The benefits of buying a new condo!

Once you decide to buy a home, there are a lot of things to consider. What neighbourhood do I want to live in? Should I buy a condo or a house? What can I afford? Is there parking? And most buyers inevitably come to the question: should I buy new or renovate an older property? If you think about it, there are so many advantages to buying new! Here are just a few:

Stay within your budget
It’s hard to estimate exactly how much renovations will cost. There are always unexpected costs and sometimes even be nasty surprises. If you’re a first-time buyer or don’t know much about the process, buying a new condo can help you stick to your budget and enjoy peace of mind. You’ll know exactly how much it will cost. The Accès Condos sales team is here to help you estimate all your expenses, including municipal and school taxes, condo fees, and notary fees, so you can maximize your savings and take advantage of programs available to you such as financial aid from Ville de Montréal. Plus, by buying new, you sidestep energy-consuming renovations and can instead spend time with your family, enjoy your hobbies, and just live your life!

Peace of mind
As with any new condo purchase, when you buy an accredited Accès Condos unit, you’ll get a warranty plan similar to those offered by GCR (Garantie de construction résidentielle), APCHQ (Association des professionnels de la construction et de l’habitation du Québec), or ACQ (Association de la construction du Québec). You’ll also be covered by a plan to ensure your contractor is meeting all the legal and contractual terms and conditions. And with a new condo, you can be sure you’re living in a home that meets all the latest fire safety standards.
