By negotiating on behalf of groups of individuals planning to build a new home, Maisonia Deal says it can save buyers as much as 30 percent.
Mumbai-based GrOffr is already applying the group buying concept to real estate in India, and now Maisonia Deal aims to do something similar for those building a new home in France. By negotiating on behalf of groups of individuals planning to build a new home, Maisonia Deal says it can save buyers as much as 30 percent. Consumers begin by visiting the Maisonia Deal site and indicating the region in which they’d like to build their house. Maisonia Deal then displays a series of future homes it has available, along with descriptions and mockup illustrations. Also listed for each prospective home are the number of participating buyers required for the deal to take place, how many have already registered, the associated discounts and the time remaining on the offer. With benefits for both buyers and sellers, there appears to be no end in sight to the places and ways crowd clout can be applied. Time to set up something similar in your area?
