Real Estate Knowledge to Make an Informed Decision
We know that if you’re considering a real estate purchase, you probably have a ton of questions. You might want to know exactly when you can move into your condominium suite and what happens during the pre-construction and construction process. You might want to know where the best neighbourhoods are to invest in. Or, you might want to know why you should bother using an agent at all, when you can just head over to the on-site office and buy directly from the developer.
At GTA-Homes, we get asked these types of questions all the time and we know how important it is for you to feel like you have enough knowledge to make an informed decision. After all, there are so many options! Should you buy a downtown high-rise or a boutique building farther away from the core? What’s a better option for an income property, a one-bedroom or a two-bedroom? What direction of exposure is better for re-sale value? What happens if your building takes longer than expected to be constructed?
This is why we’ve put together a comprehensive package of info pages, where you can find answers to some of your most pressing questions about the Toronto real estate market. Here, we’ll address some common issues that our clients bring up. Still need clarification? Give us a call or send us a message and we’ll be happy to chat.

Simply put, it’s the sale – or “assignment” – of a contract to purchase a pre-construction condominium suite.
