The Most Amazing Delusional 'developer' Sign Ever

Recommended Posts

Some new place in a nice area of Edinburgh. Originally marketed as 'boutique apartments'. Not sure what that means - does someone do your nails every day when you open your front door ?

Anyway - here is the sign. Amazing.

They clearly think it is still 2007. Their website has the square footage. About £280-300 per square foot. How does that compare to anywhere else ? Anyone know.

Prices

Boutique apartments......is that because you can't sell a pokey 2 bed flar for £370,000

The bit I like most is the ONLY SIX REMAINING........out of six FFS! :lol:

But you need to pay more attention to the sign...

These aren't just ordinary over-priced, badly built rabbit hutches.........

These are SAVILLS over-priced, badly built rabbit hutches.

Worth a lifetime of debt-slavery just for the cachet telling your freinds you bought through Savills.

Just found the details on ourproperty.co.uk.

Sale was completed on 13th September 2007. One day before NR !! Nae luck.

Purchased for £945k. Assuming the 'penthouse' is around 700k - they hope to get £3 million in sales. :o

Pure un-adulturated greed. I hope Porter Properties Ltd make a huge loss on this..

I know - but one out of 7 is hardly anything to shove up a big red letter sign about.

And as you say it has simply been reserved. So 0 sold out of 7.

Great stuff. :lol:

Six remaining out of six eh? Guess I better jump in and flash some cash :)

It says viewing between 1 and 3pm weekends. Now just make a mental picture of some sales rep sitting there watching the clouds go by. The only sound is the wind whistling by, and the July rainfall. Anyone for suicide?

£370K? Bargain! We've spent more than that on a restaurant bill for a moderately big group.

£ denotes Italian Lire, so £370K was about UKP150-180 at exchange rates when I was living in .it.

[edit - helps if I don't miss a 0 off]!

7 months on. No price reduction. Nothing sold.

An good example of the stagnation in the market.

Six must be some sort of secret code with Pwopety Developes. Or is it subliminal message or maybe a Freudian slip?

I have this nearby: http://www.hartpd.co.uk/

It advertises "only 6 apartments remaining" ever since 25th March 2008 as confirmed by Internet Wayback Machine http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.hartpd.co.uk/
