Builders have been racking up sales records for the last 2 years or more and possession lead times are growing for buyers. One great option for buyers is to consider builder “quick occupancy” homes, spec homes, model homes or other inventory homes and your Realtor can help you shop for these.
We have a fabulous bungalow listing in Findlay Creek (MLS 1126904 at 602 Rockrose Way $662,581) that offers the best of all worlds: a relatively short delivery window (26 weeks) for a brand new construction home and the buyer ability to choose their own finishing’s with a $20,000 design centre bonus. This home is built to the drywall stage and the exterior is complete, including sod, driveway paving and partial fence.

When buyer’s sign a firm sales agreement they then go through the Design Centre process and choose flooring, cabinetry, trim, fixtures and paint to their liking. The builder systematically orders, stages and installs all those finishings’ and the property is ready for occupancy in just over 6 months. (at time of writing, this would allow those with an existing home to sell, the opportunity of selling that property in peak season next spring/summer)
Another bonus of this buying approach, is that construction is essentially completed on this street, so buyers are getting to move in to a finished block without the inherent annoyances of ongoing construction.
In a seller’s market with limited inventory and upwards price pressures, those buying new construction can tend to benefit from both their existing property and their new construction property appreciating in value, as they wait for the new home to be built.
Best listing deal in town if you buy this home with us!
