Ian Watt: Hi good afternoon! It's Ian Watt in Downtown Vancouver. If it's too good to be true it definitely is. I have a client he's wondering if he should go with this other compaies. The other real estate offices offer AeroMiles or AirMiles or AeroMoves or whatever you they call it. A point system if you buy through them and he was under the impression with him buying a $600,000 condo he would get $600,000 AeroMiles or AirMiles or whatever they're called. There's a bunch of companies offering different things. But the truth be told it's actually capped at a certain number. It depends on which company you're dealing with. Well we looked into it for him. He would have gotten a round trip ticket that would have cost probably $200 if he had gone through that brokerage. Now thats fine. He can go that road if he wants it. That's the most important thing to him. But keep in mind, you are not gonna get $600,000 Airmiles for buying a $600,000 condo. It just doesn't work that way. There's a lot of fine print and you should look into it. If you're thinking about moving to another brokerage just for the AirMiles or AeroMiles or whatever you call them. My name's Ian Watt. You can always email me at ianwatt@ianwatt.ca. Thank you very much and have great day!
