I agree with Katy that most quoted price rises on the Costas are on paper and hardly achievable.
The usual suspect agents will tell clients their property has increased off-plan during construction, but try and achieve that is nigh on impossible. They might list it for more money but that ‘extra’ is only their commission anyway, the client doesn’t get it. The agent scores twice with their commissions even if they list the property for less money.
Same old scams now being perpetrated by same agents in other ’emerging’ markets. BUYERS BEWARE!!!!!
