You’ll get that from us each and every time. We guarantee it.

What is a great deal?

A great deal means you get the highest value for each dollar spent. In Ottawa, we’ve offered the lowest purchase price on any comparable condo for many years now. That’s a large factor in determining the best return for your money.

For those interested, though there is still more you can do in ensuring you’re getting the best value for your money. Consider the following…

High condo fees

High condo fees simply mean you’re paying more for your condo. When shopping for your new home you’ll need to consider more than just the purchase price to see what you can afford. On top of your mortgage you’ll also need to pay condo fees and if they’re too high you’ll have to trim your home buying expectations.

When buying a condo, looking at what the advertised condo fees are for a new project is a great starting point. Even better though can be doing a bit of research into what a developer’s past projects’ condo fees currently are. This can indicate a lot about the developer’s overall construction quality and how honestly they advertised their condo fees.

Look at the amenities in a building you’re considering and decide if they are of real interest to you or not. Paying a full-time concierge or maintaining a pool can cost condo owners much more in condo fees then it would to enjoy these things from time to time in the neighbourhood they live. Plus you can choose to change or cancel these activities at any time.

How much future maintenance a building will need is largely determined by one factor, the quality of construction

Poor quality will cost you in the long run

Like a home, a condo building will age and require more maintenance over time. The best homes or buildings cannot simply be left for decades without care. What can make a big difference in how much future maintenance a building will need is determined largely by one factor, the quality of construction.

Surface condos are built to the highest construction standards. Our commitment to quality has been recognized numerous times by a host of local, provincial and national organizations.

Custom Design

Additional costs can add up quickly when you’re customizing a condo space to your unique needs and desires. Many developers are unwilling to make any custom design changes to a unit or will charge an exbornat price to do so.

Our time, expertise, additional architectural drawings and designs are all 100% free. Moving, changing or modifying a structure are all free services we include.

High-Quality Finishes

It’s unfortunate but many developers will offer limited, premade selection packages that primarily consist of low-cost, low-quality, options. These will be offered as the base package and purchaser will be left with one of two option: lower their expectations or open their wallets.

We offer our purchasers hundreds of free finish options. All of the options we offer are pre-upgraded, meaning we won’t insult you with cheap finishes in the hope that you’ll upgrade. The majority of our purchases leave 100% happy without spending an extra dollar.

If saving money is not an issue a professional designer is a great resource in helping you make your dream designs a reality. If that route interests you, we’re happy to recommend a few we’ve had the pleasure of working with over the years.
