Maybe it’s just me, and I’m still drunk on overpriced gin from last night, but if I was out Hollystown way looking to buy a gaff, I’d prefer if they knocked the €25k off the price of the house and I went to the forecourt and bought my own motor.
Like I say, I’m probably still drunk when I type this craziness…
Stop such crazy thinking POC.
This should help your mind to return to the safe zone. Sorry all for the O/T.
By following the simple advice I heard on a Medical TV show, I have finally found inner peace. A Doctor proclaimed the way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started. So I looked around my house to see things I’d started and hadn’t finished and, before leaving the house this morning, I finished off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of shhhardonay, a bodle of Baileys, a butle of vocka, a pockage of Prunglies, tha mainder of bot Prozic and Valum scriptins, the res of the Chesescke an a box a chocolets. Yu haf no idr who fkin gud I fel.
There has to be a dodge in this in that the cost of the car may be possibly offset against tax in some way for the developer and if you add to that this method also helps to maintain the higher sale cost of houses then its easy to see the method in their madness. I.E. give away anything but dont reduce the price.
Maybe when it comes down to the nitty-gritty, it might be possible to forgo the car and get the price reduction anyway on an individual basis. It would help keep the illusory house price stability facade but also sell houses.
I suppose the risk there is that potential buyers would be put off going for viewings/making offers in the first place.
I’d be curious of what the stamp duty implications are too, if you could potentially end up paying 7% extra in stamp duty on the sticker price of the jammer.
Discount? Well the latest report states that property here is 33% overvalued so the reduction in price would need to be €160k just to bring it in line with the rest of the world, and with that you could probably buy a share in that ski lodge in Austria. Now theres a thought.
All this free give aways still makes no sense to me!!!
Is it for tax?
Most replies will probably be developer stupidity but there must be another reason why developers feel the need to act like this. I’m sure some of the developers are astute business folk so why do they do this??
