Quote of the day: "Which comes first?"

“Banks are now demanding 20% and 25% down, AND that at least 70% of the condo development be sold before they will finance a condo buyer. But this brings us to that proverbial chicken and egg question – which comes first? How do you get 70% fill if banks won’t finance your buyers until you’re 70% full?”
