Came across a story in the New York Times this morning about a possible new fee in the housing market. It hasn't caught on yet, and let's hope it doesn't.
Some developers are trying to attach a clause to the sales contract of new homes that says the developer will receive 1% of the sales prices of the home every time it changes hands for the next 99 years. Wow. New home buyers - this is yet another reason to understand every piece of paper you are signing at closing.
