When it comes to pre-construction condos, it’s a patient game buyers and investors play as they wait to see what were once just artist renderings finally come to fruition. As these new condos near completion, it is great news for both renters and buyers alike.

For those who have tirelessly been looking for a Toronto rental, when these new condos are complete, it means new rental inventory and an opportunity to land a never-before-lived-in condo!

For those who are looking to buy, you may be able to find investors looking to sell their Agreements of Purchase and Sale before closing, known as an Assignment, and get a good deal on a new product. (Read more about buying assignments in our recent blog, “Tips for Buying a Condo in 2019“.)
