I think I'm probably legally bound, but I was hoping to find somebody who had chosen to discontinue the transaction.
The problem is going to be the amount of my loan. It will not be enough to build the house I want with UBuildIt without making some rather drastic changes to the plan.
With my lack of experience in building, I've done a few things backwards, or at least out of order.
I have the money for the build in my account now. I own the property now, and the old house that will be torn down for the rebuild. I also have all the plans for the house I want, due to the work done through the original contractor who priced himself out of the market. He had done quite a lot of work on the project and I paid him well for his time to that point.
The amount of money I have is all there will be, other than what I can add to it with my regular income.
I'm not willing to make the drastic changes to the plans in order to complete the build with UBuildIt subs and vendors. After doing a few hours of research, I've already found several places to buy materials that are much better priced. I really believe that without them involved I'll have sufficient money to build my "dream house".
Sure wish I'd found this book before I signed with them.
