/ Is this a bad time to buy an apartment in Poland?
Would you buy a car without an engine and without a colour so you could make it yourself according to their own taste or vision?
How about pieces of material so you could sow your own clothes together, specially made for your 'unique' tastes?
What an absurd comparison.
Cars usually come in various colours, with different engines, with different quality of interior and with many optional components that can be installed. As for the clothes example - seriously...
On the other side each flat is completely unique - and when I want to buy particular one and the bathroom is finished with for example dark tiles or has a tub instead of shower then that is a problem to me. Maybe you in the same position would be ok with this but please acknowledge that majority of Poles prefer it this way.
And you can ask anyone who is not from an ex-commie country and they will tell you that this is a waste of time in the same way the ridiculous things I have posted are a waste of time for the majority of people (mass production).
It does not matter what people in other countries think. Maybe it's a waste of time to them, but not to us. Capiche?
Have you bought anywhere out side of ex-communist countries to have a comparison with?
No, I haven't. I assume that it automatically invalidates my preference of deciding by myself on the standard of my apartment.
The natives prefer the ex-commie way because they have no choice and are too busy justifying why the way it is, is the best way.
Oh, they have a choice - a female friend of mine had her small flat finished by the developer. People simply mostly choose not to take this option - if it was otherwise then everyone would be following her path and developers would be doing their best to make some more money on the finishing. Capitalism, yay!
Shake things up a bit man, don't go with the established procedures :)
There are no procedures involved, only free market deciding what is good in given context.
And you will find you'll have more time on your hands and a few more paregroszy in your pocket.
That's very nice of you to drop pearls of wisdom around the 'ex-commie society' that does not know any better. Thanks!
