Shopping for a new home can be both exciting and stressful. It’s fun to imagine the lifestyle you’ll have as you research and explore different homes, but it can be intimidating making such a large decision. There are plenty of reasons to buy a new construction home and choosing one that is already being built is a great way to take some of the guesswork out of home-shopping.

Let’s explore the benefits of purchasing a home that is already under construction.

1. The ability to move in sooner

It can be hard to get excited about your new home when you find out it may be quite some time before you move in. While there are many advantages to buying a new construction home, some home-shoppers need to move in sooner than building timelines may accommodate.

As it suggests, purchasing a home that is already under construction means a lot of work has been done prior to signing the contract. If you’re relocating for work or want to be in before the school year starts, purchasing a home that is currently being built shortens the timeframe from the day you buy to the day you move in.

2. An expertly designed home

Starting day one of your home-shopping journey, you will be making one decision after another. Location, budget, bed and bath count, square footage – there are many considerations you have to make. Choosing your finishes during the design process can be one of the more exciting aspects in the new construction process, but it can also feel a bit overwhelming.

By buying a home that is already under construction, your finishes have already been selected by one of our expert designers ensuring you’ll have a cohesive, on-trend look you’ll love for years to come. You can move into a home that is stylish and beautiful without any of the stress or worry that you didn’t make the right selections.

3. Quality features and elevated finishes

Having a full team of dedicated designers who can collaborate and trade ideas with each other means your home will feel luxurious and custom without the hefty price tag – they are well-versed in the features and finishes worth investing in. By working with hundreds of new homeowners every year, our designers know what selections are not only popular and stylish, but practical for every lifestyle.

Every home by Brookfield Residential in Edmonton includes luxury-vinyl plank flooring and quartz countertops. Having high quality and durable materials included allows our designers to elevate your home even further with those little extras homeowners love like cabinet risers or a stylish kitchen backsplash.

Choosing a home already under construction means our designers have ensured the patterns, colours, and overall design flow together for a cohesive aesthetic. Their selections are on-trend, yet timeless so you don’t have to worry about falling in love with a home just to find the finishes are not your style.

4. Transparent and secure pricing

When you choose a home already under construction, you know the exact price for your home including all the chosen features and finishes. This is especially handy when dealing with Canada’s current interest rate changes.

Home prices have been in flux across the country for some time now, so having a set-in-stone price means you don’t need to worry about market shifts affecting the final price of your new home. Once you enter into your purchase contract, you can rest easy knowing the price won’t change and there won’t be a higher bidder you have to compete with.
