Off-the-plan apartments and international buyers

Many apartments that are sold off-the-plan in Brisbane are marketed to buyers outside of Australia.  Examples include Meriton and Metro Property apartments.  A recent article points out the dangers of buying in such buildings:

"Overseas buyers can and often do pay too much for property because they do not fully understand the market they are entering. ...

The lesson here is developments where the sales are heavily skewed towards international buyers should set alarm bells ringing for local buyers."
