The options and opportunities seem endless when it comes to buying a newly built home – with so many decisions to be made, it can sometimes feel overwhelming, but it doesn’t need to be. We’re going to delve into the three main types of new home purchases available at Brookfield Residential Calgary. Depending on your timeline and your new home vision, there is a home journey waiting for you.

Let’s explore the three different types of new homes:

1. A pre-sale home

This is the home most homebuyers think of when they hear “new construction.” You start from the beginning – choosing your lot, layout options, interior and exterior finishes, and following your home throughout the homebuilding process. The magic of a pre-sale home is that it’s a true reflection of you.  From lot selection and orientation (hello south facing backyards!) to gourmet kitchen layouts and hand-picked interior selections, our homeowners describe their build-from-scratch journey as an unforgettable one. This process takes about 6 – 8 months so if you’re looking to make a quick move, our other homebuying options may be a better fit for you.

2. A myStyle home

We often have homebuyers that need to get into a new home relatively quickly, but want the ability to experience the design process and select the interiors that suit their personal taste or lifestyle. In this case, myStyle has been the perfect fit to meet their wants in a home with the needs of a quicker possession date. With a myStyle home we’ve started to build our most popular floor plans in communities across Calgary, but paused construction at the drywall stage allowing our homebuyers the opportunity to choose their finishes. From purchase to possession day, this process takes approximately three months.

3. A quick possession/move-in ready home

Depending on the stage of completion, this home is either nearly completed or fully completed and ready for you to take possession. These types of homes are perfect for homebuyers with a shorter timeline, whether the result of a home sale, end of a lease, or relocating to Calgary. Quick possession homes also allow our homebuyers to move into a brand-new home where the design finishes have been selected and curated by an experienced Brookfield Residential interior designer. The result is a cohesive, stylized home – taking away the guesswork and offering a happily-ever-after without the wait.

Best of all, each of these new home options come complete with Brookfield Residential’s myCommand smart home package and industry leading two year customer care package.
