Buying a Pre-construction Property

How It Works

Step 1 - research and select a project icon image

Step 1: Research and Select a Project

Before diving into pre-construction properties, conducting thorough research on various projects and neighbourhoods is crucial to find the one that aligns with your needs and preferences. Assess factors such as location, amenities, and future developments in the area. You can consult with a knowledgeable real estate agent, browse online listings, or attend developer presentations to gather essential information about prospective properties..

Step 2 - get pre-approval icon image

Step 2: Secure Financing and Pre-Approval

Once you've identified the perfect pre-construction project, it's time to arrange your finances. First, consult with a mortgage broker or financial institution to obtain pre-approval for a mortgage, which provides a clear understanding of your budget and the amount you can afford. This step is crucial as it ensures a smoother purchasing process and confirms your eligibility for financing when the time comes to close the deal.

Step 3 - Reserve unit and sign APS icon image square

Step 3: Reserve Your Unit and Sign the Agreement

After finalizing your preferred project and securing financial pre-approval, it's time to reserve your desired unit. You'll be required to sign an Agreement of Purchase and Sale (APS) with the developer, which includes crucial information about the property, such as the purchase price, deposit structure, and closing date. It's essential to have a real estate lawyer review the APS to ensure your interests are protected and to understand any additional terms and conditions.

Step 4 - Closing icon image square

Step 4: Monitor Construction Progress and Prepare for Closing

As your pre-construction property takes shape, staying informed about the construction progress and any potential changes to the closing date is vital. Regular communication with the developer or real estate agent can keep you updated on the project's status. Then, as the closing date approaches, finalize your mortgage, conduct a pre-delivery inspection, and prepare for the closing costs and adjustments. Once everything is in order, you'll be ready to take possession of your brand-new property in Ontario!
