As of yesterday, I am not sure I will be getting my new house after all. 😭 It is supposed to go into production in February, yesterday I received a call from my dealer informing me due to numerous cancellations they will not build my house without another $76k sent to them to make my downpayment 50%. This was not required when I purchased the house and signed the contract. As it is they have $42k and I am not willing to give them more at this point. In these shaky economic times I cannot be positive they stay in business long enough to build my home. So I might be canceling too. We will see.

That’s awful news, Carolyn, I’m so sorry.

Have you tried calling any of the stick-home builders to see if they will take your call now? I don’t know about NV, but here, building has slowed way way down due to high interest rates. So all the trades are very hungry for work and available practically immediately.

We did find one new home builder, so it is now a high possibility. Tony is going to call him back next week. I am so uncomfortable with turning over more money to Palm Harbor, as it is I wonder how hard it is going to be to get back my deposit.

If they give you any crap, get a hold of Kyle Iboshi ([email protected]) at KGW. He's an investigative reporter and has helped a lot of people with companies that screw around with folks. Another option is Hasso Hering (hh-today.com/contact/)...he's local, was the former head honcho at the Albany Democrat-Herald and doesn't mind pissing people off. And I don't have an issue with going to war with a local company that isn't doing right by people.

Thank you. I have no issues about going to war with companies either.
