Buying A Show House - Should we be worried?

    Hey All,

    Looking for some advice here.

    My partner and I are currently house hunting and came across a lovely new development yesterday. I rang the agent and she informed me that their were no more units left and that they are currently selling the show house fully furnished for a bit more than the general asking price (Not really an issue for us as it's still within our budget).

    My concern is however that the house in question has been on the market since early December and still hasn't been sold which raises a few concerns as to why this is the case.

    Would anyone have any insight into why this might be the case or if it's something I should be worried about? Would it be building quality, the price, social housing next door or the fact that we might have just got very lucky. I would have thought in the current climate this would have been swept up.

    Thank you in advance!
