“Can I see an example of the finished townhome?”

If the builder doesn’t have a final mock-up, ask them how/when you can get one. Don’t allow the process to move forward until you can see what your townhome will look like!

Builders worth your time will be able to finish your townhome with minimal delays. Your move-in date should only be months late (if it’s late at all), not years.

“Are there any indications there will be delays?”

As stated earlier, while the best builders of townhomes for sale in Etobicoke will be able to give you a relatively accurate date on when you can expect to move into your townhome some projects take longer than others. If there are any indications if there will be delays in the project due to special circumstances.

The important thing is they will not keep you in the dark about the building process and actually care about keeping your confidence in them. However, strikes are a cause of delay that the builder can not control.
