Some FAQs

How long is the interim occupancy period in a new build condo?

As long as it takes the real estate developer to complete the building and register it as a condo with your municipality. That can be a month or a year. Incidentally, real estate developers are only allowed to break even when charging interim occupancy fees. Trust us, they are as motivated as you are to see the condo registered.

Is it wrong to co-sign mortgages?

Co-signing on real estate makes you liable for the full mortgage. If your spouse, partner, or other co-signer defaults, the lender will come after you for the monthly payments. You could be hit with a demand letter asking you to pay the full mortgage on short notice, or have to live in or rent the home to keep the mortgage paid.

What does "hidden costs" mean?

New home owners understand they will have to make mortgage payments and pay property taxes when they buy a home. What they may not realize is that home buying involves hidden costs. Penalties to break a mortgage early, lender appraisal fees, mortgage default insurance for down payments under 20%, or mortgage life insurance to protect your family add up quickly. Moving costs, land transfer taxes, real estate lawyer fees, and disbursements like title searches, and home inspections are all part of these hidden, but significant costs.

Should you improve an offer if a realtor suggests it?

By that, we presume you mean in a multiple real estate offer situation. You decide if that’s feasible (remember mortgage pre-approval amounts aren’t a sure thing). A real estate seller who sends back an offer has turned yours down. You can walk away without penalty or change your offer. Know this, you may be the only real estate bidder they are negotiating with or one of many who asked to resubmit.
