Always blame the printers

Was driving through Zetland last Thursday and saw a big banner, advertising new apartment developments for sale. 1-bedroom starting from $469k. This price seemed too good to be true, maybe it was just 1 or 2 units at that price and the rest are a lot more? I planned to pop into their office first thing Saturday morning.

The banner that I saw on Saturday, ie 2 days later looked more like this:


Yep — the price blacked out. When I asked the sales guys why the price was now covered, he blamed the printers for printing a 3-year old design. This banner was designed 3 years ago for stage 1 of the development. Now in stage …, prices for 1-bedroom units start from $600k+. Is it a good time to buy? It’s always a good time to buy.

As they say, if something looks too good to be true — it probably is.
