    This is a very distorted article.

    Buying off the plan carries a number of risks which buyers should be aware of.

    1. Plans often have a size/dimension/adjustment tolerance allowable in the contract which the buyer has little/no control over.
    2. Contracts often favour the vendor not the buyer.
    3. End valuations can be sometimes problematic due to numbers of properties available and a valuers perceive risk rating.
    4. Contract require you to go unconditional before you are unconditional. You are vulnerable and may have difficulty settling at completion if your circumstances change.
    5. Make sure you know what else is planned in the area.
    6. Check strata fees. Often these are projected at an artificially (minimum) low level to make the purchase more attractive to potential buyers.
    7. Check rental estimations. Often difficult to achieve due to the number of properties available at the same time.
    8. Get your solicitor (independent of the process) to check contract carefully and listen to their advice carefully.
    9. Possible delays in construction.

    Hope this balances the debate a little.
