How long does it take to build a new house?
Typically, a house is built in 6 to 8 months. Many factors influence construction time: type of house, size, location, contractor's resources, etc.
Is there a way to guarantee the delivery date of a property under construction?
Generally, the guaranteed delivery date is included in the agreement signed with the contractor. Depending on the situation, the promoter may have an obligation to compensate you in the event of a delay. Failure to meet the delivery date can result in significant costs for the buyer: the need for temporary accommodation, moving twice, and storage rental while waiting for construction to be completed.
Can we supervise the construction of a new house?
Yes and it is advisable to do so. Visiting the site is important to see if everything is going as planned. What’s more, it allows you to analyze elements of the building that will be difficult to observe when construction is finished, such as the foundation, insulation, etc.
Does the purchase of a new home include ground leveling and landscaping?
Earthworks, landscaping or other improvements may be extra. It depends on the agreement with the contractor. Pay special attention to these elements when signing the contract and factor them into your budget.
Are new homes and condos of better quality than used ones?
Usually yes, but new is hardly a guarantee of quality. Building materials have evolved a lot, as have work methods. These advances therefore give entrepreneurs the chance to build homes with exceptional performance. Make sure the contractor follows the building code.
Is it more expensive to buy a new condo than a used one?
No! When you buy a new condo on presale, your price is frozen when the purchase contract is signed while the market grows year after year. It should also be taken into account that condominiums that were built several years ago are more likely to need major renovations which can be costly for owners if the contingency fund is not sufficient.
Do you need to do an inspection before buying a new property?
Yes, it is very important to inspect a new building before taking possession. Checking carefully if everything has been built as agreed is highly recommended. Bringing in a home inspector is a wise decision.
Are insurance premiums higher for a new home?
The year of construction is usually not a significant factor in the premium calculation, but it may help lower the price slightly. However, if you buy a property that is LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified, your insurer may offer you cash back or a rebate of approximately 15%.
