What to expect when you work with a home builder

If you have never purchased a brand new home before, you should know it’s a different experience than buying resale. However, there are many benefits to choosing new homes. Before you make the decision, here is a bit of information about what you can expect when you work with a new home builder.

The sales centre will be… 

  • A place for you to speak with a sales associate about your housing needs and want and a place to discuss size, styles, features, amenities, prices, location and timelines.
  • An opportunity to tour a model home.
  • A place to learn about the developer’s approach to design and the place to learn about the finishing options for the home.

The buying process will be… 

  • Clearly defined as to who is responsible for what and what you need to do after closing.
  • A time to go over the written contract.
  • A time to go over the schedule of the build and provide you with a dedicated point of contact and timelines for major construction milestones.

After your home is complete… 

  • You’ll receive an orientation tour as you take possession to explain all the features of your home and how to maintain it.
  • You’ll receive a detailed explanation as to what is covered by warranties.
  • You’ll receive a schedule of check-ups and a look at what the first year of your homeownership will entail.
