Money and Investment

  • How come you are able to offer homes that are cheaper than conventional homes?

    Our homes are cheaper because:

    1. We only create apartments and terraced housing. These are significantly cheaper than standalone houses.
    2. We design a home for you, only including the features that you want or need
    3. We build harmonious neighbourhoods so some features are usually private are shared - like laundries and guest rooms.
  • If I buy a home from you, will it increase in value over time?

    Disclaimer: we're not qualified to offer financial advise - you'll need to talk to a financial advisory for that. The short answer is - we do not know.

    Also, we design our projects to primarily be make good homes rather than good "investment vehicles". However, we aim to make the as beautiful and liveable as possible.

    Having said that, we are not aware of any aspects that would mean our properties have worse resell values than similar style and size houses in the conventional market.  Some people will value the shared services and better neighbour networks, and, on the other hand, some people will perceive less value because of additional rules, required neighbour interaction, etc... 

     

  • Will the bank lend me money to buy a home from you?

    The short answer is yes. We realize that most people will need to borrow money to buy one of our homes so we'll make sure that banks will lend on these homes.

    Of course, buyers will have to meet certain criteria in order to be eligible for a loan. Generally, you will need a 10% deposit upfront and a 20% deposit at completion of the project. You'll also have to have sufficient disposable income to cover your mortgage payments. If you're worried about your ability to meet these criteria contact us and we can discuss your options.

  • How much do you charge?

    We do not charge you anything. Rather, we earn a commission from developers and banks for providing them projects that come with designs and customers. So we only make money when you get a home that you're delighted with.
