Buy a condo and get free stuff…sometimes

Buying A New Construction Condo? Get Freebies while negotiating… Many developers do not like to drop their asking price a great deal as this may set a benchmark for any buyers behind you looking to buy into that building. So developers often will want to keep the sale price as high as possible in order to delude other buyers into thinking that selling prices are falling close to the asking price. Not uncommon. But what can you get out of a developer in order to keep the charade alive? Here are some common things that I see being thrown into a deal: A free parking spot Say 6 months free condo fees Free storage area Free custom interior upgrades A seller assist ( in terms of inflating the price, and giving you $$ back) Now certainly a developer may consider the value of the freebies into his bottom line… so these aren’t really 100% free….but you may find that the closer you get to a developers asking price, the more freebies you are going to acquire in the transaction.
