Shady Builder?I signed up a client to a new construction deal with Toll Brothers in Dublin, CA back in April. Well, the market has changed and my clients backed out of the deal so they could buy a single family home with another builder instead of the townhome with Toll Brothers. Obviously Toll Brothers didn't want to lose them, so they tried to upsell them to one of their single family homes. They were willing to negotiate on the price, but brought up my commission and implied that the deal could work if they didn't have to pay the 3% broker's fee that I would be obligated to.That definitely doesn't seem like a good business practice for builders to be getting into, especially in a market where they need us even more.Any thoughts on this? Is there something that can be done to avoid these back alley deals??September 19 2007 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
