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.

    @mitulwe: There is no yahoo group. This is a private group and in order to be considered for an inclusion in the group, one needs to send an e-mail requesting to be included in the group.

    General note: The group endeavours to, hopefully, conclude the deal by the next month. So any person who showed interest about this group in the last few weeks, but could not follow up the initial interest for whatever reason and is still interested in joining our group should contact us by sending an e-mail stating clearly he/she is interested in joining our group.


    Hi Aman001,
    i sent a mail to the email id mentioned by guruy777. please send me the details
    Thx

  • hi everyone,
    for the latest news for ulwe,as we all know builders n agents are trying to increase the base rates by each passing day,as if they have a very high sale of the available project,which i find very amusing,
    i visited ulwe today for the second time to zero in on few projects,
    out of few i really liked shankeshwar plazzo in sector 9 (1 bhk) & mahavir mannat in sector 9(1bhk)
    i also liked todays construction project in sector 17,
    so if any1 of u have visited the same project,pls share ur views.,
    n for the group members i feel the intensity has gone down few knots,,so guys,,, lets step up n look to finalise on something
