Pre-Sale Buying Process
Meet with a Mortgage Provider & determine your budget
While you’ll likely need pre-approval if you’re buying a presale condo, you won’t need to secure or start paying a mortgage until your property is fully built, with your mortgage loan payments beginning upon final closing.
Using a buyers agent or websites like Realtor.ca, search for the pre-sale condo that’s right for you.
Connect with the sales team
Connect with the sales team to get all the latest information about the pre-sale.
Submit an offer
Once you have reviewed the information and selected your desired unit, you will submit an offer to the seller.
Receive an accepted offer.
Now that you have an accepted offer, the 7-day rescission period begins. During this time you can walk away from the contract without any penalty. Once the rescission period is up, you must close on the purchase or risk losing the deposit.
Deposit paid and Subjects Removed.
You must submit a deposit pof 10% of the sale price within 48 hours of the 7-day rescission period.
3 month warning to closing
Because the condos are under construction, you will not know exactly when completion and possession will occur until the 3-month warning to closing.
This is where you will get to see your condo for the first time. You’ll walk-through and mark all the deficiencies. The builders will come through again to correct all the marked deficiencies.
Meet with your legal council to sign all purchase documents.
Key delivery/move in
The day is finally here! Collect the keys and take possession of your new condo. The developer will release a move-in schedule with each buyer's move-in time.
