We contacted we buyuglyhouses.com and were contacted by a representative named Don Reid. Mr. Reid came by and assessed our house and made us the cash offer of $57,000.00. We agreed and a contract was signed. We were to be payed on May 15, 2012 no matter what. After the contract was signed we did not hear from Mr. Reid. He would not return phone calls, except on rare occasion after 9:30 P.M. He would not answer any of our questions. We were then told that he would be having an investor come by to see if they wanted to buy the house (from him) to which we agreed as per our contract.
Speaking of contracts, he would not give us a copy of the contract we signed with him. We left many messages about this. In the contract it stated that the only people that would be coming by were for termite checking and removal if needed. Also that no Realtors were involved. We had a surprise visit my a realtor named Justin Toney of Austin Properties inc. ( whom said that he works with Don Reid all the time) With him was a man by the name of Carl Dunn. For 3 about 3 weeks they came over daily, nit-picking every part of our house until i finally told them that we had already sold it to homevestors c/o webuyuglyhouses.com and that the repairs were not a part of the contract.
We had already agreed to sell the house to homevestors for $57,000.00 and that the only people mentioned in the contract who should be over here were the termite removal people. After that 3 weeks went by with no more contact from Don Reid, the man who agreed to buy the house. The man we already signed a contract with who is contractually obligated to pay us $57,000.00 on May 15, 2012. Today we finally got a call back from Don Reid who statet "yeah im sorry but im not going to be able to buy your house and I'm going to have to get out of the contract". We told him no, that we had already made our agreement and that he must pay.
He was very rude. Also, his lock is still on the front door with our house key inside. This man has been doing alot of illegal things and the fact that a company like homevestors has people like this working for them basically makes them the worst business I have ever dealt with. Never use we buy ugly houses for any reason. They have wasted our time, resources, lied to us multiple times and caused our house selling situation to become a nightmare that i would not wish on my worst enemies (if i had any). I was able to get a copy of the contract if anyone would like to see it. Especially a lawyer.
