So we signed our purchase contract for a new construction townhome back in late May/early June with the understanding that our anticipated move-in would be November/December. Considering this would be Phase I of the community (i.e., the first two tracts of townhomes) and there was six-seven months in between the contract signing and the move-in, the sales agent assured us that they did not foresee any delays (plus the land was already cleared and leveled with paved streets including curbs). Fast-forward to today (basically end of October) and only the first tract of phase 1 is built. They have yet to do ANYTHING on tract 2 homes except sprayed the green foam (i.e., seedlings plus fertilizer mix) on all the land, including the actual lots. The builder's excuses for the delay keep changing, first it was permits, then it was management wishing to sell more units, now it's drainage (although driving by to see, no drainage work appears to be ongoing). Very hard to buy excuses #1 and #3 since those two would have prevented the first tract of homes from being built anyway. Basically, we're not expecting this to be ready till March at the earliest, but even that is overly optimistic considering that winter (and the associated weather-related delays with it) is coming.This obviously stinks since who knows what would happen with interest rate for the mortgage in the Spring. Had we know we would be strung along like this, we probably would not have gone this route. In any case, has anyone else been in this type of situation before? Any advices? We had to put down a $10K deposit back in May/June.
