My client didn't really like the floor plan so we moved on not thinking back. The next day or two, 3 in that same track came on the market in under 24 hours. I thought it was odd. But, again, client didn't love the floor plan, so I mentioned it to her, but moved on.
We are writing an offer today on a home she loves. One that is in a different neighborhood, but still nearby.
Talking with one of my affiliates, there was mention of some possible slippage and/or grading issues in a track around the same area. Now, there is an older neighborhood, we call 'Slippery City' across the main boulevard, but this was about a newer track. She said a co-worker had walked away from his house when 'overnight, the wall fell down'. Mentioned a couple of street names and it turns out it was the neighborhood where I saw the ceiling corner separation.
I sent an e-mail out to my company associates to see if anyone had heard of anything in the track with the ceiling problem, and/or, the track my client wanted to write an offer in. A few shocked responses but no one seemed to know of any issues.
Thank goodness for Google!
So Google, here I went. Very, very quickly I did find a lawsuit in the track where we saw the ceiling issue. Something to do with substandard grading. The track my client loves the house in? Not involved, nothing I found of any discouragement. Phew! She was pretty happy too!
I am constantly communicating with my affiliates. Constantly. Whether it is in person, on the phone, an e-mail blast, social media pages. We all work together to help our clients.
Just a story of the week. Things to keep in mind.
