Burbed reader Herve sent this clipping from one of those new home guide maps.
Although those giant SOLD signs have been out since early June, they are still pushing ads. But why advertise in such a low brow publication? Why not focus the ad spend on the Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times, or the Shanghai Times?
Is it desperation?
Nope. The answer is simple my friends – this is to make all of your friends and co-workers jealous. That’s right. By the time this hits the streets, all the units will be sold, and the demand will soar. People will drive up and down 101 just to say “Damnit! That’s the one that got away!”. And you’ll then have to drown your sorrows at Krispy Kreme and In-n-Out
You’ll be able to flip this for 15% without a problem. You’ll even be able to ask the buyer to sign a contract promising to feed the (mutant) squirrels.
Yep, this my friends is how conscientious the developers of Gables End are. Constantly thinking of you, the customer.
