More Kiwis buying unbuilt apartments
Interviewed in The Herald by Andrew Weekes, we set out advice for buyers of off-plan apartments.
Mr Murray said the quality of apartments in Auckland had generally improved since a rash of "shoebox" dwellings sullied the industry last decade.
He said bad developers were still finding loopholes but honourable ones recognised a "trusted legacy" was needed if they aimed to sell more apartments in the future.
Mr Murray said buyers should take digital images and glossy brochures of some planned apartments with a grain of salt.
He urged aspiring buyers to check as many details as possible, and meticulously research furnishings, chattels and fittings.
