down on a home. Turns out the policy is anti-buyer for in, the contract you only have five days to get approved for a home loan and have the money ready from the date you sign the contract.
Needless to say this is a extremely short window to acquire a bank willing to loan the money let alone be approved in a timely manner. DO NOT make the same mistake we and think LGI Homes is a good faith realty company they will steal your money and refuse to give it back.
LGI Homes are thieves!
