Our community is growing as fast as our snowbanks

Dearest Friends,

Ottawa and its surrounding communities are growing, and that means new neighborhoods and developments. Many of these new homes sell before they are even built, which gives the buyers the power to choose which upgrades, features, and finishings they want for their space.  

If you like the benefits of living in a neighborhood but want the choice to customize your home from the ground up, purchasing a new build might be the right choice for you. Being the first owner of a new home has its advantages, and most developers offer turnkey services that take the stress out of the process for buyers. 

But buyer beware – showrooms and demo homes often display upgraded versions of the developer’s offerings, such as premium countertops and flooring, each of which come with an added cost. This is such a common practice, one developer made the news for creating a show home without any upgrades. To make sure you understand the difference between the base model and optional upgrades, pay close attention to the brochure and don’t be afraid to ask questions of your developer and Realtor. Check out this month’s recommended reading for more.
