We went to look at the homes at Luckey Ranch , San Antonio Texas . We signed a agreement on 16 July and gave them $1000 for earnest money.
On 18 July we decided not to purchase the home due to job reassignment. I notified the agent and he told me that I needed a letter from my employer stating the job reassignment. I called the agent back and he told me to come and see him . Thought this was odd.
On 19th July I called back and the agent told me I needed to sign a agreement cancellation form. I signed the cancellation on 20 July . I called back to check on my earnest money and the agent told me that the money would not be refunded. Why didn’t the agent tell me this during our first phone conversation?
I talked to the manager he had no answers for me . I talked to other realtors and they said I was well within the refund window . Looking at the reviews for this company, they do this a lot . All that we signed was that agreement and nothing else .
We still needed to be approved for the loan .
So, I guess a pre -agreement cost 1000 dollars ? This is a scam .
