What We Will Discuss in the Following Videos!

A Presale Condo or Off Plan Property as they referred are to in the UK and elsewhere, is a contract between a Buyer and a Property Developer, were the Developer agrees to supply an as yet un-built condo before a certain date in the future in exchange for a deposit and the rest of the amount of money the Buyer agrees to pay when the condo is completed.

The Buyer gives a deposit when they sign the contract to buy the presale. In Vancouver the deposit for presale (off plan) condos is typically total 20% to 25% of the purchase price.

This deposit is usually paid in installments before the property is completed by the Developer, starting with an initial 5-10% deposit when the contract is signed and then the rest of the deposits totaling 20-25% over a period of between 9 months to several years (Depends on how long it takes to build the condo).

Once the property is built by the Developer, the Buyer is required to Complete on the property and pay the rest of the purchase price (Not including deposits already paid). Once the Buyer Completes on the Condo, they can move in or rent it out and it is no longer a Presale.

  1. Hi, just wondering how fast can you assign/sell the property if one were to buy the pre-sale condo. Is there industry restrictions on this or is it largely depends on the constructor? Thanks again for the great video.
