Frequently Asked Questions

What is the buying process?

The buying process for pre-construction development projects can vary depending on the developer and the specific project. However, here is a general overview of the process:

  1. Research: The first step in the buying process is to do your research. This includes researching the developer, the project, and the location. You’ll want to look at the developer’s track record, the project’s timeline and features, and the location’s amenities and future development plans.
  2. Reservation: Once you’ve identified a pre-construction project that you’re interested in, the next step is to identify and make a reservation for your desired unit. This typically involves submitting an information worksheet as well as putting down a deposit to secure a unit or a spot on the waiting list. During this phase, you’ll typically receive a copy of the project’s disclosure statement, which outlines important details such as the developer’s background, the project’s features, and the purchase price.
  3. Signing the contract: After making a reservation, the developer will typically prepare a purchase agreement that outlines the terms of the sale. This includes the purchase price, payment schedule, deposit amounts, and completion date. You’ll need to review and sign the contract, and may want to seek legal advice before doing so.
  4. Cooling-Off Period: In Ontario, the 10-day cooling-off period applies specifically to pre-construction condominium purchases, which allows buyers to have a window of time to reconsider their purchase and potentially back out of the agreement without any penalties or consequences. During this time it is recommended that buyers consult a lawyer to review the contract and also connect with a mortgage specialist to attain mortgage pre-approval.
  5. Deal Confirmation: On the 11th day, the deal automatically goes firm and the first deposit cheque is cashed.
  6. Construction: During this phase, you’ll typically receive regular updates on the project’s progress, and may have the opportunity to make design choices or upgrades depending on the developer’s policies.
  7. Completion and Closing: When the project is complete, the developer will typically provide you with a completion notice and arrange for a final inspection. Once the inspection is complete, you’ll typically close on the sale and take possession of the unit. This may involve paying a final balance, completing paperwork, and receiving keys and other necessary items.

Overall, the pre-construction buying process can be complex and requires careful research, attention to detail, and a willingness to be patient as the project progresses. Working with a knowledgeable real estate agent can help ensure a smooth and successful transaction.

Why do I provide my SIN #?

When opting to buy a pre-construction condominium, it is customary to provide a deposit that will be held in an Interest Bearing Trust Account for a period of approximately six to seven years. During this time, the developer has the right to collect the interest generated from these deposits. To comply with tax regulations and provide the appropriate tax documentation, the developer requires your SIN (Social Insurance Number). It is crucial to emphasize that your sensitive information is treated with the highest level of confidentiality and caution, and it is exclusively shared with the developer for the necessary purposes.

When do I need a mortgage?

Obtaining a mortgage is not necessary until the final possession of a condominium. In Toronto, final possession usually takes place approximately 2-4 years after the initial sales phase. Upon reaching the final possession stage, the deposit money you have previously paid will be allocated towards the total purchase price of the condominium. That being said, it is recommended that you work with Mortgage specialist early in the buying process to attain a pre-approval. This will allow you to set your personal budgetary constraints and also make you an attractive buyer in a competitive market.

What are the different launch stages?

Stage 1 – Private Sale
This initial stage is typically not publicly advertised and is exclusively available to the close friends and relatives of the developers. It does not usually involve a specific event for purchasing. Friends and family members receive invitations to purchase before the developer begins selling to the general public.

Stage 2 – Platinum Launch
The platinum launch phase is often considered the prime opportunity for investors to acquire a new condominium, offering various advantages such as:

  • Day 1 pricing, typically lower than subsequent stages of the condo launch
  • Attractive perks and incentives
  • Access to the best suite selection, often including the highly desirable “prime units”

Stage 3 – Vip Launch
VIP Agents, who specialize in selling pre-construction condominiums but at a lower volume compared to Platinum Agents, receive invitations to the second round of sales. During this stage, prices generally increase, perks and incentives may be removed, and the best suites are typically already sold.

Stage 4 – Treb Agent Launch
Developers open sales to any TREB (Toronto Real Estate Board) agent with potential clients. At this stage, a majority of the best suites have already been sold, and prices have significantly increased. However, developers might introduce additional “purchase perks” during this phase.

Stage 5 – Pre-Registration Invites
By registering on a developer’s website, you receive an invitation to purchase before the majority of the general public. At this point, you do not necessarily need an agent to make the purchase; however, having outside buyer representation is recommended to guide you through the process.

Stage 6 – Public Opening
The final stage of a condo launch is the public opening. By this stage, there have already been five previous purchase groups. In Toronto, a general rule of thumb is that if you can walk into a sales office without agent representation, it indicates that you are entering the process quite late.

What is an assignment sale?

An assignment sale is a type of real estate transaction in which the original buyer of a pre-construction project assigns, or transfers, their purchase agreement to a new buyer before the project is completed. Essentially, the original buyer sells their right to purchase the property to a new buyer, who then assumes the original buyer’s rights and obligations under the purchase agreement.

Assignment sales can be attractive to both buyers and sellers. For the original buyer, an assignment sale can provide an opportunity to sell the property before it is completed, potentially avoiding the need to make mortgage payments and pay other costs associated with owning the property. For the new buyer, an assignment sale can provide an opportunity to purchase a property before it is completed, potentially at a lower price than what would be available after the project is complete.

It’s important to note that assignment sales can be complex and involve certain risks and uncertainties. For example, the new buyer may not have the same level of input into the design and construction of the property as they would if they had purchased directly from the developer. Additionally, the new buyer may need to assume certain obligations and liabilities under the original purchase agreement, such as making required payments and complying with the terms of the agreement.

If you are considering an assignment sale, it’s important to work with a knowledgeable real estate agent or lawyer who can help guide you through the process and ensure that your rights and interests are protected.

Why do I need a real estate agent?

A real estate agent can provide a range of valuable services to buyers and sellers, including:

  1. Expertise and knowledge: A real estate agent can provide expertise and knowledge about the local market, including current market conditions, property values, and trends in the area. This can help you make informed decisions about buying or selling a property.
  2. Access to listings: A real estate agent can provide access to a wide range of property listings that may not be available to the general public. This can help you find properties that meet your specific needs and preferences.
  3. Negotiation skills: A real estate agent can provide valuable negotiation skills when it comes to buying or selling a property. They can help you navigate complex negotiations and ensure that your interests are protected.
  4. Guidance and support: A real estate agent can provide guidance and support throughout the entire buying or selling process. They can help you understand the legal and financial aspects of the transaction, provide referrals to other professionals such as lawyers or mortgage brokers, and help ensure that everything runs smoothly.
  5. Time-saving: A real estate agent can help you save time by handling many of the time-consuming tasks involved in buying or selling a property, such as scheduling appointments, conducting property showings, and handling paperwork and negotiations.

While it is possible to buy or sell a property without the help of a real estate agent, it can be a complex and time-consuming process. Working with a knowledgeable and experienced real estate agent can help ensure that your transaction goes smoothly and that your interests are protected throughout the process.

Why is buying pre-construction time-sensitive?

Buying pre-construction is time-sensitive because developers typically offer properties at a lower price during the pre-construction phase, in order to generate interest and secure financing for the project. As construction progresses and demand increases, prices may go up significantly.

Additionally, many pre-construction projects sell out quickly, sometimes within a matter of days or weeks, especially in high-demand areas. This is because buyers have the opportunity to purchase a property before it is built, which can be attractive to those who want to customize their space or who are looking for a long-term investment.

Once the pre-construction phase is over, the property is usually available for sale at market value, which can be significantly higher than the pre-construction price. This means that buyers who wait too long may miss out on the opportunity to purchase a property at a lower price, or may have to pay more for the same property later on.

Finally, buying pre-construction can also be time-sensitive because the delivery date of the property is often subject to change, depending on a range of factors such as construction delays, zoning changes, and financing issues. This means that buyers who are interested in a particular pre-construction project may need to act quickly in order to secure a unit and ensure that they receive it at the expected delivery date.

Overall, buying pre-construction can be a great way to secure a property at a lower price and with more customization options. However, it is important to act quickly and work with a knowledgeable real estate agent or lawyer to ensure that your interests are protected and that you are able to secure the property you want.
