Additional Notes

Complaint: This company has failed to provide the services they promised in their website. We signed a contract with them to assist with the sale of our house. The contract included a sign for the front of our house. One week after we signed the contract we still didn't have a sign. We requested a custom sign that costs an additional $59. We waited an additional week and the owner of this company claimed that he forgot to order the sign. so, he ordered it a week later than agreed upon. Once we installed the sign, the number listed on the sign for prospective buyers to locate us (the sellers) was an 'invalid' listing code.

Desired Settlement: We want a an immediate resolution to the problem; a credit for the days that the sign was not ordered, we want a refund of the extra money we had to pay for the 'custom' sign that didn't have correct or valid information on it.

Business Response: The ********** ordered our $399 Flat Fee MLS listing package on 4/19/2015 which did not include our upgraded $59 custom sign (see Flat Fee Package). This package is considered a Limited Representation listing where the Seller is responsible for representing themselves (see Limited Representation Agreement). Our companies responsibility on the package they ordered was to enter the listing into the RMLS, install a sign post and a standard sign and provide access to the selling tools on our website. The listing was entered into the RMLS on 4/20/2015 and emailed to them on 4/20/2015 (see MLS Listing Sheet) and the sign post and original sign was installed within the agreed to terms posted on our website (see Terms of Use). All products and services they ordered in the original purchase was provided timely and completely. The ********** accepted an offer on their home in less than 30 days, which is much faster than the typical days on market of homes in their area and they are projected to save approximately $12,000 compared to listing their home with a full price real estate agent.

The custom sign was ordered for $59 on 4/28/2015 and their credit card was charged on 4/30/2015 (receipts can be provided).

Can you clarify what their claim amount is? If it is for the $59 custom sign that was made and provided to them within one week of being ordered I will consider refunding that amount. If it is for any other amount, absolutely not.

Consumer Response:  
Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ********, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me. I will accept the refund of the $59 because the sign was delivered, but the MLS contact number was not activated at the time it was delivered as per request.
