Pre build condo playacar

Does anyone know the name of the new condo development just inside the playacar 5th avenue gate? Have received a few emails from realtors that the units have been discounted but they do not include the name of the development.

Ha. Often they hide other info as well, even the price. I had one sales agent refuse to even give me a ballpark until I went to the place with them. I went... it was double what I would have paid for a place like that... then they complained I wasted their time.

The reason they won't tell you the name, is because if you go direct, the developer may be more willing to discount the price. Basically, they can pay you, or they can pay the agent.

Be firm. Let them know that if they don't let you know the name and allow you to do your own due diligence, that you will find out anyway and go direct, or with another agent.

The industry is far less regulated than other places, so I know they're just trying to protect themselves...

I'll keep my eyes open the next time I go by and see if I can catch the name for you.
