  • Difficulty Selling 13th Floor apartments

    Hi,

    I have a 13th floor apartment in one of the soon to be completed projects by Mahagun. I just wanted to know how difficult it is to sell 13th floor apartments as compared to other floors. Has anybody ever faced any issues selling 13th floor apartment. Actually Mahagun has named the floor as 12A instead of 13. So is it just the number 13 that scares shit out of people or do they actually care about the count from the ground floor. Any insight/experience would be appreciated.

    Are there more people like me who would'nt mind buying a 13th floor (rather 12A) numbered flat.

    Thanks
    Rahul

    I do not have an issue about the number 13. I feel it is plain superstition. But I would go with my gut feeling - how I react to a place...is it cheerful, bright and sunny.

      My personal opinion : the floor number does not really matter, if everything else is ok, I wont hesitate buying it

        Really, would depend on the type of customer u get . Some people r real finicky & go strictly as per numerology & they would not touch yr. apartment . For, some 13 is another number & it really does not bother them ( but they may look to exploit this 13 ka chakkar by seeking some discounts ).

          The fundamental rule of business

          While selling, you are selling the best item in the market.

          While buying, you spot ONLY the negatives and highlight that to drive your point that you are buying just an OK item with so many flaws... and bargain hard!!

          Hope you got your answer.

              Well, some people have superstitions but before you meet them, there are brokers.
              Brokers will scare the hell out of you when you tell them you want to sell it. Whatever, rate is there in the market, they try to offer you much lower saying that no one will want to buy 13th floor.
              I have faced a similar situation in the past, where 5% front of my plot was on t-point. Brokers tried to offer me atleast 10% lower rate than the prevailing....so you have to be very careful.
              Though when they try to sell, they tell you the number of floor, in your case it is 12, "A" will be disclosed later. Similarly, some builders don't count 13th floor, so there, the number of first flat is 1401.
              You'll face some difficulty with brokers, but if you try hard, you'll be able to sell it at market price.
