Ready to start your search for a New Home?

Buying a New Home (also commonly called a Pre-Sale) has unique challenges.  Unlike buying an existing home, you will need to consider the timing of Completion and plan accordingly. 

  • Will your income at the time of Completion support a loan if required?

  • Do you need to sell your home first? 

  • How reliable is the developer?

  • What are your options if your plans change before the building is completed?

These are just a few of the questions that need to be considered when buying a New Home. 

Browse our site to learn about the new developments in B.C. and then contact us to find out about availability, buyer incentives, financing options, rental options and everything you need to know to make a purchase that is right for you.

How do you get paid?

When you purchase a new home, we are paid a commission by the developer. 

How much are you paid?

It varies depending on the development but before you purchase a new home, you will be informed of our commission amount so you will know exactly how much we will be paid if you purchase that property.      

Will I get a discount if I buy directly from the developer?

No.   Commissions are already included in the developer's budget when they begin to market their development and will not change the price you pay.  If you don't have an agent representing you, the commission will just go back to the developer.

Step 1: DECIDE ON YOUR BUDGET 

Don't forget to budget for the following items!

  • New apartments and townhomes generally require a total Deposit of 10-25% depending on the development.  
     

  • The listed prices generally do not include the GST (Goods and Services Tax).   The GST is added on to the final amount owing on Completion. 
     

  • If you are not a resident of Canada, there is also a Foreign Buyers Tax that will be added on to the final amount owing on Completion.

Step 4: PURCHASE and COMPLETE THE SALE!

After you have selected a property, you will be given a Disclosure Statement, asked to sign a Purchase Agreement and pay a Deposit.    

The Disclosure Statement is a document detailing everything the developer intends to do on the project.   

​Before a purchase agreement is signed, a developer must provide a copy of the Disclosure Statement and the purchaser must sign a written statement acknowledging that he/she has had an opportunity to read the Disclosure Statement. ​

Most developments require a deposit of between $5,000 and 10% of the Purchase Price as the 1st Deposit Installment.   If you decide within 7 days that this was not the right selection for you, the deposit will be refunded to you.      
The total deposit required and how quickly the installments have to be paid will vary widely (from 5%-25%) depending on the development and the incentives being offered at the time of purchase.  
Usually the full deposit is paid within 6 months of the Purchase.  The final balance is paid once the building is completed, an Occupancy Permit has been issued and you are notified that your suite is ready.
