Helpful Tips When Looking for Quick Possession Homes

Posted on September 11, 2017

Ever looked at your home and thought, “it’s time for a change”? Maybe it’s too small and you need more space. Maybe you’re tired of the hassles that come with renting. Maybe you want to be in a better neighbourhood. Whatever your reason, if you’re ready to upgrade quickly, one of Lifestyle Homes quick possession homes is worth considering.

In addition to being able to move in sooner, there are many benefits of going the quick possession route including convenience and affordability. The fact that you’ll own a new home with modern features, a contemporary design, and Lifestyle’s exceptional build quality doesn’t hurt either. If this sounds appealing, here are a few other things to consider when buying a quick possession home.

Choose Your House and Your Timeline

Lifestyle always has a variety of houses ready or almost ready to move in to so no matter what needs you may have, we’ll be able to meet them. And since we choose features that are desired by prospective home buyers, our quick possession homes tend to be outfitted with almost everything you could hope for. Of course, the biggest draw is being able to move in sooner!  We’ll work within your timeline as best we can to ensure your move is convenient for you.

Know What You’re Looking For

With one glance at a blueprint, Lifestyle’s experienced builders can visualize what a home will look like. The rest of us? Not so much. If you’re more of a visual person and need to experience things firsthand, being able to tour your new home before you buy is an added benefit. It’s one thing to read about a three bedroom home, but actually experiencing it will help you figure out if it’ll work for you. You can confirm there’s enough space, get a feel for how things will flow, and make sure it has the features that’ll make you happy.

Prices That Work for You

When you’re having a home built, the price fluctuates as you choose different upgrades. These can add up quickly so if you’re worried about spending beyond your means, a quick possession home is your best option. Since the home is move in ready, the price is more or less set. As we said above, you may be able to add little things but for the most part, what you see is what you’ll get and what you’ll pay for. Even better, we sometimes offer promotions on our quick possession homes as an added incentive for you.

It’s Not Always Immediate

One thing to keep in mind is that when it comes to real estate, “quick” is a relative term. Yes, the purchase timeline is considerably shorter but there may still be a few things we need to take care of before you move in. That said, this can work to your benefit. As we wrap up the finishing touches on your home, you may be able to request modifications to add your own personality. It won’t be a full customization but changing a few little things here and there can really make it feel like home! Even with the short wait, it’s still far better than waiting months (or years!) for a house to be built.

Figure Out Warranty Info

As with any large purchase, you want to make sure it’s protected. Luckily Lifestyle Homes’ warranty is just as solid as their construction. Each home has a 12 month workmanship and materials warranty during which you’ll have our 24-hour emergency support. All our houses are also backed by the Alberta New Homes Protection Act. This covers one year for labour and materials, two years for delivery and distribution systems, five years for building envelope protection, and a full decade of protection for major structural components.

Find a Trustworthy Builder

Lifestyles Homes has an outstanding reputation for good reason. Not only are our homes well thought out and designed to maximize space, we also use extremely durable materials and build to a standard that exceeds today’s codes and meets planned future ones. We’re also in good standing with the industry’s leading warranty providers (Alberta New Home Warranty, Progressive New Home Warranty and Travelers Canada) so you can rest easy knowing that your investment is a sound one.

Although your possession date might be fast, you can feel confident that the building process wasn’t rushed with a Lifestyle Home. If convenience, affordability, and quality are just as important as a quick move in date, a quick possession home from Lifestyle Homes is your best bet. Contact us today to see what’s available.
