It is common for unit owners to have trouble selling when their unit building has others selling also. It takes longer and negotiation is harder as the layouts and fittings are all the same. There is no point of difference.
So before you think you are getting the best deal - are you really?
We offer complete customization. In fact, in 11 years we have not built two houses exactly the same. Every one of our clients have something truly unique.
We provide a point of difference, and our clients benefit from this in the long term.
