.........something to consider

B&W provided a BMW, i-3  and electric bicycles as part of their sales promotion.  The car was stolen and damaged before even going into use.  These so called EXTRAS have many implications to a new condo board, all adding to the monthly maintenance fees.  THe car will get sold from what I hear as will the bicycles.

The cost for the extra insurance and risk is nothing but a negative.  New builds don't have extra cash reserves to fund these EXTRAS provided by the builder.

 

I believe Bellewoods will have a similar provision.  Certainly an upscale building like Bellewoods doesn't require an in house vehicle and bicycles.  Owners can afford their own if they wish.

I had a repo company ask me outside my building on January 11th if they could check out the building's underground parking to see if they could find a black and white BMW.. they hinted about it being stolen.. wasn't really sure if THEY were trying to steal it. I looked for them and said there was only a black BMW i3. Only later did I realize they meant the condo black and white! Took a better look and there it was.. with the B & W wrap. Told them, and asked them to contact building management to get access. Apparently the car was pinging it's location.
