For its part, promises to broker the sale of apartments for the shortest possible period of time, and you’re afraid to lose this House, have agreed on a deposit. Several weeks and buyers on the apartment yet, in Agency only “fed” with promises, recently lead buyers. Thus, an apartment to sell in time is not possible, and therefore, money to buy a House there.
