My fiancé and I fell in love with a house back in February 2018. We decided to put an offer in and began picking out upgrades ( which my gal was extremely excited about) They told us we could expect to close April 30th. It seemed reasonable at the time. The house was pretty well along, but we noticed they haven’t yet paved a road. Time goes’s now well into March, still no sign of a road yet and we start to get concerned. Their agents assure us a road will be getting paved any day now. Fast forward and it’s now 2 weeks before our closing. Still nothing being done with the road. We are now worried since my fiancé is closing on her house the same day we close on our house and I already put a notice in for my apartment. A few days later we were informed that it wasn’t likely a road would get done in time. Great.... in the mean time my girl and her dogs move into my 1 bedroom apartment and I was able to extend for a few more weeks. Our new closing date was set for May 18th. Days went by and again we were informed that a road would not be going in yet. Now we lose my apartment and face either going into a hotel or temporary housing. We went with temporary housing which seemed like a better option financially at the time. Let me tell you, temporary housing adds up after a while, especially with pets. Our next target date of May 30th came and went we now set another longer closing date of June 27th. Now most people at this point would be walking away. But we felt like we had so much invested in this house...feeling like there was only so much longer they could string us along. Well it was now the middle of June and nothing was getting worked on still! At this point I’ve contacted the county, which I was told the whole time that we were at the mercy of the county, which was not the case. They kept telling me to get in contact with Parker Slack. I did and he informed me that all the utilities had to be redone before the road could be paved... What?! I just don’t understand why no one told us this to begin with. June 27th came and went. We started seeing progress on the road now, which made us excited. We then now have been living in temporary housing for about a month and were now leaving that to travel to MN to stay with my family for a little over a week. We extended our closing date to July 20th. We got back only to become disappointed. We had a walk through of the house when we got back with our realtor and their realtor. They seemed hopeful that we would be able to close on the 20th. It was at that damn moment we saw he road crew taking off with their equipment, which seemed strange. They never returned that week, and that was the last straw. We were informed later in the week that there was an electrical problem and closing by the end of the month seemed like a long shot. We were done. No more. Luckily enough we found a new house which we are completely in love with. My point to this long review is Maplewood Development is a complete joke. They cost us not only hundreds, maybe even a few thousand dolllars, our effected not only my work...but my fiancé’s work too and she works from home! Moral of the story everyone... don’t start building and especially selling and effing house without an EFFIN road!!!!!!!!! I hope their mistake not only haunts them for years to come, but drains them financially. Good Riddance, hope the next people don’t put up with your B.S. as long as we did.
