Kunal Sancheti Associates's Venezia at Baner continues with the special introductory offer of Rs.3,400 per sq.ft.

Property rate: big secret!

On 26th July '08 a joint development of Kunal Group and Sancheti Associates' "Venezia at Baner" was launched. Full page English ad, in Marathi newspaper Sakal, talked about everything but the property rate. Obviously, i called and called but could not talk to the sales executive. It means, i was not the only one who was trying to find out the booking rate.

Ultimately, when i could talk, the salesman did not disclose the rate on the phone. I should visit the site to understand the pricing, he insisted.

Special introductory offer:

My desire to have "an aura of happiness to the canvas of my life" (please, do not ask me what it means!) motivated me to visit Venezia...a symbol of my colorful dreams...which has come into existence at Baner, opposite Pashankar Auto, on Mumbai Bangalore highway.

When i saw the glass door of the attached toilet in the sample flat, i became very serious. I went into the flash back when watching my spouse taking a bath used to be my colorful dream and i started to unfold the canvas of my life...I had enough time because the salesman was busy in answering the phone calls and inviting the callers to the site to find out the real estate rates of 2 bhk, 2.5 bhk and 3 bhk luxurious apartments!

"Tell me!" the salesman said to me. Before i could open my mouth, he took the next call. "Tell me!" he said to me when he finished that call. "Shut your phone off" i wanted to say but i said, "You tell me. I am here to hear a special introductory offer!"

"Yes! This special introductory offer is only for today and tomorrow!! What are you looking for?" No, i did not tell him exactly what i was looking walls!

Special introductory offer for a week!

Next weekend, as expected, i saw the ad of Venezia at Baner in the newspaper. I called the site. Phone was not busy. Salesman took the call before the 4th ring. I told him about my site visit on the day of the launch and the special introductory offer. The salesman, not the earlier "tell me" salesman, but the new salesman said the introductory offer is extended for a week! On this week end i can book at the same rate. He invited me to visit the site with my Mrs!

At that point i realized that, i was avoiding to ask my wife about her colorful dreams!

Reduced number of specifications!

Yesterday, on August 25th, nearly after a month, i called the "tell me" salesman on his mobile. Because when i called the site office of "Venezia at Baner," a lady salesperson took my call. She told me that the property rate is the same. I can refer to the quotation i got when i visited the site on the day of the launch.

"Tell me" salesman said, "Yes, the booking rate is the same." "Rs. 3,400 per sq.ft.?" i asked. He said, "Yes! But a few specifications are changed! We have reduced the number of specifications to keep the introductory property rate!" "For example?" i asked. He said, "Modular kitchen and..... "

But i disconnected the phone. I was disappointed. I was 100 % sure, Kunal Sancheti Associates must have canceled the glass door of the toilet!

Please, tell me about the negotiations and discounts!

Tell me, in the comments, did not made a mistake by disconnecting the phone? He, the salesman of "Venezia at Baner," would have offered me a discount if i had visited the site again? What is your experience? Actually, i would like to know, at what property rate bookings are happening in Baner - Balewadi. Please, let me know in the comments.

Palash 2 and Topaz Park were not the only projects to offer the special scheme in Aundh Annex area - Wakad, Pimple Saudagar and Rahatani. There must be quite a few in Balewadi Baner. I am going to blog these offers. So, if you have not subscribed, please, subscribe for free to my Ravi Karandeekar's Pune Real Estate Blog.
