In all fairness, if I was a purchaser looking at the glossy brochures during pre-sales, how could anyone know that this was going to be the final product?
At the end of the day, no one really cares what the exterior looks like. It's about the insides - the finishings, the appliances etc. Yes, from the outside this is a POS, but to the everyday consumer, does that really matter? Will that affect resale value?
Will that view be compromised? Probably not.
Location comes first but, I definitely would say consumers do care how the exterior looks like. They just are being and have been overshadowed by the speculators for the past long while and into the indefinite future.
Speculators do not care about the exterior. Many times they're putting down $ before even seeing the exterior.
