East Vancouver Condo Developments
East Vancouver has two new developments near Main St in Mount Pleasant that are getting close to being finished and ready for move in. We’re seeing quite a few new listings from these building hit the market (still being sold by the developer) so new Buyers looking for something brand new will have some options.
Many of the units have already been snapped up by eager buyers purchasing off the floor plans from the building’s presentation centre (which have been open for months now). The benefit of building a condo building just before completion is you can (often, but not always) walk through the unit to see exactly how the unit feels and what the view is like.
Keep in mind, when buying units directly from the Developer, that you have to add a 5% tax to the sales price, so the final price is always higher than advertised. There are quite a few other differences when buying a brand new condo (or townhouse) unit directly from the developer, and these are situations where having your own realtor representation is of utmost importance – you want to know exactly what you’re paying, what you’re entitled too, and what the unit will be like when it’s completed. Developers have a team of Lawyers look over their contracts to ensure the contracts are in the Developers favour, so you want to make sure you have representation on your side to fight for your needs and wants. Give the WeLoveEastVan team a call – we’ve helped many buyers buy units directly from the developer – the best part? It won’t cost you a dime, in fact, it just might save you quite a few dollars and headaches.
