What does it mean that RE/MAX Team Paliwal -Gyanesh Paliwal is a “Platinum Agent”?

Platinum agents are the top-selling agents who get preferred status with developers and first access to new projects before regular agents and the public.

How does it benefit me as a buyer to work with RE/MAX Team Paliwal as my Platinum Agent?

Working with us as your Platinum agents give you several benefits

  1. You get the highest level of access in the building or in the new home project.
  2. You pay the lowest possible price for the unit or new home (prices are typically increased significantly after the Platinum sales event)
  3. The best possible incentives and terms.
  4. We the agents at RE/MAX Team Paliwal do not represent the builder. We represent you. You benefit from our expertise of being a top selling pre-construction agents and investors since 2007.
  5. Access to our personal network of mortgage brokers, lawyers, property management, HST rebate services, handymen and much more.
  6. Our services to you as a buyer are free

Do I get a cooling-off period? What is it for?

Yes, after you sign the contract to purchase a suite you will have a standard 10-day cooling-off period BUT only in case of high rise Condo units or Condo-Townhomes NOT when you buy Free Hold homes. It’s 10 calendar days, not business days from the time you sign.

The 10 days are primarily for 2 things: 1) to have a lawyer review your contract with you if you wish and 2) to get a mortgage pre-approval letter

Do I need to have a lawyer?

You don’t need to have a lawyer at the moment that you sign the agreement, however, we always recommend that you have a qualified lawyer review your agreement of purchase and sale after you sign and during your 10-day cooling-off period when you buy a Condo unit.

Do I need to have a mortgage pre-approval to buy?

95% of all builders will require you to provide them with proof of financing capability in order to purchase. This is not required before you sign a contract, but it is usually required within 30 to 60 days of signing.

Not sure where to begin? Don’t worry – getting a mortgage pre-approval is something that we may help you with. Contact us for more details.

Do the prices include HST?

 If you are purchasing for yourself and plan to move in, then yes, prices include the HST and there is no HST you will have to pay at final closing.

If you are purchasing as an investment, rental property, then you will have to pay approximately 7.8% of the purchase price as HST on final closing.

This money is remitted to the CRA and later on, we may help you and guide you as to how you can apply to the CRA immediately to get this money back. It usually takes about 1 to 3 month to get your rebate back.

What are my closing costs on a pre-construction condo or house?

Closing costs on a pre-construction condo or house will always be much higher than buying similar property under resale or existing ones. The closing cost of a brand new house or Condo will depend on the actual purchase price of the unit/house you are buying, but it also depends on the builder, the city that you are buying in, and the type of unit/house that you are buying.

Roughly speaking in Toronto you can expect to pay approximately 3-5% of the purchase price in closing costs when purchasing a brand new condo or house.

Contact RE/MAX Team Paliwal  for more details

Are there any ‘hidden’ costs when buying a pre-construction condo unit or home in Greater Toronto, Canada?

No, there are no hidden fees when buying pre-construction condos or houses because all fees must be disclosed in the agreement of purchase and sale. All purchasers must review the agreement and have a lawyer advise them on the exact closing cost amounts. If you need a lawyer to help you we can suggest to you to several expert law firms that will review your agreement in detail.

Is it possible to assign my condo or house? How much is the assignment fee?

Most condo or house builders do allow you to sell your unit/lot or house before its occupancy by you. This process is called selling by “assignment”.

There is usually an assignment fee and a legal fee associated with selling. Costs may range from $1000-10,000. Contact us for more details.
