What's your experience cooking with a freestanding oven?

You don't move oven around like an armchair... Moving it anywhere would still required gas plumbing/electrical a to be accounted for also. I don't see moving it as any more…

How much compensation should I ask for

looking over these posts it appears you're mixing up scenarios that relate to the op dilemma and general concepts and statements not specific to the op.

Let me put it this way. Everything the builder spends money on to deliver you a house, you're paying that cost plus whatever margin they've tacked on.

Are you serious? I have to explain this to you?
It doesn't matter what a builder spends because they will recoup that and their profit from you. By your logic it's…

Eaves are often a preference because most people choosing them don't even understand the function of them. Plenty of modern and architectural designs do not have eaves full stop. And…

Then you're barking up the wrong tree, because my argument is that lack of eaves doesn't lower the market value.
You're talking about paying for a feature that is a…

all good. You can keep making your property choices on aesthetics, while the rest of the people who know a thing or two make money on value.

Even if it sells first, the buyers that missed out on that identical house will try for the one next door at the auction 15 minutes after the first. It's…

And I'm sorry but the ability to sell a house also isn't reflective of how it looks either. You can have an amazing looking house but if it's in a…

Market value is not the same as what you think would lower the value of a house. Value is determined by factors such as location, condition, adverse features such as…

Then you'd be just as wrong as the op. It does not affect market value. Have you ever seen a valuation used by lenders?
Besides if the only redeeming feature before…

Oh agree, but based on OPs series of posts he probably went into that meeting with no other goal in mind than getting some financial gain out of it.

Your contract should afford you and/or your agent to attend if it's a standard HIA contract. They cannot Refuse you. Just find the clause and tell them you'll be coming…

Don't bother with sales people opinions. Their job is to extract as much money as you can afford to pay for whatever it is they're selling.

As to quality, as long as it's not a bottom of the barrel home brand (ie "chef" "blanco" "technika" etc) it will be fine
