For the sake of splitting hairs, their “prices” actually went up by a third

It sort of makes a mockery of things when they put a deadline on a discount off some properties, a bit like a January sale or closing down sale, what will they think of next, two for one, buy one get one half price, or a multipack? 😆

It reminds me of those clothes stores that permanently have posters with ambiguous phrases like “Stock Clearance”, “Everything Must Go” and “Hurry While Stocks Last” plastered all over their windows. I guess it works for a while, but when the same shops still carries the same posters 5 years later then people see it for what it really is.

Chopera, how about ‘buy a packet of crisps or tin of pineapple chunks and get a free property’ ‘but hurry while stocks last, so next 10 years will be fine then’? 😉

Buy one flat and get the rest of the block free, bargin…! you just have to pay the community fees, water, electricity, rubbish collection IBI etc…….
Shouldn’t joke as the banks might actually start doing this?

itsme, what if those fees and bills are more expensive than the actual flat, wouldn’t be worth it then? Maybe that’s what will happen, Spain offloads all unsold new builds and then charges 1000’s of euros a year to live in them, job done all problems solved, all stock sold and a healthy income to replenish Spanish coffers.:wink: Only kidding, couldn’t really happen could it? 😯

On solvia they now invented the “Offer” style… Quanto pagarias?
Do you think they might accept crazy Christmas sales offers? I shall be in Spain for 2 weeks around Christmas, maybe I can put a chunk of money on their table and see if they just offer me the key… 😀

I think that idealista or fotocasa have a ‘what would you offer for the place’ option. I guess with the bank ones advertised at 50k you could offer 20k and have it accepted?
Flosmichael, I think that they’d bite your arm off for your cash!

I had made an offer of €100k, for a house that was being sold for €340k. (not a private seller ). I was not expecting a response a normal practise in Spain.
As it happened that I did get a response. This gave me an indication that they must be desparate to sell.
I am not aware as to who replied to me. The Developer or the Bank !! anyhow the respondent stated to me that my offer was insulting. My response to him was that I did not insult his family or friends, it was a business offer & he was welcome to come back to me with a counter offer. The counter offer did not come.
