Nicole West/Seller 2613 S.W. 14 th Dr. / Unwittingly Holding My Escrow Deposit
Nicole West with Remax Mortgage company along with the owner of a property I was trying to purchase 2613 SW 14th DR. Scam, Rip Off, Not Advised "AT THIS MOMENT" to consider purchasing a home in Deerfield Beach, Florida 33442. I've be working with my realtor Linda trotter who has been great through the process. I was very excited to purchase this home for my family and myself. I spoke with Bank of America prior to even speak with Linda to start looking for a home. she was in touch with the bank as well confirming my pre approved amount. I found a home the was listed for $250, 00.00. I thought it was high compared to the Broward county real estate board of commissions as their website had it listed for $185, 000 2 years in a row. After what seem to be very elementary style sales tactics throughout the process I ended up agreeing to pay $241, 900. I put $6, 000k in escrow, paid for the inspection, appraisal and other misc. fees that we're throw at me. Now I'm in a position where the bank put the loan through under business income versus personal income and I only have 1.6 years in business where as I need 2 full years of profitable tax returns to get the loan needed. Now that I could not provide betty Tolbert at bank of America the required documentation she need. She sent me a denial letter stating insufficient length of time. I waited over a week to get this letter and Linda my realtor was right the every step of the way. The letter arrived on Tuesday afternoon at 1 15pm. I immediately contact Linda had it signed and faxed to her within hours. Now 2-3 days later the seller of the house, home, property in Deerfield beach, Fl. 2613 SW 14th Dr is refusing to sign the contract necessary for me to get my escrow money back. I feel as if I being scammed, ripped off, etc by the seller, Nicole West at Re-max Realty and Balisteri Realty Linda Trotter and Ann Defries. I will be updating this post as time goes on until I get my escrow money back. In the mean time if anyone has any information on what I can do to speed the process up, it would be greatly appreciated.
