Does it cost x amount per sq mtr?
Everything in Poland is per metre square.
Here in the UK we would say it has 3 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, lounge etc.
Also in Ireland, e.g. it is a small two bed or a big onebed etc.
My theory is this:
Because it is not just Poland who sell new builds as a grey shell but all Ex-communist countries in Europe as far as I know.
I would have to say it is because of communism.
My theory (it is one of my weaker ones)
That during communism everybody got the same, now that is gone you may design and furnish your house/flat to your own tastes, revel in your individuality and express yourself.
So a Pole buys a house, then he has to finish it either by himself, with friends and family.
He does this bit by bit over the next 150 years because he thinks it will work out cheaper.
Now all men are guilty of this on some level but you must remember that the house/flat is uninhabitable, no floors toilets nothing...
The Poles are used to this and think it is cheaper.
The logic behind this is not very sound, it is of course cheaper for a developer to buy a batch of 200 toilets and fit them in because he is buying in bulk.
But of course some people just do not have the money.
This thread was meant to go both ways, a kind of balance.
Now what constructive/destructive criticisms can I say about where i am originally from (Ireland) about the property market??? ha ha ha,
Where do i start?
HHHmmmm this would take more time than i have ha ha ha
