Real Del Mar / &Bait and Switch&!
I was taken to Real Del Mar by an agent who knew I was interested in houses. I was shown a model at an area called Almalfi. I was told my house could be ready in six months. Well, I never bought it, I just felt uneasy. They were not putting my deposit into an escrow account, they did not have inspections and other basic checks and balances. I have been contacted continuously about this, or a condominium. I went there again, and over a year later the house they tried to sell me is not there, nor are any condominiums. I just want the agent to quit calling me to follow up again. I can see why people who have bought there are upset. The "amenities" they promise, pools, rec rooms, barbecue areas etc. are not in yet either. I would be afraid to own a home in a development that runs business this way. Condo ownership is even riskier, because all repairs and maintenance depend on the integrity of the developer. STAY AWAY from Real Del Mar.
