So, you’re buying a condo – congratulations! This is an incredibly exciting time for first-time homeowners, but it’s also a time when key decision-making and important investigation is necessary. First, you need to be aware of the benefits of buying a resale condo or a pre-sale (new) condo, so read on.

Benefits of Buying a Condo (Resale)

  • What you see is what you get. Sometimes it’s difficult to visualize a space from well-decorated showrooms. When looking at resale condominiums, there are fewer unknowns because you can walk through the units and get a feel for them. You can see the view, the layout, and the shared spaces.
  • Get to know your neighbours. You can speak to them to get a sense of the community and ask if they are happy with the building.

Benefits of Buying a Condo (New)

  • Extra Time to Save. Once you have paid your deposit, you have more time to accumulate a percentage of the down payment while your condominium is being built.
