I wanna just quickly say my 2 cents about the linden vadd
1) There's no such a thing as saying that the vadd is making the prices in Linden go up it just can't be! Think about the Linden vadd just like a buyers agent, the vadd fights for the client on every single house to bring down the price with the seller to the cheapest price possible, whoever say's that the vadd is making the prices go up or whoever that says that the vadd is not affective with holding the prices low, just has no idea what he talking about.
2) I mentioned here many times already that every closing through the Linden vadd adds 10-15k to benefit the Linden community financially! With these closing money, there can be so many and such cheap shuttles every day going from and to Linden, also the busses for the kids, and so many other thing, even to help open the cheder the brokerage money did the best thing to the community possible. I'm not in the vadd and not involved at all, all I'm writing is just common sense.
So to summarize in short, the entire Linden success was only because of the vadd with helping the community grow and only because of the idea that the real astate brokerage should go directly for the community Linden is a success, without it there would be no Linden today. Even Bobov-45 that is stronger financially then kosen is also copying this idea.
So in short however buy's without the vadd is a real kofi tova. And if u have compliance against the vadd just call one of the vadd members they all try there very best to help and try to make make things ever better.
Sorry for my English but I'm really out of writing here for the next while but just couldn't ignore to respond on such conversation.
