I think this pretty much says it all...

MLS ID# 3721442

Yep, if you follow that link, you'll see that "our" new house, built to our specifications, is officially up for sale - with an asking price of $15,000 less than the original price we negotiated.

When Pulte homes decided they were not going to renew any contingency contracts, they didn't waste any time. In short order, we got notice that our contract was cancelled, got our earnest money back, and got notice that our loan application from Pulte mortgage was cancelled (even though we were already approved). All the letters we got (no phone calls, no prior notice) were written as though WE had requested it.

All we can do at this point is hope this house sits for long enough for our home to sell, and for us to save up enough for a decent downpayment. Otherwise, it's the death of a dream.

Only time will tell how this turns out, but it's not looking like we're going to be moving any time soon. As usual, stay tuned...
