Interview with Eldar Adato about Purchasing Groups
Eldar Adato was interviewed by TheMarker following publication that a group of apartment purchasers in the exclusive Blue project submitted a claim against Canada Israel. Eldar explained more about purchasing groups and noted that "those who join purchasing groups become entrepreneurs together with the other group members and, as a result, are dependent on the management of the group. The group members have no final price for the apartment, there is no final date for occupancy, and there are no guarantees for the money that they pay. It is important to remember that despite the possibility of large savings in the value of the future apartment, which sometimes reaches 20%, there are many projects managed incorrectly and that sometimes even cost the group more money than they would pay if they were buying an apartment directly from a contractor."
