Shoopman Homes / Backed out of agreement
We wanted to build a new home and selected Shoopman Homes as our builder. Our realtor submitted an offer, which was accepted in writing. Our next step was to sign the purchase agreement, which was signed by us and by the seller's delegate (salesperson). We were told we would be contacted in a week to schedule an appointment at the design center. We waited three weeks and called the Sales Associate, who stated she didn't know what the hold up was and a person from the design center would call us soon. Still nothing. Finally, after 6 weeks, our realtor contacted the Sales Associate who told us Paul had "changed his mind." He no longer wanted to build our home. Although we have an accepted offer in writing, they accepted our ernest money, because Paul (owner) did not sign the purchase agreement himself, he feels he has the right not to follow through. He strung us along for almost 8 weeks (which we could have spent with another builder) and then "changed his mind." He is dishonest, has HORRIBLE sales practices, and can't be trusted. Part of me is glad he backed out because out or our AGREEMENT because I wouldn't trust him to build a home my family would be safe in. Oh, and I have everything in writing.
