I hope everybody, is doing fine in this fluctuating market?
As you know, we are in the process of purchasing an apartment in Switzerland. 2 weeks ago, the architect office responsible of the whole project offered a discount on the remaining apartment, as it was probably difficult to sell them all. When I saw that, I jumped on my phone and called our contact and request some general explanation on the status of this project and at the end, I mentioned that I saw the price reduction and I wanted to know if they could do something for us. The person said that we were able to select the best apartment before everybody else and that only the less attractive lots remain, she was not sure, she could offer us a price reduction but she would come back to us.
So Last Friday, the person contacted me and says that they cannot make the same discount that for the remaining lots (2.5%), but she can give 1% or 15K CHF in our case. As I was not expecting to get something, I am very happy with the results of this quick phone call, this reduction, will allow us to buy extra stuffs when we will move in.
By the end of the month, we should have signed the contract and started to spend our own equity. I will keep you inform of this.
Cheers and good Sunday.
