Buying a London Ontario Condo, New or Resale?

Over the years, we have found that one of the most common questions we are asked is about the advantages and disadvantages of buying a London Ontario condo, new or old. The answer is that there is really no way to generalize; each case requires its own assessment!

buying a condo, new or old

 

A lot of specific research and fact finding should be done before you contemplate purchasing a newly constructed home. It is easy to assume that the home will be well constructed with quality materials and workmanship, but that is not always the case.

Our experience has given us the skills to know exactly what to look for in a new home, the right questions to ask and also, who to direct them to! Not only that, we can help you make the calculations that will be important to your final decision.

 

 

Who is protecting you when you buy through a sales office or a  model show house! The builder has either  a professional real estate representative watching out for their interests or their own salaried/commission sales person representing the builder  and you need and deserve the same expert representation watching out for your interests.

Lawyers are not allowed to represent both parties in a real estate transaction, why a builder?

Before you make that big decision on buying a home in London Ontario, why not get together with us & discuss the pros and cons and then decide how to next start the process & save you some money!

Going to Open Houses? Going To Builder’s Models?

Have you missed out on some because they already have an offer or were sold before you even knew about it being for sale?

Is all that searching working for you  or is that you wish to avoid a pesky or bothersome real estate person (don’t blame you)?

Or, perhaps you are curious or you are in the ‘just thinking stage’ of real estate. Perhaps to purchase or sell.

So how do I, as a real estate professional, as a Broker of Record and Owner keep you, the curious, the maybe, the must have by the end of the month, the retiree, the downsizer, the upsizer, the DINK’s (double incomes,no kids), the tire kicker, deal maker, bread winner or just plain ready to move informed about real estate in London Ontario?
