Hi All,

The primary reason for this new thread is discussing the advantages of forming a personal close knit group, as it gives a better bargaining power when negotiating with a builder. My family (my brother and I) and some close family friends have formed a group. We are already five (so would need at least 5 flats from a builder) and we all know each other for years now, all are serious in buying a property and moreover, can move quickly to finalise the deal if we like some property. Knowing each other also means we can discuss our strategy, compare notes and eventually talk to the builder directly to get a good group deal. We have also already zeroed down on 2 properties at Ulwe.

BTW, some weeks back I tried joining some internet sites. These sites form groups for a particular property and then approach the builders for a better rate. After joining some of these sites and interacting with people managing these sites, my primary concerns are three fold (i) these sites approach the builder on your behalf and if the deal goes through, these sites get their commission for the deal only from the builder (ii) so the discount these sites claim to get for you from the builder may not be all that huge. (iii) difficult to get in touch directly with the other members of the group and one can only communicate primarily with the owners of these internet sites.

    The new/prospective members: Two-three months back, owing to our group having, more or less, reached the required strength, the group membership was closed to the new members. However, since the decision to go ahead with the deal at that time was postponed for sometime and the group now intends reviving the negotiations with the builder(s) again soon, the group has decided to open the membership to the new members for the next few days.

    All the members who were unable to join the group up till June 2013 can apply now to join the group. Please send a message to my private inbox on this forum. If you have recently joined this forum and have less than 10 posts to your credit on this forum, you may be unable to send me a message to my inbox.

    New members are not encouraged to post their personal e-mails on this thread, as such a practice is frowned upon by the moderators of this forum.

    The membership to "Ulwe private group" would be definitely closed by this weekend (and so would this thread).

    Any new member still wanting to join the group and has not done so, should do so ASAP. The e-mail to contact the group is already listed by "guruy777" on page 8 of this thread.



    the email id given earlier is still active is it the same to contact for joining the group for buying flats
