There’s nothing quite like that new-home smell, and there’s no better way of obtaining it than through the purchase of a beautiful pre-construction home.

What to Know Before Buying A Pre-Construction Home
Before you purchase a pre-construction home, there are some important items that you’ll want to take into consideration:
Ensure your contract is complete. During the exploratory and verbal negotiation stages of a pre-construction home purchase, many things may be said about the deal and its various inclusions. You’ll want to be sure to get everything written into your contract, from the marble countertops to the bathroom finishes and beyond. This will ensure that the builder can’t pull a quick one on you and leave you with a home different from what you expected to receive. Your contract will be complicated and include far more than just home finishes, which is why you’ll want an expert real estate lawyer to review it before finalization.
Complete a thorough inspection. Be sure to complete a thorough inspection of the home prior to closing to ensure that there are no major blemishes or issues with the final product. This will prevent you from taking ownership of a home that is still in need of adjustments or which has not met your specific demands.
Assess Condo Inclusions. If your pre-development home happens to be a part of a condo corporation, be sure to assess the inclusions and any accompanying expenses. Most condo corporations will include summer and winter maintenance services, but they will come at a price.
Explore Legal Fees and Disbursements. The financial side of your deal will include a variety of legal related fees, disbursements, and expenses. Having an expert real estate lawyer review the contract before completion will ensure that you aren’t overpaying or being unjustly charged in any way, often saving you money in the long run.
