New Condo Buying: Educate Yourself

Matthew LafontaineAdvice, Downtown Guelph, Planet Realty, Real Estate News

To be clear, this isn’t your typical post about how you should know what you’re getting into. After all, today’s consumers are very well educated and do more product research than ever before. So naturally,  to explain the importance of being an informed buyer would be redundant.

Rather, I thought it could be beneficial to anyone considering a purchase of a new condominium -the new RiverHouse Tricar development or otherwise- to look into the Ontario Real Estate Association’s public courses. For only $10, you can take a course which deals with special purchases, including new homes and condos, and how they differ from traditional forms of home ownership and transactions. This allows you to learn the information first-hand, straight from the source and in a comfortable environment.

For ten dollars and an hour of your time, OREA will teach you how condominiums operate, what questions you should ask, and what differs from buying a freehold property; among other key concepts.

An informed decision is always the best kind. That’s why it’s crucial to consult with experts before making the biggest investment you’ll make in your lifetime. This new offering allows you to personally learn the same information as the pros, without breaking the bank.

Visit the link to and have a look for yourself. They provide a course demo for their courses so you can try before you buy.
