Flintstone Homes Payment plan?
In marketing, we aim to attain zero buyers’ remorse. A properly informed buyer, by a salesperson who has a deep understanding of the customer's needs, rarely regrets the decision to buy. At Flintstone,
- Buyers are given sufficient time to think about our offers and compare options available in the market.
- By blocking 10% of the sale price in their bank account, they can reserve their choice home and survey other options, without committing any money at all. In the rare cases a buyer changes her/his mind, the blocked amount is released immediately.
- The payment plan after release the blocking amount would be based on the construction milestone.

How can I do to own home safely? What is safe home buying?
Safe home buying occurs when a buyer is informed to ensure his or her money’s worth will be delivered by the seller. The buyer is aware of the facts, made aware by the seller itself.
On the other hand, there is a danger when a seller fails to inform the buyer sufficiently. This will be the principle of Caveat Emptor, Latin for “buyer beware”. This is “it’s your responsibility” attitude that may place the burden of verification on the buyer, who is unlikely to know the details as well as the seller.
Homebuyers pay their hard-earned, long saved money for a home. Usually, when buying from real estate companies, contracts are signed on the promise of future delivery. Sometimes, this promise may be unfounded on real ground, literally. Worldwide, there are numerous real estate cases where contracts were signed and money accepted before design/build permits were obtained or land rights were legalized.
Although relatively few cases were reported in Ethiopia, one cannot ignore the risk posed on the market if such malpractices ever go unchecked. Recent proclamations[i] to protect consumers and enforce good trade practice (Proc No 685/2010) and administer urban land (Proc No 272/2011) are very important in making the market a safe
place to buy or sell homes. Sellers also have the professional responsibility to make customers aware of their legal rights and the basic steps for buyer prudence.
That is why Flintstone homes for you advocate safe buying and share their thoughts on two things to check when buying your home:
Developer’s legal right on the plot of land on which your home rests?
Legal right can be in the form of title deed, leasehold or a partnership/joint venture that involves at least one partner with a title deed or leasehold. Buyers must ask the seller to show them these documents.
Building Permit for the specific design of your choice?
By law (Proclamation no 624/2009 & Regulation no 243/2011) a permit is required before starting construction.
Permits are issued when
- There is a legal right to own and build on the land.
- The design satisfies the regulation stipulated for the specific plot of land.
- The design confirms to planning consent ( plan semimimnet).
Planning consent (plan semiminet) reduces the risk of the design being unaccepted by authorities. It states the height and number of the storey allowed, the % of green area, restrictions due to neighboring land use, etc. However, it cannot eliminate the risk of change in regulations that can make the final design unacceptable. This is common and a point of much frustration for most developers.
Local development plans (LDPs) are constantly changed to accommodate the latest opportunities to develop a specific urban area. That is one reason why Planning Consents (plan semimimnet) expire every 100 days. But Construction Permits lasts as long as the building is completed on schedule. Hence, a buyer is safe when (s)he makes a purchase after verifying that a permit has been issued for the construction.
For the average buyer, it may be difficult to verify that all these are satisfied by the seller or developer. But one can use the internet to ask or search for help. Websites of other sellers, previous buyers or local government web pages can be a lot of help. For instance, to check if the location is the same as shown on the title deed, the buyer can simply go to Google Earth and compare the surroundings on the title deed with those shown on the satellite image. Alternatively, the buyer can ask the seller's help.
One last thing to note is that all these things finally need to go into the sales agreement. That is very important. It is by the content of the contract that any dispute can later be resolved. Hence, read the details of the contract and compare it again with other sellers. Again, use the internet or ask for professional help whenever you are in need. Remember; before you part with your dear money, you have the upper hand. Therefore ask as much as you wish before paying. It will be more difficult once you have paid.
Home sellers may choose to hide behind the principle of Caveat Emptor (“Buyer Beware”). But not home builders. As home builders we aspire to exceed expectations from the day the customer sets foot in our salesroom to the day after moving in, the day that same customer declares, “Oh, how I love my Flintstone home!”
Let us all be wise and safe.
Wise buy makes a safe market.
