In addition to ready-to-live-in properties, buyers can choose a wide range of housing in off-plan residential complexes. As a rule, the developer can sell off-plan real estate before the project is put into operation. The main benefit of such transactions is savings. On average, apartments in off-plan projects are sold 25-30% cheaper than ready-made ones. The saving is dependent on the stage of construction, as the further it is from completion, the cheaper the housing is.
Each buyer can choose a flexible payment plan. You do not need to transfer the entire amount at once but only a small percentage of it. The initial payment depends on the developer and the residential complex, but on average it is 10-20%.
