      The benefits of buying pre-sale

      Buying a condo before it’s built can be difficult for the average buyer.

      Knowing how to read a builder’s floor plan, understanding what finishes are included and trusting that your condo will be built on time all take research and time spent with a sales representative to get comfortable with.

      Behind the branding of District Condos' 139 Market: A Q&A with the artist

      When developing the brand concept for District Condos’ 139 Market, we decided we wanted to tap into the artistic community that the Exchange is known for.

      To capture the feeling we get when roaming through the streets of the Exchange and visiting our favourite local hangouts, we thought we would incorporate a local artist’s work inspired by the area, rooting our branding in the community we know and love.

      Are you anxious to see a completed suite at The Charles? The Charles' 1- and 2-bedroom condos are now pre-selling, starting with December 2017 possessions, so there is still a while to wait before we introduce a display suite at the development. Though there are many benefits to buying in this stage of construction, including best selection and best pricing, we know it isn't always easy to make a decision without being able to experience a completed space.

      Pre-Sales 101

      Buying a condo in pre-sales, either before or during the construction process, can seem intimidating at first (see tips for buying from a floorplan drawing here), but it offers some incredible perks as a buyer.

      Tips for reading a builder's floorplan

      Even though we’re a builder, we get it: buying a new condo can be nerve-racking, especially for those unfamiliar with the process or buying for the first time. When you’re buying in pre-sales, before or during the construction period, sometimes all you get to see of your new home before purchasing is the builder’s floor plan (buying pre-sale has a huge set of advantages that come with it that we will cover in an upcoming post).

      Must-do activities before winter ends

      Beyond our riches of culture and architecture and people, Winnipeg is, first and foremost, a winter city. Spending a good part of the year under a blanket of white with temperatures usually far below zero, we’re seeing more and more Winnipeggers embrace the winter identity, thanks in large part to the many activities added to the cold months every year.

      Save money on your heating bill this winter

      That winter cold is upon us, which beyond the implication of parkas and driving away with your car still plugged in, also means increased energy bills to keep your home a cozy haven from the frigid temps.

      While new condos such as ours are already very energy efficient, who doesn’t want to save even more money (and reduce their energy output) if they can? Here are some simple ways you can save on your heating bill this winter:

      How Condo Fees Can Save You Money

      Condo living provides a lifestyle desired by many: ease of maintenance, security, less worry, a sense of community, and most often, desired location. With all these benefits, condo life also gets associated with its very own “fee,” a monthly payment oft misunderstood to be an additional monthly cost only encountered by condo owners.

      StreetSide Developments is incredibly proud to share that our District Condominiums 139 Market project has been named a finalist in the 2018 National Awards for Housing Excellence by the CHBA in the "Attached Homes – Mid- to High-Rise Condominium" category.

      It's a question we get asked a lot, since for most buyers, writing an offer to purchase a new condo is a first-time experience. The short answer is, you do not need to bring in an outside realtor with you when you view or purchase a new condo.

      With over 1000 square feet, two spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms, and generous closet space, The Buckingham floorplan at The Charles Condo makes downsizing from a larger home, or growing into a new space, a total breeze.

      Condo living provides many perks, one of the most appreciated being the fact that condos are low maintenance compared to houses, and their efficient use of space usually means less cleaning is required. That said, keeping your condo in tip top shape not only gives you a sparkling space to live in, but also helps protect your investment, helping you get top dollar for whenever you decide to sell. Read on for a list of cleaning tasks that are important to remember when maintaining your condo.
       

      Not much rivals the brick wall when it comes to an injection of character in a home or condo. There’s something about exposed brick that is just so … charming. Perhaps it’s the history it holds — a story of another time that serves as a constant reminder of the past. It’s also a welcome departure from basic drywall — a wall that has enough personality on its own that you don’t even need to paint it.

       
      People are very familiar with the idea of an apartment-style condo. Townhomes? Much less so. What is a townhome, and what makes it a suitable choice for a homeowner?

      Love it or hate it, snow in Winnipeg is a heavy part of the winter experience.

      If one of your plans for 2018 is to become a homeowner (or to purchase a new condo if you’ve owned before), then you’re on your way to making one of the biggest and most rewarding purchases in your lifetime. Historically, owning a home and building your equity is a sound financial choice, but more than that, owning a place of your own brings a sense a pride and let’s you settle in and personalize your home unlike renting.

      When it comes to buying a new condo, location, amenities and the layout are usually at the top of a homebuyer’s list. But there’s one factor that can really shape your experience above all else: who the developer is.

       

      As housing prices increase, the thought of saving a down payment for a home can be daunting, especially for younger generations just entering the job market.

      A new solution is popping up all over the country and gaining in popularity: co-buying a condo with a partner. Read on to learn more about co-buying and why it's worth consideration.

      Articles on saving for a down payment are certainly not hard to come across. They are full of practical advice like "Cut out your morning latte to save an extra $2000 a year!"

      But what if you're already all about the home brew and bagged lunch, and you're still stuck on how to make your savings grow? Well, we've put together 5 more ideas we hope will provide some new and unique ways (involving minimal effort) to help you save for the biggest purchase of your life.
